Make Mine A Double (Hammock)

Our Double Hammock is our best-selling and most popular model for a reason and it's not because everyone is always hammocking with a friend. While they're plenty big enough for two people, the material conforms to your body and you won't get the feeling that it's too big or that it swallows you up if you're in it solo.

Most of our customers prefer the Double when by themselves because it allows you to stretch out in the hammock (like having a bigger bed all to yourself), lay across it horizontally or wrap yourself up if you want. But here's the most important reason...

The Most Important Reason

If you check out our Sleeping In A Hammock Guide, you'll learn that the most comfortable way to lie in a hammock is actually at a slight angle across. It's how you create a flat surface for your back and legs and eliminates the C-shaped curve.

While all of our hammock models are extremely comfortable, if you're planning on spending long amounts of time in the hammock for napping or sleeping, you definitely want to be flat.  The extra width of the Double is what allows you to align your body at an angle to get flat and that's the primary reason that most of our customers choose the Double Hammock. The Double Hammock provides you with an extra 15 square feet of material with only a 4oz difference in weight over the Single!
