Among the number of hammocks I’ve used for four years of hang-camping in the Philippines, Lazy HitchHiker is the first cocoon-type that I owned. I’ve mostly utilized ones with bug-net so when I received my new hammock, I was excited to test it out! Camping with it in Singalong Nature Campsite Hill and Kaliraya Surf Camp, as well as sleeping on it in my own bedroom for 2 weeks give me enough experience to review it. If you’re curious if this quite popular hammock is worth the hype, then read on!
My Lazy HitchHiker Cocoon Hammock Package
In my experience, it only took 2 days for the hammock to arrive after it was shipped. They have Single (10ft x 5ft) and Wide (10ft x 6.5ft) sizes which cost Php1,100 and Php1,300 respectively, already including a complete suspension system, i.e, 3-meter long 1-inch wide webbing straps, steel carabiners, braided cords, and a compression bag. I got the Wide Cocoon Billabong design with upgraded alloy carabiners (+Php200) and Lazy Tree Hugger (+Php 400).
My package, which included a thick fabric material weighed a total of 1.5kg which is great for car or bike-camping trips but I would bring a lighter hammock for hiking or multi-day backpacking trips. There are variations to the fabric which reduces the weight. Fine weighs around 0.8 to 1kg, while fair weighs 1 – 1.3kg.
