View Full Version : Newbie Question: How do these things work

06-15-2014, 17:27
I know it has to be on the site somewhere but I cannot find anything that makes any sense or a video of the whole hanging process. All i have used is a atlas system and looking for other ways to hang to see if it is any better for my wife's ENO

If you are confused by all of the options, there is absolutely no better place to start than Shug's videos series for hammocking noobs. Here is a link to the first one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7NZVqpBUV0&list=PLB8752777861C2AA8 I highly recommend watching all of them. Another good resource is Derek Hansen's book, the Ultimate Hang. Here is a link to his site. http://theultimatehang.com/

Shug's videos are great. Derek's book is an awesome resource, too.

But let's not forget GrizzlyAdams' video series on hammock suspension. There have been a few new advances in hammock suspensions with all of the new gadgets that have come out (dutchware, etc.), but these will give you a solid understanding of hammock suspensions. Part III deals with constrictor style suspensions (whoopie slings, UCRs).

Fantastic thanks so much for the help... we should somehow sticky these videos for other noobs like myself who get overwhelmed.

Nevermind... i don't know why but I could never find these on the suspension area until now thanks for being patient with me!

We have a link to both Shug's and Grizz's videos on our webpage as well. Great stuff!
