Blessed with plenty of outdoor space? Ready to revel in warmer weather? Make the most of summer by creating a relaxing, inviting outdoor place to rest, read and chill.
One of the easiest ways to do just that? A comfy, sturdy hammock. It'll become a coveted spot for cat naps and curling up with a book, plus it serves as extra seating when guests stop by. A hammock is also portable — you can bring it camping or to the park.
Intrigued? Amazon's No. 1 bestselling model, the Wise Owl Outfitters Hammock, is on sale for $21 with the on-page coupon, down from $33. (Prices vary for some colors and sizes.)
The hammock comes in two sizes — for one person (108 x 54 inches) or two people (120 x 78 inches) — and 14 colors (crimson! navy! yellow!). Made entirely of sturdy parachute nylon, it's lightweight (just 24 ounces!) and folds up to the size of an eggplant.
As for installation? That's super easy, too — it comes with 9-foot straps that you can tie to any tree. Plus, five separate loops make it a piece of cake to adjust the height, keeping you as close or as far away from the ground as you'd like. You'll be able to set it up in just a minute.
The hammocks are designed in the USA and the brand is family-owned and operated. Shoppers rave about the quality in particular, as well as how easy it is to set up.
One customer shared: "This has been hands down one of my most favorite purchases on Amazon. I have always seen people hammocking in various places and I always wondered what the hubbub was about, but now I know! This hammock is not only stylish and durable, but it was most importantly affordable. Even with no prior experience, setup was a breeze and after a couple of practice setups, you would think that I have been doing it my whole life."
Other shoppers can't imagine themselves going camping again without the lightweight hammock in tow: "My husband and I LOVE our double hammock from WOO," shared one reviewer. "We’ve been wanting to buy a hammock for years and finally pulled the trigger when we went glamping this year. We used the hammock so much that weekend, I honestly can’t imagine going camping again without it."
This shopper even recommends it for overnight snoozes: "I've never liked sleeping in a tent. I'm always too hot, and it's stuffy in there, and all the nylon, plus the weight and the setup...no thanks. So, for a recent two-night hike I thought I'd try a hammock. After doing some research, I settled on the Wise Owl Outfitters Single Hammock. I'm a convert for life! It's lightweight, easy to set up, sturdy and comfortable."
