What is the difference between a spreader bar hammock and one without a spreader bar?
The beautiful Nicamaka Terracotta Hammock above is a spreader bar hammock. Spreader bars on a hammock allow the surface where you lay to remain taut so you won’t be “closed in” by the fabric. (Spreader bar hammocks are very popular with sun worshippers, as the fabric won’t cast a shadow on the skin). Spreader bar hammocks should be used with a hammock stand or suspended tautly between trees or posts for the most comfort — and less risk of tipping over.
The lovely Nicamaka Family Hammock in the "Home for the Holidays" photo above has no spreader bar. Hammocks without spreader bars are kept open by the person or persons occupying it — with the hammock conforming to the body or bodies inside. Cozy? Yes.
