The Wise Owl hammock makes a great addition to your survival kit because it is affordable yet extremely versatile. Its main function is to create a shelter for lying inside, but you can also improvise and use it as a backpack, emergency food cache, fishing net, gear drag or litter. If worse comes to worse you can use it as clothing.
One good thing about this hammock is that it comes with tree straps for convenience. They make it easy for you to suspend the hammock on tree branches without having to tie knots. That’s perfect for those who are not familiar with knots. Plus they are very sturdy and add some stability to the hammock’s strength, balance and overall safety.
But it is not the only good thing about the Wise Owl hammock, here are some of its noteworthy features:
400-pound maximum weight
The material used to make the Wise Owl hammock is 210T nylon, the same material used in making parachutes. It is a heavy-duty and strong type of nylon that is also pretty soft on your skin.
The various pieces are stitched together using triple interlocking stitches for maximum strength. Those two factors (strong material and superior stitching) are the reason why this hammock can support up to 400 pounds of weight.
You may want to know that the material is breathable and can be used in all the seasons, including the summer.
Option for single or double
You can either choose the SingleOwl (for one person) or the DoubleOwl (for two people). The SingleOwl measures 9 by 4.5 feet while the DoubleOwl measures 10 by 6.5 feet.
It makes more sense to purchase the DoubleOwl if you have survival in mind because it can accommodate more people within a smaller space (compared to having two single hammocks).
The SingleOwl weighs 16 oz. and reduces to the size of a 5 by 5 inch grapefruit when packed. On the other hand, the DoubleOwl weighs 26 oz. and packs down to the size of a 5 by 8 eggplant.
Regardless of which one you choose, you can bet that it will be very easy to fit in your bug-out bag.
This hammock comes with everything you need to set it up and use.
Apart from the hammock itself, you also get:
- a built-in drawstring stuff sack for storage
- two D-shaped steel carabiners that lock
- and two 8-foot ropes for hanging the hammock
The ropes can support up to 400 pounds of weight. That is basically everything you need to hang this hammock and enjoy some laid-back moments.
The Wise Owl hammock is one of the most affordable in the market today despite its very high quality construction and versatility. The manufacturer also offers a lifetime warranty, which makes it a great deal.
