How to Choose the Right Hammock Online

Choose From Rope, Quilted, Portable, Camping and Chair-Style

Either hanging between two perfectly placed trees or from a stand or pole, the classic rope or quilted hammock is the perfect addition to a shady spot in the backyard. Campers also use lightweight, easily portable hammocks to take on camping and backpacking trips. For an armchair-like feel, an avid outdoor reader may prefer to sit up and swing in a hammock chair. And, finally, portable folding hammocks with a self-contained stand make a restful swaying snooze available anywhere.

The following hammocks will fit most needs and budgets; and each one is available online.

Quilted Beach Hammock for Extra Cushioning

With its deep azure and subtle tan colors, the Quilted Beach Hammock by Pawley’s Island creates a cool, beach-like ambiance in even the most land-locked backyard. Manufactured with two layers of a mildew-resistant, synthetic fabric made to feel like cotton, the hammock has a cushioned fiberfill insert. The hammock is 13 feet long and 55 inches wide, has oak spreader bars, and includes hardware rated to hold up to 450 pounds.

Lightweight Mosquito-Free Camping Hammock

From a compact 17-ounce, 9-inch-by-10-inch stuff sack, the Mosquito-Free Hammock Bliss unfolds to become bug-barring nylon hammock with a built-in zippered screen, perfect for camping, backpacking, or the backyard. The hammock’s large bed measures 118 by 57 inches and hangs from nylon rope attached to its four corners. Weight limit: 350 pounds. Flip the hammock over when you don’t need the screen for bug protection.

Classic Rope Hammock with a Colorful Twist

The jazzy Family Sized Rainbow Rope Hammock takes a break from white and delivers red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and violet colored rope. The vibrant rope is made of mildew resistant synthetic fibers and is threaded through solid oak spreader bars. All hanging hardware is included. Size: 60 by 84 inches.

A Portable Hammock that Goes Anywhere

L.L. Bean’s Folding Camp Hammock includes both a nylon/polyester hammock and a steel-tube stand that fold together into a carrying bag. Weighing just over 30 pounds, the green-and-white striped camp hammock measures 25 inches high by 40 inches wide by 95 inches long. For extra sturdiness, the hammock bed attaches to four points on the frame, which includes a mesh shelf to keep belongings off the ground. Pillow included.

Hanging Hammock Chair Lets Users Sit Upright

Sit up and swing in the Ultimate Hanging Air Chair. Available in burgundy, forest green, or natural off white, the chair fits anyone up to 250 pounds in an ergonomically designed chair with four spreader bars and a footrest. Use the included main hanging rope to dangle the chair from a sturdy tree or purchase a chair stand.

To swing safely in a hammock, follow the manufacturer’s directions carefully, paying special consideration to weight limits and hanging requirements. Classic hammocks require sturdy trees or specially made hammock stands or poles to provide adequate support.
