Two people seems questionable. 300 pound limit? How is that for two people?

The double hammock is nice, got one for my dad for Father's Day. You'll need some ropes or straps, and maybe some carabiners.

The one with the mosquito net, for that price, is definitely worth trying out. It's not the best in the world, but that is a crazy cheap price. I have a Warbonnet Blackbird that I -love- but for 30 bucks you can't go wrong. I'd jump on it!

Hammocks are the most comfortable way to sleep EVER.

My son had the same thoughts. Didn't quite add up to being too comfortable. He went with a single. Now I'm thinking of getting him the singe with mosquito netting. Too late though, he's out camping at a 4 day music fest in the forrest in Michigan. Hope he brought his bug spray!

This was posted in the December sale for the double hammock. I found it interesting.

MyPooka wrote:"Double hammocks" like this aren't generally meant to hold two people (though they probably could.) What they are meant for is allowing people to sleep in "flat" position (or even on their sides) without being bowed like a banana (which gets a terrible night's sleep and often a backache in the morning.)

With a double hammock you don't sleep "end to end" so much as you sleep "across" the hammock in sort of a diagonal. Sleeping "across" the hammock results in a relatively flat sleeping surface with good back support.

I Googled around to try and find a non-commercial site that illustrates what I'm talking about but good examples from non-commercial sites seem to be few and far between. This picture posted at Flickr comes as close as any to showing what I mean, though in this case the person is full across rather than on the diagonal: http://www.flickr.com/photos/38184466@N04/4078778112/

You could also just Google "how to sleep in a hammock" and turn up several references including some really good ones on other commercial sites that want to sell you their own hammock: https://www.google.com/search?q=how+to+sleep+in+a+hammock

Edited to add:

eHow has some basic instructions on sleeping diagonally or across a double hammock: http://www.ehow.com/how_4165_sleep-hammock.html

Hammocks are the best way to camp if the weather premits.

I will never willingly sleep in a Tent again.

"Diagonally", ~15 degrees off center, is the only proper way to lay in any hammock. I slept in an ENO Doublenest, which is very similar to the one on Woot today, for a year while living overseas and I can attest to the fact that they are extremely comfortable and offer great support. (For comparison, my other bed is a TempurPedic.) These traditional-style hammocks are also FAR superior to the spreader-bar type in every respect.

The prices on these are incredibly reasonable. I'd recommend buying one to pretty much anybody. I've been considering getting one with a mosquito net for camping for months... today is my lucky day. Thanks woot!

Rothbury, Michigan to be exact. But there are not to many people with just one in a hammock. Usually its 2, I've even seen 3. And there are basically no bugs.

Suitable for use in a dorm room??? Attached to what? Huge bike hanger screws screwed into a corner walls studs?? What school would allow that and why would it be needed anyway since you have beds anyways?

Camping trips with suitably proximate trees is another thing completely.

I am a bit confused on the wight limit on these. Every site I go to is saying the green one is 350lb but on the product page here on woot it's saying 275. Whats the deal?

Also does anybody know if you can remove the mosquito net or is it permanently on?

Sounds like it is, according to the description:
"The Yukon Outfitters Hammock’s integrated mosquito net will keep you comfortable in the great outdoors. If the coast is clear and you don’t need the mosquito netting, just flip the hammock over and use as a normal hammock."

With a tarp and some insulation you can hammock camp in any weather ;)

Cause it's fun, that's why! I actually did string a hammock in my dorm room at one point. I don't remember what I tied the ends to, but I made sure it was sturdy and anchored. My roommate and others on the floor kept streaming in to check out my abode. I didn't sleep overnight in it, but I did occasionally put it up for fun.

As to why? Cause you're in college and need to be entertained and entertaining. That's why!

That festival has an awesome lineup! Go ahead and get him the one with the netting though because festival season is far from being over I love hammocks. Best way to sleep ever.

Last year, there was a special Woot deal on the Trek Light hammocks, plus discounts on their accessories. I bought one and their "go anywhere" rope kit, and with shipping and tax, the whole thing came to about $68. I loved the hammock and used it a few times. However, I regretted the lack of netting and have been researching the cost of getting netting and a tarp for all-weather hammock camping.

Well, with this hammock being less than any decent bug net, I had to bite. Cash flow is extremely tight right now, but still... this is worth it (I hope!).

I agree. The two people would have be A&F models to keep under 300#

I keep a hammock in my emergency bag (along with an inexpensive sleeping pad, which you absolutely need if it gets really cold).

The pad and the hammock together may be the size of a cantaloupe. I've slept in it overnight many many times.

all I'll add is don't use 550 para-cord...tying knots weakens your rope or line by half. Sooner or later you will blow para and look funny doing it.

It takes more room, but the nylon straps are worth it. Just wrap them around the bag.

I got the double hammock and I don't care how it sleeps. The pool toys are taking over our shed. If I string the huge hammock under the deck it will hold a multitude of rafts, noodles, etc. and my husband have his shed back.

Why doesn't the large one also have netting available?
300 lbs isn't even close to what's needed.
2 people do more than just sleep.
Are there any better ones available for a good price?

Another Amazon link that shows the double hammock for sale and regularly priced at $50.64 ... half that price here, on Woot, TODAY ONLY!

I'm gonna pull the trigger on this one.

It's not for 2 people. It's double wide. Two person hammocks look like catamarans.

Net is permanently attached but you could flip the hammock over if you don't want it.

My ENO double hammock is rated to 400 lbs, and my wife and I (combined weight of 265lbs) have definitely done more than sleep in it. It looks so similar to the one on sale today, I would be shocked if they weren't both made in the same factory in wherever.

In short, you'll probably be fine. Just remember that your available... *cough cough* orientations will be somewhat limited.

Aaargh! I screwed up. I wanted the double hammock with the netting. I didn't realize that the hammock with the netting wasn't a double also. I ordered two hammocks with netting before I realized this. I have used hammocks for lounging around and camping a lot, so I know that the most comfortable sleeping position is diagonal on a double hammock. The single is shorter and at only 4'8" wide, I don't think that my 6'3" body is going to be able to get diagonal enough to get a comfortable good night's sleep.

Yay Michigan! Tick repellent would be good in the woods here too. Lyme disease ain't as glamorous as it sounds! ;o)
