Hammock Manufacturers

Hammock Manufacturers, Vendors, and Retailers (camping related)

I try to keep this table up-to-date with hammock manufacturers, vendors, and retailers who specialize in camping hammocks and related gear and accessories. I often get requests to add retailers who aren’t listed and I carefully consider every submission. However, the intent here is not to list boutique shops that specialize in rope hammocks that have little utility for recreational camping or even long-term sleeping. I have been adding shops that specialize in Mayan-sytyle or other South American hammocks because more and more people are using hammocks indoors as bed replacements. If you have found a retailer that isn’t listed, please drop me a line.

    I have started making ultra lite weight camping / lounging hammocks. They are made of rip stop nylon and each one is made to order.
    I am 6’2″ 250lb and use mine everyday. Now I have my whole family and all my friends enjoying hammocks.

    Most of them are traders , just a few a real manufacturer !!

    • Derek
      September 20, 2012 at 9:52 am

      There are only a few, maybe one or two, who resale the same hammocks with just a different label. A few others (mostly those who sell parachute nylon hammocks) get their hammocks made from the same factories in Indonesia, as this is one of the only places in the world where you can find parachute nylon fabric.

      If you check out my post that compares parachute nylon hammocks, you’ll notice a difference in dimensions among all of the hammocks. Each company who sells hammocks are getting them manufactured to their own specifications, even if they use the same factory as a competitor.

      So, I guess it depends on how you define “manufacturer” because, strictly speaking, you’re probably correct as very few procure the materials and sew the hammocks themselves. Economies of scale limit that somewhat.

      Many “cottage” manufacturers do everything in house: research, development, prototypes, product manufacturing, marketing, sales, and human resources to name a few. But even the cottage companies outsource manufacturing, even if it is with sewing shops in their communities, to meet demand.

      Maybe a better phrase would be “hammock companies”?

      • Justin

        What fabric available in the USA would most closely resemble the parachute material found in ENO and Yukon Outfitters hammocks?

        • Derek
          March 13, 2014 at 11:13 pm

          What you are looking for is a crinkle taffeta nylon. Nearly all those hammocks are produced in the same factories in Mali. The closest thing I’ve found are the tablecloths from the tablecloth factory http://theultimatehang.com/2013/10/make-hammock-3-minutes/

          • Justin
            March 14, 2014 at 7:58 am

            Do you know the name of factory in Mali? What is the closest fabric available in the US to this? The tablecloths are great, but just a little too shiny.

          • Derek

        Derek, You said that many companies manufacture in Indonesia. I live in Bali, Indonesia, and I’d be interested to hear of where/which companies are doing the manufacturing — if you know of such things. I’d love to pop by the factories and get some custom kit made by the guys with all the materials, equipment and know-how.

        • Derek
          November 17, 2014 at 7:03 pm

          They are right in Bali! I’ll see if I can get an address.

  3. November 7, 2012 at 8:39 pm

    Check out Sierra Madre Research. We design our own products AND founded our own manufacturing company in Managua, Nicaragua, SMr illuminate. We don’t use the common “parachute nylon material” that everyone else uses. Our fabric actually feels good on your skin, the high density thread count gives it a silky smooth finish / feel with just the right amount of stretch.

    SInce we own the manufacturing facility, we have created a very high standard for Quality Control on our products. Rather than relying on another company in Indonesia or China trying to meet their monthly quota.

      Just backed your newest kick starter Nubé

      • Derek
        August 15, 2013 at 10:44 am

        I’m sure they will appreciate it. Just to be clear, I am not associated with the Nubé project in any way, nor have I personally backed that particular project. It is great to see all the new hammock-related gear options coming out, however.

    There’s one out of Canada I didn’t see listed: Chrysalis by Helsdon Outdoors, bridge style hammock design.

    Found these guys a few weeks ago. Not sure if they are any good. Plan on getting one for a friend. Decent price for the package. http://appalachianhammock.com

    Hello Derek,

    In this list, as in the book, Kammok is listed as having tarps and netting, which are not yet available on their website. Is this what the (TBA) in the notes refers to?

    • Derek
      April 10, 2013 at 5:05 pm

      Good question, Grant, and thanks for the reminder — I updated Kammok’s listing online. When I was working on the first edition, Kammok was just emerging into the market. I met with the owner and we worked together to get as much up-to-date information as I could in print. Unfortunately, Kammok wasn’t able to bring all their products to market as quickly as hoped. It’s always a little risky in print publishing to take these sorts of gambles.

      • Grant
        April 10, 2013 at 9:05 pm

        On a related note, do you think the Funky Forest Tarp is a good fit for hanging under it in a Kammok Roo?

        • Derek
          April 10, 2013 at 9:52 pm

          Yes, absolutely. The Roo is a big hammock, but the Funky Forest Tarp will swallow it whole.

  7. May 15, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    Hi, I think you missed out Tenth Wonder Hammocks (twhammocks.co.uk) from the UK! I’ve got a hornet hammock and a sargasso tarp from them – similar price and quality to DD.

    • Derek
      May 15, 2013 at 2:47 pm

      Thanks! I just added them to my list.

