Hammocks are everywhere now.
You’re looking to hop on the bandwagon.
But there’s some pricey one’s out there.
Look no farther than the Fox Outfitters Double to get you started.
It’s a great budget starter hammock for those new into the game.
If you’re looking to get more into the details continue on to the rest of our review of the Fox Outfitters Hammocks.
And most importantly it’s a comfortable one unlike some of the competitors.

Now I know what you’re thinking, get your mind out of the gutter.
I’m talking about the length of the hammock you silly goose.
If you’ve read any of my other hammock reviews or comparisons then you’re well aware about how important the length of your hammock is.
But for those of you that are new here it is the single most important feature a hammock can have to help you be comfortable laying in it.
Of course the next thing is to make sure you’re laying in the hammock properly, that’s a story for another day though.
Anyways back to the topic at hand – the size of the hammock.
Width is not nearly as important when it comes to comfort.
The reason I say that is because if it’s longer then it’s possible to get a flatter lay in the hammock which is more comfortable.
Where as width doesn’t assist in that as much as length does.
The Double is 10 feet 6 inches long and 6 feet 6 inches wide, and the Single is the same length but 5 feet wide.
Now this is also very important.
I personally know people that have ripped their hammock because the weight limit was low and the wear and tear on the hammock from using it.
But with either one of the Fox Outfitters hammocks most people will not have to worry about that.
The weight limit on both of these hammocks is 400lbs.
You watched that video above right?
Everything you see in that video is included with the hammock.
There’s nearly every color under the sun available on Amazon.
Grey/Orange? They’ve got it.
Sky Blue/Grey? You betchya.
So whatever color combination you want you should have no problem finding it.
It comes with everything you need to hang the hammock from a couple trees. Just like they showed in the video.
Which includes rope sleeves to protect the trees you’re hanging from.
If you ask me that’s a big deal, but these aren’t the highest quality.
Also another nice thing these hammocks have is an attached stuff sack.
These are especially nice when you’re relaxing in the hammock and are looking for a place to put your phone, keys, or whatever else you have in your pockets.
There are three, and they’re pretty minor.
The suspension system you get with the hammock isn’t the highest quality. So it might be worth replacing with another higher quality one.
And yes the hammock is longer than most, but for me being 5’11” it’s still a little short if I’m going to be sleeping in it overnight. I prefer my hammocks to be 11’ or longer.
The reviews on Amazon are for the most part glowing, but there are enough pointing out that the hammock starts to fray after a while to worry me.
Now when it comes to comparing the two hammocks Fox Outfitter offers, I’m definitely going to recommend the Double Hammock.
Now as far as my review of the Fox Outfitters Double Hammcok I’m going to recommend it for lounging.
But even then be careful.
When I started writing this I was very excited about this hammock, but after seeing the handful of reviews saying it frays I’m worried. Especially since I’m a bigger guy.
