Camping Hammock - Pratical Advantages
Camping Hammocks can save a lot of time and hassle. Camping is great fun, but carrying and putting up a tent can be a real nuisance. If you arrive at your campsite in the dark, it can be ages before you're ready to settle into your sleeping bag. There are tent pegs to find, ground sheets to be laid, and even then you're not guaranteed a good night's sleep. No matter how hard you try to avoid the lumps and bumps, you always end up sleeping on a rock or two, and even if you avoid that, the floor can be hard and cold.
Sound familiar? Well, have you ever considered trying a camping hammock instead? A regular camping hammock weighs around two pounds, making it significantly smaller and lighter in weight than a tent, giving you more space in your backpack for other items that you might otherwise have been forced to leave behind.
Camping hammocks are usually made from tough, lightweight material like nylon, and are available with extras like internal pouches to store small items such as a torch or a book. They are very straightforward to put up, even in dark, windy conditions. And because you are sleeping above ground level, you are better protected from the cold and aren't going to have to sleep on twigs and stumps all night. Instead, the hammock will fit snugly to the contours of your body. You are better protected from bugs and other creatures too, because you are raised up from the floor. And during the summer months, you might want to consider investing in a mosquito net which can be attached to the hammock. This offers great protection against mosquitoes and other insects.
