Most of us associate hammocks with comfort and rightfully so. Although there are many solutions for those of us who are looking to spend quality time in nature, we all hate sleeping on the cold, hard ground. By using a hammock, on the other hand, we keep ourselves away from the discomfort of the ground underneath while still experiencing the joy of resting in mother nature’s bosom.
This being said, there is a wide variety of hammocks to choose from, some more comfortable than others. Not only that, but some are very difficult to set up and carry around, which is why people seem to prefer foldable hammocks over ones with solid frames.
