  • Why is the Wise Owl Camping Hammock THE Best Seller on Amazon?
Last Updated on April 5, 2021

Wise Owl Hammocks come complete with everything you need to get you going

If you're looking into buy a quality hammock, it's easy to fall into the trap of clicking the Buy Now button on the most popular product without really digging deeper and finding out why it's a best seller. Often a product is a top seller because it's cheap but that doesn't mean it's a great product. 

Wise Owl on the other hand are a top seller and a quality product. Not only do they come with everything so there's nothing extra to buy, these are great value-for-money products. 

In this review, I compare the hammocks in the Wise Owl range, as well as the best option extra accessories you may be interested in. The best part about Wise Owl products is that they are both great value and reasonably priced.

What is Parachute Nylon?

Parachute Nylon (also known as Ripstop Nylon) is a taffeta material, but it's called parachute nylon because of its crinkly appearance that reminds people of parachutes. This is a strong fabric that is quite commonly used for hammocks as it also has a nice texture.

Parachute Nylon is soft, breathable and fast drying.

Wise Owl Hammocks - At a Glance

There's a few different hammocks available by Wise Owl so let's start with all the features they have in common.

All Wise Owl Hammocks have:

  • 210T Parachute Nylon **
  • A set of ready-to-hang 9 ft hammocks straps, and 2 x Carabiners.
  • Straps that come with Triple Interlocking Stitching for Superior Strength
  • A weight capacity of up to 500 lbs (226 kg).
  • A stuff sack that is attached to the hammock.

** Ok, I know I said that was a list of the features that are the same, but I do need to point out that the Ultra Light Hammock is made from 30 Denier 300T Ripstop Nylon. Think of this as the same, but different. 

What are their differences? 

The Hammock Range

There are a few choices when it comes to Wise Owl hammocks.

As well as a Double or Single size, there's one for the kids, and also a ultra-light hammock for when weight and packed-size really matters. 

For the really serious hammock connoisseur, there's one that comes with extra wide 'tree-friendly straps' and a collectable patch.

What are tree-friendly straps?

Tree friendly straps are also known as eco-friendly straps. As these are wider than normal straps, they distribute weight over a wider area and don't dig into the bark of a tree. They protect the tree from abrasion.
