- Hello, fellow hammock people!! Thank you Ed for posting me...this is
a great thing!!
I have been selling hammocks for 3 years. We started with the
Parachute-Nylon Hammocks, which are the best hammocks around!! Over
the years we have added our UltraLight line of hammocks, which are e
similar to the Byer of Maine Hammocks, but a lot more updated.
Please feel free to browse our website www.thetravelhammock.com We
are in the process of making a new one! On our website you will find
all of our hammocks and other products.
Our price range for our hammocks is $19.99-$45.99.
Since starting my company, I have slept over 200 nights in my
hammocks. I have been everywhere from Bali/Thailand to most
campgrounds in the US. I am sure all of you know, but sleeping in a
hammock is the only way to go! I personally like sleeping in the
Double Travel Hammock..the extra room is worth it.
We currently are working on a Mos. Net and Tarp ( we had them, but
were not happy with them). We hope to have some new products this
We hang our hammocks using the lightest and most cost effective
way. Our hammock hanging kit consists of 2 10ft pieces 4.5mm
climbing rope....and for a cheap price. Are rope kits are pre-
knotted, to ensure perfect hammock hanging.
I have also noticed a lot of talk about keeping warm in a hammock.
Please look at our Silk Sleeping Bag Liners, which we invented
striclly for the hammock. It adds 10-12 degrees of warmth, perfect
for those hot nights.
We will be at TrailDays from May 13-15 in Damascus, VA, everyone
feel free to drop by and hang out!!
Looking forward to some nice discussions.
- I own two of these Single Travel Hammock, bought in two different places in
France, and under two different trade marks. I use one at home on a daily
basis, and have rigged the other one with 'a la Speer' webbing straps, snake
skins, and a bugnet (still not completely satisfied with this one...)
The parachute nylon (silk like) is very comfortable, and strong too: during
my last backpacking trip, I happened to sleep just over (on) a branch that I
didn't feel through my mattress, and have damaged the fabric quite a bit; as
it was my first (of ten) nights on the trail, I was very annoyed and try to
patch it with some kind of strong elastic bandage (Elastoplast in France),
but it wouldn't stay put, perhaps because of the waterproofing treatment I'd
made before leaving. Anyway, the hammock succeeded in carrying me during the
remaining nights without any further problem.
For the future, I'm still wondering whether I'll by an other one (only 22
EUR at the dealer closest home) or put a patch on the damaged area (the
little self-storing pocket provides enough fabric, and haven't been used
since I made the snake skins). Do you think sewing a patch could weaken the
