​Why Hammocks Suck ​Why Hammocks Suck

I'm writing this with a sore back and exhausted from not getting enough sleep over the weekend. Hammocks lure you in with the romantic appeal of above-the-ground, free swinging sleep, then pounce on you with a poorly insulated, biomechanically painful design.

This Hammock Tent Is Like a Swanky Hanging Three Bedroom Apartment This Hammock Tent Is Like a Swanky Hanging Three Bedroom Apartment

Is there anything worse than setting up camp only to have a family of bears attack, dragging off your food and other campers? That (probably!) won't happen if you've packed a Tentsile tent which hangs out of the reach of predators.

A Hammock That Stays Flat So You Can Actually Sleep In It A Hammock That Stays Flat So You Can Actually Sleep In It

Is there anything that says 'I'm in paradise' more than sleeping on a hammock? But there's no back support! That's why Exped invented a Hammock with a flat back. Sleeping on a hammock never felt this good.

A Giant House Filled with Hammocks to Hang Out In. Don't Mind the Boobs Tower A Giant House Filled with Hammocks to Hang Out In. Don't Mind the Boobs Tower

Sometimes I think the Europeans know how to live. In Vienna, Austria they've created a gigantic 5-story "hangout spot" complete with hammocks to sprawl out in. The best part is the view. It's a gigantic Tower of Boobs.

This Mosquito-Proof Hammock Makes Swamps So Much More Relaxing This Mosquito-Proof Hammock Makes Swamps So Much More Relaxing

Doesn't swinging in a hammock really appeal today? Maybe you'd have a brand new book to dive into; a cocktail or two, and a kind slave to feed you grapes. Just make sure you have a mosquito-proof hammock. This one's $100, and folds into a tiny pouch when you're done. [Hammacher via Werd]

Hammock Sofa: Bring Out the Swinger in You Hammock Sofa: Bring Out the Swinger in You

This sofa hammock from a Franco-German design team called Bless is such a simple concept that it's a wonder it hasn't been done before.
