There are several styles to pick from for a quilted hammock such as a Malibu Convertible which holds two people and is reversible; the Hatteras Large Quilted Hammock with the Spring Bay Stripes, there is the Hatteras Large Quilted Hammock Soft Weave and several other quilted styles to look at. If you like the Cotton Hammock, this is one of the traditional hammocks that criss-crosses and comes in styles such as the Maui Double Cotton Twist Rope, Original Pawleys Island Large Cotton Rope, The Stowaway Luxurious Cotton Rope Hammock and several other cotton styles. Another popular hammock style is the Camping Hammocks. The Camping Hammocks come in styles such as Marina Double Portable, Hammaka Parachute Nylon Silk Portable and several other styles.
The entire range of hammocks can be spilt into two categories regarding stands - those with, and those without spreader bars. The reason for this is that hammocks which don't have spreader bars must be hung much higher than those with spreader bars. Spreader bars are pieces of wood or metal attached horizontally at each end of the hammock bed to spread the fabric out.
One more thing you should know is that rope and fabric hammocks can have spreader bars at the ends or be stave-less (traditional hammock without bars). You might think that spreader bars add comfort, but in fact it is the other way around - hammocks without the bars are more comfortable, because they wrap around your body better. If for appearance reasons you prefer hammocks with spreader bars, go for hammocks with 3 hanging points instead of just 2 - these have much less chance of tipping over.
The hammock was first used between 450-404 B.C. by one of Socrates students. Sometime in the 1700s, it is reported that Christopher Columbus brought the hammock back to Europe from the islands he had explored. In their early days, hammocks were constructed with tree bark sisal leaves. Today's hammocks are constructed with fabrics such as cotton, polyester, Nylon, Olefin and Nylon Silk. Along with the many fabrics used to make hammocks, the design styles have improved.
