You raided the Lost Ark.
You united the Seven Kingdoms.
You restored balance to the Force (again).
Now you're looking for the World's Best Hammock...and you've found it.
This is the hammock that put us on the map.
It's called the Double, but don't think of it as just a two-person hammock.
Sure you can fit, and even sleep, two people comfortably. But the Trek Light Double Hammock is really all about you.
The key to relaxing or sleeping in a hammock like a pro is to lie at an angle across it to achieve a flat, better-than-your-bed-at-home surface that conforms to your body without pressure points.

For every hammock sold, we work with Trees For The Future to plant two trees in your honor.
Why is that so powerful? By helping small farmers and villages around the world with the planting of fruit & vegetable trees, shade trees and more, together we're going beyond basic environmental change. Your simple purchase creates a chain reaction that will feed the hungry, create small business, and generate a huge amount of social good and happiness. You get an amazing hammock and create a legacy of change.
Always test your hanging points for stability and never set up your hammock at a height where a fall or malfunction could cause injury to you, or in any way that could injure the people around you.
Equipment, even brand new equipment, can fail. Trees or structures that appear sturdy are not always what they seem. Be smart and always think about your safety first.
We realize that our customer base consists of responsible and knowledgeable outdoor lovers capable of maintaining a safe environment even in situations that appear dangerous to the outside eye. If you choose to disregard our safety recommendations and hang your hammock from anything above a safe height (3′ or higher), you should always have a safety backup plan in case of failure – a harness, safety ropes, etc. that would protect you from any injury.
When used properly and on trees with healthy, strong bark, your hammock suspension should not cause any damage to the tree. However, not all trees are created equal and some trees have a soft bark layer which can be damaged if you're not careful when you hang your hammock.
Killing a tree so you can enjoy a nap isn't a fair trade in our book. If you have any reason to think the tree you're hanging from could be damaged from your hammock use you should always add a layer of padding underneath your hammock ropes or hang elsewhere. Items like a towel or piece of clothing can be used to pad and protect trees while you're on the trail.
We always recommend getting out of your hammock and checking things out after a few minutes of use to make sure you're not causing any damage to the tree. It's up to you to be smart about your impact - leave no trace!!
AWESOME it's the best I have ever owned.
I researched full time hammock sleeping for those who have trouble with mattresses and got the Trek Light double because of the great reviews and reasonable price. I hung the hammock between two trees to check the height and width needed for use indoors. Now I can look for or build a wooden stand that fits this hammock and my 11 x 11 foot bedroom. (I cannot anchor it to these walls and need to avoid metal bed frames.) In this hammock lying diagonally, I am able to lie almost flat on my back with my upper torso/head slightly elevated and can easily shift my legs and arms to several positions most comfortable for me. I use no pillow or a flat one. I am 5 feet 8.5 inches tall with a thin frame. With a mattress I experience many pressure points, resulting in unrestful sleep. Also, I dislike heavy blankets so a hammock will create warm air space above me with blankets draped over and I can use a pad or quilt underneath in winter. It is August and I could feel the air circulating along my back as I tested this hammock, so it is quite breathable in summer weather. The fabric is very smooth and soft. I lounged in the hammock for about 45 minutes and felt quite relaxed with no pressure points! The gentle swaying is soothing. I had no trouble getting in and out of my hammock positioned 18 inches from the ground in the center. I'm looking forward to making these welcome changes for a restful sleep!
Great service! Got a nice hand written note in my package and when I emailed a questions I got a nice personal response, not a robot. I like how the hammock is so compact and can fit in my backpack! Great choice!
I bought another brand of hammock that has worked well for a few years but I wanted an upgrade. Trek Light Gear did not disappoint! I bought two double hammocks because every time I climb in mine the kids maul me until I get out so they can have it. This way everyone is happy and...RELAXED! There is just something so simple and satisfying about laying in a hammock, it's like all your other cares just wash away. TLG hammocks are very well made and have withstood the test of three kids climbing all over them and putting a lot of stress on the ends. I'd buy another one in a heart beat and most likely will sooner rather than later. (wife still needs one) TLG is a cool company and every communication with them has been very positive. I'll support someone like that any day. Buy one of these, set it up and lay in it everyday for a stress relief after work, you won't be disappointed.
