    This’d make a pretty sweet birthday present!

  2. Jonathan Coupal says:

    This looks really cool – just need to figure out where to put the tarp…

    • Derek says:

      After I made some modifications to the stand, I was able to hang any of my camping hammocks on it, including the 11′ BIAS Micro and a Hennessy Hammock. Spreading the struts apart enough not only allowed for longer hammocks, but also let me pitch a tarp directly to the stand. If you use the hammock that comes with the stand, you can use trekking poles to pitch the tarp over the stand.

    Saw the giveaway posted on hammockforums and said ‘Wow, this sounds great’. I wish I had this stand at Maxville games…. had to use my Frontline as a bivy, didn’t zip
    up properly and awoke to ants. Lots of ants. On me, in my blanket, on my exped mat, all over the inside of hammock. Had I been hanging, I would have at least zipped up properly (at least that is my excuse). Anywho, a great giveaway, thanks for the chance to you and the folks at Handy Hammock.

      I’ve got a trip coming up in the Grand Canyon next month and I’m planning to bring the Handy Hammock stand. It’s a great option for those spots where trees are missing or unavailable; opens up whole new areas for hammocks when backpacking.

  4. D. Kurfiss says:

    This would be great for me while motorcycle camping because many of the overnight stops I make won’t allow attachments to their trees

  5. Robert Jae says:

    Would love this for home and the balds.

  6. Travis Thompson says:

    I’d love to win this!

  7. swank says:


  8. James says:

    Tie in and hang anywhere! I’m game.

  9. larry says:

    Definitely an area in hammock camping that needs attention. Can’t wait to research this a little more.

  10. Jason says:

    the stand looks awesome. Good luck with the Canyon trip.

  11. Howard says:

    I’m in.

  12. Dave Cline says:

    I have been looking at a bug bivy pad as a “just in case” alternative. It looks like the Handy Hammock may be a more desirable option.

  13. stewart says:

    Using the hammock without trees? Yes please!

  14. eric says:

    This would be an awesome addition to my gear addiction… um, I mean, I would love to win this.

  15. This system looks like the answer to many woes regarding places where there aren’t enough trees. I find this particularly interesting for motorcycle camping where I may find myself just pulling off a roadway to camp along the side and not want to leave my bike. I look forward to reading more about them.

  16. mick says:

    This would be great for those treeless times……looks interesting.

  17. LNTCamper says:

    Looks like a fine addition to my Hennessy Hammock kit!

  18. Kyle says:

    This looks so intriguing.

  19. Jason says:

    Out here in the desert, where trees large enough to hang are scarce, one of these would be awesome!

  20. Robin Doull says:

    looks interesting.. no trees needed..

  21. TL says:

    Sweet deal. I’m on it!

  22. This would be a good test for some tree less hanging

  23. Kevin Welsh says:

    I saw this on the HF and had to sign up for it. Good luck every one.

  24. CrankyOldGuy says:

    I NEEd this! I’ve been caught to many times in non-foresty (forestey?) places with no place to hang.

  25. pbzncu says:

    We are planning a car camping trip in the Sonoran desert this summer. This setup would be great in that treeless wonderland.

  26. fluffythecat87 says:

    Having one of these would make it so much easier to hang when and where I want to…anytime and any place..

  27. SleepingBeauty says:

    Having one of these would be awesome.

  28. Timothy says:

    This would be great for scout trips

  29. Chad Howard says:

    Great for campground/parks where tying to trees is not allowed!

  30. Dragon Master says:

    So exited

  31. James Foley says:

    Great idea! Our backyard trees won’t support a hammock for another 5-10 years.

  32. Mike Mullen says:

    Thanks for posting the review and running the drawing. If I don’t win, I see a purchase in the near future.

  33. Robb Stacy says:

    I would love to use this on the AT this weekend.

  34. Darin Harth says:

    Looks like a great design. I can’t wait to try one out.

  35. Melanie says:

    Great idea and much easier and lighter than using reebar! Can’t wait to check it out!

  36. Peter Raiff says:

    This would make a great travel stand!

  37. mangus7175 says:

    Saw this on HF and FB…thanks for the chance!

  38. Peter says:

    Perfect hammock for treeless sites. Nice review, btw …

    • Derek says:

      Thanks Peter! It is a great stand for treeless areas. I’m planning to bring it with me, just in case, when I hang in the Grand Canyon this year.

  39. Jeremy Mader says:

    Seems like an awesome design

  40. Jeffrey says:

    Saw this on Hammock Forum, awesome give away!

  41. Matt says:

    This would be great for my back yard.

  42. Ron "Knotty" Mehringer says:

    Handy Hammock eliminates something a hammock normally requires…trees!

  43. Derek – great site! I’m planning to blog about one outdoors-related infographic a week on JustYourAverageHiker.com this year, ran into yours today, and had to do a mega-post, as it’d be cheating if I just highlighted one of yours every week for 2013 🙂 While it’s scheduled for September, I linked to all of your current infographics. Keep up the great work, love the blog!

  44. Damir says:

    Great for my backyard!

  45. Jason Miller says:

    Looks neat, I will love playing with it when I win (positive reinforcement)

  46. Pat says:

    Sick and slick. Very cool

  47. Nik says:

    Nice! good luck everyone!

  48. Michael says:

    That would be a great hang 😉

  49. AuntieCoosa says:

    This is an awesome product to take Kayak camping.

  50. Craig Small says:

    This would be an awesome late Christmas present. Plus I need a new hammock my oldest boy outgrew his and stole mine

  51. Derek says:

    Only four more days until we pick a winner! Thanks to everyone who has entered so far. If you have any feedback on using Rafflecopter, I’d love to hear it.

  52. Brandon says:

    This would be a great product to use on the treeless Boy Scout camping trips we take all of the time

  53. Chris says:


  54. No more hanging from my fence post! Also, naps in an open field!

  55. Tim Ahlstrom says:

    I am hammock poor and destitute… I really need a hammock!

  56. Becci Boersema says:

    I would be thrilled to win this hammock system.

  57. Great looking hammock stand!

  58. Mark Rash says:

    Where do I send you my shipping info? 😉

  59. motohanger says:

    Just the thing for my tree-less backyard!

  60. Eric M says:

    Handy Hammock looks like it could also have a couple indoor
    applications where you can’t put an eye bolt in the wall.. I’d love
    to experiment with it here in my college dorm room!

    • Derek says:

      Interesting thoughts! It isn’t free-standing so you’d have to figure out a way to anchor it to the ground. It may be trickier than bolts in the wall, but I’d be interested to see what you come up with.

  61. Kelly says:

    This would be the perfect hammock for an apartment dweller
    as well as an intro to hammock camping

    • Derek says:

      Like I said to Eric, it’s not free-standing, so an indoor application would be tricky without some sort of anchors.

  62. Shane Soto says:

    I love my hammocks. this is just super awesome!

  63. I’ve been watching these for a while, and am very interested in getting one for use at the beach or other treeless times when hauling a larger stand just isn’t an option.

  64. tates11 says:

    This is awesome for outdoor activities XD

  65. Roger Brill says:

    a day late and a hammock stand short. 🙁
