Camping Hammocks: how to use hammocks for camping
Backpackers and campers are always looking for ways to reduce weight. One of the easiest ways to do this is to replace your tent and thermarest with a lightweight camping hammock. A typical, single size camping hammock weighs between one and three pounds - three to five pounds less than the average tent! Not to mention that hammocks are easier to set up than tents in windy conditions or after a long day on the trail.

The best camping hammocks are durable, lightweight and provide mosquito netting that will keep you as protected as any tent. They're also comfortable! These hammocks can be strung several feet off of the ground, protecting you from the cold, lumpy forest floor and any critters that happen by during the night. Clearly this affords significant benefits for campers, hikers, and backpackers.

Modern backpacking hammocks are designed to be durable and lightweight, so they're made from a tough, nylon pack cloth and come with mosquito netting. You may, however, be able to get by with a parachute hammock. These spacious hammocks are made from authentic, U.S. Army parachute cloth and frequently have built in pouches to stow you glasses, flashlight or a book.

A special warning, however: once you camp with a hammock, you'll never want to go back to the heavy, stuffy sleeping bag-tent combo again!
