The Ultralight hammock is light and cheap – great to satisfy your curiosity about hammock camping. The combination of weight (10 ounces), price ($19.99), and length (9 feet) is hard to find. It is made of machine washable nylon, with a built-in pocket for self-stuffing. It comes with steel “S” hooks at each end. A separate hanging kit, consisting of two pieces of 10-foot pre-knotted 4.5 mm cord, is available for $5. Two-year warranty.
