With luxury rivaled only by its durability, our Traditional Cotton Rope Hammock by Tropic Island represents the culmination of 125 years of hammock craftsmanship.
Our Max-Density 8mm rope improves comfort by significantly reducing rope elongation under tension. This results in natural, more supportive fit. Less dense, lighter rope hammocks (even those advertised at 8mm thick) stretch excessively under tension, causing discomfort and dangerous rounding of the spine.
Our hammocks are constructed of over 1000 feet of these densely woven cotton fibers. Tightly-woven hammocks boast functional beauty: See the quality yourself in the double looped strands connecting the bed of your hammock to the braided ring knot at either end. Many manufacturers skimp on the loop attachments, which equates to less rope. Not so with our product.
The industry-leading weave we produce is supported by hardwood spreader bars. Your hammock rope passes through the holes of this bar, producing substantial friction. We countersink your hammocks spreader bar holes, reducing the severity of the friction between rope and wood. Competing spreader bars without countersunk holes constantly rub hammock rope against a sharp wooden right angle, which drastically reduces durability. Your hammock will significantly outperform against these non-countersunk varieties.
This product includes two sets of 18-inch chain. This provides 1.5 feet of hanging flexibility on either side of your hammock, allowing you greater flexibility when choosing where to hang your hammock. We also include two tree hooks with this hammock, if you have a frame or pair of trees 13-16 ft. apart, this hammock is ready to install right out of the box. No additional purchase necessary.
**Stand and tree straps sold separately.
