My trip to DRT Bulacan got me excited because aside from it being my first waterfalls adventure since the pandemic, it’s also my chance to finally try my Sangga hammock (Ora 11) outdoors. I’ve already slept on it indoors but the best way to get to know a hammock is hanging it under the mercy of the elements like the sun, wind and rain. I shifted from tent to hammocks on my camping trips since 2017 because of the numerous benefits of hammock camping. Testing and sharing my review of different local hammocks is my way to spread awareness about hammocks, while supporting local brands at the same time.
My Sangga Ora 11 Hammock Package
The hammock I’m going to review in this post is Sangga Outdoor‘s Ora 11, a lightweight single-ply hammock complete with bug net and suspension system. The base package costing 1,135Php includes a pair of 3-meter black webbing straps respectively connected to the gathered ends of the hammock. An upgraded package, which is what we are reviewing here, with friction rings for an easier suspension system is available at 1,385Php.
There are other variations offered by Sangga Outdoors such as cocoon-type and ultralight hammocks but since I hate mosquitoes, I picked Ora 11 with bug net. Made from parachute nylon fabric and measuring 9.5 ft x 5ft, Ora 11 weighs only 800grams, which is pretty lightweight for a complete hammock system.
