DD Hammocks is a company based in Eginburg, Great Britain, founded by Nick Vansittart. The company’s products are distributed worldwide and are used, for example, in some bushcraft schools, jungle training organizations and TV survival programs.
Nick has traveled around the world many times over several months. While traveling and camping closer to home in Scotland, Nick discovered a hammock that weighed a fraction of the weight of a tent and was a fraction of its pack size. It was an ideal solution for light travel, hiking and camping and also more comfortable than a tent.
Since then, Nick has tried and tested many different hammocks. He wanted to incorporate basic camping features such as wind and bug protection, while remaining light, compact, comfortable and affordable. There was no such hammock on the market, so Nick created his own – the Camping Hammock – and his DD Hammocks. Based on this, Nick created his Hammock brand in 2005.
