ETROL Camping Hammock Review
Finding a good camping hammock is much easier said than done, but still doable. When you go camping, you need a durable and spacious hammock that will keep you comfy all night long.
Preferably, you probably don’t want to pay a fortune for it either. Well, we have found one specific camping hammock that meets these criteria to a tee. Let’s take a look
ETROL Camping Hammock
Today, we want to take a closer look at the ETROL Camping Hammock. This is a really cool hammock as it can be also used as a tent on the ground. It comes in at an affordable price and comes with everything you or two people need for a good night’s sleep.
Who is this Hammock for?
The ETROL Camping Hammock is technically a two person hammock designed for use by couples. That said, it can also be used by a single person. It’s designed for people who love camping in the woods and need something reliable. Moreover, it’s also made for people who might not always have access to trees for hanging. Being able to convert into a tent is definitely super cool.
Your purchase comes complete with a 55 x 115 inch hammock made of 70D nylon fabric. It comes complete with a rainfly, aluminum tent poles, tent stakes, tree straps for hanging, carabiners, and a carrying case.
Overview of Features
This has to be one of the most versatile camping hammocks out there at this time. The reason for this is because it is a three in one hammock. First of all, it can be used as a normal hammock that is hung between trees without any sort of cover.
Second, you can use it as a bug net hammock. Remember that it comes complete with a bug net to protect you during the night. Being protected from nasty critters during the night is of course a big bonus.
Moreover, mounting the bug net on the ETROL Camping Hammock is about as easy as it gets. What’s nice is that this bug net still allows you to see the stars above. It also allows for a good deal of airflow and breathability. It comes complete with special aluminum rods that create the frame for the bug net, which you then attach it to.
Finally, the ETROL Camping Hammock can also be used as a tent and set up on the ground. The same aluminum poles that make the frame from the bug net are also used to make the tent. This is of course very convenient in the event that you don’t have any good trees to hang the hammock from.
That said, do keep in mind that it doesn’t have any kind of cover. This means that the tent roof is open, well at least apart from the bug net. Just keep in mind that this tent won’t keep you dry in the event that it rains. It does have a bit of a sun hood on either end to help keep the sun out of your eyes.
In terms of the overall size, the ETROL Camping Hammock is technically designed for two people. It comes in at 55 by 115 inches. This should be large enough for two people to sleep fairly comfortably. That said, if we are talking about fairly large people, then it may just be suitable for one person. It does depend on the size of the occupants in question.
What does stand out is that the ETROL Camping Hammock is made with 70D nylon fabric. This is a very strong material often used in parachute making. You can rest assured that it is very strong and durable, particularly when it comes to tear resistance. Moreover, this hammock has a weight capacity of 500 pounds, which is indeed quite impressive.
The material itself is fairly comfortable to sleep on. It is certainly quite soft on the skin. The nylon itself is not overly breathable, but the hammock is not covered at the top, so it shouldn’t be an issue.
What you may appreciate about the ETROL Camping Hammock is that it comes in at just 2.5 pounds. It’s not the lightest camping hammock out there. However, it’s still lightweight enough to be fairly portable and easy to set up too. On that same note, it also comes with a carrying case. Plus, it folds into compact package for easy transportation.
