I was hoping for a hammock for my banana.

Time to learn all about Yukon Outfitters


Comments from a previous offer

I’ve bought two mosquito hammocks and a rainfly. The hammock/tarp combo was easy enough for a first timer to set up and is pretty comfortable. The other hammock was a gift and the recipient loves it. Freakin’ steal, these.

Be sure to get some paracord or straps to hang these, though.

These are great hammocks once you replace the hardware with something a lot lighter. I have just gotten back from a 53 mile section hike on the AT with the netted one and it was compact and worked great. Wonderful deal for someone getting into hanging.

I have 2 of these (one for the GF) I would recommend straps over paracord. The paracord stretches and even more so when it gets wet if I remember correctly.

No to mention paracord damages the trees much more than straps. The straps allow the force to be applied over a greater surface area, so it is much better for the tree.

I’m looking for something in a business hammock.

The Yukon Outfitters Double is almost identical to the ENO doublenest in dimension with the only difference being the load rating (300# vs 400#). The extra size from the double allows for more versatility for both sleeping and sitting. I’ve got two other smaller hammocks but the Yukon Double is easily my favorite since I am 6’2". The hardware provided is a bit mediocre. I swapped out the ties at the ends for Amsteel continuous loops and purchased tree straps from Dutchwaregear.com. Do not use paracord or nylon. Both will stretch and cause the hammock to sag over time. Paracord will also cut into the bark of the tree damaging it.

This truly is a fantastic hammock for the price and if you are on the fence about purchasing one, do not hesitate anymore and buy it now. You will not be disappointed.

What kind of straps are you referring to, velcro?

For those of you on the fence…GET ONE! You won’t be disappointed with this hammock. I have one and gave one as a gift and we both love it!

However, having said that, there are some additional considerations to making this even better.

1 - Get some 1" poly webbing with cam buckles and hooks Tie-down straps). Harbor Freight has a pair of them for around $10. The poly straps wont stretch like nylon straps do and these are well over half the price (and longer and better) than getting Slap Straps or any other “strap system” from the hammock makers. Also, the cam buckles are nice in that they are easy to adjust (if you wrap it correctly around a tree). Once you clip your hammock into the strap’s hooks, you can then use the cam buckle to take in or let more length out of your hammock for more/less arch and get that perfect angle without doing much work.

2 - If you don’t like the net system from Yukon, get the regular hammock and get the bug net from ENO, it fits any hammock. (it just slides in and covers the entire hammock vs just the top portion like the Yukon does).

3 - get a decent length (100’+)of paracord. It’s infinitely useful for camping and hanging things. You will use this as a ridgeline over your hammock to either hang stuff or to hang Point #4

4 - Cheap tarp. Get a cheap long rectangular tarp from somewhere like HarborFreight or wherever. This will be your rain fly and doesn’t cost a ton. It should be large enough to cover the entire length of your hammock’s straps from both mount points. This will keep even torrential downpours out and let you sleep completely dry (vs a rain fly).

5 - Get some cheap tent stakes, the metal stick kind not the plastic kind. These will be used to stake down your tarp should you need to use it. $4? from Walmart or wherever.

5 - Get a small stuff sack (army navy store, camping supply store, wherever, costs $5) to store everything but the hammock and tarp in (straps, stakes, paracord, etc).

Hope everyone enjoys this hammock as much as I do! Enjoy!

See my post for helpful info.

Could you please provide a link for the exact straps and buckles you recommend using?

This is a GUESS, but I think he’s referring to these: http://www.harborfreight.com/set-of-4-6-ft-x-1-inch-combo-tie-downs-47727.html

I debated getting this and I like the buckle-slide adjust idea, but I ended up getting the ‘Eagles Nest Outfitters Atlas Strap’ from Amazon instead primarily because it weighs less and packs smaller.

I also picked up a couple of ‘Black Diamond Neutrino Carabiner’ per JPH37’s hardware comment.

Feel kinda ridiculous dropping $50 on a $50 investment (Hammock and Rainfly + S&H), but I suspect I’ll be glad I did on this year’s Appalachian Trail hike week - especially while the other guys are busy digging rocks out of the ground for their tents and sharing fart smells in the 4-man tent.

Note that I’ve never hung a hammock before, so take this all with a grain of salt.

does anyone know if the mosquito net is removable?

I just had one pulled out of the bag, the net didn’t seem removable, no.
