17788RE: [Hammock Camping] Hanging distance?
- Jul 3, 2007With a ridgeline probably a little less than 8 feet or the limits of the
ridgeline whichever comes first. Without a ridgeline probably 9 to 10 feet.
Really a lot depends on your comfort level. For instance a Speer 8.5 can
probably be pulled taunt between to trees 9 feet apart but then you have to
deal with shoulder squeeze issues. On an Hennessey that won't be an issue
but getting in and out without stepping on exposed roots could be an issue.
I believe that most hammock manufactures recommend something in the 10 to 14
foot region as optimal.

So what's the shortest dstance between supports you can hang a
hammock in and still have it properly supported and hung?
Don't own a hammock yet (soon to be remedied)
