There’s nothing quite like a hammock on the beach. But there’s not always two open trees within hammock tying up distance. So I’ve been looking for a folding hammock for a couple of years now. They were either expensive (over $100), flimsy (I’m close to 200 lbs) or they don’t swing like a hammock, they’re more like a cot, and where’s the fun in that. Recently while browsing on Amazon I came across the Guide Gear portable folding hammock, being sold by The Sportsman’s Guide. At less than $40, it fit my price profile, and with solid 4-star reviews, I decided to give it a try.
It was back-ordered a couple of weeks, but I finally received it last weekend. I set it up immediately (took about 60 seconds without instructions) and it definitely meets the need. It’s a bit heavy, so its not something you’d want to lug on a long walk to the beach, but for those spots where you can park close to the sand, I can’t imagine a better setup for a post-surf nap.
Who’s it for? Any surfer who might like a post-sesh nap on the beach
How much is it? Less than $50 including shipping
