I did a double hammock and it was more comfortable...

I posted the other day about how I did a ruck sack carry and my back started to hurt pretty quickly. A few mamas recommended that I try a double hammock instead and they were right. It is more comfortable. I did still have some discomfort in my back but I think that was probably from me bending over for a bit while I got it wrapped right. Oh, and the double hammock wasn't as difficult to do as I thought it might be, it actually didn't seem any more difficult than the ruck. Thank you for the suggestion ladies!

    Ruck is a type of carry. I didn't know there were different ties? Do you mean like tied in front vs. tied under the bum. My other post is just a few down, still on the front page, and I linked to the video of the directions I used for the rucksack. The video is done by a fellow Bumpie Ncbelle and is really easy to follow, I also used her video to learn how to do the double hammock, you should check it out.  

  • Glad the DH worked out for you!  It was always my favorite carry.  I could never get a ruck adjusted just right.

  • Thanks. I have a lot to learn. Embarrassed I guess by ties I meant different ways to carry.
