I was looking at hammocks online today… seeing as it has been a regular topic during camping discussions.
Since our Brazilian Hammock disappeared during one of our many moves I figured I’d go see if I could find one online. hammocks.com page with Brazilian models. The one we had was a Large one with a fringe. No spreader bars, thanks! I prefer being able to hide out in the hammock. ” Made from 100% soft, stretchy cotton fabric, this traditional Brazilian hammock is cozy enough for one and spacious enough for the family.” Rated to 450 lbs as well.
Of course finding that just got me jonesing for a *real* hammock, something useable for camping. My friend Adam has a Hennessey Hammock and loves it, so I went there first. Huh. They have a new model, the Hennessey Supershelter. It’s a 4 season hammock system! Sold out and back ordered already.. and I haven’t even gotten past the intro.
For links to many hammocks and experiences with them head over to Sgt. Rock’s Hiking HQ.
I also like the IMPS-NETâ„¢ COMBAT & SURVIVAL NET. The Individual Multi-Purpose Net can be rigged up as a fishing net, personal camouflage, stretcher, storage bag and more… looks like a good addition to my pack, and for only $12.99 too! Needs a better acronym though, something with ‘nap’ in it..
