17 Sierra Gears’ new A-TACS FG double layer hammock is built tough for the serious outdoor enthusiast. The outer layer is built from 1.9 oz genuine A-TACS FG Camo ripstop nylon. The inner layer is 1 oz Dark Olive HyperD ripstop nylon. HyperD is a lightweight diamond grid ripstop nylon. Designed for superior performance and feel compared to standard square grid ripstop, HyperD is both stronger and softer with a unique look and feel.
The hammock has openings on each side on opposite ends to accommodate a sleeping pad. Having a sleeping pad between the layers as opposed to on top will keep the pad from sliding around as you sleep.
Double layer hammocks come with a structural ridgeline installed. This will ensure your hammock hangs at the perfect angle for maximum comfort. The included suspension system is composed of two 12 ft tree straps and a stainless steel buckle to easily adjust the length of the straps. Everything you need to hang your hammock comes in a A-TACS FG Camo stuff sack that is slightly larger than the size of a Nalgene bottle.

New A-TACS iX Camo is intended to be the centerpiece in our “X” line of camo with additional running changes planned for our AU, FG and LE Camo patterns in the coming years to bring them all into the upgraded “X” line.
