Trek Light Gear's FAQ & Tree of Knowledge

Parachute Hammocks, Not Hammock Parachutes


Because the material we use in our hammocks is a form of high grade parachute nylon, we suppose it's not completely crazy for people to ask whether the hammocks can also be used as mini-parachutes.  

Just no.

Trek Light Gear really does makes the best parachute hammocks on the planet, but that is very different than making hammock parachutes.

Your Trek Light Gear Hammock is NOT suitable for use as a parachute and we absolutely do not recommend it or encourage it no matter how low or high off the ground you are.  Hear that Darwin?
