Easy Camp Havana Double Hammock Photos
For me, hammocks immediately bring up thoughts of chilling on warm summer days, gently swinging beneath the trees, and listening to the summer breeze and the birdsong.
Unfortunately, the reality is a little different; I'd never get a chance to get in a hammock for some peace without at least one of the kids wanting to climb aboard!
However, when I saw the Havana Double Hammock from Easy Camp, I just had to ask them if I could review a sample. Could this be a family-sized hammock?
Easy Camp Havana Double Hammock Review
The Havana Hammock arrived in a matching brightly coloured carry case.
We own a traditional webbed hammock that we bought in Mexico long ago. However, getting that hammock out of the bag tends to get in a tangled mess.
Not so with the Havana Hammock, as it is fabric based with only a small amount of webbing.
The hammock is a really good size. We've had two adults in it with no problem.
Putting up the Hammock
At each end of the hammock is a hefty-sized loop. However, the hammock doesn't come with anything to tie it to. You'll need to find that yourself.
Fortunately, we had plenty of rope to secure the hammock in our garden.
What if there are no trees?
We don't have trees in our garden to hang a hammock from, so we used some sturdy fence posts.
However, you may not have trees at the campsite if you want to take the Havana Hammock camping.
An option is to get a hammock stand.
I looked into this as I really wanted to take this hammock when we went camping.
The problems I found are:
- There are not many stands sold without hammocks. The hammocks that are sold with stands tend to be just single hammocks and not the larger family-friendly double size, like the Havana.
- Many are fixed and not portable without reassembly, making them not very practical to take camping.
- A lot of them are quite expensive.
So for now, we'll have to use the Havana Hammock in the garden unless we know we are going to a campsite with sufficient trees.
Getting in the Hammock
Getting in a hammock for the first time always guarantees a few laughs.
The technique is quite easy. Simply plant your backside in the middle of the hammock, then swing your legs and body around.
Though, place the hammock over soft ground, just in case ;-)
We like the Havana Hammock. The only problem we've had is finding suitable places to hang it.
My ask of Easy Camp is to develop a portable folding hammock stand that can be used alongside their range of hammocks, which would make it easier to enjoy this hammock more.
