What this is about
This Nikkycozie Fold Up Hammock is what its name says, a folding structure which you can pack to a relatively small size of only 46.06 x 11.02 x 6.69 inches (117 x 28 x 17 cm). This design implies that it needs assembly when you use it, but this is done easily and without any tool.
Now, every hammock is foldable so this is nothing new, but this what you have here is also a fully freestanding hammock. So you need no trees around or poles to hang the hammock. In other words, you can set it up anywhere, and this should be taken literally.
This hammock comes also with several bonuses.
- I would say that the canopy is the most important bonus here. This means you can be in the shade even if you use this hammock at the pool or on the beach. Note that the canopy is removable (see the picture); this is useful if you use the hammock as a bed in the tent.
- But as you see from the pictures, it comes also with a very useful mesh shelf underneath the bed deck. So you can keep all your belongings off the ground.
- This is not all, you have a pillow included with the dimensions 18.9 x 9.4 in (48 x 24 cm).
- There is also a wheeled carry bag included for transportation and to keep the stuff clean from dust when stored at home.
The fabric used for the bed is 600D polyester, and the frame is steel.
Who is it for
Size-wise, with the bed’s dimensions 89.5 x 39.37 inches (227 x 100 cm), this is a great size hammock, suitable even for very tall people. It is considerably wider than some of its competitors, you will see this in the comparison table below. So this size is in the range of extra wide camping cots which I have in my separate text.
Capacity-wise, with the declared capacity of 250 lb (113 kg), this hammock is quite standard, not so impressive. But this should be enough for most users.
Weight-wise, in view of its 32.19 lb (14.6 kg) of weight, this is all but a light thing, but this is typical for such constructions. You will realize this from the comparison table below.
I already mentioned its packed size, so in view of all these parameters, this is clearly a camping item for places with a car access.
Using the Nikkycozie Hammock in Tent
You have seen the hammock shown without the canopy. In such a state it looks almost like a camping cot, so there is no reason why it could not be used that way in a large family camping tent. So this is indeed a versatile item.
Note that the bed deck is around 26 inches (66 cm) above the ground, so you have plenty of volume underneath the hammock to store your camping gear.
The legs are with large and floor-friendly feet, but you might still want to add some carpet underneath the feet to protect the tent’s floor.
Good and less good features
Here is my short summary:
- Easy setup.
