Tent hammocks have proved pretty popular lately and would-be buyers are spoiled for choice with products like the Crua Hybrid and Tentsile's various models. That said, the new Treble Hammock 2.0 looks like it may offer a more comfortable experience for those who want to use it to both lounge around and sleep. It also fits up to two people and can be kitted out with a bug screen and clamshell roof.

The Treble Hammock 2.0, which is currently raising funds on Kickstarter, weighs 13 lb (5. 8 kg), which is on the heavy side, and fits in a 26 x 10 x 8-in (66 x 25 x 20 cm) carry bag. It's rated for occupants up to 600 lb (272 kg) and creator Trent Johnson told us that it takes roughly five minutes to set up. It's a refinement of his first Treble Hammock that has already been brought to market.

In a bid to help his product stand out from the crowd, Johnson is keen to promote its relative comfort. We'd naturally have to try it out for ourselves before making a call, but the idea is that the hammock can be setup in a reclining position during the day, so you're propped up, then you adjust some carabiners to flatten it down when you want to sleep.

The Treble Hammock 2.0's adjustable seat strap lifts the knees and takes pressure off the lower back of the person using it. Johnson also says there's no squashing of the shoulders, swaying, or what he calls "cold butt syndrome," providing you stuff a blanket on the underside of the hammock with the provided strapping.

The Treble Hammock 2.0 also has a gear storage pocket near the user's head with six loops and a clamshell roof can be attached and either left open at the mouth or totally shut to seal off the interior from the elements. Finally, a bug net can be added, too.

The Treble Hammock 2.0 is currently the subject of a Kickstarter campaign and if you'd like to take a punt on everything working out, pledges start at US$285 for the full package. Assuming all goes to plan, delivery is hoped for January 2018.

TREBLE HAMMOCK 2.0

IIUC, it also has a divider strap that you can tighten to "split" the hammock into two bays, or loosen to accommodate a single person centrally. It looks like some thinking went into designing this, with useful configuration straps, covers, pouches, etc. The price is even tolerable, considering all the options you get.

The last one hanging over the water, with the third point anchored off a pole in the water. Your expect to swim/walk out or use a boat while tying and untying these things are whimsical while trying to get in and out especially over water or awkward uneven footing under & around.
