    Integrated peapod and hammock concept?

    Sitting at work in the middle of the ocean with nothing else to do but think. I am just curios how hard it would be to integrate a peapod and hammock in to one system? Don't flame me to bad just thinking.

    I don't see a thing wrong with it. I have thought of it too. The only problem with it is that it would tie up ones setup permanently. It sure would be handy though.

    It would be very handy. I think if it where done right it could be used for all 4 seasons though.

    .... the Aardvark (earth pig)... a rather unremarkable creature whose sole claim to fame is that it is the first animal listed in the dictionary.

    That is similar to what I was thinking. I wish that one was down filled though.

    When I velcro my Snugfit to my Speer Hammock, toss in a Speer Top Blanket, and close the top with a shortened Speer Bugnet, it is essentially an insulated hammock, which can be disassembled.

    It has both velcro and a suspension... the Speer Hammock has velcro for attaching the bugnet. It is also used to attach the edges of the Snugfit, which serves to eliminate edge leaks. The Snugfit has a shock cord suspension as well. Since it has elastic mesh ends, the hammock is completely covered by the Snugfit, like a PeaPod without a top.

    The Snugfit repeats the hammock velcro on it's outer edge, so you can use the Speer Bugnet. I use the bugnet, or a similar sized piece of nylon with velcro on it's edges, as an uninsulated top to close the Snugfit like a PeaPod.

    Last January, I combined the Snugfit with a PeaPod to make a SnugPod.

    Once the Snugfit is rigged on your hammock, you can leave it there for the whole season! Too bad it's no longer made...

    My winter setup uses a down insulated hammock inside an insulated sock that fastens over the cords at the hammock ends with velcro and ties. It stays assembled, so it's functionally a one-piece unit. One of the best things about it is the top-center zipper for entry/exit. I'll use that on the next integrated hammock/sock I make.
