Sea to Summit's Ultralight Hammock Set is an incredibly lightweight hammock made from highly breathable fabric that wicks moisture away. The built in compression sack helps it pack down to a tiny size.
Sea to Summit says:
Sea to Summit Hammock Sets are technical, light and very compact. Delivered with everything required for a lazy afternoon hanging in the sun. Hammock Sets include suspension straps featuring a new 3-dimensional buckle assembly.
Quick and easy-to-use set-up and adjust, they are great for recreational day-trippers relaxing in the outdoors and gram-saving adventurers sleeping out overnight.
Our Ultralight Hammocks feature a custom made 20D Nylon monofilament fabric. Their whisperlight appearance is matched on the scales. Rated at 135kg the fabric is more than strong enough to take the load of a sleeping camper. Being a monofilament fabric, it is also highly compressible making for a miniscule packed size. The lightweight, high strength 6-series aluminium buckles are connected to the hammocks with 0.8mm Dyneema non-stretch polyester blend webbing which is bar tacked five times at each end for ultimate security.
* Remember, your hammock will hold 135Kg but will whatever you're attaching it to?
Sea to Summit's Ultralight Hammock Set is the lightest hammock in our range and that's great news for us ultralight hikers. But there is one important thing to remember - saving weight always comes at a price. As they're made from superlight nylon monofilament fabric, they wont be as durable as other heavier hammocks so you will have to be careful not to batter it around to much. they have also been rated to hold up to 300 lb/135 kg - again good but not as much as heavier hammocks.
Taking all that aside, they are incredibly lightweight hammocks with the single size weighing in at only 220g and packs down a little bigger than a can of coke. No other hammock does that! Includes compact Suspension Straps.
Please be aware that this hammock is on the small size so not ideal if you are tall.
