Classic Hammock - Anyoo

One of the best classic hammocks is the one made by Anyoo. It is a model that needs external support to be used but, once you have found the right positioning, comfort is guaranteed. Perfect in the garden, but also on the beach and when hiking, thanks to a very resistant canvas and a structure capable of supporting a weight of up to 200kg.

Available in many colors, it is also equipped with 2 comfortable cushions that improve comfort. Another advantage of this model is that it can already be positioned at a height of about 80 cm, since it is always stretched by the firmly integrated wooden bars. However, we must not forget that it is still a classic hammock, which needs an external support such as a tree or a pole to hang it.

Classic hammock - Glymnis

Another classic hammock that deserves to be considered, especially for those who prefer to sit in 2, is the one produced by Glymnis. Also available in many colors, it boasts a load capacity of 300kg and is equipped with a very practical transport bag, useful for storing your items, smartphones, keys or the same friend. Excellent quality of the fabric, which is made of 210T nylon in ripla seam, perfect for ensuring maximum resistance. A hammock, therefore, safe and easy to use, as well as to carry.

Classic hammock - Easy Eagle

Even if the Easy Eagle's solution has more or less the same characteristics as the previous models, we believe that its build quality deserves to be reported and, consequently, include this garden hammock among the main models to be taken into consideration. The dimensions of this model are 220 x 120cm and, of course, it is equipped with everything you need so that you can mount it right away. As you may have guessed, it comes in a classic hammock, that is, without a support base, therefore suitable for those who prefer to hang it from trees, on the veranda or in your yard. As for the maximum weight supported, the Easy Eagle model can hold a load of 300kg.

Freestanding hammock - Vivere UHSDO8-00

If you have no way of hanging the hammock on an external support, then you must take into consideration the self-supporting hammocks which, unlike the models mentioned above, boast a support integrated into the structure that will allow you to position it wherever you want. Usually, they have a slightly higher cost, but justified by the presence of a support designed to keep the hammock firmly on the surface. Among these, the Vivere UHSDO8-00 is certainly one of the best, since it can hold 200kg and is made of high quality dense cotton fabric.

Self-supporting hammock - Living C8SPCT-00

What distinguishes this hammock from the others is the presence of a base made entirely of solid pine which gives it an elegant design, as well as unparalleled strength . The price is much higher than the other models, but if you want a hammock that makes a difference in your garden, this is the most suitable model.

Freestanding Hammock - Amazon Basics

Another freestanding model worth mentioning comes directly from Amazon Basics. It's not very expensive, but it still boasts a structure that can hold 2 people, as long as they don't weigh too much. Thanks to the bag included in the package, it will be easy to carry, as well as it will be easy to assemble it since you will not need any other tools. The high quality fabric completes what is an excellent hammock to spend unforgettable moments of relaxation.

How to choose a garden hammock

Garden hammocks are rather simple items and do not have any electrical components, so there are very few factors that determine whether a model is valid or not, as well as whether it is suitable for your needs. The factors to be taken into consideration during the purchase are therefore essentially 2; the type and maximum capacity.


As mentioned in the initial stages, garden hammocks are divided into self-supporting and classic ones. The differences between one and the other are considerable, so it is important to know which type to consider, in order to avoid finding yourself with an unsuitable model.

As the word implies, self-supporting hammocks are those that integrate a structure, which will allow the cloth to be positioned on the sides of the latter. In addition, the presence of a support will ensure that you can place the hammock anywhere you want, since it will not be necessary to hang it from a tree or pole, as is the case with classic models. This feature makes these models ideal for those who know they do not have suitable supports nearby or, simply, for those who prefer to have the freedom to place it wherever they want.

As you may have already guessed, classic hammocks need a support outside in order to hang them. This means that not everyone can benefit from it, but if you have the possibility to install one, you can save several tens of euros, since the latter have a lower cost than self-supporting models.

Maximum capacity

Since garden hammocks have the task of supporting you, knowing what the maximum weight capacity of a specific model is is essential, in order to avoid sinking to the ground and getting hurt. In this regard, our advice is to take your weight into account and choose a hammock that supports a slightly higher weight, although the higher the better, of course. This precaution is important to consider, also because the hammock often tends to swing and this could cause it to break, if the weight is at the limit.
