A good hammock offers more than just a place to nod off in the woods. Science shows adults fall asleep faster and sleep deeper when suspended in the air, gently rocking to and fro. The hammock comes with quite a history, too: Early iterations protected Native Americans in the West Indies from poisonous critters on the ground; for hundreds of years, sailors in the British Navy used hammocks as hanging cots; Apollo-era lunar modules were equipped with them so astronauts could sleep between moonwalks. Lately, the hammock has taken on a new dimension of utility: Campaign versions offer a free-floating, ultralight shelter on the go. And new design innovations make it easier for you to lie flat or sleep comfortable on your side. Consider any of these options for your next hanging home.
