Is there anything better than laying out in the fresh air, up off the ground, nestled between a couple of trees and staring up at the sky? I can’t think of anything. That’s why I decided to buy the Double Hammock by Hammock Bliss from backcountry.com. It’s the ultimate must have item for anyone that likes to relax and enjoy the outdoors.
Living in Florida gives me the added benefit of “hanging out” on the beach
The double hammock is made of high-strength nylon parachute material, which is soft and breathable, and is 25″ wider than the single hammock. It’s larger size is intended to accommodate couples who like to get cozy together. The weight limit comes in at 350 lbs. Of course, if you want to enjoy it all by yourself it just provides extra space to spread out. You can even pull the excess fabric together over you for some added privacy, or weather/ bug protection. I just like to clip the ends together with a hair clip or chip clip.

It comes with super strong nylon climbing rope with 100 in. at each end to get around your two favorite trees. You can also purchase additional tree straps if you need some more length but so far I’ve found that the rope is usually sufficient. All you have to do is tie a few knots on each end and you’re ready to chill.
This hammock is just plain awesome and is the perfect way to relax after a tiresome day of hiking or just a long day at work. I’ve even heard of people sleeping in it overnight while camping. I haven’t tried this yet, but it’s definitely a possibility for my next camping adventure. Taking it with you super easy, too. It’s lightweight and fits into a compact travel pouch which is permanently attached to the hammock itself. Then when it gets dirty you can just throw it in the washing machine.

It was a splurge for me at $65 but I’m so happy I bought it anyway. I think it would be an excellent gift for the holiday season. Just be warned: This product may cause people to spend more time outdoors. What a great last-minute gift idea for the outdoor-lover in your life!
