Price: We do not want you to have to spend a fortune to get a high quality hammock. That is why we have provided you with a list of hammocks ranging from a wide variety of prices. If you plan to use your hammock a lot, it would make sense to spend a little more money to get a higher quality hammock that will last you for many years.
Dimensions: A general rule when considering what hammock is best for you, is to consider the dimensions. The wider and longer the hammock is, the more comfortable it will be. This is especially true about sleeping hammocks used for backpacking.
Strength: It is important that your hammock is made of quality materials. If your hammock is not made of quality materials you could get dropped on the ground. Literally. The hammocks that we have compiled come from trusted manufacturers and are constructed to last for many years if they are treated with the proper care.
Capacity: Are you planning on using your hammock alone, or are you planning on sharing your hammock with your partner or friend. In general, two-person hammocks are wider and stronger, but they are also heavier as well. Both single person and hammocks and two person hammocks are a lot of fun so we have recommend both of them in our compiled list.
