    Interesting Publicspace hammocks

    I traveled through Zürich (Switzerland) this month and came across this oversized spreaderbar nethammock
    almost closer to a cot or a flying mattress , the sheer size making it quite a comfortable place.
    Thats certainly the most rugged Hammock i have come across in person haha


    If i was homeless in Zürich i know where i`d come to sleep

    Also in the apartmentcomplex where i stayed many people had hammocks up on their balcony ,
    mostly mayan and brazilian ,some simple gatheredend-fabric hammocks, not a single spreaderbar-anomaly


    So now i just came across this seemingly asymmetrical wooden hammock
    Looks like a fun and really intersting project and it should withstand publicspace use


    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    Hitching around on this trip i have always been able to hang in comfort , making me a rather public hanger with dozens of cars and trucks waving by before it got sunny enough for me to leave the hammock



    This was about the most exposed i've ever been though and thats not a countryroad but Frances most travelled highway



    I'd never have slept so relaxed in that place without a hammock - made me glad i did not leave the BB behind to save weight .
    The Constrictor suspension has worked flawlessly aswell , such an easy way to set up and take down



    The Blackbird also got a new name recently when i lend it to a friend at a festival, astonished how its totally not uncomfortable she insisted on calling it the flying tent

    And i converted a nice guy that usually sleeps in his VW camper - i hung between his buses door and a tree -
    there will be another Blackbird flying to Germany soon

    Thanks for sharing the pics.

    You are doing all the good converting people to be 'hangers'. Keep up the good work!
