So you’re heading out to enjoy Mother Nature and looking to leave the tent at home. Great decision, but don’t leave home without durable camping hammock.
The Switchback 1.9 Double Layer Hammock is exactly what you need. Both durable and versatile, this hammock has so much to offer.
The hammock itself is constructed with 1.9 oz. square yard ripstop nylon with a DWR finish. The end of the Switchback include a sewn-in channel that’s been triple stitched for strength and longevity. In other words, we’re not messing around.
Nobody wants to deal with a bug problem, so when bugs try to ruin the experience, all yo need to do is zip up the net. You can tie the net out of the way to increase ventilation and get a clear view of the stars. This feature also allows use of the Tree to Tree Gear PeaPod and PolarPod.
The bug net is made of noseeum and has two dual tab sliders with corded pulls on each side. This setup allows entry or exit from either side. The bug net also features two suspension points for the shock cords and has 4 outside loops on both ends allowing use of, if desired, spreader bars (not included, see our “how to” pages) that give the most interior space and headroom.
The Switchback includes (2) 10″ x 12″ storage bags made from noseeum. The bags can hold a water bottle, flashlight, books, etc. Also included are (2) sewn-in D rings for the attachment of a pillow or clothes bag.
Our taffeta liner is very comfortable against the skin and provides a pocket for a pad of your choice.
Tie Out Points
There are four tie out points strategically placed to maximize interior space. The tie out points at the L shoulder & R ankle accentuate the diagonal lay and the other two will open up the hammock completely. They also act as anchor points for the PolarPod, ensuring perfect placement every time. They also work with many underquilts on the market today. The tie out points are also used when the hammock is set up in “ground mode”.

We highly recommend Tree to Tree’s Ring Buckle Assembly & Tree Straps. The Ring Buckle Assembly was designed for their hammocks, cinching the channel ends perfectly and providing strength & durability. It also functions as end anchor points when set up in “ground mode”. Our Tree Straps are a perfect compliment to the Ring Buckles and are available in three different lengths.
