HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR HAMMOCK

The Arbora Hammock is available in these three insulated options: 

3-SEASON HAMMOCK

-3°C / 26°F *

Best for: 

  • Above freezing camping

  • Extra warmth for Summer

  • Cold sleepers

4-SEASON HAMMOCK

-12°C / 10°F *

Best for: 

  • Winter camping

  • Extra warmth for Autumn

  • Cold sleepers 

1-SEASON HAMMOCK

10°C / 50°F *

Best for: 

  • Summer camping

  • Tropical destinations

  • Ultralight camping

* The temperature rating represents the comfort limit for an average person and is attained when using a sleeping bag that has at least the same comfort temperature rating. This limit is based on extensive field testing and is rather conservative. Any other methods of testing have not been used. 

Recommendations

We recommend to choose the warmest possible version, so you can enjoy maximum comfort, especially if You are a cold sleeper. 

A full hammock set including the insulated hammock as well as the hammock tarp offers You full shelter from the elements and is designed to work perfectly together. 

The ideal year-round hammock set is a combination of the 1-season and the 4-season hammock, allowing for the smallest and lightest insulated hammock during warmer months and maximum warmth during winter. You won't regret this choice! 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING YOUR HAMMOCK

There are 2 suspension options to choose from with the 2nd gen. Arbora hammock: 

  1. The simplest and fastest way to hang Your hammock is using Aero Cleats and 6mm rope. 

  2. Whoopie slings and soft shackles made out of Dyneema or Amsteel are the lightest and most advanced option. Whoopies are 75g lighter than Aero Cleats with ropes. 

Hammock setup guidelines

  • Always use tree straps to hang Your hammock to go easy on trees, hammock ropes and make the setup simpler. The recommended height for tree straps from the ground is about 2m / 6ft, while the hammock bottom should be about 0,6m / 2ft from the ground but never higher than 1m / 3ft. 

  • ​The distance between trees for Your hammock can be from 4m / 13ft to 7m / 23ft. 

  • The hammock should be set up hanging at 30° angles to obtain the best sleeping position. 

The Arbora hammock insulation aka underquilt

The insulating layer or underquilt is fully fitted and attached to the hammock, so you don't have to waste a second on it and can go straight to relaxing in Your hammock! 

How to set up the hammock tarp

Setting up the tarp is as easy as the hammock itself. Just lead the guylines around the tree 10-20cm / 4-8" below the treestraps, attach with the carabiners and pull taut. Attach the remaining 4 guylines to the ground with the attached pegs and pull the hammock taut with the Line-Lok® tensioning system. 

When in harsher conditions put the tarp as close on top of the hammock as possible for maximum shelter from the elements. 

See the video below for detailed unpacking and setting up as well as repacking instructions: 

SAFETY MEASURES - make sure to read and follow these each time You use a hammock! 

  • Take all non-soft items out of your pockets before entering the hammock, especially sharp and pointy objects, to avoid any damage to the hammock fabric.

  • Always choose safe and sturdy objects to hang your hammock from. Use only living trees with a minimum of 15cm / 6in diameter. Avoid hanging under dead branches.

  • Never hang your hammock more than 1m / 3ft from the ground, above slopes or openings or in any other hazardous location.

  • Never jump, stand or swing in your hammock.

  • Your hammock is meant for one person only. Do not exceed the weight limit of your hammock.

  • Double-check your hammock ropes and setup every time before entering it, to make sure there is no hazardous wear to the hammock and the setup is safe.

  • Never leave children in a hammock unattended.

 
 

THE ARBORA HAMMOCK MATERIALS & CARE

Materials and technologies used in making our hammocks

All the materials used in the manufacturing of the Arbora Hammocks are of the highest quality. We choose every item to be the best compromise between low weight and bulk while being durable and strong: 

  • 70D & 40D ripstop lightweight parachute nylon

  • 3500mm hydrostatic head 40D silicone coated ripstop nylon

  • Ultralight mosquito net, 155 mesh/cm² / 1000 mesh/in²

  • Valtherm® Zero Down high-tech thermal insulation

  • YKK® zippers

  • PP ropes, guylines and shock cord

  • Dyneema and Amsteel rope

  • Very durable polyamid webbing

  • ITW Nexus & 2M® plastic details

  • Line-Lok® guy-line tensioners

  • Clamcleat® rope cleats

  • The strongest available threads

To minimize stress and avoid tearing the hammock fabric, we are using fabric welding in the most critical areas. It has taken us over 2 years to customize and perfect this technology to be strong and durable enough. Our welding is at least as resistant to tearing as a regular seam and doesn't rip the fabric, making it the perfect solution for hammocks. 

All of our products are manufactured in Estonia by Arbora Gear OÜ from start to beginning and carefully inspected and tested for any errors. 

Hammock care and maintenance

The Arbora hammock is perfectly machine washable! Put the suspension ropes inside the hammock and close the zipper fully. Use a liquid sports or technical detergent and a 30°C / 86°F gentle cycle. Do not bleach, dry clean or tumble dry. 

After washing our insulated products, leave them to rinse and dry flat. Do not hang the insulated items to dry to avoid any damage to the insulation layer. Dry Your gear ASAP and never later than 24h of it getting wet. 

Store Your insulated hammock similarly to sleeping bags. Never leave the hammock in the stuff sack or compressed for longer than 24h. When not in use, store the hammock out of the stuff sack to ensure the best insulation properties.
