Swaying in the breeze on a hammock is fun. You know what’s not fun? Falling asleep in a hammock and waking up with a sore back hours later. Yeah, the lack of back support on those hanging sacks just make them less-than-ideal for anything longer than short naps. The Klymit Hammock V wants to change that.
Yes, you can lay down a sleeping mat on the hammock to give the bed a firmer, more comfortable support. Problem is, sleeping mats aren’t exactly designed for the curved surfaces of hammocks, giving them a tendency to slip and slide out of place at some point during your rest. That won’t happen with this thing.
An inflatable sleeping pad, the Klymit Hammock V is sized and patterned to fit on the bed of most hammocks in the market, ensuring it can deliver all-night comfort without slipping. It comes in a specially-developed V-shape to better accommodate the requirements of hammocks, while expanding your hammock by pushing at the edges to make your sleeping surface just a little bit flatter. Deep welds on the pad create expansion zones underneath for better thermal comfort, while 20D polyester construction ensuring it can survive the dangers of the wild.
Features include flush flat valves for easy inflation (between 15 to 20 breaths), an anti-microbial laminate to prevent it from stinking over time, and a bundled patch kit for those times it sustains damage. It measures 47 x 78 x 2.5 inches when inflated and packs down to a convenient 4 x 8 inches.
Available now, the Klymit Hammock V is priced at $139.95.
