The Traveler Hammock is a simple, no frills, end-gathered design. It measures 65”W x 120”L, so it’s plenty wide for an asymmetric/diagonal lay. It is available in both single and double layer and also features a structural ridgeline to take most of the guesswork out of setting the sag. (98” RL). It comes with your choice of suspensions, and a stuffsac is included. All fabric has a dwr finish (durable water repellent). All models are the same dimensions and are comfortable for someone up to 6'8"
The Travel Sock is our hammock sock designed to be used with the Blackbird and Traveler hammocks. A "sock", named after a tubular wind sock is a giant breathable fabric sack that the hammock hangs entirely inside of. It encloses the hammock and underquilt, and since it's enclosed it will generally be about 15-20 deg warmer compared to outside air temp. The Travel Sock is meant to be used mainly in cooler weather to protect the hammock and underquilt from wind and windblown moisture that might come in under the edge/ends of your tarp. The fabric is wind and water resistent, not waterproof. It will repel light moisture, but if conditions contain wet snow or moderate rain you'll still need a small tarp.

The two weights listed represent the two different suspension options
The travel net is simply a separate/removable bug net specifically designed to fit our travel hammock (or a similar or shorter length hammock body with a 100-101" ridgeline or less). It is made from black 1oz polyester noseeum netting and features an arched zipper that fully opens one side of the hammock when fully unzipped.
Every hammock comes with your choice of suspension, either the line/strap suspension or adjustable webbing suspension.
The adjustable webbing suspension is basically a cinch-buckle type suspension. If you choose this suspension, you’ll get 14’ of webbing per end. Each piece has a loop sewn into one end. You’ll place carabiners (sold separately in the accessories section) in these loops so you can simply take the webbing around the tree and clip back onto itself. All length adjustments are done by adjusting the webbing at the cinch buckle. This is by far the most quick and convenient type of suspension, and by far the most popular option.
The line/strap suspension cconsists of 2 tree straps which you will hitch (girth hitch/larkshead , see Animated Knots ) to the tree, leaving one end of the strap hanging free. This end has a welded ring which you will tie the hammock line to (via a slipped buntline hitch). All adjustments are made via tying/retying the knot. This is not nearly as popular as the adjustable webbing suspension and is generally only for folks who like to tie knots and are looking to save a few oz. However, with a little practice it is quick to tie, and since it’s “slipped” it unties very quickly. (note: the slipped buntline hitch may slip if used by users over 250#, so this knot may not be the best choice for heavier users)
All webbing is low stretch polyester and all line is low stretch single braid dyneema.
