Our take Sleeping off the ground is something every hiker should experience, but many would-be hammockers are turned off by the prospect of spending a night in the dreaded burrito position. That’s not an issue with the Sky Bed Bug Free, which has an asymmetrical design that, when pitched tautly, makes for an impressively flat sleeping surface. The best part? A sleeping pad sleeve—rare in a hammock—adds an extra shot of comfort by keeping sleepers in one place.

The details The Sky Bed Bug Free has a mesh canopy to keep bugs at bay. A full-zip opening means easy ingress and egress, and the canopy’s ample headroom makes it easy to sit upright. The Sky Bed packs down to the size of a cantaloupe.

Trail cred “The four interior pockets were perfect for storing my headlamp, book, water bottle, and other essential items,” one tester reports.
