Hammocks are a brilliant invention. Not only can they be incredibly comfortable for lounging around a campsite, but they also help get you off of the dirty and, potentially, bug-ridden ground. Most, however, are designed strictly around lying down and facing up. Not the Nemo Equipment Cloudview Hammock, though. This hammock is designed to help you enjoy your surroundings.
Employing spreader bars and the brand’s Layflat patterning, this comfortable hanging bed will keep your posture elevated, similar to that of a beach chair. That way, your head rests in a manner consistent with being able to look at the landscape surrounding you. It’s a simple concept, yes, but it can make all the difference. And, if that clever innovation isn’t enough, it also comes equipped with an integrated no-spill cupholder and an electronics pocket for your phone or tablet. The Cloudview Hammock retails for $170.
