My local hammock has to be my favorite item to bring during my adventures! I even consider it my “reliable travel buddy” simply because of the amazing benefits of hammock camping, which I enumerated in my previous post. If you have read it and you’re convinced that you need one, then read on to find out where to get one!
My First Local Hammock
My first local hammock was an unbranded second-hand for 300Php only. It was a simple double-layered gathered-end hammock; and it didn’t even have a proper tree hugger strap but it was good enough for beach camping. My cheap hammock has gone to Abra, Balabac, Siargao among other destinations I’ve been to! It got me addicted to hammocks so I decided to upgrade to a locally-made hammock with a bug-net or mesh so I don’t have to be bothered by mosquitoes at night.
Local Hammock Brands in the Philippines
While there are more expensive imported hammocks such as Eagle Nest Outfitters and Hennessy, locally-made hammocks in the Philippines are good-quality and unique in design. I got one from a local supplier and it’s still in perfect condition after two years! So if you’re looking for a hammock that will be your “travel buddy” on your next trips, check out the list below!

Final Considerations When Buying a Local Hammock
After bombarding you with different local hammock seller options, let me leave you with this tip: let the price be your LAST consideration when choosing. My friend bought a Decathlon hammock for around P700 only but it’s already torn due to frequent use. Instead, decide based on the quality and the type of adventurer that you are.
If you are a single lady, then you don’t really need the bigger-sized hammocks as it will add more weight to your pack. If you usually travel with your partner, then a bigger non-cocoon type might suit you.
Are you a stargazer? Then the net-type may be better for you so you can fall asleep while stargazing without being eaten by mosquitoes. But if you only care about sleeping at night, then cocoon-type will be fine.
Do you need the tarp? For me yes especially outside summer! You can DIY your own tarp, or save time and effort, and support our local brands! I did both and preferred the latter 🙂
If you still can’t decide which one to get, best to ask other hammock-hangers! You can join our Hammock Camping FB Group.
Finally, if you’re a local hammock weaver and you would like to be included in this list, just send us a message. 😉
