BUSHBED™ hammock / olive
BUSHBED™ hammock – it’s a big, comfortable, and light hammock with a unique mosquito net system that protects against insects and morning sunlight. BUSHBED™ works perfectly during traveling along with the bush or forest, at the seaside, or just in the garden.
When you comfortably lay in, just pull the cord and the mosquito net will slide out. Then just click the buckle to finally close the net and you are fully protected against the insects.
The mosquito net has a mesh of 1 mm pore diameter, making it perfect protection against even the smallest insects such as flies, black fleas, or young ticks. Its density and the special thread used in the net makes it impossible to chop down twigs, grasses, and other trash. It can be spread over the full or only the part of the length of the hammock. The mesh is on 2/3 of the mosquito net, while the rest of the overhead is covered with a hammock material. The canopy protects against direct sunlight, moisture, dust, and gives a pleasant sense of intimacy.
At any time you can tilt the mosquito net creating a window between the net and hammock to look around, reach for something, or just talk to your friends. By blocking the second slide at the end of the hammock you can unzip the net directly above your head and, for example, admire the stars. The rest of the body is covered with a zippered hammock material to create a characteristic, safe cocoon. The slider connects the edges of the hammock by 2/3 of its length, from the feet to the head.
Here you can find simple tips for how to repel mosquitoes outdoors.
The BUSHBED™ is equipped with a handy pocket for all the essentials. The pocket is placed over the head in order to make the content (eg. phone, headlamp, glasses) easily accessible.
The BUSHBED™ is packed into a travel bag with a tiny hole on the bottom. The hammock rope can be run through this hole so it will never be lost. During the day, the mosquito net can be stored in this bag.
Both the hammock and canopy are made of the parachute fabric. Thanks to that they are airy, yet splash resistant. The load capacity of the BushBed™ is 200kg; its size is 2,8m x 1.4m, therefore even a very tall person can sleep comfortably in both the classical and Brazilian positions.
Two additional carabiners for assembly and 4m of ridgeline for hanging mosquito nets are also included.
The weight, together with the mosquito net, is just 0.65 kg. That makes it one of the lightest hammock with a net.
