The Hummingbird Hammocks Ultralight Single Hammock is the lightest weight, smallest packing hammock on the market. It weighs less than a lemon and packs smaller than a coffee cup, holds up to 300 pounds, and is designed by an FAA Certified Parachute Rigger.  It brings parachute technology to the hammock industry for the first time. The Button Link attachment system contains no bulky or heavy metal parts, can be compressed into a small pack, and are as easy to assemble as buttoning your pants.

This hammock is so light and tiny when packed, you’ll feel weird not bringing one everywhere you go.

PIA-C-44378 T4 Certified Fabric

This fabric is the real deal. Actual FAA certified reserve parachute material, uncoated 1.1 oz calendared ripstop nylon PIA-C-44378 T4 only made in the United States of America. The very same fabric that is packed into the reserve container of every single skydiving and BASE jumping parachute system.

It may be thin, but with a minimum tensile strength of 50 lbs per square inch, you can rest comfortably knowing these hammocks have you held safe and sound. The uncoated nature of the fabric keeps the hammock from feeling clammy against your skin, and the windproof requirement of true parachute fabric keeps the cold wind at bay.

Button Links

As easy as buttoning your pants, our Button Link system provides a lighter weight and much smaller packing alternative to a traditional metal carabiner.

The Button Links feature 1500 lb Spectra cord, a custom-designed button, and extremely simple assembly. The result is a hammock that has no bulky, heavy metal parts. Button Links can be compressed and packed small into the hammock, allowing us to have a hammock that is lighter and more compact than anything else available on the market.

Spectra Cord

Stronger than steel and far lighter, Spectra is the ideal cordage for our Tree Straps and Button Links. This amazing material is one of the many things that allow us to have extremely lightweight products as well as maintain a very small pack size.

Additionally, we attach our end loops to the gathered end of the hammock using a larks head knot. This knot transfers the stress of hanging to the fabric rather than the stitching on the end of the hammock, resulting in a more reliable, longer-lasting hammock system.

Lock Stitching

All of our products are lock-stitched (stitch type 301) using mil-spec bonded nylon thread. We double stitch our seams at 7-11 stitches per inch following FAA parachute rigging standards. Any more than that (or an additional line of stitching) risks perforation of the fabric which may result in fabric failure.

Lock stitching, as opposed to chain stitching seen on many other hammocks, produces a stronger stitch that is much less likely to unravel and can continue to perform well even if part of the seam has been compromised.

Dye Sublimation

Silk screening, sewn-on patches, and branded fabric tags all increase the weight and pack size of the hammock unnecessarily. We don't think you should have to carry around extra weight for the sake of our branding.

Dye sublimation is the fabric printing equivalency of a tattoo. This process relies on a special ink that, when combined with heat and pressure, turns directly from a solid into a gas. As this gas contacts nylon or polyester fabric, it permanently dyes the fabric resulting in bright, full-color graphics. This system allows us to print graphics and information on our bags without adding any weight or bulk.

Round 2!

I used this hammock during my thru hikes if the AT and PCT - it’s compact, lightweight, simple. Replacing it now because when I was inspecting it after 2 years I realized the fabric had almost worn through under the ropes at one end. Looking forward to many miles to come!
