Hammock camping from Ticket To The Moon

And since the hammock camping is available in various type, materials and style, today I’ll introduce you about the hammock from Ticket To The Moon (TTTM) as one of the manufacturer based in Bali, Indonesia. So, all of the basic things about the hammock will be so related to the TTTM’s product.

1. How many people could be fit in a hammock?

There are two popular hammocks camping which are the single and the double hammock. The single one surely recommended to be used by one person, so with the last size for the 2 person. The single hammock itself will make you sleeping comfortably alone and also could be fit for two person as well but it will going too intimate as I thought. You know what I mean right?

If you decide to buy the double hammock camping size, you may also use it for about 3 person. But, if only they will sitting down, it may still comfortable. But when 3 of them are trying to sleep in it, then it really not recommended at all. There is also a King Size Hammock where can be used by the two adults and a child.

All are depending on the size, so the bigger you get, the more people you will invite. So later, don’t be surprised if by any chances you are witnessing more than five people have a great fun in a Mammock (the biggest size).

2. What about the guarantee?

Manufacturer like Ticket to the Moon, most of their products carry a 10 years warranty against defects in workmanship and materials. If you get the damaged one, it is better if you could returned it so the manufacturer could help you in repair the hammock or change it with the new one. You’d better ask yourself about this before buying at wherever places or online shops. And such any other products beside the hammock, I think most of the guarantee will not cover rips, burns, tears, and damages due to accidents, wear and tear, improper care, miss-use or the natural breakdown of colors and materials over time. I think you should have known about this, right?

Related to the products guarantee, you’ve also known that the hammock itself is made of the nylon fabric that is, you may say, as the extremely resistant. But, you should also aware that it also fragile. If you get the small holes or burns of your hammock, those can be repaired with the “repair patch.” You may need to find about it online in case you will need it someday.

But if you have bought one of the hammock camping from TTTM, the good news is that we all want to hear is that they will never let their customers down. So it is better to get in touch with the team for further info and update.

3. Is the hammock camping breathable and why is that important?

Yes, it is need to be asked as well since I think it also one of the important thing to be known. If you are asking about the hammocks from TTTM, then the answer is YES, it is breathable.

The important thing about this is not only in helping you breathing, literally. Or as an ventilation for the air circulation. But also to quickly drain your sweat in the hammock. The usage of the porous nylon fabric will really friendly whether for the adults or even the children. The material will not hold the water as well, so even you are leaving the hammock in a heavy rains without a tarp above it, draining it will be very easy and fast. Moreover if you have a sponge to absorb the water or the even the duster.
And no need to think about the threat of the rot or mildew if you are leaving it for days.

4. How much space needed for hanging the hammock?

For setting up your hammock between trees, poles or other vertical surfaces, you need a maximum distance for about 3 and 4.5 meters.

If you can not find the poles in that distance, then you need to increase the height of the hooks so it’ll be looks like a curve. But if at the field you find that the poles are further apart, you can use the nautical rope to bridge the distance as you may have seen the pictures or videos where travellers are sleeping between the cliffs. So you may need to think for buying one if possible because you will never know what kind of the fields you are facing one day.

Then, the distance that you should also need to be aware of is between your bottom of the hammock and the ground. The safest way of sleeping in a hammock is no more than 45 cm or 18 inches above the ground, just in case if your anchoring wasn’t secure enough. But, if you are at the hill or mountain, keep in mind that you may also need to think about the wild animals or the beasts. So in another place and situation, the above distance may be changed.

5. How to clean the hammock?

The first rule you need to follow when washing your hammock is: remember to remove the hooks or carabiners but you needn’t to untie any knots. Washing it gently at 30 degree Celsius without bleach using a gentle detergent. After you have washed it, then hang or lay your hammock flat to dry and never use a tumble dryer for it. But since different manufacturers may have the different rules as well related to the design and materials used, then you may need to read the manual. But, if you want to know how to clean a hammock from TTTM, then read the below rules from different methods how to deal with it.

  • Washing using machine:
    Tie ends together with string just below the end loops. Tie the hammock again at the other end, and once more in the middle. This will prevent tangling. Put the hammock in a pillow case and tie it tightly. Use a mild detergent, no bleach, and wash gently. Dry the hammock immediately after the rinse cycle by hanging it or laying flat to dry.
  • Hand Washing:
    Tie ends together with string just below the end loops. Tie the hammock again at the other end, and once more in the middle. This will prevent tangling. In a bathtub or a large sink, immerse your hammock in the water and mild detergent mixture (do not use bleach!). Agitate the hammock until it’s clean and rinse thoroughly. Hang hammock to dry directly after washing.

Those are 5 basic things and may be frequently ask questions that I believe will be useful for the customers especially the new guy that just decided for camping in a hammock.
