The Mayan hammock is considered by many to be the most comfortable of all the hammocks. It is produced from a tightly woven cord that conforms to your body while still providing an excellent amount of support. Because of this tight weave, it doesn’t leave marks on your body when you use it for an extended period of time. Though they are tightly woven, they still provide enough air flow to keep you cool. As with most non-spreader bar hammocks, Mayan Hammocks are relatively light weight and very strong which makes them a great choice for camping. They are easy to pack up, transport and set up and they take up very little space to store.
These hammocks can be composed of cotton or polyester. The cotton version is considered to be the top as far as comfort goes, but the natural cotton fibers are much more susceptible to damage from the elements as well as damage from zippers, buttons, etc. The polyester hammocks provide a soft, comfortable bed which is much less affected by the weather. Both types are available in a variety of colors.
