Coalatree Hammock – Value $39.99
The hero time of the month was a hammock from Coalatree. The short story is that it’s fantastic!
Buckles and I enjoyed it – it’s nice and relaxing with no pressure points on your back at all. This is an organic parachute nylon hammock, which means that it’s easy to pack up and super strong and durable.
The ends are fitting with rope and carabiners. We opted out of the rope and went with easier hammock suspension straps – that way, it’s ultra portable and quick to attach to any tree.
These parachute hammocks are also fantastic because you can easily sit up in them! You could sit in the middle like a swing or scoot back until you’re upright like I am here.
Kachula Blanket – Value $69.99
The second item is also from Coalatree – it’s a super durable blanket. It’s lightweight, waterproof, dirt-resistant, and nylon – so it’s ideal for the outdoors. Extra bonus, it’ll double as a pillow when you pack it into the pouch.
Both the hammock and the blanket pack into their own attached punch – so it’s really convenient on-the-go. Unlike most items you take out of the package, they’re also really easy to get back into the pouch – I was impressed!
Verdict: Liz and I are used to the typical, home-use, hammocks – but this one is so much more comfortable than those! And, it’s easy to store and pack away until you’re ready to use it. It’s so convenient that I still have a use for these items as someone who likes hammocks and not hiking – so that’s quite a feat to pull off.
