So what this is about

This Mock One is a collapsible and folding hanging cot rather than a hammock. So all the main elements are preattached to each other as a shock-corded structure. You will see in the video below what this actually means.

In other words, it needs a simple assembly but this all is done in a couple of minutes. Officially, the setup time is 60 seconds, see how this is done:

Sunshade

It comes with the adjustable sunshade shown in the pictures, so this is indeed a great detail. You attach it on the two sides and then expand, it can rotate so you can position it to keep the sun out of your face. They claim it offers UPF 50+ rated shade.

Mesh basket

So this is a small item that does not cost much to add, but this is incredibly useful to keep things organized and off the ground. The picture below shows how it looks underneath the bed, it is very large and deep so you can store lots of stuff.

Observe also these nicely designed feet. This is a clever design, they are extended and have those peaks, so they will not sink if you use the hammock on a soft ground, and the peaks will keep it in place. Simple and very effective.

Other features

Note that the bed’s fabric is with what looks like side wings, so you can wrap them a bit around you if you feel cold. This also adds more space if you sit on the hammock and swing, you will see this in the video below.

Note that there is no classic carry bag, but it comes with that wrap shown in the top picture above, with a nice strap.
Here is a bit more about this whole concept:

 

In this video you will see the company founder addressing some issues and describing some features of this item, have a look:


Who is it for

Regarding the weight capacity, this folding hammock is quite moderate with its 250 lb (113 kg) declared capacity. But no doubt this is good enough for most of the potential users.

Regarding the weight, this is an ultralight structure with its 14.5 lb (6.6 kg). You can compare it with some of its competitors given in our separate list where this item is also included.

They describe it as the lightest existing and they are close to this. But see also this KingCamp Ultralight Cot Hammock.

Regarding the packed size, this hammock folds nicely but it remains a bit long in one dimension. The packed size 33 x 11 x 6 inches (84 x 28 x 15 cm) is such that you need a car for transportation.

But when you compare it with its competitors you realize that this packed size is indeed exceptional. They describe it as the most compact cot-hammock of this type, and they are nearly right.

Regarding the size, with its dimensions are not particularly impressive, see the picture:

So if you are a tall person, you might want to check some other options. But there is more to this, see the picture below:

As you realize, it comes with padded ends, the same on both sides, so you can indeed extend over the end bars.

Note also that the area occupied by its legs (the footprint) is exceptionally small, it is only 36 x 24 inches (91 x 61 cm).  So you can deploy it in a relatively small space and it can extend above some low items around. This because it is rather tall, the highest points are 31 inches (79 cm) above the ground.
