DD Hammocks Jungle Hammock Modular System Review

The double-layer DD Jungle Hammock is a great option to hold a pad in place, but isn’t necessary. If you want to save a little more weight, go for the single-layer.

    Lots of great questions, Mark.

    The DD Hammock will be lighter and more suitable for backpacking than the Lawson, and shipping will be cheaper too. If you know you will be encountering a lot of rain on your trip, you might invest in a bigger tarp. In my own experience, the DD Jungle Hammock’s tarp/weather cover would do fine, especially if you leave the tent poles behind. The tent poles pull up the tarp and expose the under side of the hammock more. This isn’t a huge deal in some situations, but if you can’t get a good site that is somewhat protected from the wind, you might get some sideways rain issues.

    A good tarp alternative for less is the Ticket to the Moon diamond tarp.

    I think the DD Jungle Hammock is a good competitor to the Clark NX-250.

    As for insulation, are you looking for a cost-effective (less expensive) solution? For most 3-season camping down to 0°C (32°C), most people can get away with a closed-cell foam pad. I like the military pads because they are wider (most pads are only 20 inches wide vs 24 inches for the GI pad). The widest pad that I recommend for hammocks is the wide Thinlight Pads from Gossamer Gear.

    The double-layer DD Jungle Hammock is a great option to hold a pad in place, but isn’t necessary. If you want to save a little more weight, go for the single-layer.
