The Alton Goods Ultralight Hammock is your passport to Sleeping Wild. At only 345 grams, this hammock is lightweight, compact and easy to set up. By combining premium materials such as diamond ripstop nylon, high-tensile polyester and precipitation hardened Aluminium alloy, we have been able to retain maximum strength, robustness and spaciousness whilst creating an ultralight product.
Years of thorough field testing have gone into developing and finessing this product. With an unwavering focus on longevity, durability and simplicity our Ultralight Hammock has become a mainstay for adventurers requiring a reliable, comfortable and lightweight sleeping system.
ROBUST & TEAR RESISTANT: This product upholds our commitment to only produce equipment that is of the highest possible quality. From the highly tear-resistant 70D diamond ripstop nylon, to the high-tensile polyester continuous loops and precipitation-hardened Ultralight Aluminium Carabiners, no corner has been cut in creating this product. Materials have been specifically selected for their unique properties and ability to endure sustained use in unforgiving environments.
ULTRALIGHT & COMPACT: By selecting premium materials, we have been able to retain maximum strength, durability and spaciousness whilst creating a truly ultralight product. The use of high strength-to-weight ratio materials such as ripstop nylon, polyester and 7075 Aluminium alloy, have allowed us to reduce carrying weight to an incredible 345 grams and packing size to only 17 x 10.5 x 10.5 centimetres.
SPACIOUS DESIGN: Despite being a compact and ultralight product, this hammock is flexible and spacious. At 280cm x 146cm there is plenty if room for users of all sizes.
BREATHABLE, SOFT & QUICK DRYING: Our carefully selected diamond grid ripstop nylon is designed for superior performance and feel compared to standard square grid ripstop and non-ripstop nylons. Although it is incredibly durable, it is also highly breathable, quick drying and soft to the touch.
HEAVY-DUTY: With longevity in mind, this hammock has been constructed with heavy-duty seams, triple stitched sides and bar stitching for reinforcement in high-wear areas.
ATTACHED STUFF SACK: The simple and sturdy design comes with an attached stuff sack; complete with an easy to use 2mm Dyneema® drawstring.
SUPERIOR QUALITY: Each hammock has been individually inspected by our team in Australia allowing us to maintain the highest level of quality.

It has been developed by hikers for hikers and tested by our team of experts in Australia in Australian conditions. We are so confident of its capabilities that we offer no questions asked, 3 year guarantee on its build quality and performance.
Please note that to be used correctly, the Ultralight Hammock does require a suspension system.
I received the Alton Goods hammock about 10 days ago, and upon unpacking it marvelled at how light it was. Today finally had a chance to have my first trial run to set it up.
This was my first experience of a hammock (let alone setting one up) but the fixture method made it so easy to set up.
Getting in was simple and the comfort level amazing. I had read about bunching of fabric on other brands, but this hammock exhibited none of that and led to a relaxing afternoon.
At the moment in absence of Alton Goods tarp I'm using an ex-British Army basha (similar to a Australian Army Hootchie), so eagerly await your restocking! :-)
Thanks for the card, personal touch is good. Rgds Sam very keen on the tarp now
Outstanding. This hammock is absolutely awesome, built well, lightweight and strong, it is perfect for all my hiking and hunting sleep system needs. And it's super comfortable as well. I am more than impressed, and would highly recommend it to anyone else looking for a gathered end hammock... Also, the customer service from Alton Goods has been amazing. I sure wish that all customer service reps from other companies were as helpful as they are. Cheers....
Best hammock i have ever had! Screams quality and is the perfect size for me and my self inflating bed.
Just a well made quality product, can't think of any cons besides not buying it sooner, bloody good bit of kit.
Love the gear! Took it out to Kitty’s Gorge in WA over the weekend. So easy to set up and have had plenty of interest from mates who liked the look and practicality of the hammock. The colourway (forest green) is awesome too. Tarp and bug net is next on the list - maybe a grill as well. Cheers guys!

Review is for Alton ultralight hammock, polyester sleep straps, bug net. Full disclosure, this is my first hammock camping experience so I can't compare with other brands.
