This Wise Owl portable camping hammock is less than $11 on… – SFGATE

Whether you’re a hardcore camper or consider beach days the ultimate way to enjoy the Great Outdoors, a hammock is arguably an ideal way to channel some seriously chill vibes.

In the last decade or so, hammocks have undergone a major makeover, with modern-day versions evolving into lightweight, compact, and transportable versions of their heavy, handwoven (and often , stationary) counterparts. Fortunately, as just about every outfitter out there has a hammock these days, prices have become more competitive, too.

But deals as low as this one on Amazon are rare: just over a tenner for a camping hammock by trusted outdoor brand Wise Owl Outfitters.

The Wise Owl Hammock version weighs just a little over a pound (24 ounces, to be exact) plus folds to the size of an eggplant, making it a cinch to pack for any weekend trip where you envision lots of relaxed hanging out. It’s also great to use at home – or anytime you need an infusion of chillness in your day.

Made of lightweight, durable parachute nylon with triple-interlocking stitching, the hammock measures in at 9 feet long by 4. 5 feet wide and is ideal for one person (the weight limit is 400 pounds). The stuff sack is attached to the side, meaning it won’t get lost, and doubles as a handy pocket for cell phones and the like (and you’ll definitely want to snap some selfies when you’ve kicked back).

You won’t get yourself in a tangle setting it up, either. Included are two 9-foot tree straps and carabiners, with five different connection points on each strap that make for easy adjustment. All you have to do is find two trees approximately 12-20 ft apart, loop the straps around the trees (don’t worry, they won’t damage them), and clip the carabiners from the hammock to a connection point on the straps (trust us, it’s way easier than it sounds, and a setup video makes it virtually foolproof). Within about a minute, you’ll be swaying in the breeze and well on your way to the kind of relaxation that only a hammock can provide.  

Upkeep is a cinch too: Just remove the carabiners, toss the hammock into the washing machine, hang to dry, and you’re all set for your next hang sesh.  

Whether you’re buying one for yourself or as a gift, the Wise Owl hammock is a proven crowd pleaser: It’s the top seller in its category on Amazon, and it has more than 39, 000 five-star reviews. And with a current price that’s less than the cost of a couple of lattes, it’s a very Smart choice, indeed.
