Ultralight hammock suspension system for the weight conscious backpacker.


  • Ultralightweight
  • Competitively priced
  • Fast customer service and shipping


  • A titanium hook on the whoopie sling would be nice

I had been looking into ultralight hammocks and ran across Hummingbird Hammocks who manufactures a series of ultralight hammocks designed by an FAA certified parachute rigger. Being the cheapskate hammock-camping skeptic that I am, I purchased Hummingbird Hammocks Tree Strap system for use with an inexpensive hammock I purchased to give hammocks a try.

Regretfully, I can't review their hammocks however they do appear to be a very nice ultralight options.

The Tree Straps consist of two 60" long/1" wide straps mated to 40" Spectra "whoopie slings". The whoopie slings work like a Chinese Finger Torture device, cinching down on itself with increasing pressure as it is pulled on by hanging in the hammock. It's a very simple and very lightweight system.



Hummingbird Hammocks claims a weight of 2.1 oz for the pair. Mine weighed 63g or 2.2 oz (but who's counting). 2.1 or 2.2, it's still the lightest adjustable suspension I've found so far and available direct as an easy, off-the-shelf solution.

My only knock is the lack of a connector to the hammock; there is a simple loop at the end of the whoopie sling. There are very tiny titanium hooks available that could be used here.  To Hummingbird's credit, they designed the Tree Straps to work with their hammocks, not some third-party hammock as in my case.
