DD Hammocks: Hammock Range

There are seven reasons why we’re recommending DD Hammocks.

  • They’re a UK supplier, meaning you get UK based customer service;
  • We’ve tried the service personally, and it’s good. You get a quick response, they’re helpful and friendly;
  • The quality of their products is good and the products feature thoughtful design. We sleep in their products.
  • They’re inexpensive, and you don’t see quality compromised for price. There’s no point having a cheap hammock where midges climb through the mosquito netting, the hammocks and netting tears, or where the strapping breaks!
  • They have a wide range of accessories allowing you to spread the cost of building your ultimate hammock camping system.
  • Fast Delivery (when we purchased in the morning, we got our items next day).
  • If we recommend something, we don’t want our visitors upset. We feel confident with DD.

DD Hammock Tarpaulins

DD Hammock is a UK based hammock camping equipment supplier. Within their tarpaulin range are two in particular which we like. The word ‘basha’ is a one used for a temporary shelter (not one of my father’s more colourful friends before people get confused).

DD Tarp/Basha 3m x 3m

diamondhangThis is a great little tarp. Lightweight with 19 suspension/attachment points allowing you to rig it up in a number of different ways. Above a hammock, we find hanging the tarp in a folded diamond shape (see pic) does best to keep you dry in the rain. A 3m x 3m size tarp is large enough to keep you dry and fully cover an adult hammock when hung in this way.

Remembering our school maths and things about measuring the hypotenuse, suspended as a diamond, a 3m x 3m tarp covers 4.24m of ridge line (…just making a point to my daughter, learning to calculate a hypotenuse can be helpful in life).

Olive green, the tarp weights only 790grammes and includes 4 guy lines and 4 tent pegs. There’s a choice of two colours: olive green or coyote brown. I like the green ones.
