Darien UL Hammock
Dream Hammock is proud to introduce the Darien UL Hammock.
What is a Darien Hammock?
Dream Hammock and Jungle Treks together designed and built the original Darien Hammock. Jungle Treks tested and continues to use the Darien Hammock in one of the wildest, most dangerous and most beautiful places left on our planet. The Darien Gap is over 10,000 acres of dense jungles, tortuous rivers, rugged mountains, and a vast marshy swamp that separates Panama from South America.
What is the Darien UL?
The Darien UL is currently the lightest integrated net hammock available anywhere and is a lighter weight model based on the Darien Tropical Hammock.

What is the weight limit?
Although the fabric and suspension should be capable of handling 220-225 lbs, our recommended weight range is 200 lbs or under.
Will my hammock weigh 12.85oz?
The 12.85oz weight is before the change to whoopie hook suspension. Adding the whoopie hooks may bump it up slightly. The final weight may change slightly as the design develops. Also, since these hammocks are built one at a time, sometimes slight variations will determine the exact final weight. I will update the weights as soon as I can after finish a few.
Can I customize the Darien UL?
Sorry. No customization is available on this hammock.
When will the Darien UL be available?
You can place your order now.
What are the final specs of the Darien UL?
It's kinda up to you. I plan to make several Darien UL hammocks using the above specs. After these initial hammocks are complete, your feedback will be gathered and based on your suggestions, we will adjust final specs according to the feedback received. Please be aware that the specs may change from time to time as we continue to tweak this hammock based on your experiences out on the trail. If this is something you just can't live with, it might be better for you to wait until a future final version is released.
Wish it would support more weight, but that's the price one pays for UL gear.
Nice hammock Papa Smurf!!
Wow! That weight is really impressive - and a great story behind it to boot! Some photos of the hammock in the Darien Gap would be awesome to see.
I'm not big on camo, but I'd love to see one made with a Momentum90 body!
Now you seem to really be on to something there PapaSmurf! Talk about pushing it!
Just ordered mine! Woo hoo! I love that it comes with all the Dutchware, especially the quilt hooks. Nice touch Papa Smurf. Can't wait to get that thing in the trees!
That's awesome sir smurf. When you come out with a ul for the heavyweights be sure to announce it loud n clear :)
PapaSmurf, That sure is a sweet hammock. :thumbup:
A really nice looking hammock. One heck of a good encouragement to make it to a group hang and see the new stuff. Wish I could have made MAHHA to see it in person.
