3 Questions to Ask Before Buying a Hammock
I wouldn't buy a hammock without these answers.
Question #1: Is it strong enough?
The biggest complaint I've heard when people buy other hammocks is that it broke and they ended up on the ground - sometimes painfully. One guy even broke his tailbone. Ouch!
The Rallt Camping Hammock safely holds up to 400 pounds. It does so by using a strong diamond ripstop fabric that's abrasion-resistant and very tear-resistant. The structural seams are triple-stitched. All the rope is 6mm thick and nautical-grade - yes, the same rope used on sailboats.
Question #2: Is it comfortable?
We use a breathable nylon body so that there is some give. That makes the body more durable and more comfortable.
However, we want the opposite for our ropes. Any stretch in the rope means the hammock will slowly sag lower and lower as the night goes on. You might end up on the ground in the middle of the night. Our ropes are all non-stretch polypropylene.
Your hammock also needs to be big enough for you and maybe one more. The Rallt Double is sized to be comfortable for two and Rallt Single is lightweight and portable but is still an absolute dream for one.
Question #3: Does it include hanging equipment?
Most hammocks don't include anything you need for hanging the hammock. You get the hammock but you can't use it! That's craziness.
We include two sections of rope for hanging. Each is a generous 10 feet long, making it possible to hang your hammock even when the trees are far apart - even over 20 feet.
For faster, easier setup, consider getting a set of Rallt Hammock Straps too.
