    Hello guys! Been using net hammocks made by my granny since I was small. Just recently purchased a hammock and tarp set made locally here.Interested in learning more on how you guys rig your hammocks and reducing the weight of my set up.

    Hi! I was in Manila for about six weeks in 1982 and wish I could have stayed longer. It is a beautiful country, you're lucky to be there.

    I was born in Venezuela, and hammocks are also part of the traditional culture. So glad that you could find a locally-made hammock. One of the first things you need to do is rig it with a more light-weight rope, since traditional hammocks usually use manila rope (any idea where the name comes from?). A lot of people use a combination of tree straps / whoopie slings / toggle, to achieve a simple, light-weight suspension. Lots of information about that in this forum. Enjoy your hammocking!

    What is your hammock and tarp like? I am planning on purchasing my hammock in the USA but maybe you can change my mind. Have you been able to use your hammock and tarp yet?
