One hammock is never enough . Especially Travel Hammocks

There are currently five primary hammock designs which you can find right now. Each offers specific advantages which are worth considering. So here are the best types of hammocks to try!

Most people buy a hammock, then realise they need a travel hammock, then realise they need a hanging chair. Then realise they need a second hammock and a spare travel hammock. So most people end up with 5.

#1. Colombian Hammocks

This option is perfect if you live in a colder climate. It features a thick weave that blocks the air, ensuring you can stay warm. They’re available in bright colours, often made from 100% cotton, and don’t usually have spreader bars incorporated into the design.

#2. Rope Hammocks

You’ll find this hammock at the beach or a tropical location for one specific reason: it keeps you fresh. It offers plenty of support with a design that stays open for getting in or out quickly. Look for an option that doesn’t dig into your skin to maximise your comfort.

#3. Travel Hammocks

These lightweight hammocks can go anywhere to give you the perfect night of rest. They’re usually constructed from the same materials as parachutes to provide you with the toughness that is needed. Bring a mosquito net along to protect yourself in the backcountry.

#4. Woven Hammocks

These portable hammocks usually come with a frame, which means you can take advantage of the benefits of sleeping in one even if you don’t have any trees nearby. They work well for pools, porches, and decks to help you spend some extra time outside.

#5. Hanging Chairs

If you don’t have enough space for the other hammocks on this list, then give this option a try. They work from a fixed point or use a free-standing frame to ensure there is a comfortable way to enjoy the outdoors.

Choose the best type of hammock that meets your current needs, and you’ll be able to find the peace and rest you crave.

4 Festival Essentials for 2020

One of the many things the UK, Sweden, Czechia, Germany and many other places do well is putting on a great festival.

Each summer swarms of revellers head towards a festival or multiple in aid of an escape from reality and a chance to enjoy fantastic music, time with friends and the ultimate down time.

Whether you’re visiting a huge festival such a Leeds, Glastonbury or Download or a smaller one the they all have something in common and that’s the camping. With it being a festival, first things we’d recommend not taking anything valuable as it may get lost or stolen. Bring back the Nokia brick and grab your wellies as here are our top 4 must haves for any festival.

Hammocks

Your own food:

We would advise to take a lot of tinned food like beans and maybe a pot noodle or two, as the food can be expensive. We’d advise taking as much low weight food as possible as it can get heavy. Snacks such as crisps, cereal bars and fruit are ideal.

Your own hammock:

Not all hammocks need to be hung up, we have a great range of hammocks which are ideal for festivals as you can pitch them up wherever you go, not only does it save you sleeping on the hard ground it can help with things such as not getting cold and should give you a decent night’s sleep (read more here). There is not much worse than trying to enjoy yourself when you’re tired.

Sun cream:  

Although it may not seem important within the list of essentials such as food and clothes, sun cream is super important at festivals. Whether it’s hot or not, spending hours in the sun can be damaging for your skin and can give you bad sunburn. Carry it around in an easy to apply travel size bottle and fill it up each day before you head out and it saves you from needing to carry around a full bottle of sun cream.

A first aid kit: 

Is it really a festival if someone doesn’t injure themselves in some way or another? From cuts and blisters to bites. Buying or putting together a small first aid kit can be crucial in your time of need. Plus, your friends will probably thank you for it later when they need something from it. You can buy one of these online or pretty much every shop on the High Street. 

We hope you’ve found our tips of what to take to a festival helpful and if you’re going to a festival this year we hope you have a great time.

Bitcoin

Well, how are you going to pay for stuff, if all that fiat currency in the bank has been inflated away to zero. Bitcoin never gets inflated away.
