If you know a thing or two about hanging around in hammocks you're going to appreciate this one. Absolutely nothing to do with a packet of fags these kingsize parachute silk hammocks are one of our favourite products on this website and is the one we are currently using for ourselves.
The same length as the other Ticket to the Moon hammocks (about 3m) it is so wide at 2.3m (nearly 8 feet) that no only can you pile the whole family in there you can use it like our Mexican friends use their hammocks and go against the grain, that is, lie across the hammock. It's brilliant and once you've tried it you won't want anything else.
This year sees one of the most innovative things to happen to hammocks in decades and best of all we're the first to get it. There's a lot of you out there who already own one of Ticket to the Moon's super hammocks. The new hammock is the same fabric, same size and has the same unique S hook hanging system as the original parachute silk hammock.
What has changed is the way to set it up and then, brilliantly, there's an integrated sleeve included with the hammock.
The hammock set up is quick and simple with the new Express bag and the sleeve is inspired as it protects the hammock when not in use by covering the hammock like a long snakeskin, preventing it from billowing in the wind, fading in the sun and it makes it a smaller target for birds. The best way to understand how it works is to watch the video below.
The fast drying synthetic parachute silk means that you won't find mould or mildew spots on these hammocks and you're less likely to be getting into a damp hammock.
Weighing only 700g means that these are super hammocks to take on holiday or just for a day out.
The rope fixing kit which makes hanging these hammocks so simple sells for €12.
