Hi! I am looking for ways to spend more time outdoors despite a back/hip problems and a chronic illness. Ideally, I would like a hammock with room for two, so my husband and I can enjoy a fire in the chiminea on the patio. My husband loves to kayak and we both love to camp, but my health has put a damper on all of that. Hopefully, we will eventually get back to those activities! During my hammock research, I discovered that this is THE place to be for help in choosing the perfect hammock for my situation!!!
It is important to me be able to lie on the diagonal and to be very comfortable. My hammock needs to accommodate at least 375 lbs if it is to work for my husband and me together. I would like a bug net and a tarp, but do not necessarily need a cover. The weight of the hammock is not very important, but ease of set-up is very important. I would like a breathable fabric that will not be sticky in hot weather, as well as plenty of ventilation. I am interested in a double layer for a pad.
Hammocks that appeal to me: WB Blackbird (foot box), DH Dangerbird (custom aspects), Kammok Roo (breathable fabric), and Exped Ergo (looks most comfortable for me and easy to hang... but fits only one).
Thank you for an awesome forum and for any suggestions you can offer!
