Our original Guide Gear® Portable Folding Hammock (item 172580) is such a hit that we can barely keep it on the shelves. In fact, our customers love it so much (and love to talk about loving it), that it's garnered hundreds of positive customer reviews and an impressive 4.4-star rating. But some folks had one request: make it bigger. So we did! Introducing the NEW Guide Gear® Oversized Hammock, featuring the same legendary Guide Gear® performance found in the original, but in a larger, more accommodating design.
Our Oversized Hammock weighs only 2 lbs. more than the original, yet its weight capacity is a heavy-duty 350 lbs. The secret rests in its ultra-strong steel tube frame, which offers superb stability, yet is light enough to pick up and go anytime you're ready for a scenery change. In addition, the frame is also about a foot longer and slightly wider, so go ahead and stretch out those legs even further.
Hanging hammocks are limited by the availability of trees or posts that need to be the perfect distance apart. Not this Hammock! It stands on its own and sets up in a flash, which opens up a world of lounging possibilities almost anywhere. Just unfold the frame, insert the locking pins to secure the legs in place, attach each hammock end to the hooks—and voilà! You are now enjoying the scenic view of your choosing. And when you're ready to go, simply remove the pins, fold the accordion-style base, pack it inside the backpack-style carry bag, and you're off to your next destination!
