2010 DD Travel Hammock Review - DD Hammocks

E-mail Print PDF
Hammock provided by http://www.ddhammocks.com/
Ashley reviews the new 2010 DD Travel Hammock.It Now comes with 2 zips (one either side of mosquito net) allowing quick entry / exit either side of the hammock and also allows you to tie the mosquito net up above you, out of the way, when not needed.

As before, this hammock has fine mosquito netting which keeps out all insects (including the dreaded British midge). Entry is via one of two side zips each with two double-sided zippers.

Features include two waterproof base layers so if needed (no trees) it can be set up on the ground as a basic bivi/tent, see pictures. The hammock also features two small internal pockets which are great for storing a torch, phone etc as well as three velcro patches between the two layers to help keep a thermarest/pad in place if cold weather camping. Now comes with an extra 2m elastic cord to create a ridge line inside the hammock to hold lightweight gear such as glasses etc.

You also have the option to lie out in the open (without mosi net) - simply tie the hammock up with the mosi net underneath the hammock.

With the waterproof floor this hammock can be used anywhere and along with our Tarp is the ultimate lightweight camping system!

It's nice to see there are so many options for hammocks out there. I use a hammock called a Hennessy Hammock.

I have been using it for years. I'm not sure if it is popular in Europe. I have tried tents and bivies but never sleep as well as in the hammock. Here is the website:

Thanks for sharing! What an awesome website!
