Relaxing in a hammock is the perfect way unwind after a long day hiking in the backcountry, and while there are few options to choose from in the world of portable hammocks, Hummingbird Hammocks is looking to take the top spot.
They’ve taken an already popular concept, and significantly improved upon it. When it comes to hiking gear, there’s two things that are important to us; storage space and weight. Hummingbird has created a hammock that is a fraction of the size when compared to competitors and weighs in at a measly 5 ounces. You literally won’t even notice this thing in your backpack when you hit the trails. Each one is constructed from a ripstop nylon parachute material designed to hold up 300 pounds, and was made right here in the USA. There are several different color options to choose from, and you can also select either one-person, two-person, or the multi-person Mega Hammock from the brand’s online store. [Purchase]
