There’s no right or wrong way to camp — the old sleeping-bag-in-a-tent method is perhaps the most traditional, but there’s nothing wrong with bedding down directly on the ground, beneath the stars and next to a lowering fire, either. Somewhere between these two choices is hammock camping, and right now one of the best camping hammocks available, Kammok’s Roo Double, is on sale at Huckberry for 37 percent off, a savings of nearly $50.
The main benefit of hammock camping is that you save weight. Instead of sacrificing half of the space in your pack to a tent and hauling it miles up a trail, you can instead carry a bed the size of a grapefruit. The Roo Double weighs only 22 ounces but can hold up to 500 pounds with Kammok’s tree-friendly Python Straps, which usually are sold separately but included in this discounted bundle. Another possibly more significant argument for hammock camping is that it’s fun, particularly during the summer months when being rocked to sleep by a warm breeze is preferable to roasting in a tent.
