Unique Camping Uses for your Hummingbird Hammock

Unique Camping Uses for your Hummingbird Hammock

Hummingbird Hammocks provide some of the most convenient, easy-to-use hammocks on the market. They were designed by an FAA Certified Parachute Rigger to be the most portable, functional hammock you can use. Hummingbird's durable, lightweight material makes it more than just a hammock - it can be used for whatever your imagination can come up with. Here are a few ideas:


Need shelter from the rain, or shade from the harsh sun? Hummingbird has you covered...literally. Hang your hammock between two sturdy trees with one end high and one end low. Now you have a quick canopy to shade you, and rain will slide down away from you.

Food Storage

When you're camping out in the wilderness, you need a place to store your food and drinks from the forest floor. A hammock is easy to wrap up and hang high so small creatures won't get into your snacks. If you've got ice on hand, you can even use your hammock as a makeshift cooler to keep your beverages cold.

Kayak Sail

Give your paddle a rest - you can take out your Hummingbird Hammock and use it as a sail. On a windy day, tie one end of your hammock to your kayak, and hold on to the other end to catch the wind. You'll be able to maneuver your sail and give paddling a rest!

Swinging Chair

If you have kids that like to hike, they'll love using this makeshift swing. Tie both ends of your hammock high up between two trees, leaving the rope slack enough so the seat of your hammock is closer to the ground. You'll want to make sure the rope is tied securely, and the trees are strong so you don't slip.

Hummingbird Hammocks produces the lightest weight hammock on the market, giving campers and backpackers a quick way to relax without weighing you down. Replace your bulky hammock today!
