Whether your summer takes you to the beach, or the park, or on a family camping trip, one thing remains the same: You’re going to need a place to sit. And you know what’s much more comfy and conducive to napping than a flimsy, foldable beach chair? A comfortable portable hammock you can pack up and take anywhere.
Most of these portable hammocks can be tied to two trees using rope (just be sure you’re knotting correctly to avoid a fall, which is decidedly not relaxing) or you can hang the hammock from a lightweight stand. There’s even one inflatable option here that doesn't need to be suspended at all, and another made just for kiddos, because just because a hammock can fit two doesn't mean you want to share.
Whether you want a breathable, quick-dry hammock which packs up tiny and weighs next to nothing (perfect for backpacking), or you like the bohemian look of a rope hammock or a funky print, there’s something here for every style and every budget. Now all you need is to grab a good book and a cold drink (one of these hammocks even has a genius built-in koozie). Summer may be different this year, but at least you can just hang out, literally.
