    Indoor Hammock Suggestion

    So I turned my 14 year old son into a hanger, and he convinced Momma to let me hang his ENO in his room!
    He hasn't been in a bed since, but Momma would rather the camping hammock be stored with the camping gear, and have a more suitable (read nicer looking, colorful) hammock in his room.
    What do you all suggest for an indoor hang?
    Do the cotton Brazilian types hold up like the ENO or warbonnet?
    Thanks!

    Fuzzie, DIYer here so don't know much about the bought hammocks but being inside allows you more leeway with fabrics. Look forward to hanging more hammocks inside, I'm on my way to HD now for a new indoor stand, my wife wants mine and I need a turtlelady portable for traveling. If you would add the tag ' home' when you get a chance, thanks.

    Thanks...where do I add the tag? I don't see any such option.

    Turtle stand? I'll have to google that. Hope HD is still open!

    Found it!

    I did it. Wasnt sure if I could since I wasn't the OP. It's the second panel below the last post.

    Love my Brazilian. A few others here use them as well. The cotton material is thick and strong. More info: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...08&postcount=3

    The hammock I sleep in nightly was bought sometime around September/October of 2008. I have several, but the one I'm talking about probably has around 600 nights on it. It could use a washing right now, but otherwise it is in great shape. I just did a visual inspection on it about a month back and was very happy to not find anything of consequence. It has survived 2 cats and a bulldog. So yeah, they are at least as durable as the camping rigs.

    My preference is pretty solidly in the Brazilian models. If I were rich, I might just opt for some of the high-end Nicaraguans, but IMO you get more bang for your buck with the mid-range Brazilians.
    Trust nobody!

    +1 on the Brazilian cotton hammock. Strong, warmer, colorful.
