How heavy are portable camping hammocks?

Carrying weight of your portable camping hammock

Folding hammocks can weigh as little as two to three pounds. This is including the bug screen, tarp and straps. This lightweight portability gives hammock campers a decided edge over tent hikers in endurance. There is simply no better way to lessen th backpack load that to replace a tent with a camping hammock. You can also put up hammock in a fraction of the time it takes to put up a tent. This additional time means you can enjoy longer hikes on the trail or other camping activities because less time is needed to set up camp.
