The length of your hammock is possibly one of the most important factors in determining a comfortable night’s sleep. We have different hammock models available in 10ft, 11ft, and 12ft lengths.Generally speaking, a longer hammock will tend to lay slightly flatter and have less “shoulder squeeze” so if you are in doubt, we recommend you go to the longer size. Going slightly to long rarely causes any issues, but going too short can cause comfort problems.
A good starting point…
Of course comfort is a very subjective and personal thing, but the chart below may give you a rough idea of where you should start.
5′ 7″ or shorter – 10′ x 58-60″
5′ 8″ to 6′ – 10′ x 62-66″ or 11′ x 58-60″
6′ to 6′ 3″ – 11′ x 62-72″
6′ 4″ and taller – 12′ x 72-74″
