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.
That’s awesome! Do you sell them through a website or in person?
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
Most of them are traders , just a few a real manufacturer !!
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?
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 https://theultimatehang.com/2013/10/make-hammock-3-minutes/
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.
Send me a note to my email and we can talk offline.
Hey Derek Sierra Madre Research makes insulation now.
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.
They are right in Bali! I’ll see if I can get an address.
I would also like information on where hammocks are made in Bali. My son is visiting his cousin who lives there, soon and would like to pick up some hammocks and other gear.
There are lots of shops along the shore front. Those aren’t the big factory stores but they make nice hammocks that are similar. https://m.youtube.com/watch?list=PL_FhFt_zYJ9lnXGVSYigy5ida9u3fUN8f&index=1&v=X1BedZNL1J0
Hi Derek, this is Rico from Ticket to the Moon hammocks.
Our Fair Trade and Eco Friendly company is indeed located in Bali, Indonesia. At the moment we manufacture close to 50.000 hammocks a month plus accessories, and we produce for most of the top quality brands in the market.
We have an Open Factory policy, so you or any member of this forum are welcome to come to visit us, and see what we do here.
Awesome! Thank you for this update and offer!
Can you please also provide the locations of the big factory stores?
Hi Mary, I sell nice hammocks, hammock chairs made in Brazil, great design, many models, the manufacturer has been for 30 years in that business. If you have interest to take a look at the full catalogue let me know. We sell at bulk only… Thank you Antonio email: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
In Brazil has a hammock manufacture since 2002. http://www.kampa.com.br
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.
Inspiring Adventure through Comfort
Thanks Richard! I will add you to my list!
Just backed your newest kick starter Nubé
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.
I’ll add them! Thanks for the update.
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
Thanks for the info! I just added them.

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?
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.
On a related note, do you think the Funky Forest Tarp is a good fit for hanging under it in a Kammok Roo?
Yes, absolutely. The Roo is a big hammock, but the Funky Forest Tarp will swallow it whole.
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.
Thanks! I just added them to my list.
Out of business or I could not get to their site list
Leigh Lo Under Quilts
Northwoods Hammock Company
Tree to Tree Trail Gear
White Mountain Hammocks
Thanks. I’ll get the list updated.
Another possible add would be Haiku Hammock Swings. ( http://www.e-hammockswings.com )
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
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.
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
Rishi, let me know what questions you have about the app.
My company makes ripstop nylon hammocks (http://www.etsy.com/shop/MichiganGearHammocks)
Fantastic, thanks. Added.
Pingback: Hammock Camping for Scouts - Scoutmastercg.com
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.
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.
Great addition. I’ve updated my list, thanks.
Maybe Lesovik Duch (Ghost)- interesting hammock from Poland?
This page is great, although I do not speak perfect English.
Do you know this producer? http://www.ddhammocks.com/
sincerely, Leslie from Hungary
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.
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?
Not yet! I haven’t done any translations yet, but it is a great idea that I will consider for the e-book.
Warbonnet hammocks. The best of the best!
Not listed: Infinity Outfitter, LLC Hammocks and suspension systems. Sioux Falls, SD.
Thanks. I just added them.
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.
Thanks! Yes, I’ve seen that site. I’ve added them to the list.
Any experience with Harmony Hammocks, before I commit to buying? I’ll have a look at Warbonnet as well.
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.
Is their a way to make this chart more iPad friendly? I enjoy reading all your articles!
Thanks for the feedback. I’ll look into it.
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 for the heads-up! I’ll go check them out and make sure I’ve got them.
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?
Not specifically. The hammock looks very similar to the grand trunk skeeter beeter and byer if Maine Moskito. I have not tested the tarp.
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.
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…
Thanks. Yes, I’ll see. My last table had links but I changed the format and lost them. I’ll get that fixed.
What about Dutchwaregear?
2T’s Outdoors carries hammock chairs, hammock accessories as well as many other backpacking things.
Pingback: camping hammock - BMW Luxury Touring Community
and the AntiGravityGear that you recommended (-:
very friendly and helpful as well
RVing and Hammocks go hand in hand. Thanks for sharing this extensive list.
Yukon Outfitters are not on this list?
It is alphabetical. Should be there. Paginate to the end of the list.
I found my mistake. I had switched from a Google Sheet to another system. It should be on there now.
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!
Pingback: Tips For Pitch-Perfect Hammock Camping - The Ultimate Hang
I’m looking for companies who want to sell in Japan. The mountainous landscape of Japan makes it difficult for most people to find a place to pitch a tent. A few are using DD Hammocks now. There’s a big market here. If I can get some hammocks, I’ll make some videos in Japanese and English to get the ball rolling. I’ve been here 15 years. American.
Sounds like a fun venture! There are a few brands I know who’ve been expanding their market. I would reach out to Warbonnet, Yukon Outfitters, ENO, Amok, Sierra Madre Research, Grand Trunk, Hammock Bliss, Jacks R Better, and Kammok. Those are a few I can think of with the capacity for large orders.
Thanks for the reply. I’ll start chatting with people and seeing what comes up.
