Wise Owl Outfitters Hammocks support 500 lbs. This weight is tested as force weight. When sudden force is put on a hammock or straps the weight can be exponentially higher than just sitting or laying weight. If you just place items, people etc... in a hammock, or on the end of straps you can put a much higher weight than even 500 lbs, although we want to make sure that our customers are safe and do not over do it so we put the weight at 500 lbs.

For the stand, you just want to get one that is approximately the correct length. There is not necessarily one that we would recommend over another. The single hammock is 9 1/2 ft long and the double is 10 ft long so any stand that is probably minimally 10 feet across would work great since they will not be pulled completely tight. It should also say on the listing how long of a hammock it will work with. Just look for one with a lot of reviews and a good star rating :)

Made from aircraft grade aluminum and can withstand up to 2967 lbs. of force. Although we want to make sure that our customers are safe and do not over do it so we put the weight at 500 lbs.  They are heavy duty with each one weighing 2.2oz.

Thank you so much for your interest in our awesome Ultralight Camping Hammock. The Hammock is 6.5 ounces. The Carabiners (2) weigh a combined 1.5 ounces. The straps (2) weigh a combined 7.5 ounces. Total weight for the complete set up of hammock, straps and carabiners totals only 15.5 ounces. Hope this helps!

We have many customers who install them in their households all the time.  In truth, hammocks have been used by humans for more than a thousand years and have been put to use by millions as full time beds. In many places, people easily go their entire lives without sleeping anywhere but a hammock. You should try it for yourself first to see if this is a good fit for you.

Yes! You can absolutely wash your hammock. It would be best to remove the carabiners first so that you do not damage your washer. Then add a very small amount of soap and wash it by itself on a gentle cycle with cold water. Hang to dry.

Try laying at a diagonal angle, not laying straight inside of it. If you lay directly in the middle, it will cocoon you. The hammock should not be pulled tight. Make sure you have a little bit of slack in your hammock so you can get in and out.

Thank you for asking. Just like our compact Wise Owl Hammocks, our Talon Tree Straps as well pack down small to only 5x5x2 inches.
