Some types of hammocks, such as Brazilian and Mayan hammocks, are hung directly from trees, posts, ceiling joists etc, however, other hammocks have to be attached to a hammock stand to make them useable. You can buy these types of hammocks in packages, and the stand and hammock will come together, ready to be set up. If you have found yourself in need of a stand, however, then you'll need to know if your hammock has "spreader bars" or not.
Generally speaking, if you have spreader bars, you need to buy a stand for that hammock, and if there are no spreader bars, then, if you think you would like a stand, you need to buy a stand designed specifically for a hammock without spreader bars. Hammocks which don't use spreader bars, like Mayan or Brazilian hammocks, hang much deeper than their spreader-bar counterparts, and as a result, if you have a hammock which doesn't have spreader bars, and you try to use it with a stand designed for hammocks with spreader bars, you'll most likely find yourself dipping so deep that you connect with the ground - not fun.
The Travel Hammock Ultra Light Hammock: When you are going hiking or camping, it is advisable to carry as light luggage as possible. However that does not mean you have to sacrifice your comforts. This hammock is just right for lazing around, taking an afternoon nap, or even getting a good night's sleep. It is made of pure polyester taffeta. The weight is just 12 ounces and hence, you do not add weight while carrying your bag pack. This is the best option to keep from sleeping on the ground. If you are traveling in an area where it may not be safe to sleep on the ground, using this hammock can offer very good solution.
A very important part of the hammock is the weave it is created in. Many hammocks are flat canvas type hammocks that don't do as good a job as conforming to your body shape like the hand-woven Mexican open weave type. With the open weave generally the smaller the gaps the great comfort and support this gives, yet still allows air to circulate through and around you while resting in your hammock. So hammocks often seen as the mass produced varieties will have large open weaves in rope type cord. These do not support you well and dissuade you from wanting to spend much time in your hammock. Look for the authentic Mexican hand-woven corded hammocks as these provide a very high level of comfort, strength and support.
