Yukon Outfitters Double Travel Hammock (Review)

Up for review today is my new Yukon Outfitters Double Travel Hammock!

I just received this superb hammock last week from Woot.com (Yukon Outfitters Double Travel Hammock) and got the chance to go out and review it on Wednesday before the colder winter temps dropped here in Springfield, Missouri where we’ve been visiting my wife’s family for the holidays.

First off, this hammock is every bit of what was described on the website before I bought it. The quality of such an inexpensive hammock like this one has made it a fantastic buy for this holiday season! Attached Hammock Stuff Sack

And here are just some random photos of the area I chose to do the video review at… and what appears to be a Cardinal that got severely dominated, likely by a hawk!!

    What kind of rope did you use to hang up the hammock? I couldn’t understand the “150 test???” rope that was said in the video. Can you let me know what kind of rope is appropriate to use for adult weight to attach to a tree. I liked the way he lasso-ed the rope to the tree so you can have various lengths of rope depending on how far apart your tree is.

    Thank you!

      Hi Lydia!

      Thank you for watching my review! :-) The 150lb test rope is just a simple nylon utility rope that I purchased from Wal-mart. It’s about a half an inch in diameter, maybe a little larger. The rope itself is a 150lb test (that refers to the breaking tensile strength of the single rope), so I just doubled it to double the breaking strength and match the hammock weight limit. I would just suggest going to Wal-mart and picking up a similar rated rope and doubling it up like I did to achieve the same results.
      Let me know if you have any other questions!
