Nowadays, travel hammock mostly made of the thin nylons so it will be easier to be packed into your backpack and lighter to bring almost everywhere since it couldn’t be burden your shoulder like a tent. Many of the hammocks even not more than 1 kilo because of its lightweight design. So actually, the better hammock is should be as light as it is.
There are 3 types of hammock. The first one is the parachute hammock that also become as the standard whether in the industry itself or in the wild. Secondly, the rope hammock. And yes, it is made of rope as its name. You will mostly found this one on the beach between the coconut trees, right?

After that, you should also pay attention about the ropes and the hooks so you could attributed your hammock to the trees or poles. Usually, the ropes made of webbing and nylon. And the best one is (of course) the nylon since it can holds a weight up to 450 kg and more resistant to frictions. Meanwhile the webbing will be easily off by the frictions with the rough surfaces.
The last one tips will be more related to the manufacturer or the company where the travel hammock was made. It is about the manual guide that consists of the instructions of usage and also the warranty that for how long would the customers get. The warranty itself could be asked about the overall of the hammock itself or maybe just the carrying capacity. Yes, carrying capacity should has its own warranty. Ask that before you buy one.
