Ticket To The Moon Lightest Pro Hammock | Review

Perfect for forest camping in the height of summer, Ticket To The Moon have added some nice technical features here.

Why We Chose The Ticket To The Moon Lightest Pro Hammock: Portable, midge-proof, multi-functional

Reviewed by our team back in 2020, Ticket To The Moon have recently come out with a ‘Pro’ version of their ISPO award-winning Lightest Hammock, aimed at more technical hammocking adventures. 

The Lightest Pro includes extra features such as an integrated bug net, a slightly longer length of 325cm (carabiner to carabiner), and a tougher Ripstop nylon build. There’s also an integrated ridgeline with a handy built-in organiser, amongst other things.

Pictured here, we’ve got the Lightest Pro Hammock (€140, 550g), the Lightest Straps (€30, 95g) and then the Lightest Tarp (€140, 412g) too. Bear in mind that while Ticket to the Moon do sell complete hammock, strap and tarp bundles, they don’t offer any that contain this new Lightest Pro Hammock.

Who Is The Pro Hammock Lite For?

Though heavier than the Lightest Hammock (by 322g), the Pro does, however, open up your options to slightly more rugged trips. Think multi-day adventures through a valley in the Cairngorms, where you’ll have plenty of trees to pitch up on, but need some extra protection from the elements, and perhaps a little more luxury – including bug protection. 

How To Hang It

It’s actually much easier than you’d think. You wrap one end of the webbing straps (again these are purchased separately) around a tree or post, thread the other end of the strap through the loop at the end and then clip the carabiner at each end of the hammock onto one of the laddered sections across the webbing. It all takes less than a minute and you can adjust tension easily when required.

The tarp comes with long cords at each end with carabiners and easy-to-use tension system. You just loop the cord around the tree, through the carabiner and pull to give tension. After that you just need to peg down the guylines at the sides.

The TTTM Lightest Pro is made from a 20D Ripstop OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 nylon that’s capable of safely supporting up to 100kg. According to the brand, every component of the nylon is tested for harmful substances and is 100% safe for human use. 

The bug net is made from a 200 holes/cm2 micromesh fabric with four zipper heads for easy access out of the hammock on both sides. It’s easy to gloss over statistics like the ‘200 holes/cm2’ but when you’re in the Scottish Highlands, and the midges are out in full force, and there’s nowhere to run – you’ll be grateful.

Another plus side of bug netting is its breathability, which – when compared with other lightweight options like bivvys – makes the Lightest Pro a great contender for the warm summer months. Conversely, if it gets a bit chilly, the holes in the fabric should deflect light winds and help create a little safe haven in your hammock.


Aside from the bug net, another new feature to note is the integrated ridgeline. This basically helps the hammock keep its shape and keeps your back straight and level when you’re tucked up inside. It also comes with an organiser sack that’s attached to it which is just about big enough to fit a book, your phone, a head torch, and maybe some midnight snacks. We can also see the ridgeline being handy for drying out your clothes after a sweaty day’s hike or an evening’s swim.

“It’s a great option for the warm summer months.”

Other features include extra carabiners for hanging your gear along the ridgeline, external loops to help attach an underquilt in the colder months, and a small banana-shaped stuff-sack for optimum portability.

The hammock also has a width of 140cm (4.6ft) and a maximum load of 100kg (16 stone). In this sense, maybe don’t let all your dogs jump in with you…(Just the one will do.)

The tarp, which is sold separately, is a great bit of kit too. It’s incredibly easy to erect and to make quick adjustments to as well.
