Hammacher Schlemmer is featuring The Bunyanesque Hammock, a giant suspended bed that supports up to 1,100 pounds, “a herd of children, or a single oversized axe-wielding woodsman.” It is available to purchase from the Hammacher Schlemmer store.
Handcrafted in Colorado from sturdy ripstop nylon by an FAA-certified parachute rigger, it supports up to 1,000 lbs. and spans 8′ deep x 15′ wide—the same width as 2 1/4 king-sized mattresses—providing ample room for lazy afternoon naps. Four 20′-long, 1″-wide straps—each on its own rated to support up to 1,100 lbs.—secure the hammock’s four webbed type-12 bonded nylon corners to trees, posts, or other sturdy, immovable structures using eight stainless steel hooks.
