The best two-person hammock not only needs to be wide, but also it should have a reasonable load capacity. We have hereby review some of the best on the market.
The best fun is had with company! Imagine how relaxing it would be to laze in the sun with a loved one or to cuddle in the evening in the same hammock as you look out for falling stars. Simple but precious moments like these will call for the best two-person hammock on the market.
What You Should Look Out For
You will be interested in the weight limit of the hammock, which will be informed by your weight and that of your partner. However, it is safe going with the most accommodative that you can get even if it is way above your combined weight.
Standard double hammocks have a 500lb carrying capacity, but there are a few that go over that. Naturally, they will be heavier by a few ounces when compared their single-person counterparts.
Spreader Bars or None?
Spreader-bar hammocks are best for lounging in the sun. They are not ideal for use as beds as they will most likely land you on the floor when you dose off. They are also a bit heavy given the bars, and you can only hand wash them seeing as you cannot get the entire thing into the washing machine. The main advantage is in their width, which could accommodate a family of three or four.
Fabric hammocks, on the other hand, are light and they make great bed substitutes. They are easy to maintain and wash, although the downside is that you could fee claustrophobic if you hang the hammock poorly.
Dimensions and Material
Although most hammocks are nylon made, you will find a few made of cotton. Both materials are durable, but cotton is a little warmer as compared to nylon. If you are looking at cooler destinations for your adventures, you may want to factor that in. Cotton, unfortunately, takes longer to dry when washed and that is where nylon shines.
Larger hammocks cost more than single profiles, and as for comfort, you can always improve that by adding a quilt to your bed.
