Amok Draumr

Yes, suspension straps are included with all our hammocks. Have a look at this video to see how the suspension straps work: How do the Draumr straps work

Our Draumr hammocks are designed to be used with a suitable inflatable sleeping pad. Together with the hammock the sleeping pad gives the hammock its unique flat lay and needed structure. An underquilt is unnecessary, as the sleeping pad insulates from below and keeps you warm. A pad pocket holds your sleeping pad in place.

  • Bug net: redesigned, higher quality, and extremely durable. 3 sliders are attached and you can open and close the net any way you want
  • Storage: Detachable stuff sack for extra storage inside the hammock
  • Drip stoppers to prevent water from getting into the hammock via the straps
  • Larger foot area, and lower weight than the previous Draumr 4.0
  • Flatness and chair function are similar to Draumr 4.0!

  • Draumr 5.0 and Draumr UL share the same features
  • Draumr UL is made of a much lighter fabric than the Draumr 5.0 and is therefore considered to be an ultralight hammock
  • The maximum weight limit for Draumr 5.0 is 180kg, while it is 120kg for the Draumr UL
  • Draumr 5.0 is made of more robust fabric and will give greater protection against wind and rain. The ultralight fabric in Draumr UL makes is almost see-through, and that is pretty awesome if you ask us;)

  • Weight and packed dimensions: Draumr UL has a lower weight and packs smaller than Draumr 5.0. If this is of importance, you should consider Draumr UL.
  • Durability: Draumr UL is a solid and long-lived hammock. With that being said - the materials in Draumr 5.0 are tougher than on the Draumr UL. If Durability is the only or most important factor for you, we recommend the Draumr 5.0.

In most cases, it's not wear and tear that damages the Draumr. Damage is often caused by accidents with sharp objects, embers from fires, etc. Regardless of which hammock you choose, it is important to be careful and observant when you hang your hammock, and when taking it down.

No, you don´t. The pole set is an optional accessory and is not strictly needed. With that being said, we see that many of our customers choose to buy the pole set for their hammock. The purpose of the pole set is to lift the mosquito net from the head - and foot end, and to create more room inside the hammock. Sticks found at the camp site will work just fine as well, so we’ll leave it up to you to decide if you need them or not.

Have a look at this video to learn how to insert the pole set, and how not to do it: How to insert the pole set

You need to allow for some trial and error, eventually you’ll find the method that works best for you. Here is a video that might guide you in the right direction: How to enter your Draumr hammock

You´ll find several great ideas in the video below. We hope you find the way that works best for you.

How to get in your sleeping bag  

Yes, you can wash your hammock! Clean the hammock with a mild detergent, then hang to dry. You should not put the hammock in a washing machine, nor iron or tumble dry.

You can also refer to the wash label that is attached to the inside of the stuffsack.

Sleeping pads

Yes, all our sleeping pads are perfect for the Draumr hammocks.

Our Long Wide (LW) pads fit our Draumr in standard length, and our XL-pads fit the Draumr XL. Click here to see a video of: Our Fjøl Collection 2021  

If you have a sleeping pad with air baffles running lengthwise, and the measurements are approximately 198x65x9cm / 220x65x9cm (XL), it will be a perfect match for your Draumr hammock.

  • Foam pads or thin inflatable sleeping pads will not work in the Draumr hammocks. Foam pads do not have the needed rigidity and structure. It will be impossible to operate the hammock in chair mode and you will not be able to lay flat.
  • Sleeping pads with air baffles going across, or sleeping pads with air cells are not optimal for the Draumr hammocks. You will most likely experience the head - and/or foot end of the hammock bending downwards, and you will not get the desirable flat lay.
  • We recommend locating leaks using soapy water. Click here to see video on: How to locate and repair leaks in your sleeping pad 
  • Is your leaking pad a Fjøl Winterlight or Fjøl Ultralight pad? Make sure that the black o-ring attached around the valve's cap is fastened properly and that the green flap inside the valve closes properly around the plastic on the inside of the pad before trying to locate other potential leaks. 

The R-value is based on tests done at our factory and a comparison to similar pads made with the same materials and insulation. We will convert our ratings to the new industry standard during the year, which will give us more exact numbers.

Yes, all our sleeping pads can be used in tents or on the ground, as long as you ensure that the sleeping pad is protected against potential harmful objects such as sharp branches, rocks, etc. We recommend using a groundsheet or similar underneath the sleeping pad if used directly on the ground. Remember to dry your pad after every use, and to never store it wet.

Stains from direct contact with hair/skin are not uncommon; it happens to sleeping bags, jackets, etc. as well, over time. You can try cleaning the spot with lukewarm water and some mild detergent (the one you use for wool, for instance), but we can't guarantee it'll completely disappear. Luckily, the pad will work just fine, even with some stains on it. Make sure you let the pad dry completely before packing and storing it.

Tarps

Measurements

The setup is super easy. Take a look at this video to see how we do it: (Video coming soon)

  • The total weight for Skjold 10 UL is 520 g / 18,3 oz. The normal Skjold 10 has a total weight of 655 g/ 23 oz.
  • Skjold UL has a bright blue color (midnight blue), while Skjold 10 comes in Dark Grey and Camo.
  • Both tarps are solid and waterproof and they are manufactured in the same way. Skjold UL is made of a slightly thinner fabric but is nearly as robust as Skjold 10.
  • Make your choice based on weight, packed dimensions, and color.

No, but a good tarp can make or break your camping experience. A tarp can shelter you from all kinds of weather. The tarp will help you protect your hammock and other gear when it's raining, it can create shelter from the wind or a cooling shade in hot summer weather. Our Skjold 10 tarp is a big tarp (approx. 10m2) that is compatible with all of our hammocks.

The tarp comes with a suspension system, guy lines, and tarp stakes. Seam sealer is also included if you need to seam seal your tarp.

  • Seam sealer must dry for several hours and is a process the factory we use does not offer.
  • Our Skjold 10 tarp is made with a silicone-based material, the strongest and the best material available. Unfortunately, leakage through seams on tarps made of such textiles can occur.
  • Skjold 10 comes with a seam sealing kit that you can use to seal the seam. Your tarp will be 100% waterproof!

Yes, it is! Skjold 10 is 30% larger than the previous Skjold tarp, and the coverage is approximately 10m2.

Choosing a tarp is somewhat based on individual needs and what kind of weather conditions you expect. With that being said, for our Draumr hammocks, we do not recommend a tarp shorter than 350cm (from head to toe) and 250cm (along the ridgeline). The dimensions of our newest tarps, Skjold 10 and Skjold UL, is 380 x 300 cm. The bigger tarp is a result of feedback from customers and our own experiences when camping.

Segl XL

Yes, absolutely! Lay diagonally in your Segl XL hammock for a flatter lay.

Take your camping experience in Segl XL to the next level:

  • Consider purchasing a suitable bug net
  • Insulate with an under quilt or a sleeping pad

Segl XL is perfect for a short trip in the woods, or for relaxing at home in your garden. Click here to see a video of our: Segl XL 

We do not make our own bug nets for Segl XL. You will find different models out there which will fit the Segl XL hammock, just make sure the bug net is long enough (minimum 3 meters). 

  • Sleeping pad: There are a lot of different sleeping pads out there; some are even designed to be used in hammocks like Segl XL. A simple foam pad, reindeer skin, or similar will also work. We hope you´ll find what workes best for you. 
  • Underquilt: To be attached under your hammock as a replacement for sleeping pads etc. There are countless models available. Google it;)
