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.
