Sea To Summit has joined the market with what they are claiming to be the lightest hammock out there. Until now, most hammocks have produced 2 problems, bulky packaging, and heavy weight. Now you may say, “Come on, my ENO only weighs 1.3 lbs.” And hey, that’s a great weight, except at 1.3 lbs you are carrying around fabric that offers no insulation. So why not go lighter?
The Sea To Summit Hammock comes in at just 5.4 oz. Compared to the Eno at 19 oz, that’s a sizeable difference for the same function! To make it even better, Sea To Summit has designed their own lightweight straps coming in at 1 lbs. Put them together and the hammock and straps weigh just 2.4 oz more than just an ENO hammock. The only drawback to having a such a lightweight hammock is its strength. The Sea To Summit Hammock is advertised as only holding 300 lbs.
The Sea To Summit Ultralight Hammock will pack down to about the size of beer can. With this size and weight, the Ultralight Hammock will become a staple for the day hikers, and ultralighters alike. There is no official price set yet for the hammock, but we expect to see it at under a $100.
