When camping in decent weather where there are plenty of trees, a good hammock can solve all of your sleeping problems. In fact, some campers would rather sleep in a hammock—whether covered or not—than in a tent in a sleeping bag. The advantage to doing so is less equipment to carry on your back if you’re heading back into the boonies. When looking for a hammock, consider factors like length (it should be at least two feet longer than your height), single or double occupancy, and the accessories you’ll need to suspend it. Note that hammocks tend to be a bit cold during cooler weather, since cold air below can seep up through the material and chill you to the bone. Consequently, they’re most useful in more temperate weather.
