Hammocks are usually made of either rope, or cloth. The rope hammocks are made of nylon or cotton ropes knitted together in the form of a large net. These are inexpensive and usually last for years if used properly. Rope hammocks also let air circulate around your back, and prevent excessive sweating. The only drawback is the fact that the ropes may dig into your skin. However, this can be avoided simply by spreading a thin sheet of cloth on the hammock. Cloth hammocks are made of thick sheets of absorbent cotton. These are even more comfortable than rope hammocks. There are no ropes that dig into your skin, and the fabric will wrap around your body, providing superior comfort. These do not allow circulation of much air around your back due to the thickness of the material, but the cotton fabric will absorb most of the perspiration, keeping you cool on a hot summer day.
This hammock is easy to setup as it comes with a hanging kit. The kit has ropes that are 10 feet in length, attached S hooks, and a detailed manual for fixing the hammock. The hammock can hold up to 250 pounds, and comes with 10 year warranty. It is 9.5 feet long and 4.5 feet wide.
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.
There are lots of countries like Guatemala, Mexico, El Salvador, Brazil and Nicaragua, where hammocks have always been used as an essential object. In these countries, hammocks have been used for more than 900 years which is truly fascinating. However, it is thought that hammocks were actually introduced by Mayan Indians in Central America about 1000 years ago.
