While your Airstream® bed is a perfectly cozy place for sleeping, sometimes nature beckons you to dream outside. Whether for relaxing, napping, or stargazing before drifting off for the night, a Lawson Hammock is an ideal camping companion.

The Blue Ridge Camping Hammock is the bee’s knees of hammocks. This award-winning, top-rated piece of gear is a hybrid tent-hammock with a patented design that lets you hang loose from a couple of trees or set up your snug place on the ground just like a tent. These options allow you to relax on all types of terrain.

Sturdy and durable, the Camping Hammock will be a piece of gear you use (and use often) for years to come. The body is made of ripstop nylon and poly pack cloth. A strong spreader bar and shock-corded aluminum arch pole system keep the hammock bed flat and taut, eliminating the uncomfortable “cocoon” effect created by most hammocks.

The Blue Ridge comes with an attached no-see-um bug net and an attachable rainfly that goes directly onto the hammock, so you won’t need additional trees for tying off a tarp. The rainfly is also made of ripstop nylon and has a waterproof nylon border that protects against water blowing under and up into the hammock, so you stay nice and dry. Inside, you’ll find smart details, like two storage pockets and a ceiling O-ring for hanging a lantern.

The entire setup is super lightweight at 4.25 lbs. and a breeze to set up. Use this quintessential hammock for any type of camping – from mountains to beach to desert to, heck, your own backyard. Just bring your favorite book, kick back and relax in supreme comfort.
