Can you believe 1 month of 2021 have already passed us by?!
We’re still in shock that another year has flown by and we’re welcoming another 12 months of opportunities to hammock anywhere and everywhere.
As far as we’re concerned, 2021 will be the year of ultimate hangs, so if you’ve been wanting to make more friends lately, may we suggest inviting them to a hammock sesh??
Hanging in your hammock is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, chill out, and experience a new point of view.
Hammocks allow you to get outside your comfort zone and make every outing into an adventure. And we think 2021 is the perfect year to get your adventure pants on and go hammocking every chance you get.
But, before you start packing up your backpack, there’s one thing you need to do.
You need to see which hammocks are the hottest this year! (No, not temperature hot.)
Whether you’re in the market for a new hammock to hang in—because everyone could use a new hammock—or you’re simply looking to gift one to a friend you’re trying to lure into the woods (in a non-murdery way, ya weirdo), there are plenty of awesome hammocks on the market for 2021. And we’re going to walk you through the best ones so you don’t have to stress too hard.
Your 2021 Hammock Buying Guide
We thought it would be best to break down the available hammocks based on how you’ll be using them. Because we care about you and stuff. Cool? Cool. OK, let’s do this.
If you’re ready to explore new mountains, hike unknown trails, and become one with nature this year, you’re going to need a sturdy and reliable camping hammock as your travel companion. When buying a hammock for camping, you’re going to need to check off a few criteria before you buy it. Here are some of the most important things to look for when shopping for a camping hammock…
- It’s a good sleeper hammock
- It’s lightweight
- It has a bug net (either included or attachable)
- Depending on the weather you plan on camping in, you may want to consider a tarp as well to protect you from extreme sun, rain, or snow.
So, with those things in mind, which camping hammocks should you buy in 2021?
Let’s look at some great options.
If you’ve got a camping companion, this Tentsile camping hammock is a fantastic choice. Ideal for two campers, the Connect Tree Tent is lightweight, suspended mid-air for smooth sleeping, and it comes equipped with a removable flysheet. It hits all the marks—just watch the setup video, and you’ll be good to go!
For just a bit more dough, you can invite another adventurous camper to your suspended tent. This model fits three people, comes with a removable flysheet, and it’s great if you want to build a literal Hammock Town. Simply get a few more friends, have them connect their standard hammocks to the three corner D-rings, and you’ve got friends hanging everywhere!
Just like the other Tentsile tent, though, it’s advised you watch the setup videos before trying to do it on your own—it’d be a shame to break your hammock tent before you ever get to use it.
This rugged and lightweight hammock is a total steal. Not only does it pass all our criteria for camping hammocks, but it’s also super unique. The Blue Ridge Camping Hammock was specifically designed for backpacking in rough terrain—whether you’re headed to the jungle, mountainside, or the edge of a riverbed, this 4.25-pound tent hammock will keep you comfortable with its included cloth bed, nylon rainfly, and no-see-um netting. Solo travelers should scoop this one up before it’s gone!
Another great solo camping hammock at a great price, the Moskito Kakoon tells you what it offers without you even having to ask. Snuggle up in this sturdy cocoon camping hammock, because the fine mesh netting will keep all the pests out of your face. This crazy-lightweight hammock weighs less than 1.5 pounds (22 ounces, to be exact), and it’s a great starter camping hammock if you’re not ready to splurge. Just read the reviews if you’re not yet convinced!
Chillers, home decor enthusiasts, and bohemian spirits: this hammock buying section is for you. You appreciate the value of an indoor hanging hammock, mostly because it’s beautiful, comfortable, and just really cool. Having a hammock in the home instantly gives you extra Cool Points, so let us help you find the perfect match for your abode.
First, you’ll want to decide where to put the hammock. The type of indoor hammock you choose will depend on where you plan on hanging it. Some people replace their beds with hammocks, while others put a hammock on the porch or patio for some pizazz. Consider the purpose for your hammock, then review these requirements that might help you make a placement decision:
- Your indoor hammock will need either a hammock stand, support beams, walls, or ceilings in order for setup.
- Hammock chairs attach to one point on the ceiling, so keep support beams in mind.
- If you don’t use a hammock stand, grab some hammock hanging hardware here
If you’re a color lover and appreciate artisanal beauty, we cannot recommend Mexican-made hammocks enough (we even wrote about the history of hammock-weaving in the region!). Not only is this hammock gorgeous and lively, but it’s also extremely comfortable. Hang this hot commodity on your patio, and just wait for your friends to gush. Trust us—it’s a hit.
Replace a sofa with this stunning hammock chair—it’s a stylish way to add some swing to your space. Modern and unique, the Globo Royal Hanging Chair is worth the price tag. It fits two adults and truly packs a punch to any area needing personality. If you don’t hang it from the ceiling, you’ll want to use the Globo Royal Hanging Chair Stand, which keeps the design in mind and adds even more style to the look.
So we thought you might be interested in a funkier hammock that both you and the kids will adore. Meet the Double Cocoon Hammock. It’s a fun, suspended pod that would make a sweet napping spot or reading nook. Whether you want to hang this bad boy in your man cave, bedroom, office, garden, or backyard playground, it will provide plenty of excitement and comfort.
