How about hammock sizing? What is the right size hammock for me? The below information gives an indicative size by hammock, but this will vary as hammocks made in different regions; eg Colombia and Brazil will have differing dimensions by size. Be sure to check the individual product pages where the particular product dimensions will be displayed.
Single Hammock: Small and lightweight, the single hammock is best sized for one average size person or for children to relax in. Single hammocks require less space to hang in so are a good option when the distance between trees and posts might be a little on the short side.
Double Hammock: Good for 1-2 persons. Giving you extra space to sprawl out when used alone or good for when you want to share with a loved one and get cosy. Generally longer and wider than the single size.
Family Hammock: A hammock for the whole family to enjoy together. Large and roomy enough so the kids can join you. Even without a full load a family size hammock is a very comfortable hammock for one person and is a great size option for sleeping the night through.
