Brand: Sea to Summit
Model: Ultralight Hammock
Our take Weight is only half the story with this hammock. Despite the Ultralight’s gauzy look, our tester lauded its durability. High-tenacity nylon fibers blended with monofilament nylon—made from single threads rather than multifilament yarn—result in a fabric that’s just as strong as regular ripstop nylon but much thinner. This hammock shows no signs of wear after seven months in the field.
Features Testers praised the Ultralight’s ability to squish down to the size of an orange in its stuff sack. Its slim profile makes for cramped quarters, though, and our 6’2” tester couldn’t lay diagonally for fear of falling out.
Trail cred “This hammock excels in warm weather, as cooling air easily passes through the material. I was able to stay comfortable on muggy and calm evenings,” said our tester after a trek through North Carolina’s Pisgah National Forest. 5.4 oz.
