    Looking for recommendation for a hammock chair

    Needs to be light and include suspension. I see Sheltwee has one with cinch buckles but no weight listed. This will be used for day hike and bike hikes. Thanks all!

    We also have the original hammock chair, The Bushman.... https://www.arrowhead-equipment.com/...ock_Chair.html which in the 1.1 fabric will be a little lighter weight than the Kickback as it's single layer fabric rather than double layer and a bit smaller size. Those weigh in at about 9-10 ounces with the cinch buckle suspension or 5-6 opting for whoopies instead.

    I have Bothe versions of arrowhead's hammock chair. I like the kickback better it comes with whoopee slings like alt.thomas said. the bushman comes with straps and cinch buckles and I like the buckles better so I swapped the suspension

    if you know where to look for it.

    Depending on your weight, Iíve successfully used a Simply Light Design Gear Hammock as a hammock chair. Iíll typically just use my standard hammock straps and whoopies for a suspension.
