AMAZONAS Ultra-Light hammock comparison – ADVENTURE vs. TRAVELLER

Our Ultra-Light hammocks made from parachute silk are 100% nylon. This high-performance material is not only extremely durable and strong, but also breathable. Furthermore, almost all AMAZONAS Ultra-Light hammocks are woven using the Ripstop technique, which makes them particularly resistant to tears.

Most AMAZONAS Ultra-Light hammocks are classified into two product series. The difference between these series lies in the thickness of the woven fibers.

Essentially, the ADVENTURE series is especially light and compact, while the TRAVELLER series is slightly heavier and more robust, yet still ultra-light and more competitively priced.

Below, you can find out which series best suits your type of hammock overnight camping experience.
