How to Choose A Hammock in The Wild?

How do you pick the right style and surrounding equipment if you need to spend the night in a hammock? Hammocks and hanging ropes, warming equipment, and a canopy are the three types of equipment required for hammock camping. The following is the classification:

1. The body of the hammock

Taking a nap in a hammock is not the same as sleeping in one. Mosquito repellent, wind and rain safety, as well as low temperatures and warmth, must all be taken into account. This form of hammock requires a personal budget as well as the need for the hammock to be flexible. It also has much to do with the option of thermal equipment.

The body of a traditional gathered end hammock (gathered end hammock) is depicted in the diagram below. Sewing gauze, diaper hook points, pull points, fabric cutting, replaceable top cloth... and other practical designs have been applied to the basic structure of the gauze-free hammock by various brands.

To make connecting the suspension ropes easier, rope loops or tying ropes are used to close pipes at both ends of the head and tail of the bed. Via the tension of the ridgeline, the upper yellow ridgeline will not only correct the same curvature of each suspension, but also check if the tree distance is too far and the suspension height is too high or too low. It can also be used to connect storage bags, night lights, and keep the external gauze away from the face. The ridgeline is approximately 83 percent of the length of the hammock body, and it can be slightly modified to suit your preferences.
The hammock in the above photo, which does not have a gauze net, is ideal for napping during the day and can also be used as a bed or chair. If you plan to spend the night, it's best to use a gauze net to keep mosquitos at bay and stay warm, depending on the weather (temperature, wind and rain).
1. To prevent mosquito infestation, a netless hammock can be fitted with external gauze. The gauze can be divided into two categories:

a. Fronkey Trend Bugnet enters and exits from the bottom; it's a little tricky to set up, but it's simple to enter and exit.

b. Sock Design Bugnet sock gauze is easier to put up but more difficult to get in and out of (you need to push the gauze from one end to the other when you get in and out).
2. Gauze hammock built-in

a. A simple gauze hammock with built-in support:
Built-in gauze hammocks come in a variety of sizes. The gauze is stitched with the body on the other side of the basic models, which are often single-sided zippers for quick access. Despite the fact that the gauze is not reversible and cannot be replaced with a winter full-cover top fabric, this type of hammock is inexpensive and adequate for most weather conditions.

b. A multipurpose gauze hammock

Both sides have zippers for quick entry and exit, the gauze can be removed entirely, and a winter top cloth can be added to provide additional wind and cold cover. Since this type of top gauge hammock needs more complex work and has a wider variety of buying choices, it costs more than others.
