Exped Ergo Hammock Combi

The king of comfort in all temps.

Brand: Exped

Model: Ergo Hammock Combi


Specs

Weight

2lbs. 14oz.

After four different testers used the Ergo in everything from subzero temps (-26°F in Minnesota) to subtropical (80°F in Georgia), here’s the verdict: It’s the king of comfort, and it managed to convert several hammock skeptics, thanks to its innovative flat hang. It works like a suspension bridge to create a sleeping surface that’s perpendicular to your two hanging trees, and supported by a fan of cordage all along each side of your body, not just the head and foot (goodbye, banana shape). You can pitch the 7-by-9-foot tarp alone or over the hammock; open it wide for max ventilation or close it down to keep the weather out. The integrated bug netting stows into its own pocket, and a sleeve under the hammock its a pad in cold weather or can be used for storage. Caveat: It’s a little short; people over 6’ felt cramped. $379; 2 lbs. 14 oz.; exped.com
