No trees, no problem. Eagles Nest Outfitters‘ Nomad lets you enjoy your hammock on any site that has a stable surface. It’s made of aluminum alloy and comes with a carrying case as well as cargo loops. It’s also available from Amazon.
Flying Squirrel Outfitters‘ handmade hammocks have a unique double-ended pouch. You can slide the pouch along the hammock to adjust the tension, so you can create a stiff hanging chair or a loose hammock. Available as 22oz two-person or 11oz one-person hammock.
TrailNest’s foldable hammock stands are meant to be attached to vehicle roof bars, but can also be used on the ground. They have their own floors so you won’t step on your roof. There’s also a kit that comes with a ladder. Available in single or double stands.
Most portable hammocks require that you string them up between trees. But this one comes with a folding frame, making it perfect for the beach and open fields. It has a movable canopy for sun protection, a 9-can drink cooler, and packs up into the included carrying bag.
We can think of few more relaxing ways to spend a day than floating on a quiet lake, or in a lazy hammock. The MelloShip combines both of these “activities” into one. Lie back, relax, and steer the solar-powered vessel via remote control. Holds two hammocks, so bring a friend!
