AMAZONAS ultralight hammocks are wider than standard. This is important for you to be able to stretch out completely and lie comfortably.
When wild camping, many people even spend the whole night in their hammock. So that you can experience the full comfort of lying in your hammock, we explain the Brazilian lying technique for you here. Brazilians still use their hammocks as a substitute for a bed!
Just try it out. The most important thing here is that you do not hang the hammock too tightly, but loosely. See picture below.
You are lying correctly when your body fans out the hammock nicely by lying diagonally and you can relax and watch what is happening above and around you.
It is important that the hanging loops of the hammock are attached at head height and are only about 3 m apart. This allows the hammock to sag in a deep arc. Only this makes it possible that you can lie in it diagonally ("from corner to corner") like a real Brazilian instead of lengthwise. Thus the back remains straight! This is the secret how you can lie comfortably and relaxed in the hammock for hours.
We also have the right fastening material for you.
A further advantage of this reclining technology
The side fabric of the hammock is stretched taut and has no chance of collapsing over the face and obstructing the view.
THERMO hammocks – making sure you are lying the right way, as well as protecting you from the cold
With our THERMO hammocks, we have made use of this lying technique so that you can sleep comfortably in your hammock even in cooler temperatures. A compartment for an insulating mat has been sewn diagonally onto the underside of the THERMO hammock. This keeps the sleeping pad in the right position and prevents it from slipping while you sleep.
