I’ve been spoiling Dad quite a lot lately. Father’s Day wasn’t a long time ago, and his birthday is coming soon. So in between the holidays (like Independence Day) I decided to go around and get him a mini present.
See, my dad is a hammock fanatic (as I call him). He’s spends quality time on his hammock, and when he’s not on it, he’s always shopping around for one to meet his needs.
His last purchase was a fishnet looking hammock, which was very uncomfortable as your body would “leak” in between the holes. Surprised that he didn’t bother replacing this horrendous hammock, I decided to get one for him myself.
My latest finding was Pacearth Double Camping Hammock, and I’m overall very happy with my finding.
The hammock measures 94.5 inches by 55 inches and it is made of nylon parachute fabric (before my purchase, this was one of the features that caught my attention).
This hammock is meant for heavy duty usage (ex. Camping); yet, it is very lightweight and very easy to install/hang. It brings all the tools necessary for a safe installation, including two galvanizing clamps and two nautical grade straps.
When I first gave this to my father, he was happy but not impressed (yes I caught up on that!) It wasn’t until he actually laid on the hammock that I saw true happiness on his face. When laying on it, his first comment was how comfortable it was! That was such a relief for me; this hammock is truly lightweight, so I was afraid that it wouldn’t work to my expectations. But it is so sturdy and so well made that you have nothing to worry about. My father is a little over 6ft tall and about 200 pounds, and he truly enjoys his time on it. I know this hammock is meant for camping or heavy duty activities, but due to its popularity at my home, I truly wanted to get something sturdy, and it has worked fantastically.
I like that its shape also allows for feasibility. For example, the hammock has a side pocket, which is used for storage when you’re not using it – this is very nice and neat. This same storage bag also works fantastically to put your drink (for example) as well as your other belongings.
I overall think this is a fantastic item. It is very light weight, easy to install, easy to store, very sturdy, and most importantly, it is super comfortable. And don’t forget the fact it is very visually appealing!
