Our Ultra-Light parachute silk hammocks are made of 100% nylon. This high-performance material is extremely durable, stable and breathable at the same time. In addition, almost all AMAZONAS Ultra-Light hammocks are woven using the Ripstop technique, which makes them particularly tear-resistant.
Most AMAZONAS Ultra-Light hammocks are classified in two product series. The difference between the two series lies in the thickness of the woven fibres.
In essence, the ADVENTURE series is particularly light and compact, while the TRAVELLER series is a little heavier and more robust, but still ultra-light and more competitively priced.
Here you can find out which series best suits your type of hammock overnight camping experience.
