Award-Winning Hybrid Hammock and Tent

Many people who follow the Reserve are camping enthusiasts. We like to feature gear that we would use ourselves, and this Lawson camping hammock is one such item.

The beauty of this hammock is in the patent-pending design: you can have the thing suspended (like a hammock), or positioned on the ground like a tent.

The shelter comes with a spreader bar system that keeps the bed of the hammock flat so the thing doesn't bunch of up like a banana while in use. The hammock is bugproof and waterproof, and also includes a stake-free detachable rainfly.

The Blue Ridge Camping Hammock has had a great run. It won a Gear of the Year Award and has been highly rated by other backpacking and outdoor publications. Amazon reviewers have given the hammock a sparkling 4.3/5 stars.
