Hammock Manufacturers, Vendors, and Retailers

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.

      Very cool Dale! Any idea how much weight one of your hammocks will support? (I’ve got about 100 pounds on you.)

        Most hammocks support 400 lbs

      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”?

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

        Reply to Justin
          • Justin

            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, 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 I found a good company called Ripstop by the roll which seems to be a great material supply source for the DIY’s in us all….give it a look and see if you think it’s worth listing.

    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.

    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?

    Reply to Grant
    • Post authorDerek

      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.

      Reply to Derek
      • Grant

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

        Reply to Grant
        • Post authorDerek

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

      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

    Reply to rishi
    • Post authorDerek

      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.

    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.

    It looks like there’s a lot of DIY’s out there, but just thought I ‘d let you guys know about Hobo Hammocks. They only sell double hammocks, and straps are included so you don’t have to track down hanging straps after you purchase your hammock. They haven’t received their first shipment yet, but if you pre-order, you get the discounted price ($40)

    The other cool thing is that they are donating a meal to the homeless for every hammock sold, so if you give up on the DIY, or just feel like supporting a good cause, check out hobohammocks.com!

    ive trawled your website but haven’t found one brand that are UK based cottage and are almost identical to DD hammocks in their manufacturing scale/etc, some saying better quality for price, etc. They’re called tenth wonder hammocks and i was wondering if you’ve seen them (as you’ve seen DD) and if you’d ever consider reviewing them or consider them for hammock camping! their website is: http://www.twhammocks.co.uk/

    on another topic- whats the minimum weight limit or a good brand/model for a hammock to support 2 people (just to relax, not synchronised sleeping)? 220lb, 330lb? id like to get into hammocking after trying out my friends dd camping hammock, and having a dual purpose hammock would be useful! plus cant source an eno or grand trunk (what all the reviews indicate to) at a reasonable price, let alone find one in the uk!

    Hey there… I am moving to Hawaii October 4th.. (11 Days!) and I am seriously having an extremely difficult time choosing between a hennessy hammock w/tarp, and the sierra madre nube shelter/pares hammock… I am moving around a lot, working on different fruit farms permaculture landscaping… I prefer as little maintenance as possible and also to be able to pack up quick not worry much about moisture… Price isn’t really an issue since it will be my only home for a year… I just need good bug/rain protection so am def looking into one of these kit set ups, and hammock of course because keeps you off the ground, a lot of rain in hawaii… please please let me know if you have a suggestion… I am really hoping you see this in time… on one hand the hennessy seems a bit more low maintenance, but on the other hand the nube will protect from all weather/bugs but seems to have a slight moisture issue but can store your backpack safely. Comfort beyond the necessities is not really of my concern.. I don’t need much and wont be using an underquilt/insulation etc.. please let me know if you have a suggestion.

    • Post authorDerek

      I’d get the Hennessy Deep Jungle and get the radiant pad too. You’ll need a little something to keep you warm once you acclimatize. Upgrade to either the Monsoon tarp or the silnylon hex. Get the extra large snake skins. I think you’ll like the easy set up and use.

Plus they have exclusive collection of flying carpet hammocks which is ideal for reading, relaxing or browsing the Net. It raises the torso up, gently nests the head, provides support to the lower back, keeps the legs in a relaxed position, giving support where needed. With it’s unique design and high weight capacity (up to 180 kilos), the hammock Flying Carpet is truly comfortable for two.

      I have both an ENO DoubleNest and a Hangloose Hammock (it was my first and bought while in Maui last summer). Between the two I much prefer my Hangloose. The fabric feels better and it’s about 8″ longer which I like. The s-hooks suck, but I happen to have a bunch of extra climbing carabiners laying around so I swapped them out right away. I’ll be replacing the nautical rope as soon as my whoopieslings arrive in the mail. I’m going to be camping for 3 weeks in my hammock and will take both, but plan on making my Hangloose my sleeping rig and the ENO as a spare.

        Nice! I prefer longer hammocks as well. You could also use the ENO as a gear hammock.

    I recently bought a Hammock from Hobo Hammocks. Has a lifetime warranty and came with straps. I love it already. Surprised I didnt see them on your vendor list. hobohammocks.com I have yet to camp in it, but cant wait. Now I have to find a good cheap tarp.

    Hello there. I’ve conducted business with Wilderness Logics, Warbonnet Outdoors, DIY Gear Supply, AHE, Loopalien and Dutch Gear (in no particular order) and can confirm that these vendors are excellent. My questions were answered promptly and items purchased were shipped quickly and accurately. That being said, I must single out two vendors due to their exceptional customer service. Mr. Dutch ships faster than I can type and Wilderness Logics sews faster than I can speak 🙂 All kidding aside, there are some vendors that I think should be avoided at all cost. Simply Light Designs’ rudeness, obnoxiousness and lack of communication skills are simply off the charts. Just my 0.02.

    I’m looking for a hammock that can be used as a tent if needed with a broad rain fly, zip up big net, gear storage, complete system in one bag, and easy setup. I’m going to use it to thru hike the AT. What is the best choice?

      All hammocks can be used on the ground, it just depends on how “tent-like” you want it. Tarp camping is common on am the AT for weight savings and simplicity and that is essentially what hammock camping is. Some hammocks have tent poles that can give structure to the bivvy mode. Check out the Lawson Hammock, DD Jungle Hammock, and the Clark Jungle Hammock.
