    Amok has the Segl XL, which is a typical gathered end hammock and a 90 degree hammock called Draumr. There is a larger version of the Draumr called Draumr XL.

    I have used both the Draumr and the Segl and they are both well made hammocks.

    There's few threads about the Draumr on other vendors and services forum.

    If you are below 185 cm I recommend getting the non-XL version of the Draumr. As with the XL you have to use Amoks own pad.

    Sleeping on it feels like what you could imagine it feels like. Like on a airmattress floating in air. So it's really comfy. If you prefer sleeping on a bed instead on a gathered end hammock then you are in for a treat.

    most of us that have them, love them

    the main reason (and I'm generalizing) that most that have a Draumr choose them for the ability to side or stomach sleep, or we have problems with shoulder squeeze in gathered ends


    also, Shug introduced us to them by making it look like a space ship, and who can resist that?

    I own one and I find it a comfortable sleep although I don't enjoy sitting in it so much. That is probably me though as even at home I lay sideways on the couch, I just prefer the sideways lay. As I am used to GE hammocks I find getting the set up just right a little tricky at times as if its not level you can feel the tilt as you sit in it. Two of my friends have tried it, one is six foot, 200lbs and he hated it, couldn't get comfortable and even span it and fell out the back. Up to that point that was the hammock he wanted instead he changed to a chameleon. My other mate is 6ft 2in and 300lbs, and although he thought it had potential it was too small for him but I think he would have really enjoyed the XL.
    It is really well made and still fairly lightweight and smallish. Would make a lovely seat at a picnic. I don't use mine that much to be honest but when I do use it I like it.
    My main gripe is the tarp. I don't own one of Amok's one and I find it can be quite hard to set up a tarp that is off your face and keeping you dry from all angles but again I don't use it enough otherwise i would have ironed out these personal issues.
    I would defo advise trying one before you buy if you can though cause they are quite different from other hammocks.
    A true optimist is someone that plants two acorns and buys a hammock.

    I got the regular version for my birthday last month. I usually read while I'm out and I'm a side sleeper so this hammock worked out perfect. Plus, it eliminated fidgeting with underquilts all night and I get more rest. I wanted a tarp with doors so don't own the amok tarp. Instead i opted for the warbonnet Mountainfly which has the same amount of coverage across the width as the Superfly, just the doors are shorter. Shug has a video with the XL and the Superfly together. Overall, I'm pretty happy with it. Until I get the hang of how I'm suppose setup my other hammocks and accessories, I still have something to fall back on and enjoy my time outdoors.
