I have always fancied using a hammock for cycle touring. Looking to pick one up in the January sales. Have been looking at the DD Hammock range. Does anyone have any experience with them? Or any other recommendations?

Thanks Joseph. Never thought to look at Decathlon. Don't have a store on the small island I live on, but I know there is one in France for next time I pop over. Or Internet shopping of course. Worth trying one of these out for under GBP £10.00!

cheers Pete

I've been sleeping in hammocks for a while now. Most of them were made by me from rip stop. I would say don't waste your time for DIY and money if you are looking for something without "roof". In this case Decathlon hammock is cheap, light and looks like quite durable solution. 10E or something. Can't beat that [url=https://www.decathlon.co.uk/camping-hammock-id_8330395.html]https://www.decathlon.co.uk/camping-hammock-id_8330395.html[/url]

If you need something with a tarp .. Hennesy hammocks would be my choice. ++

I made a tarp long time ago for my hammock, now the DIY hammock is gone but tarp still works great with decathlon hammock.

I have heard good things about Hennessy hammocks.  Similar to you, I have thought about hammocks for touring. Just need to be near trees!
