Seth’s hammocks do double duty. They’re made for lounging like most hammocks, but they’re also designed for travel, so you can take one along when you’re camping, hiking or stargazing in a friend’s backyard. Each Trek Light hammock is made of a strong parachute nylon that can hold up to 400 pounds. It’s incredibly light, too. The single hammock weighs just one pound, and the double model (with room for two) weighs just a few ounces more. Trek Light Gear also offers (and recommends using) a rope kit that makes it easy to set up the hammock. The kit spares you from tying any knots and relies on tension to suspend the hammock.
We heard about Seth and his Trek Light hammocks from Katherine Kinser at Stuffitts . We featured Stuffitts handy shoe-drying inserts earlier this year. Both Seth and Katherine know firsthand the challenges of trying to get a start-up company off the ground – and the importance of making time for a little rest and relaxation along the way. With one of these hammocks, it’s easy to unwind and get closer to nature, any time you have the chance.
