Whether you’re sleeping under a tarp for a 3-season setup or under open skies around the crags of Mallorca, where there are trees, there’s hammocking potential.
Mora is light, compact, comfy and easy to hang, making it an excellent addition to your lightweight sleeping system or as a lightweight alternative to a sleeping mat. Sleep under the stars in mild weather or pair it with a tarp for a 3-season setup.
The Mora includes a simple but effective suspension system for minimal faffing when you’re setting up and taking down. Simply wrap the tree straps, thread them through the loop and clip to the provided karabiners.
At 300 x 145 cm in size, Mora is big enough for lying diagonally for a comfortable night’s sleep and the 20D nylon fabric feels soft next to your skin and doesn’t rustle as you move. Nylon is also incredibly abrasion resistant and durable with a 150 kg (330 lb) load capacity (all the while being lightweight and packable).
Mora packs down to a tiny Ø7 x 16 cm (including tree straps), weighing 515 g. The hammock itself weighs just 280 g so there’s plenty of scope to sub out the tree straps for a lighter alternative, reducing the weight of your rig.

- Simple to hang: simply wrap and thread the tree straps and clip to the carabiner.
- Durable nylon fabric, 1000D polyester webbing and 6061 Alloy Karabiners for confidence-inspiring durability.

A good-value classic, whether you are just starting out with hammock camping or building on bushcraft skills for longer trips.
The Alpkit Mora Single Sleeper Hammock is still one of the lightest and most practical hammock set-ups. Though lightweight the stitching, fabric and suspension straps are all good quality and robust – critical when you’re going to be trusting your weight to them.
