    1. A Wise Owl Outfitters single or double hammock touting 2,000+ 5-star ratings on Amazon with reviewers raving about its super-strong fabric, stitching, and ropes.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    You'll get two nine-foot talon straps, a storage bag, and two carabiners. Oh, and it only weighs 24-ounces and folds up to be the size of an eggplant!

    Promising review: "I've never liked sleeping in a tent. I'm always too hot and it's stuffy in there, and all the nylon, plus the weight and the setup...no thanks. So, for a recent two-night hike, I thought I'd try a hammock. After doing some research, I settled on the Wise Owl Outfitters Single Hammock. I'm a convert for life! It's lightweight, easy to set up, sturdy, and comfortable. I'm a big guy (6' 4", 250 pounds) so I was a little concerned with how well it would hold up. I was also a little afraid of whether I'd find myself dragging the ground because the straps had stretched out overnight. My fears were completely unfounded, however. There was absolutely no stretching, and it held me up just great over two nights. The straps are a fabulous idea. I'd never used them before, but they were great. They make it very easy to fine-tune the tension and length of the hammock set up." —technopetic

    Get it from Amazon for $29.95+ (available in two sizes and 15 colors).

    2. A single or double Sunyear camping hammock with a net to keep mosquitoes out so you can sleep outdoors without being eaten alive.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It comes with all the installation tools you'll need, including two elastic ropes, two hammock straps, and two carabiners. Plus, when you're not using the net, you can flip the hammock over and lay on it like a regular tree hammock.

    Promising review: "This hammock was awesome to use camping in the Adirondacks in July! The bug net didn’t have any holes and kept the bugs away while I slept, but it was thin enough that I could still see everything around me. It was very easy to set up, came with everything I needed to assemble it. I slept with a small mattress pad, sleeping bag, and small pillow in the hammock and had plenty of room. I liked that it had a pouch on the inside of the hammock for my phone and flashlight and the main bag is attached to the hammock so I won’t lose it." —Rene

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in two sizes and nine colors).

    3. An all-in-one Kammok tent hammock with an insect net, rainfly, and a panel to roll back when you want to fall asleep ~gazing at the stars~. No knots or tent poles required!

    Kammok

    The tent hammock is treated with a durable water-repellent finish, too.

    Promising review: "I was looking to cut down on weight – this whole setup is three pounds lighter than my older tent. This thing is amazing. Really easy setup – I'm an absolute newb when it comes to hammocking. I was able to actually sleep on my back, too. I was absolutely shocked and blown away at how comfortable and warm I was when I woke the next day – and even better – without any of the back pain I usually suffer from when I sleep in a tent!" —Franceschella

    Get it from Kammok for $239 (available in four colors).

    4. A camping hammock with a stand, so you can skip the entire process of trying to attach it to two trees and get right to napping.

    Wayfair

    Promising review: "BEST PURCHASE EVER!!! I bought this to take to travel soccer tournaments and it was been such a blessing. In between games my child could rest, relax, and even nap. It's super easy to pop up and down and carry using the handles. It's a little heavier than I prefer to carry so I tote it in a wagon with our chairs. All of the children on the team use it and rave about it." —Christina

    Get it from Wayfair for $99.99 (available in two colors).

    5. A water-resistant and tear-proof double Kammok hammock leaving some reviewers ditching their regular beds altogether.

    Kammok

    Note: You'll get two Kanga Claw carabiners, but straps are *not* included, so don't forget to order some!

    Promising review: "Both the single and double are exceptionally light and durable. The straps and carabiners make it super easy to hang and adjust – especially when using the Python straps. Both feel very secure, despite being well over 200 pounds. The double has the added bonus of being much easier to use with a blanket and pillow. Although I have used a blanket in cold weather with the single, the double provides an extra 'margin of error' for getting set up, getting in and settled, and not having things fall out in the night. Since getting used to sleeping in my hammocks, I have found it difficult to return to sleeping in a bed. On the rare occasion when I sleep in a bed, I find myself waking up much more stiff and sore compared to sleeping in my hammocks. The difference was so noticeable that I replaced my bed with the Swiftlet hammock stand and my Roo Double permanently!" —Yakker2009

    Get it from Kammok for $79 (available in 12 colors).

