Gear Review: Slumberjack Hover Screen Hammock

The best features in a hammock are comfort, compactness and convenience. The Slumberjack Hover Screen Hammock delivers all of those elements, plus it features an attached bug screen. Better still, all of the attachment components are included, and the attached storage bag doubles as a side pocket. Thanks to its steel rings and carabiners, the hammocks boasts a 650lb load capacity. The integrated 40d polyester no-see-mesh allows for a comfortable bug-free slumber, and the screen height is adjustable. The Hover Screen Hammock weighs less than a full Nalgene bottle, and it’s roughly the same size. I’ve slept in several different hammocks over the years, and I have to confess that the added bug protection gave me so much more peace of mind that I wasn’t going to wake up with any mosquito bites. You still need a tarp for weather protection, but this is a great hammock for anyone looking for comfort, compactness, and convenience. MSRP: $59.95.
