What this is about
Here you have a freestanding structure that they call hammock but this is nor really a hammock. This is a hybrid with features of a cot and a hammock. I would say it has the best of both.
They correctly describe this structure as collapsible and foldable. You have practically only two elements here, a folding frame and the bed. So the bed must be attached to the frame which you spread in seconds. The attachment is easy, the picture shows how you add the bed to the frame:
You have the same ring in all four corners of the bed so attaching it to the frame is simple. This is all very different from a classic hammock. These attachment points with rings and loops allow for some flexibility, so the connection is not completely rigid but they prevent typing. This system is a bit different from their Mac Sports H900S-100 hammock/cot where the connection is more rigid.
What you see from the picture above is also the fact that you have spreader bars on both ends. This is very different from classic hammocks, and it makes it more similar to a cot. But there are no side bars, and this is why the bed shapes like a hammock when you are on it.
Note that this item comes with a bonus pillow shown in the picture below, and there is also a large storage net underneath the bed, it can remain attached when you fold the frame.
The fabric used for the bed is a polyester, they do not provide much information about its tenacity and denier value.
The frame is a heavy-duty powder-coated steel. They have added X-shaped support bars at two narrow sides, they are visible above. The feet are some sort of plastic, they are wide and this is a floor-friendly design.
The hammock/cot comes with a durable carry bag shown in the picture, so you can carry it short distances and also keep it clean and protected from dust when stored at home for extended periods.
Who is it for
Regarding the capacity, officially it is 225 lb (102 kg) and this is quite modest. So check in my list of best folding hammocks if you need more.
Regarding the dimensions, this is a large structure, its overall dimensions are (L x W x H) 89.1 x 39.34 x 26.37 inches (226 x 100 x 67 cm). Note that this is not bed’s actual length, but the bed is indeed very wide, so this is a lot of space to sprawl.
As you realize, it is higher than any cot, and the area occupied by its feet is far smaller than the overall structure. This means that you can fit it in narrow spaces, and the bed itself can stay above some lower items around. This also allows for storing some stuff underneath it if you are in a small tent.
Regarding the weight, this is a very heavy item, you have 31.4 lb (14.2 kg), and although the carry bag is nicely built, you would not want to carry it long distances.
Note that it is long when packed, the dimensions are 47.21 x 9.84 x 6.3 inches (120 x 25 x 16 cm). So it needs a car for transportation.
Regarding the price, this is a very affordable outdoor product, a great value for the money.
