Tree hammocks will allow users to camp elevated off the ground, which means ground water, insects and snakes are essentially eliminated from interacting with your shelter.
Moreover, with an outdoor hammock the camp-able terrain and topography vastly increase, meaning campers can effectively deploy this shelter on steep slopes, over rocky ground, small streams or gulleys, buttress root jungle floors and many more areas where tents just do not practically work. In the case of camping in a flat field or sand desert environment, the hammock can be deployed on the ground like a standard bivy tent.
Further advantages include less poles than a tent, and zero tent peg and sleeping mattress weight/volume. This all adds up to a lighter load with more rucksack space available for other gear. A camping hammock will also sustain far less damage and retain less moisture than a ground tent. This is because it will rarely be deployed on the ground over sharp objects such as rocks and sticks, and won’t become subject to as much ground water and dew overnight.
In cold climates ground insulation can become an issue, which can be solved with a hammock underquilt (sold separately), or by accumulating a pile of natural ground debris under your hammock (leaves, moss, bark, etc). When sunken in for a sleep this insulation will cocoon the hammock and become incredibly warm.
This particular model of parachute hammock is strong, stable, lightweight and 100% insect proof. Any standard tarpaulin, rain fly or lightweight hoochie can be used to drape over the rigid pole structure to keep your hammock and gear dry.
