Field Test: Hammocks
From light to luxe, hammocks take a star turn.
Sleeping on air has never been easier—or more comfortable.
Consider 2017 the year of the hammock. They’re lighter, more weatherproof, and more comfortable—and manufactured by niche brands and major companies alike. We tested 11 models over eight months to bring you the best of the year. From ultralights to hanging castles, there’s something here for every person who wants to try something new and leave the ground behind.
