Why buy a double hammock over a single hammock ?
A double hammock is one that is big enough for two adults to relax in comfort.
I would say the minimum width of fabric for a traditional hammock to be counted as a double hammock is 150cm. For a hammock with spreader bars that will hold the fabric open, I would say 130cm is wide enough to fit two adults.
For the traditional cotton hammock, 150cm+ allows two people to lay side by side.
You can also just about fit two adults in a single hammock, but in a double hammock you can even create your own area with a soft ridge in between. You can easily lay top and tail like this, almost like having two hammocks.
So, the first reason to buy a double hammock is that it is big enough for two people.
You don't have to always have two people in the hammock of course. We have 3 boys. My youngest is still a baby, but I can hang with my older two in the hammock. I guess that technically makes it a triple hammock, but there is plenty of room while my boys are still under 130cm tall. It's a fun place to relax and chat or read with our children.
A double hammock is also better than a single hammock if you intend to use it mainly for one person. More width and a bit more length, means you have more positions in which you can lay.
You can lay directly across the hammock if you have your legs bent. It makes a very comfortable half sitting position, from which you can see your surroundings.
If you prefer to lay as flat as possible, then laying diagonally in a 160cm wide cotton hammock will give you a flatter laying surface than you would get in a 120-140cm wide single hammock. It is just more comfortable.
If you have taken your hammock to a nice sunny area, then the extra fabric of a double hammock allows you to arrange it in such a way, that part of the hammock can shade your head. This is easy and comfortable.
It is easy to carry your hammock where you go because our Hamaca hammocks come complete with a nice matching shoulder bag, which is also big enough to fit a drink, a book, and some tree bands alongside your hammock. The bag is comfortable and the hammock is not heavy. Or should I say that the hammock is comfortable and the bag is not heavy?
The only downside is that you can't really claim there is no room for more people when you want it to yourself.