Wow, what a gamechanger!
Weight and space is hugely important if you're trekking or even motorcycle camping (as we were) and I was amazed by how comfortable sleeping in a hammock can be. It's easily equally, if not more, comfortable than most air beds I've slept on and staring up into the nights sky was an unforgettable experience.
For under $120 you're setup is around 1200g (not including my 1500g sleeping bag), when compared with double the weight for a tent and air bed. Plus my camping setup was ready in under 5 minutes.
The only thing I'll note is to make sure you pack extra warm as it does get chilly without the extra insulation!
Amazing product! Can’t go wrong with it.
We recently had two weeks camping and these hammocks were the best place to spend those summer afternoons.
The straps were kind to the trees and very easy to use and store and the hammocks are extremely comfortable.
I offered this products to my boyfriend Nathan for his birthday and here is review: “These products are great! I tried the hammock during a road trip and it look like a really promising product, very easy to build and pack!”
Thank you very much Alton!
Bought as a back up sleeping system but I love it so much that it is now my go to sleeping arrangements
Amazing quality and super comfy. Such an amazing hammock and so easy to just chuck in your backpack when going out for a hike.
Im a big guy (130kg give or take) and i was abit skeptical on how it would hold my weight but no problems at all. Comfy, looks great, super light and tough. Would highly recommend. Great after sales service too

Love the hammock; haven't used it to camp overnight yet but found it to be extremely comfy for an afternoon nap by the beach. If you're using the ropes to tie it, make sure you learn your knots though because otherwise they become very hard to undo. I'll be purchasing the sleep straps and mosquito net next.
Taking a break while cleaning dams out
Absolutely fantastic and easy to use also very strong my partner is very tall and he slept like a baby and was very comfortable.
Testing out the new Alton Goods Hammok before my trip in a few weeks. So stoked with the quality and how easy it is to set up. Next purchase will be the Alton Goods 3x3m tarp to complete the perfect sleep system!
I've used other name brand hammock's over the last few years without knowing about Alton goods. Once I found them I had to support the local Aussie business and find out if their gear was any good!
And this hammock hands down beats any other bush/jungle hammock on the market and the quality is second to none.. The quality starts with the stuff sacks that the hammock/bug net and tarp are all stored in, I couldn't believe the finish and feel of the product before even opening the product..? The hammock/bug net and tarp are built with amazing attention to detail and nothing is spared, all double/tripled stitched using what i can only describe as top grade materials. I cant wait to put this gear through the wringer and take it on all my adventures. I'm so impressed ill be purchasing a second one in the near future.
Thanks Alton good for an amazing Aussie product!
The Ultralight hammock is another great example of Alton Goods high quality craftsmanship and materials, not alot of hammocks out there have such great strength while remaining ultralight. I need the high strength factor because I am not small (120kg) but in this hammock I feel extremely secure. That security is in part due to the amazing UHMWPE sleep straps, these straps are extremely strong and light. The sleep straps roll up so small that I just pop them into the excess room in the top of my ultralight hammock bag. The great thing about all sleep straps is that they don't damage trees, in the picture I have two hammock line set ups, the old rope system and the new UHMWPE sleep strap. You can see that the rope has dug into the bark of the tallowwood, the sleep straps also mean that we can leave no trace around the parks and forests. Sam at Alton Goods has always provided excellent advice and service for me as this is my first hammock and sleep straps, I initially didn't think that they were necessary but I have found them to be more efficient with the set-up. Instead of faffing about tieing and retieing my ropes till I have the right length, all I need to do is pop the hammock caribiner up and down the premade loops. I do think that there could have been more loops, possibly in a higher section of the straps for smaller trees but this is overcome by simply wrapping the straps around the tree more.
All in all these are great products from a great Queensland small business.
As soon as I got my Alton products I wanted to try them out, the pool fence was the only option. But I could tell straight away this was next level to anything I’d used before. Light, compact and superior quality left me extremely happy with this purchase! I can’t wait to go bush again to use the Alton hammock. Dan T
Purchased this as a Christmas present, now I'm going to have to get myself one! Great product and awesome quality!
