The Best Hammocks Come in Double
Bigger is often better, and two is usually better than one. The best hammocks are no different.
A large “double hammock” is better than its regular size cousin for several reasons. Here are four of them.
1. More Room to Move
Just as a King size bed is more comfortable than a twin, a large offers a more relaxing stay than a smaller one. With the extra space you can move around until you find the most comfortable position. While smalls force you to lie straight in a banana-like cocoon position, larger models let you lie sideways to achieve a flatter, more bed-like familiar feel. You can even stretch completely sideways, if there’s room, and playfully swing away.
2. Double Hammock = Twice the Friends
If you’re willing to share that extra space you can often fit two, or even 3 people into a large one. The key is to all lie, or sit, sideways. The most comfortables are woven hammocks from Mexico or Nicaragua, and the larger sizes can hold up to 800 lbs! So unless your friends are an NFL lineman and an adult gorilla, you should be safe.
3. Use it as a Bed
Because of the comfort factor, doubles work great as hammock beds. You can lie straight for short naps or to read a book; the straight position will cause your back to be supported in a reclined position and the sides of the hammock will form a cocoon that serves as an armrest for holding a book. When you’re ready to fall asleep you can stay as you are or move diagonally until you’re most comfortable. And there’s plenty of room for a pillow and blankets if you need.
Note: Some of the best hammocks include fringes on the sides which can work great as makeshift blankets on a cool night.
As long as you take good care of yours the extra strength provided by a bigger size will allow your hammock to last for years, or even decades. Just avoid sharp objects and don’t leave out in the sun and rain too often and it should last just short of a lifetime.
So there you have it: 4 good reasons why the best hammock is the biggest you can find. Unless you’re camping, traveling, or in 2nd grade there’s no reason to go small, and every reason to go big! Happy napping!
