Freedom Hammock V1 – Yukon Outfitters

In general, camouflage fabrics tend to be more expensive than plain weave and colors. The YO Freedom hammock is no exception. It’s plain-weave cousins are much less expensive, but even then, the Freedom is aggressively priced for a hammock of its size, quality, low weight, and USA manufacture (as of this writing, the hammock was discounted to $40).

The hammock is highly-modular, like any gathered-end, recreational hammock on the market. You can mix-and-match any number of bug nets, suspension systems, tarps, and other accessories to customize it to your liking. When I went camping and backpacking with the Freedom hammock, I often paired it with bug netting, under quilts, and tarps to suit the trip. The Freedom is perfectly sized for all off-the-shelf accessories.

    The hammock is highly-modular, like any gathered-end, recreational hammock on the market. You can mix-and-match any number of bug nets, suspension systems, tarps, and other accessories to customize it to your liking. When I went camping and backpacking with the Freedom hammock, I often paired it with bug netting, under quilts, and tarps to suit the trip. The Freedom is perfectly sized for all off-the-shelf accessories.

    The Freedom Hammock is among the first of many new hammocks from Yukon Outfitters that is completely produced in the USA. The fabric was custom designed from YO and has several interesting features: military-spec, high-tensile strength, DWR treatment, and a unique camouflage design. What I really like about the design is the single panel hammock body. Without the seams from multiple panels, there are no tight points and you can use the entirety of the hammock to lay in. The ends of the hammock are gathered together with sewn webbing loops, which reduces how much the sides curl into a ball at the end, which in turn relaxes the long sides and prevents the bucket seat phenomenon common with some hammock. This curling effect can promote shoulder strain and also make it harder to lay flat on the diagonal. Neither of these are issues withe the YO Freedom hammock.
