Hammock essentials – an outdoor guide


There’s nothing like being one with nature, being outdoors camping and exploring what’s out there is what a lot of us live for. Going out and either spending a night or a whole day one thing is for sure, you’ll definitely need one thing: a hammock. What’s a better reward for yourself after a long day hiking then relaxing in your very own hammock? You owe it to yourself to have a relaxing time and therefore a hammock is the best option for this. There are some essentials that you would need though to elevate this experience to truly epic relaxation levels.

Of course you should already have your hammock with you, I suggest shell hammocks as these would give awesome comfort and it’s weight and stability is second to none. Next is a tarp. This is an excellent piece as this shields away the sun if it’s too hot giving you some needed shade for optimal relaxation or keeps the rain out if ever that event occurs. The tarp should be set up first before the hammock and make sure it is large enough to cover the entire hammock to avoid any inconvenient sun spots. Lastly is an underquilt, these are sleeping bags that fit underneath your hammock. Underquilts are perfect if you plan to spend a night camping as it keeps the wind from sucking the warmth from your body and down insulation traps and holds your heat all night long ensuring a good and cozy night’s rest.

Exploring the outdoors can sometimes be a challenging task as there a lot that could go wrong but instead of thinking about that, focus on the benefits which greatly out weigh the negatives. The sense of being out and free to do whatever you want away from all the negativity is truly a one of a kind experience. Armed with a hammock and our other essentials, is just the cherry on top of the sundae as rest and relaxation will definitely be achieved with the accompanying serenading sounds and feels of the outdoors.
