There are a lot of different types of hammocks available out there. There are also a dizzying array of parts and accessories available for these types of hammocks. Making sure your hammock is right for you will take a little preplanning. You'll want to consider the size, the hammock's intended use and material choices.

While bed lengths are fairly standard from hammock to hammock, bed widths vary - much like a larger mattress on your bad offers more comfort, but it might also take up more space in the area you want to use it. It's a good idea to scout out the area you will use the hammock and measure the space. This will give you a better clue as to what size of hammock will be right for you.

Remember, bed length is not overall length - most hammocks, when hung, require a minimum of 12 to 13 feet of space. This is because the ropes themselves can add additional space. Even if the length of the hammock is only 8 feet, the ropes of the hammock can take up a lot more space when it is fully hung up.

Also consider the weight of multiple users. Most hammocks have a standard, maximum capacity of 450 pounds, but larger hammocks can have maximum capacities of more than 600 pounds. If you are planning to have more than one person sit in the hammock at the same time, you will want to get a large, sturdy hammock.

Bed materials will be determined by use and, if desired, color. Some hammocks - such as those made of cotton - offer a softer feel, but may be unsuitable for outdoor use. Many of the natural and synthetic materials now used in making hammocks offer both comfort and durability.
