Hobo Hammocks Gray and Blue Hammock – Find Your Zen!
Wanna get a hammock AND contribute to a great cause?! Look no further!
Finally the perfect hammock. Love how roomie the 2 man hammock is. My favorite part is that it comes WITH straps and is still cheaper than most hammocks similar to this one. But by the time you buy 30 dollar straps ( bc you will definitly want/need some for full enjoyment pf hammock) youve spent 100 bucks already. Not too mention its a company that gives back. Buying one puts a meal in a homeless persons belly. You did your good deed for the day.
Tailgating Challenge –
Being the founder of Tailgating Challenge I’ve had the chance to review 100’s of tailgating style products. I had to chance to review this Hobo hammock and came away impressed. Check out our full review here:
This is a sturdy two-man hammock. Of course I prefer using it with a person of the other gender, but it is definitely strong enough to hold two men, plus a kid or two, and a few cats and dogs. Also love, love, love the straps and carabiners that are INCLUDED. Straps are a must, and very gentle to the trees – in contrast to just using ropes – I really like that! No matter where you buy, please don’t just use ropes cuz they can do serious damage to the trees! Thanks. And guess what, they donated a meal to the homeless on my behalf when I bought the hammock, it’s included with the deal. I really love that! Thanks Hobo Hammock people.

My 10 yo slept in it all night, worked great!
Love my Hobo hammock! Great quality, great price, and a good cause, too!
I bought this for a Christmas gift, but gave it to my husband early. It is awesome!! Small and lightweight to carry, but strong and durable to sleep in. It has been on 5 camp outs since Sept. and another coming this weekend! Best camping item I have ever bought!
Been hammocking for a long time, and was looking for something light, and easy to use when 4 wheeling, hanging in the back yard, or at the park and decided to give the Hobo Hammock a try. I figured for the price, and donating a meal, if it wasn’t that great, no big loss…… Well, I was amazed!!! A double wide hammock, with quality stitching, quality material, with a great suspension included for the price they are being sold for = AWESOME! I have since purchased several more….. Two for the back yard, two that I leave in the trunk of our 4 wheelers, and one that I leave in my Jeep….. I LOVE MY HOBO HAMMOCKS!

Since I had only used hammocks with a spreader bar, generally with a hammock stand, this was a whole new experience for me. I thought if I shared a bit about what I learned, it might be helpful to others.
First of all, if you are new to hammocks, you really do need to practice a bit before you take this on the trail! Not only because you need to understand how to hang it and safely get in and out of it, but also because the knots need to tighten, and that only happens with use.
This has simple loop straps. You place them on the tree by wrapping the strap around the tree (or post) and sliding the end through the strap. The other end of the strap goes through the caribiner clip on the end of the hammock. About 15 feet apart is ideal for this hammock. It is ten feet long and has two ten foot straps. You need to allow for the circumference of the tree, and space to hang.
If your trees are closer together, you will need to fasten your straps higher so that you don’t end up on the ground. If your trees are much further apart, you will need to add rope, not a preferred method of hanging.
Once your hammock has been properly tested (it took about four trials to keep mine from stretching), your goal is to have the lowest spot about 18 inches from the ground when you are in it. This will allow you to easily get in and out.
To get in this type of hammock, begin by standing up with your hands across the back. Back up until the hammock is safely tight across your sitting area, then sit down and let it swing. Lay down into the hammock by putting you head down and lifting your feet up.
To get out easily, you again place your arms across the back and put your feet down until they touch. Then you walk backwards to stand up. The hammock helps.
Since this is a double, I found it harder because there was more “middle” to the hammock. In fact, once I got in, I was fully cocooned in it. Since the sun was out, it was kind of nice. I rolled the top over me and it was able to avoid the sun in my face.
Because I am short, once I got my straps set, I was hoping to leave them up. So I contacted the seller who sent me the hammock. He stated that the straps were included in the guarantee even if I left them outdoors, so to help me use this more often, I am leaving them.
The parachute fabric is very lightweight and breathable, and I felt comfortable lying in it. The bag is actually sewn onto the side of the hammock making it impossible to lose. Even better, it makes a great place to store my cell phone and glasses. By twisting the fabric, I was able to get the hammock back into the bag to store it.
While this is a double, and would hold two people, given the style, they would need to be able to work together. I made a decision NOT to invite my granddaughter to share it with me in my first trials, knowing one or the other of us would be injured.
Unfortunately, we only had a few days of decent weather to get used to this between storms, but I will be continuing to put it out any time we have decent weather to enjoy myself. I think that is what I like best about it, it is easy to store and very easy to hang.