Hi Mike, I sell nice hammocks, hammock chairs made in Brazil, great design, many models, the manufacturer has been for 30 years in that business. If you have interest to take a look at the full catalogue let me know. Thank you Antonio email: email@example.com
Check out Hummingbird Hammocks when you get the chance: http://www.hummingbirdhammocks.com/
There was an honerable mention of American Made companies on Gear Junkie’s website. I checked them out and got in touch. They’ve got a tarp in developement as we speak, and I’ll be testing their single hammock with soft carabiners and tree straps in Alaska this summer 🙂
Yes! I’ve tested their hammock but I need to add them to my list. Thanks for the reminder.
One more to the list http://www.amokequipment.com/
Hi Derek- I have some questions on hammock fabric etc that I was hoping to ask you. Wanted to message you but can’t find your contact form? Let me know. Thanks!
Please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Derek –
Thank you so much for this list – It’s AMAZING! Do you know anything about the bunyanesque hammock and where it is manufactured? I read that it is manufactured in Colorado but I can not seem to find any additional information. Thanks so much!
If I’m not mistaken, that is the Mega hammock from Hummingbird hammock. I’ll double check with my sources. And yes, those are made in Colorado. http://www.hummingbirdhammocks.com/shop/mega/
Thanks for the quick response! It definitely looks like the same item. I really appreciate your help!!
Hi all nice to know all of you and know these community. I am Yunita from Jakarta Indonesia we are manufacturer for hammock accesories like straps, webbing backpack, rope and etc.we have good quality for tree nylon straps/hammock straps width 30mm. the lab report test by GRAB TEST ( ASTM D5304,SPEED 12 IN/MM breaking strength : 2042.5 KG. pls do not hesitate to contact me at my email email@example.com or phone 062215451040/062215451046 or skype yunita.harianja
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!
kind regards- Monty
i just looked at the comments and vendors more closely- and saw tenth wonder. sorry, im awfully ignorant sometimes. would you ever review and of their products however?
Thanks Monty. For two to lounge in a hammock, you really just need a hammock that will be rated to support your combined weight.
On your list, I did not see ENO. Have you used/reviewed their products at all?
I just received a setup for my 24th birthday and I’m very excited to get into the hammock lifestyle.
Welcome to the hang! Yes, I’ve reviewed nearly all of ENOs products. Good quality and very popular. Compared with some hammock brands they are a bit pedestrian but they are great for a highly modular and versatile hammock system.
And now I feel like a potato because I did see it on your list, but am still curious your thoughts/recommendations regarding ENO
Hey. I’m an over the road truck driver and I have been doing a lot of hiking this summer and have been using a hammock. My sleep has been phenomenal. I want to put a hammock in my truck but am really limited on space, probably 10 feet. I’m only 5 ‘ 8” any options out there for this application or any good sites on building my own. Any advice would be appreciated.
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.
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.
I am 6’1″ 170 lb by the way!
Derek, Update us to show hammocks as well as all of the other gear. We added them to the store this summer along with our Beginner, Apprentice and Journeyman Hammock Kits.
i want to include one more vendor to this list. Its Arambol Hammocks from goa india.You can find more info at htpp://arambol.com. 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.
Have you checked out Hangloose Hammocks Hawaii? They have awesome hammocks from five different countries, and they provide fair trade with all the famlies and people they work with. They have two shops in Maui, Hawaii, and the owners have traveled to all the locations they get their hammocks from to make sure they are providing fair trade. Check out their website: hangloosehammockshawaii.com
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 sell Brazilian handcraft hammocks with high quality. For more details, prices, catalogue please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

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.
FYI – Hippie Hammocks is offline.
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.
Have you heard about Kampa Equipamentos, from Brazil? Their gear are amazing!
I’ll have to check them out. Thanks.
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.
Hammeck is no longer making hammocks at this point
Here in Brazil we love Kampa. Its the best hammock ever. http://www.kampa.com.br Seeya
so how do you like Sierra Madrea
They are great! Check out my review.
I love my Paris and Nube by Sierra Madre Research
Was curious if you could add Out Gear Recreation to this list? They also manufacture great hammocks Thanks
You seem to have overlooked Loco Libre Gear. We have been makers of premium down quilts for over 3 years now. Thanks for the wealth of knowledge you bring to the hammock community.
Wondering if I can get my site added to the directory of manufacturers? Thanks!
Yes, thanks Jake.
Thank you for your wonderful hammock resource site and book.
I watched the video you had posted “WWII US Navy Hammock Clew Tutorial,” with great interest. I wanted to repair the rope suspension of an old WWII US Navy Hammock my parents purchased long, long ago, as surplus I’m sure.
I noted you were doing the clew on a heavy canvas sheet with hemmed edges and steel eyelets installed.
Can you please direct me to a dealer who can supply such a heavy canvas hammock with hemming and heavy steel islets installed, identical to the style and size of the original WWII US Navy hammocks? I could then do the clews on a canvas and end up with a NEW one instead of a dirty, mildly ragged old one?
I’m not sure if there is a company who offers that sort of service, but The Ship in a Bottle company does sell canvas hammocks.
Hi Derek, thanks for your useful information. We are Huilang Outdoor located in China. One of the main manufacturers making hammock-related products since 2015. Some of the brands from the US and Europe customize hammocks, tarps, suspension systems with us.
