What Is a Double Hammock?

Simply put, a double hammock is one that's large enough for two. We think it's a serious must-have for couples, since there's not much that's more magical than laying together under the sun or under the stars (and away from wet grass and bugs).

There are different hammocks to consider depending on what you're looking for as a couple. Hitting the trails? A camping hammock or a travel hammock should both be lightweight and easy to pack and stow. Just looking for something to add to your backyard? You can choose to attach it to a tree or opt for a two person hammock with a stand for added stability and freedom to place it wherever you want in your yard. Aesthetically, a woven rope hammock is classic, but you may choose a hammock made from waterproof material or simply a more luxurious fabric depending on your tastes.

The Best 2-Person Standing Hammock

This fabric hammock with a frame makes a great choice for people looking for a hammock for their yard rather than for travel.

Standout features:

  • Comes in tons of colors and patterns to match any backyard decor
  • Super plush, waterproof fabric
  • Quick, tool-free assembly

    Weight capacity: 440 pounds

    Looking to add a quality, durable two-person hammock to your backyard? Look no further than this model. The first thing that struck us about this hammock is how comfortable it looks. It has a woven base like a double rope hammock would, but it also comes with an ultra-plush hammock pan and included pillow that makes it so you and your sweetheart can lounge for hours without getting crushed. The macrame at each end of the hammock helps with that, too. The cotton thread is sturdy enough to hold you both aloft, but the way in which it's woven together will help the hammock lay flat like you're on an outdoor bed, so you and your partner won't both tumble to the center because the sides won't stay down. Plus, the spreader bar base is lightweight and easy to assemble sans tools, but still structurally sound to give you years and years of hammock bliss.

    The Best 2-Person Tree Hammock

    A tree hammock is a convenient way to create a peaceful place to rest in your backyard. While some are better suited to camping, this one is a bit more heavy duty, making it an ideal choice for the home.

    Standout features:

    • Premium, hand-spun cotton fabric is breathable and luxurious
    • Includes a carrying bag for storage in harsh weather conditions
    • Chic, minimalist style that will blend with every backyard aesthetic

      Weight capacity: 475 pounds

      A tree hammock is a double hanging hammock that is meant to be strung between two trees. While many avid campers choose to snooze this way, it's a fun feature for a backyard as well. Head to your double hammock to read books together, enjoy the stars at night or simply take a nap a deux. This 2-person tree hammock is a great pick for residential use. While it's not weatherproof (you'll have to store it in harsh weather conditions), its super-soft, thick brushed cotton fabric feels supremely luxurious and it boasts plenty of room for pillows and blankets to really make it a lofty oasis. Bonus: The simple, quality fabric makes it look luxurious, like it could be at a fancy beach resort.

      The Best 2-Person Camping Hammock

      What's more romantic than heading out on a camping trip together? Snuggling up in a camping hammock for two, of course! The best 2-person camping hammock will be lightweight with plenty of room for both of you.

      ENO DoubleNest Hammock

      Couple relaxes on a hammock near a river.

      Standout features:

      • Packs up to 6 x 5 x 5 inches for easy transport
      • Extended 9.5-foot size provides plenty of room to stretch
      • Made from quick-drying, soft fabric with triple-reinforced seams

        Weight capacity: 400 pounds

        We came for the fun color combos, but stayed for the high-quality construction. For something that's meant to be a place to crash while you're roughing it outdoors, it's super comfy. The fabric is treated with a special crinkle technique to make it softer to the touch, while the seams are triple-reinforced so you can rest easy knowing you and your love won't break through the bottom. This hammock for two boasts one of the most comfortable sleeping experiences you can find, with plenty of room for both of you and a generous 400 pound weight limit. It's easy to hang to boot, just note the straps are sold separately. The overall total is still reasonably priced, though.

        The Best 2-Person Travel Hammock

        A travel hammock should be portable, easy to pack and preferably lightweight. If you and your babe are hoping to hit the road with a hammock, here's the one you'll want to take a look at.

        Kootek Double Hammock

        Couple relaxes on an outdoor hammock.

        Standout features:

        • Comes with a handy carrying case and is simple to pack up
        • Made from super-strong nylon—the same used in parachutes
        • Comes in a variety of colors

        Weight capacity: 500 pounds

          The versatile Kootek is a crowd favorite, if only for its impressive, but simple features. We chose the Kootek as the best 2 person hammock for travel thanks to the ease in which it can be folded into its accompanying storage bag (which also doubles as a sizable pocket when the hammock is in use). Simply stow it in the bag and toss it into a suitcase and you're good to go. The hammock comes with everything you'll need to hang it—including straps and carabiner clips—at a super affordable price point. Choose from 14 attractive colors.

          The Best 2-Person Hammock Chair

          No porch swing? No problem! Consider this 2-person hammock chair for a relaxing experience at home. Plus, they'll make a pretty statement on your patio.

          Lambgier Hanging Egg Chair with Stand

          Sleek double hammock chair.

          Standout features:

          • Intricate rattan construction
          • Super plush, luxurious cushions ergonomically shaped for back support
          • Perfect bohemian aesthetic

          Weight capacity: 550 pounds

            If a traditional hammock isn't your speed, but you're looking for a relaxing way to swing in your own backyard, this 2-person hammock chair could be the answer you're looking for. The egg-shaped swing is suspended atop a steel frame by a heavy chain, providing peaceful gliding motions. Plush pillows and a 550-pound weight capacity ensure both of you are equally comfortable, plus the back cushion is ergonomic to provide the best back support. And can we just talk about how beautiful the design is? It reminds us of a resort in Bali. Since this option is a bit splurgy, we also love this option that's lower-priced and also highly rated. It would be a romantic gift to surprise your partner with, too.
