    Greetings from Handy Hammock - the world's lightest hammock stand (54 ounces)

    Hi there,
    Just thought I'd say hi. Have noticed a few mentions of The Handy Hammock on the forum so I though I ought to join the forum so I can answer some questions on it from time to time.



    In a nutshell it is the lightest portable hammock stand (and hammock) ever. In imperial units its under 54 ounces (1.53 Kgs) including hammock, stand, pegs, bag and instructions. It packs down to a bag about the size of a shirt sleeve (30 inches by 4 inches). It can support hangers upto 275lbs (125 Kg).

    It is available through our website - www.handyhammock.co.uk.
    We don't ship to the US/Canada yet but we will soon, we have some paperwork to sort out first.

    Happy to answer any questions on the product. Hope to chat to some of you soon on the forum (I think I've already fielded 4-5 emails from forum members).

    Happy Hanging!

    I think I want one, maybe some one here in the USA can distribute them for you! Or whatever way to get around huge shipping $.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Cheers - welcome to HF
    Impressive design. There will probably many of us looking to purchase your product.

    I'd bet one of the questions you will be asked most is: "Can is support hammocks other than the one it comes with?"

    In other words, can I mount a Hennesy or ENO and it still work?

    I have one on its way and I intend to test several hammocks on the stand to see how it will work. My guess: yes, it will work. I may need to mod the suspension to work with how they have it configured, but I'm optimistic.

    We've actually not tested it with other hammocks, it was designed purely as a stand-alone system. Looking forward to Derek's review and for his opinion on using it with other hammocks.

    Thanks for all the welcome messages too.
