Hammocks are awesome, giving you a place to lie down well above the cold, damp ground during camp. Problem is, it does nothing to protect you from the elements, so you’ll need to set up a proper tent and sleep on the ground during less-sunnier days. The Snugpak Hammock Cocoon changes that.
No, it doesn’t turn your hammock into a hanging tent like many solutions we’ve seen. Instead, it turns your hammock into a hanging cocoon that traps you inside like a caterpillar while waiting for your turn to blossom into a beautiful butterfly. Or something like that.
An alternative to sleeping bags, the Snugpak Hammock Cocoon is designed to cover the entire hammock, giving it an insulating layer to keep the elements out during the colder days of the coming months. That way, you can stay toasty and dry in a hammock despite the rain and snow, without the discomfort of sleeping bags compressing under the hammock’s tension. It uses Travelsoft for insulation, which boasts excellent heat-trapping properties, ensuring the area inside the cocoon can stay as toasty as possible.
A full-length zipper ensures there’s no need to perform physical contortions to get in and out of the cover, with Paratex antibacterial treatment ensuring it doesn’t get funky inside while you seek shelter from the chilly air. It comes with a compression stuff sack for easily lugging along with the rest of your gear.
Available now, the Snugpak Hammock Cocoon is priced at $ 54.