    Another possible add would be Haiku Hammock Swings. ( http://www.e-hammockswings.com )

    • Derek
      September 8, 2013 at 11:47 am

      Thanks Ashley. This list is primarily for hammocks ideal for camping. I have specifically excluded rope-based hammocks, including woven Mayan and Brazilian hammocks because they are too heavy and bulky for camping and are not mildew resistant (certain models). I’m a huge fan of Mayan hammocks, however, but use and recommend them for indoor or limited backyard use. They are without doubt the most comfortable hammock, but the purpose of this list, I’m being somewhat selective.

    hey, do you give a ranking of the best hammocks in general, and maybe a listing of best hammocks for backpacking? i’d be interested in hearing what you have to say

    • Derek
      September 8, 2013 at 8:18 pm

      I’m working on a second edition of my book and I’ll have a better comparison list to show products side-by-side that may help in the selection process. I learned early on that the “best hammock” is a choice best left up to the user. Everyone has their own criteria on what “best” means. You might be interested in my a la carte hammock post where I explain some of these criteria and how they help you refine your decision process.

      • Rishi
        September 8, 2013 at 9:16 pm

        Yeah that makes sense.
        I’ll check out the post you reference.
        On another note,
        I’ve been using your app on the last 4 hammock hangs I did, but I wasn’t able to get it right (my own fault I’m sure) …really looking forward to figuring it out sometime soon

        • Derek
          September 9, 2013 at 8:36 am

          Rishi, let me know what questions you have about the app.

    I am using a hennessey hammock for the past 3 years. They are great and very comfortable to sleep in. I use the oversized fly to provide me protection and a nice porch roof when it is rainimg or a large shady spot to relax.

  13. January 7, 2014 at 7:48 pm

    Hey Derek! For those looking to do DIY hammocks/tarps/quilt, feel free to check out http://www.ripstopbytheroll.com. I started the site specifically to cater to the DIY guy/gal by offering DIY fabric at wholesale prices without having to buy in bulk. Looking forward to the second edition of the book.

    • Derek
      March 31, 2014 at 12:17 pm

      Great addition. I’ve updated my list, thanks.

  14. January 16, 2014 at 12:38 pm

    Hi Derek,

    Maybe Lesovik Duch (Ghost)- interesting hammock from Poland?

    Do you know this producer? http://www.ddhammocks.com/

    sincerely, Leslie from Hungary

    • Derek
      January 23, 2014 at 8:09 am

      Yes, DD Hammocks is a great company with great products. I just received a Jungle Hammock from them that I’ve been reviewing and I really like it. The other models are also highly praised.

  16. January 25, 2014 at 2:58 pm

    Hi derek!

    Reassured! I also have a DD Frontline hammock and I really like him. I am inexperienced in this area so I was cold at first forest sleeping in the hammock :-) I study a lot of useful things your site. Your book has been published by in Hungarian language?

    • Derek
      March 31, 2014 at 12:13 pm

      Not yet! I haven’t done any translations yet, but it is a great idea that I will consider for the e-book.

    You ever have a look at http://www.harmonyhammocks.com? I see they have a decent FB site and product images, but was wondering if you’ve ever tried the product since it’s not in your vendor list.

    • Derek
      July 22, 2014 at 10:57 am

      Thanks! Yes, I’ve seen that site. I’ve added them to the list.

      • July 22, 2014 at 11:28 am

        Any experience with Harmony Hammocks, before I commit to buying? I’ll have a look at Warbonnet as well.

        • Derek
          July 22, 2014 at 12:08 pm

          I dot have any experience with them. I looked at their mayan hammocks, which are fairly expensive. I didn’t see a lot of camping hammocks. The Warbonnet brand is fantastic. Great hammocks.

  20. August 8, 2014 at 9:28 am

    Is their a way to make this chart more iPad friendly? I enjoy reading all your articles!

    • Derek
      August 8, 2014 at 9:39 am

      Thanks for the feedback. I’ll look into it.

  21. August 10, 2014 at 12:58 pm

    Hi Derek, enjoyed the book and the site. I just recently picked up my first hammock…Snugpak Jungle hammock w/mosquito net. Haven’t camped with it yet but have set it up. Easy and pretty comfortable (so far). I went with the Kammok straps right off so I wouldn’t have to deal with knots.
    I didn’t see Snugpak or Proforce listed on your site. Have you had any experience with them?
    Thanks, Kevin

    • Derek
      August 12, 2014 at 11:13 pm

    Great site Derek, I’m really enjoying reading your articles and watching the videos. Do you have any experience with the Yukon Outfitters hammocks/rainfly?

    • Derek
      September 9, 2014 at 6:03 am

      Not specifically. The hammock looks very similar to the grand trunk skeeter beeter and byer if Maine Moskito. I have not tested the tarp.

  23. Kevin
    September 9, 2014 at 6:31 am

    Well I’m still a newbie but pretty easy to set up and plenty roomy. Already tore the netting which was a known issue. I find the tarp is the harder part to get right. Looking forward to getting more practice.

  24. September 14, 2014 at 11:26 am

    I love this site! Is there anyway you might incorporate links into the gear/vendor list/table? It’s a challenge to copy/paste, especially on mobile devices, and then backtrack to your page to look at other vendors, and then repeat…

    • Derek
      September 14, 2014 at 1:11 pm

      Thanks. Yes, I’ll see. My last table had links but I changed the format and lost them. I’ll get that fixed.
