Hammocking. Not the best for sleeping, but great for pulling up to the woods and reading. Will do for sleeping but if you want to camp in a hammock often not the best choice.

It's spacious and gives you the option of hanging with the trees solo or with another person as well! It packs super well and is light weight giving you plenty of extra space in your bag for other goodies like snacks and a good book to read.

Easy to pack and light weight, a hammock can help you better enjoy the journey. Sometimes a place to kick your feet up, pause or read a book can be a way to rejuvenate your energy. It can also be the highlight of your entire trip. Hammocks make for a nice sleeping option too.
