If you were lucky, this summer you got to spend a whole lot of time with your feet kicked back while swaying slightly in a hammock. Well, if you’re determined, you can keep your routine going even as the daylight wanes and the wind seems maybe just slightly cooler thanks to Snugpak’s Cocoon Hammock.

A novel solution to the problem of sleeping bag and clothing insulation compressing under the tension from the hammock. This insulating layer fully encases the hammock (rather like a giant banana skin) trapping warm air both within the hammock, but also in its generous layer of insulation. The full length zip allows easy access in and out of your. Due to the versatility of the hammock insulation systems, the wide variety of applications and variations in camp set up it is difficult to establish an overall comfort temperature for these items. As a general reference the insulation used isTravelsoft with the similar fill weights to our two season sleeping bags. We would strongly recommend you experiment with your own set up and gradually build up to more extreme temperatures until you are confident of the overall thermal performance.

Much in the same way that we throw on a coat before heading out for a hike through the snow, the cocoon offers a thick top layer that you keeps you warm and out of the wind no matter what. Setup is simple. Once you hang your hammock, all you need to do is to unzip the cocoon and feed it over, secure it in place, and you’ll be good to go. This lightweight outer skin acts like a banana peel, trapping in all of the warmth and keeping you insulated with its travelsoft technology so you can enjoy the comforts of a hammock even in the colder time of year. Prices start at $88.