Not just Alton Good, it's Alton Great!
I bought the new ultralight hammock with the Ultralight UHMWPE Sleep Straps and I'm really chuffed with them both. I'm not a small bloke (pushing 120kg at the moment) and I never feel like I need to be careful in the hammock, I feel super secure even when I'm tossing and turning before I doze off. the sleep straps are so easy to set up and adjust the hammock, I've always used ropes before but now all I have to do is clip the hammock to a new rung on the strap. The sleep straps are also really small and light, I just pop them into the excess room of the hammock bag. The customer service is by far the best of any brand that I've ever dealt with, I had a few questions before the purchase and they were so quick to answer, really helpful and they followed up the purchase with a personal response, they seem to really care about putting out a great product. The Alton Goods products have made a hammock camper out of me so quickly, here in Queensland it can become really stuffy in a swag or tent during the night but with this hammock I get cool gusts of wind underneath me to cool me down. I have been telling everyone about Alton Goods and I don't think I'll stop telling people about their gear anytime soon.
I really enjoy using this hammock, its very light, very easy to setup and makes a great seat, lounge chair, or bed! Great Product!
Really well made piece of kit from this great company, stitching is very well done on the hammock and the straps are super strong and easy to use. Will be buying more gear from these guys !
only just tested setting up the hammock and can already tell its very good quality. Frothing to set this bad boy up in the wild!
I'm so satisfied with my hammock and the Alton Goods brand in general. I'd been looking to get one for a while, and it was well worth the wait. Great quality, light weight, and super strong. There are directions to use the included cords and caribbeaners to hang it, but I'm so glad I got the straps which make it stupid easy to set up. I'm 6'1", 195 lbs, and I'm comfortable on a slant and even straight in line. It scrunches into the bag easily without any folding, and since the bag is attached at the midpoint, it's a super convenient little pocket to put my phone/wallet in while I'm laying. The personal touches in the shipping/packaging were well received and I have so much respect for the company.
Thanks Alton Goods
I was doing some archaeological work in Malta a few weeks ago and decided the Alton Hammock and straps were the perfect set up to rests amongst the pomegranate grove nearby. The shade of the pomegranates gave welcome relief from the 35-45 degree temperatures experienced over the two weeks. I will definitely consider packing this again for local and overseas work. If you are interested in what we were doing over there check out the Maltese media: https://www.tvm.com.mt/en/news/heritage-malta-to-study-fields-close-to-domus-romana/. Sorry I couldn't get the hammock on Maltese TV.
Took my Hammock to Malta this year so I had somewhere to get out of the sun during archaeological fieldwork. Set the hammock up amongst the pomegranate grove that will soon be removed as we extend our excavation trenches into new areas. My colleagues laughed at first, but then recognised how comfortable I was compared to sitting on the rough ground. Will definitely keep the hammock amongst my remote working field kit.
Very high quality, affordable but best of all a local company. What more could you ask for?
My first night out in the hammock was exceptional. I have gone back to the hammock after many years sleeping on the floor and found I had one of the best night sleeps. The hammock does require a mattress or underquilt in cooler weather, but being on the larger size, I found the hammock perfectly suited for myself. It is easy to set up and I recommend getting the tree straps as well.
Done loads of trips with mates never failed me feels amazing to jump in after a hike of a trip !
LOVE this hammock! So does the midge, necessitating we buy a second one. Great for camping, picnics in the park, even hanging it off the hill’s hoist in the back yard. Packs down to nothing, super easy to hang with the sleep straps. Think I’ve got next year’s Xmas list sorted.
Great communication and fast shipping. Will definitely recommend to friends
This is the first hammock that I've owned, and I thought it was going to take a bit to get it set up. I was wrong! It literally took me 60 seconds from opening up the bags to having it sitting pretty. Incredibly comfortable and fits into my hiking bag well. Highly recommend and this will definitely be coming on hikes with me in future!
