Best Hammocks: Kammok Roo

On a humid night in July, I slept in friend’s hammock on the trail. The cool breezes were great, but I wondered about weight. How do they compare with other shelters?

A:

What began as a Kickstarter project a couple years ago is now a full-blown company with one of the roomiest hiking hammocks on the market. We like the Kammok Roo’s smooth diamond ripstop material (known as LunarWave), its four bold colors, and the easy setup. There is a 10.5-ounce insect net available for an extra $75, but to get a rain tarp, you’ll have to wait until fall when the company’s latest Kickstarter project produces one.

Weight of total package: 46.5 (including 24-ounce hammock, 12-ounce straps, 10.5-ounce insect net.)

Packability: 6 x 6 x 6 inches. (Insect net is an additional 4 x 4 x 3 inches.)

Price: $99 (straps cost $29 extra)
