The 6 Best Camping Hammocks of 2021

Hammocks have come a long way from the days of heavy canvas material that you’d only want to lug around for an all-body workout.

This means that bringing a hammock on your camping and backpacking trip is much less of an undertaking. Many of the best hammocks for camping can now pack down to the size of your water bottle!

While being a comfortable spot to kick back in, is an obvious requirement, many hammocks are going above and beyond, packing in features that might even make you want to leave your tent at home on your next camping trip. No matter what you’re dreaming of using your hammock for, these are some of the best camping hammocks of 2020:

One of the great benefits to the outdoors is the ability to stretch, spread out, and enjoy the space.

Designed specifically for hammock camping, the Roo Double XL is constructed with Gravitas™ fabric to ensure the most comfortable and secure hang, every time. The high-tech fabric reduces stretch over time, keeping the Roo Double XL in shape and adventure-ready.
