During the warm summer months, we’re more than happy to trade out our tents to sleep in a hammock. But we also understand the misgivings held by hammock initiates — a primary one being that they leave you exposed to weather and insects. Our rebuttal: not all hammocks do; take Lawson Hammock’s Blue Ridge Camping Hammock, which is currently 20 percent off at Huckberry, as exemplar.
It’s best to understand the Blue Ridge as a hammock-tent hybrid. Using collapsible aluminum poles and a line that acts as a central beam, the Blue Ridge has an interior space that’s fully enclosed by mesh, and it comes with a rain fly for use in rough weather. Moreover, it uses spreader bars on both ends to create a flatter sleeping surface than other ultralight camping hammocks that envelope sleepers in a cocoon. (Pro tip: you can prevent your body from contorting into a banana shape by lying diagonally in a hammock.) When there are no trees in sight, you can also set up the Blue Ridge on the ground, just as you would a regular tent.
Additionally, Kammok’s Roo Double, a more classic style of camping hammock, is also 37 percent off at Huckberry too.
