Editorial Reviews

Adam Hurst
Simply amazing! If you are new to hammock camping, already love hammock camping, or just simply want to spread the word, this book is a must have.
Jack Myers
A fast, interesting, and excellent read. The illustrations really add to both reading enjoyment and clarity. Hammock camping has steadily evolved over the last decade as a comfortable, sustainable, low impact camping lifestyle. The Ultimate Hang will enhance the hammock hanging experience of novice and veteran hangers alike.
Sean Emery
If you want to invigorate your backpacking experience and sleep consistently in or on any terrain the this book will give you all the gathered intel on the wonders of hanging cradled in comfort. Hammock camping is a former tarp only campers dream. Hammock camping has a learning curve and is not for everyone....but if you are ready for a new level of wonder in the backwoods then this book will be you guide. It is a truly a right goodie!
Stuart Raike
Finally, a modern-day, comprehensive resource on all aspects of hammock camping. The lighthearted illustrations along with excellent explanations make for a quick and enjoyable read. Every current and future hammock user should have this on their bookshelf.

    Great for the Beginner!

    I found this book while looking into moving from ultralight backpacking to hammock backpacking. There is so much information in this little book that it is mind boggling. Derek's illustrations are great, and really help the reader understand what he is writing about. Everything form what to bring, options on how to hang, stay dry, warm, safe, are in this book. I'm so glad I found this as I was getting started as a hanger. Definitely saved myself a lot of confusion. Check this book out if you have ever even thought of trying a backpacking hammock. Maybe you will be a convert too!

    Great Hammock Advice

    I've been hanging for a little while now and thought I knew everything I needed to know about hammocks but this book explained everything about being comfortable in my hammock. The section on suspension was particularly enlightening for me and all the information came with illustrated examples.
