Ohuhu Nylon Hammock - Review

Up for review is the strong and inexpensive Ohuhu Nylon Hammock.

Colors: Blue and Orange


They offer hammock straps for $9.99


Crafted with 100% high strength breathable nylon fabric, which is light, quick drying, strong, mildew resistant, machine washable, and so silky soft and comfortable.

Large Size Fits For Most Situations - 115" Long x 55" Wide of unfold size is enough for most requirements.

Easy to pack and storage, it is easily folded and fits into an integrated pocket with 8.5" x 5" x 5" of folding size

Maximum support weight: 600lbs, which accommodates up to two adults.

The hammock is equipped with hook holder for easy & convenient use.

Material: Nylon

-Size: 115" x 55"

-Package demissions: 8.5" x 5" x 5”

Eagles Nest JungleNest. There is a noticeable quality difference, but the ENO is a $100 hammock. That this competes at all at a fifth of the price is remarkable. Overall, it seems just as functional, if not quite as nice. If you have doubts about hammocking or don't want to invest a lot of money, this is far from a bad option.

This is the perfect hammock to test the waters with.  Meaning if you are thinking of doing some hammock camping but you’re not sure if it’s really for you, this is a very good place to start.

Yukon Outfitters V1 Freedom Hammock

This is the Yukon Outfitters V1 Freedom Hammock.

Link :

Price: $54. on Amazon

$80 on the Yukon Web Site

Made in the USA

Colors: coyote black Drab

Dimensions: 119" L x 60" W

Weight: 10.4 oz.

Weight Capacity: 300 lbs.

Seamless single panel construction

Mil-Spec parachute nylon

Innovative heavy duty 1" nylon loops incorporate double box X stitching for clipping or attaching to tree straps, whoopie slings, or anchor points

Extremely lightweight

Reinforced ends and hems

Made in USA

No Seams

You will need a suspension system, this does not even come with carabiners.

Military grade parachute nylon

I like that it is a seamless design here, not that it matters too much, but if you can eliminate a seam, especially one on which you find yourself lying, it can't be a bad thing.

There is a Version 2 of this hammock called the V2 and it will support up to 500lbs

Cons : does not include the tree straps but at this price, no hammock does that I know of.

No straps.

No ropes and that is disappointing.

Eagles Nest Outfitters Slap Strap, Set of 2 is a good set of straps if you are interested
