Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy, but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing. While we’ve written about the best camping tents, delved into the best camping gadgets to bring on your trip outdoors, and even compiled the best hiking boots to get you to your site, our camping guide wouldn’t be complete without a look at the best hammocks to relax in when you get there. Here, the best on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best Overall Camping Hammock

Wise Owl Outfitters Hammock for Camping

“I absolutely love the Wise Owl Outfitters hammock. I purchased this for an overnight camping trip and I’m glad I did. Super comfy, and I was able to get a couple hours of uninterrupted sleep. It’s small enough that I could pack this in my backpack for day hikes. I’d highly recommend this over the expensive ones at other outdoor retailers. Overall great product, with the only downside that others have mentioned being that the rope can be a little short. I ordered the Wise Owl XL Hammock Tree Straps to compensate.”

Best Lightweight Camping Hammock

Eagles Nest Outfitters ENO DoubleNest Hammock

“Since I got my hammock, I spend twice as much time outside. I didn’t know what I was missing. I camp more, I hike more, I kayak more, I party more. So easy to set up, super comfortable. There are never any achy camp mornings anymore. I wake up refreshed and ready to go. The double is worth the money, too, so the sun doesn’t burn out your eyes or face in the morning. You can just pull the hammock around you like you’re in a pea pod. The attached-stuff sack is handy for your glasses, keys, meds, whatever you might need in the night. I’ll stop now, but seriously, I cannot recommend an ENO hammock enough.”

Best Sturdy Camping Hammock

MalloMe Double Portable Camping Hammock

“I am six-two and 250 pounds, and I love the size of this thing! Very roomy and very sturdy! This is going to be my go-to hammock for camping, even though it is a little heavier and larger than my other camping hammock. I just love it that much! At this price point, I don’t think you can beat it. Oh, there are others out there for cheaper, and I have a couple (I’m kind of a hammock nut), but they are not as nice as this one. I am very happy with this hammock!”

Best Double Camping Hammock

Bear Butt Double Parachute Camping Hammock

“The hammock is very big and comfortable. I bought this for personal use and don’t plan to ever sleep double, but it’s big enough to fit my boyfriend and me both snuggled together comfortably, with more room on each side of us. My boyfriend and I aren’t small either; he’s six-seven and 280 pounds and I’m five-nine and 140 pounds, but we both had tons of head and foot space left over. Together it felt secure, and we even made it swing while we closed our eyes and napped. Definitely would recommend to anyone wanting a high-quality hammock at an affordable price.”

Best Camping Hammock With Mosquito Netting

Everest Double Camping Hammock with Mosquito Net

“Seriously, this hammock is everything I wanted and more. It’s insanely comfortable (my girlfriend and I have fallen asleep on it countless times and we’ve only had it for like two weeks). I probably searched through 30 to 40 different hammocks trying to find one that was large enough, light enough, came with good carabiners/tree straps, and had a strong warranty behind it. This hammock not only met but exceeded all of those requirements. The mosquito net is also a major feature I wanted and the fact that this hammock has a super easy-to-use one that I’m pretty sure also has YKK zippers is amazing!”

Best Extra-Large Camping Hammock

Gold Armour XL Double Parachute Camping Hammock

“You’re not going to find a better deal on a parachute hammock, anywhere. This is the one. I’m a big guy, six-six, 250 pounds. This thing makes me feel light as a feather. I owned an ENO for five years. Good product, single, little small. I always felt it was a bit pricey, but that was the beginning of the market surge of hammocks. Getting back into camping, I decided to check this guy out based on Amazon research. This is a complete package and even simpler to set up than an ENO. Highly recommend this bad boy.”

 Best Tunnel Camping Hammock

isYoung Hammock With Mosquito Net Parachute Fabric Hammock Net

“It is great to be able to relax outside without having to worry about all the bugs or bug spray. The net is at least 36 inches above you as you’re lying down, so you have plenty of room. My husband was very impressed as well. He was able to relax and enjoy the view of the pond without getting bit up by mosquitoes. The hammock is very comfortable, and having the mesh net is a plus. The hammock also has an attached pocket, which makes it very convenient to fold the hammock and carry to the beach, camping, etc. I will definitely recommend this product.”

 Best Camping Hammock-and-Tent Combo

Lawson Hammock Blue Ridge Camping Hammock and Tent

“This is my first time using a hammock for sleep and at a campsite. Have to summarize and say it was absolutely epic to be off the ground and to see the stars and fireflies as you’re falling asleep. Took a few hours to fall asleep and get over the excitement. I did not need level ground and there was a tree stump right below me. This is not really an ultralight hammock, as it comes with a bug net, rain fly, shock-cord poles, spreader bars, and heavy gauge rope, but no tree straps. Regardless, that weight may be heavy for a hammock, but is very light for a tent and compared to all the other junk we carry.”

Best Camping Hammock-and-Tent Combo With a Rain Tarp

Hennessy Hammock Expedition Series — Lightweight Camping and Survival Shelter

“I have so many positive things to say about this hammock. It is, in my opinion, the absolute best hammock on the market. I’ve used this hammock about a dozen times since February (after trying countless others), and I can’t get over how comfortable it is, how stable it is, and how easy it is to set up. I’m six feet tall and 230 pounds, and the Expedition Asym doesn’t sag me down to the ground like parachute-style hammocks do. Hennessy’s incorporation of the ridgeline directly into the design makes getting in and out of this hammock a breeze, whereas others cause you to play a balancing act.”

Best Camping Hammock Underquilt

OneTigris Hammock Underquilt

“Very well made and warm. It’s equal to or better than the much more expensive ENO Blaze Underquilt (which we also have). We have used it under our Grand Trunk Skeeter Beater two to three times, and it solves the cold-butt issue. Lowest temps we have experienced so far is mid-50s, and felt fine with no sleeping bag and used a medium-weight polyester blanket. We will most likely be upgrading to sleeping bags for fall, winter, and spring.”
