So you have the perfect spot in mind and just need some help finding the right hammock for that space.
Most people hang their hammocks from trees in the garden, on ceilings and walls at home and on purpose built hammock stands.
If you are looking to hang you hammock on a stand then check out our hammock sets or you can configure your own stand and hammock combination by using our Compatibility Guide. Our stands are all weather proof and whether you go for a wooden or metal stand will come down to your budget.
If you are hanging the hammock between trees or walls then you will need to measure the space and ensure it is at least 2.5 - 6 meters wide. If you only have one tree or wall then you can use a Madera Post. You will also need fixings depending on how you are going to hang your hammock:

2. How big do you want the hammock to be?
Single Hammocksare very generous and are what most of our competitors call doubles. Our Double Hammocks will comfortably accommodate 2 adults whilst our Family/XL Hammocks will take three or more adults easily.
On each of our product pages we have specifications that shows the lying surface. This is the total space available for occupants to lie on. We also have load capacity which details the maximum weight the hammock can take. All worth keeping in mind when choosing the right size hammock.
3. Will it be left outside much?
To learn more about leaving hammocks and stands outside read our quick guide here.
4. What style and colour do you want?
Spreader Bar Hammock has a wooden pole which spreads out the bars at each end and gives the hammock a flatter profile. Some people prefer the look of these but they can be trickier to get in and out of because the material is so taut.
None Spreader Bar Hammocks or Classic Hammocks do not have a wooden pole which means there is more fabric so you can move around easier. On a windy day you can even use the fabric as a blanket, or turn you hammock into a make shift chair to sit upright in and they are usually a lot easier to get in and out of. If you are planning on sleeping in your hammock then a None Spreader Bar Hammock is more comfortable as you can sleep in a traditional diagonal position.
(ii) Cotton vs Nylon vs Weather Proof
Cotton hammocks are extremely comfortable, fast drying if you do get caught out in the rain and very breathable. They are definitely the most comfortable type of hammock and come in a vibrant array of colours and patterns.
Our Weather Proof Hammocks are made using EllTex fabric which is a cotton and polyester mix. They are resistant to UV rays and rain, so can be left out all year round. Despite them being a lot stronger than cotton, they still are very soft and comfortable.
Lastly there are Nylon Hammocks, ours are made using parachute silk. It is extrememly tear proof, breathable and super lightweight so perfect for anyone travelling around with a hammock.
(iii) Colours vs Patterns
This really comes down to your own preference. However darker colours and patterns will hide dirt better so your hammock will look cleaner for longer. Lighter colours on the other hand are less likely to fade in the sun.

Whether it’s backpacking, bike packing, motorcycling, or paddling, the lightweight, compact, two-person Flite+ Tree Tent is the on-the-go adventurers’ answer for comfortable, elevated camping.
The unique, cross-brace pole configuration offers extra headroom while a single, smaller ratchet and 1” webbing save significantly on weight. With an easily adjusted center strap, the sturdy double-hammock floor can be quickly converted into a larger single-hammock floor.
A 100%-waterproof, UV-resistant rainfly clips directly to the corners, and its distinct lateral wing cut keeps gear and ground dry below.
For extra beds or storage for gear, set up a T-mini Hammock underneath the Flite+ to create our lightest 'Stack.'
Everything you need to get off the ground packs neatly into a stylish, compact stuff sack including the tent, the poles, the rainfly, one ratchet and one weblock, and three 19’ lines of flat webbing.
