TL/DR: We wanted a nicer-looking tiny hammock that you could bring in your carry-on luggage.
Why we designed it
Can you think of anything more serene than hanging from the trees and watching the world go by?
Some of our favourite outdoor memories were made, strung up to a tree, with a tinny in hand, bantering with mates.Our top 5 hammock moments:
- Strung up on the beach in Vieques, Puerto Rico with wild horses trotting past.
- Fish fries at Granny's house in Pensacola, Florida.
- Reading "Atlas Shrugged” under the palm trees in Barbados.
- Watching whales breech at Red Bluff, Western Australia.
- Scoping the surf break at San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua.
A refreshing Australian Palette
Taking inspiration from the Australian outback, we created two parachute nylon colours: Goldrush & Peacock.
Gold Rush reminds of the Banksia tree at golden sunset. It's like a fresh twist on classic outdoor army-green.
Hardware that’s not a drag
We wanted a monotone palette with a semi-matte black carabiner that would all stuff down into one 500 g pouch. The bent gate design was selected for ease of use while the 24 kN rating means you aren't going anywhere once locked in place.
We also spent a lot of time sourcing our high-quality, 6mm classic climbing rope to be strong, familiar and compact without over engineering.
The result? A good-looking, industrious support group for your triple edge-stitched, parachute nylon hammock that can support up to 200kg.