I bought this hammock for my husband and he LOVES it. Everyone who's seen it has also loved it. I bought it with the straps and it's so easy to put up and down which is really half the battle with a hammock. It's so compact and light that my husband has been carrying it around it in his backpack and takes every opportunity to use it.
Very easily setup hammock, incredibly light weight, makes my zepher tent and sleeping matt feel like dumbells in comparison. Is like sleeping on a cloud. Bag is attached to hammock which is a) great for not loosing the bag and b) great for holding essitentals close by while sleeping. Scrunch up of fold up hammock to get back into bag, not much bigger than open hand when secured back in bag. Highly recommend this product for bush walking, hiking or bush crafting.
Absolutely love my Alton Goods Hammock and Straps!!! They come with me on every holiday. Quality and design have exceeded my expectations in every way, right down to the very last detail. Customer service from Sam and the team was exceptional! Love the hammock and the brand so much that I’ve eneded up buying them as gifts for the whole family.
Absolutely love the hammock and straps! It's been 3 years since first purchasing and the product has held up extremely well despite battling the elements. It's the ultimate lightweight outdoor sleeping kit and has done absolute wonders for my lower back pain by reducing the pressure points.
So 10/10 for comfort, versatility and build quality!
Awesome hammock. Have used on two trips in far nth Queensland, and use all the time at home :) excellent quality.
Quick and easy to set up and pack away. Great quality, love it!!
Excellent hammock, super lightweight and easy to set up. The fabric also breathes pretty well so you won't get sweaty
Use it all the time on the weekend. Great to just relax and read a book.
Alton Goods is fabulous - Quick and easy delivery and beautifully packaged. The product itself is great; lightweight, stylish and the best part is it can truly go up anywhere; removing the ordinary hassle required for hammock hanging. I relax in mine everyday! Couldn't recommend enough!
Everything you want in a hammock. Lightweight. Easy to set up and pack down. Excellent customer service. I’ve noticed I pack this every time we travel. A must have for adventure seekers or even your balcony or in your backyard.
Small, durable, light weight! Perfect for those hiking trips, comes in a range of colours, sleeping in style
My Eucalyptus green Kerouac Hammock is perfect for any outdoor adventure, whether this be a long overnight hike or a trip to the beach. It’s lightweight, strong and sturdy. Won’t venture without it!
Trustworthy, lightweight, comfortable and easy to assemble and pack up... perfect for an active and on the go lifestyle. Bought a hammock six months ago and take it everywhere with me. Delivery was reliable and on time, and beautifully packaged! Personable and friendly customer service. Overall a high quality, practice and affordable product. Would highly recommend to anyone for themselves or as a gift.
Perfect Piece of Kit! I really love my new alton goods hammock and in particular love the versatility of the sleep straps. Highly recommended for both everyday hammocking and out bush camping.
Excellent product! Would recommend to anyone interested in getting outdoors!
Super fast service time, great product, had the opportunity to use it this week and it's met all my expectations.
Never leave Home without it! The Kerouac hammock has been a lifesaver in so many situations wether it's taking a quick kip between jobs or keeping my pack weight down on long hikes into remote camping areas!
Nothing more comfortable than Alton hammock to relax or sleep in after a big hike!
I never leave home without it!

Awesome product. Totally recommend it. Bought it for my brother who went to Japan & Taiwan lately. I figured being so light and easy to setup it be a good gift to travel with, well perfect gift he says - as he's now set it up on his tiny balcony at home so he still feels like he's on holidays.
As someone who does a lot of hammock camping in some remote wilderness areas, having equipment that is strong, reliable, lightweight and easily packable is extremely important. My Alton Goods hammock is just that. Easily one of my favourite pieces of kit.
Cannot be happier with the product. Sturdy, easy to use, great colours... and bonus the service at Alton is amazing!! Such lovely people.
Such a great quality product - Super easy to use and really portable. The team at Alton goods are so passionate and willing to help with any concerns. 5 stars all round!.
Love the Alton Goods hammocks - I've had mine for over two years now and still going strong. Perfect gift for the adventuring soul.
