    We wanted to be let everyone know that Dutchware has purchased Clark Hammock Company. We have move the Clark Jungle Hammock forum into a sub forum under the Dutchware forums.

    Hammock Forums is a family friendly site. This means that our topics, language and treatment of each other are what you'd want your kids to see. We're not a bunch of prudes...we just think that the internet has enough places where that behavior is tolerated, and this particular site shouldn't be one of them. This is a great community where the norm is to support others in their ideas and projects, and not assume offense where none is intended...and therefore not to flame, call names, or create friction in our threads. Respectful disagreement is ok; disrespectful comments are not.

    Please participate in accordance with these guidelines, and PM the mods with any questions.

    Just a friendly reminder of HF's Terms of Service re: discussing religion and politics on this forum. It's not allowed.

    I thought a reminder would help us stay focused. Applying the TOS to the holidays, it's ok to wish folks Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Solstice, Kwanzaa or whatever...but discussions about the religious aspects of the holidays will be removed. We're here to discuss hammocks, so if you have strong feelings about religion and the holidays, please find another forum to discuss them.

    Hammock Forums has always had a strict rule against political and religious posts. This has normally applied to issues that most members can agree are contentious...gun rights and carry laws, differences in religion, political elections and candidates, etc. As we've said several times, this isn't about First Amendment rights but about keeping this particular site respectful and on-topic.

    Mod to reduce risk of bridge hammock damage to DCF tarps

    I tried this mod two years ago when I got my RR and boy did it backfire on me quickly. I climbed into my hammock and the head end pole shot out like

    It's a great area - for me, a short 20 minute drive from home. Here's some photos coming from the other end (route 55 trail head).

    Adding whoopies to HH in 2020

    Hey guys. Wondering who here has done this modification in recent times. There are a few videos detailing the process from long ago, when the end of the

    UQ Length & versitility

    You didn’t mention how tall you are. For some of us, a ¾ length UQ is nearly full length. And for some, a ¾ length might interfere less with

    Split ridgeline knots - do you trust a taut line hitch?

    I think a lot of these sliding hitches expect a steady pull to keep them cinched. That’s why it works so well on guy lines. My concern is storm-like conditions

    Wide hammocks aren't only for larger people; and a fabric question

    NW Boricua, I occasionally use a Hammeck Envy-S which is like a Trail Lair and that design is far more elegant that a bulky Winter sock. Not as warm,