    6. A Kootek single or double hammock available in 30 colors so you can *perfectly* match the rest of your camping gear.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It has a built-in storage bag and comes with two tree straps and carabiners.

    Promising review: "This hammock is AWESOME. I hung it on my balcony and it's very big for a 5'2" 112-pound person. I could wrap the sides around me like a blanket which makes it very comfy. The material is very thin and breathable, much thinner than I expected, but very durable. The straps are also durable and of high quality. Set up is super easy, you just wrap the straps around and clip it to the hammock. The bunched-up ends can be untied if you want to use this as a large square of fabric, and the carrying case is sewn to the side to double as a pocket when it is hanging. UPDATE: Two years later and this thing has been hanging on my balcony in the Texas weather ever since. I've washed it a few times, and it also feels softer now that it's worked in. All of the stitches are good and the straps are just as sturdy as day one. I'm so impressed at how far my $20 went!" —Naeco

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in two sizes).

    7. A lightweight ENO double hammock from REI that people are choosing to sleep in instead of their tents because it's *that* comfortable.

    REI

    Promising review: "I have used the DoubleNest hammock on countless camping trips where I'd rather sleep in my hammock than the tent. It is super comfortable, sturdy, and easy to set up. My buddies all converted to hammock camping when they saw and experienced it for themselves. Don't be like me and wait years to find out what hammock camping is like, you'll never look back at your tent!" —Andy

    Get it from REI for $69.95 (available in 14 colors).

    8. A ~chic~ double camping hammock made of woven/macramé fabric that comes with a neck pillow for you to lay back on while taking a break al fresco.

    Wayfair

    Promising review: "We love to camp and have always liked a hammock. This has nice padding inside and it's so comfy. The fabric is nicer than I thought it would be, so that was a pleasant surprise. It appears to be well-made and we like the chains on the ends." —Patti

    Get it from Wayfair for $83.99+ (available in three colors).

    9. A Legit Camping Hammock that lives up to its name while still being lightweight, compact, easy to assemble (even for beginners), *and* affordable.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Setting up this hammock was extremely easy, even for novices like us. You can set the hammock up in one to two minutes. The included straps are easy to understand and extremely quick to set up. As for the hammock itself, it is extremely comfortable. The stitching is well done, and I have not felt compromised by the quality or make of the hammock at all. I am a pretty big guy and I've never felt as if the hammock was going to give way under me. The material is comfortable, and it is also breathable. I have used it on several 90 degree plus days, and while I was worried I might overheat in the hammock, the breathable nature of the hammock made it so I could feel the breeze through it." —AHermophany

    Get it from Amazon for $29.97 (available in 15 colors).

    10. A waterproof Blue Ridge Camping Hammock with a mosquito net and a tendency to sell out fast because it's *that* awesome.

    Lawson Hammock

    Note: Some reviewers say this hammock is pretty heavy to carry around.

    It's available with or without the suspension system, so if you want to hang it between a couple of trees, you can totally do that. Or if you'd prefer grounded camping, that's cool, too.

    Promising review: "The Lawson Blue Ridge Camping Hammock was the best camping experience I've had in a tent. Not only is it a great hammock, but it rocks as a tent! Very comfortable, easy to set up, and easy to disassemble. I was a little unsure of spending that kind of money on a one-person tent, but it's the best money I've ever spent! Slept in it for five nights in a row, and it was great! Don't be afraid to pull the trigger, it's worth it." —Daniel J.

    Get it from Lawson Hammock for $199+.

    11. An extra-large Gold Armour camping hammock capable of holding up to 500 pounds thanks to its super-strong triple-stitching and nylon fabric.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It comes with everyone you'll need: straps, carabiners, and a storage bag!

    Promising review: "I'm IN LOVE with this hammock!!! Even my friends, they all have their own hammocks, but they loooove mine so much!! It fits two perfectly and very comfortably, it even fits three and we even tried to fit four and it did and didn't rip at all!! It's very durable and very well-made. And it has very long ropes which is very important. The quality is also very good. It's been with me for three months now and I don't have any bad comments about it. This hammock is my favorite ever!! I would recommend 100% to buy!!" —Arina

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in 28 colors).

    On that note...if you need something from me while I'm in my hammock, no you don't.
