About Teton Hammock Company
Welcome to Teton Hammock Company
At the Teton Hammock Company we strive to engineer and build the highest quality hammock gear available. Our goal is to create hammock gear that will perform to the highest degree and in the harshest of weather conditions.
The Teton Hammock Company was founded by Marc Bohman, a 30+ year veteran backpacker and hiker.
After reaching that magical age , when wisdom and experience began to win out over the conventional thought that sleeping on the ground in a tent was the only way to camp, Marc was introduced to his first “new style” parachute hammock.
Being a gear-hound, Marc knew he had to have one. If for no other reason than it was just “cool”!
After sleeping in the hammock for the first time in the Grand Tetons, Marc knew that hammock camping was a far superior way to camp.
Our Hammock Gear
All gear built by the Teton Hammock Company is engineered, built and tested to perform in the harsh, high-altitude conditions of the Teton Mountain Range.
Unlike other parts of the country, our snow and rain does not necessarily fall straight down. More times than not, we find our precipitation “falling” horizontally, and at great velocity. Because of this, all of our gear has extra reinforcements at crucial points, double and triple stitched seams. With extra insulation all while keeping our weights comparable to other cottage manufacturers’ specs.
We use only the finest materials and fabrics including HyperD ripstop, Gutermann thread, and water-resistant HyperDRY down in both 850fp and 950fp.
