    Bump.
    No comment needed, just pick one of the four answers that best fits your habit and feelings about cigarette-smoked-in hammocks.

    It's anonymous, too.

    I used to smoke, long before I discovered hammocking, and while I don't mind people smoking around me, I wouldn't want a hammock that smelled of cigarettes (too many memories). Having my gear smell of campfire smoke is different, I LIKE those memories!

    Diy my hammocks so will focus my comments on smoking in my hammock. Gave up cigarettes quite a few years back but still enjoy a pipe. But smoke in the hammock, never, a lot of my shirts have burns in them from rampant ashes. Would never subject my hammock to that hazard.

    1000 views, 100 preferences;& structural ridgeline

    The first two are approximate
    And the "structural ridgeline" (SRL) refers to the purely coincident fact that from the outset a steady 83-85% --SRL percentage -- of those polled don't want cigarettes or cigarette smoke residues or smells in their hammock or a previously owned one offered for sale..

    If the survey didn't selectively scare some folks away, it looks like about 15% of HF members might be smokers.

    The survey closes in a few days.

    I personally don't smoke tobacco cigarettes in the hammock. But, as you all know sometimes camping and hammocking can impart smoky odours with varying degrees of persistence depending on outdoor activities. I would not, however, sell a smelly 2nd hand item to a paying customer unless implicitly stated it has smoke stink. Of some sort...

    I never could stand the smell of cigarette smoke. Both of me parents were smokers.

    Most of the pipe smoking I do these days is from the hammock but I also detest the smell of cigarette smoke. But if it was a great deal I would just wash it till it smelled perty again.

    FYI: A small amount of amonia in the wash will remove smoke orders. I've been doing it to my clothes for years. I've found it works better than the name brand oder removers. YMMV
