The Ultimate Hang 2 is the best book to learn the ins and outs of hammock camping. With more than 300 illustrations to guide you, this book helps you get off the ground to discover the freedom, comfort, and convenience of hammock camping. Learn how to set up and use a hammock to stay dry, warm, and bug free in a Leave-No-Trace way. It covers everything from understanding the gear, choosing a hammock, site selection, and hanging safely, along with setting up a hammock indoors.

The 2nd edition has been completely re-written with all-new sections on hammock FAQs and basics for new hangers, an expanded advanced section for veterans, plus a DIY section to get you started making your own hammock gear. The book is a whopping 344 pages littered with hundreds of illustrations and tips you won’t find in the first edition. Throughout the book you’ll also find tables and charts comparing hammocks and gear to help make decisions a little easier. 

I already have the first edition, should I get the second? In a word, yes! The second edition doesn’t just update the first edition, it has been completely overhauled and expanded from the ground up. If the first edition was a treatise on hammocks, the second edition is the encyclopedia.

All the best tips and techniques on hammock camping in one place.
