    Handy Hammock - The Ultralight Hammock Stand

    Hi,
    I thought I would share this photo to demonstrate just how light our portable hammock stand it. This is my daughter Lily aged two carrying one!



    The packed-down size is bout 30 inches by 4 inches and weighs 54 ounces including a lightweight hammock.

    Here's what it looks like once set up:

    My brother kindly took this shot of my parents using it on Welsh mountain. My brother was flying his paraglider

    It can even be set up on sand with the use of double length 24 inch pegs (instead of our normal 12 inch pegs) which we sell especially for sand use.




    Full details of the product, videos, pictures, review etc are available at HandyHammock.co.uk and we'll be adding loads more over the coming months. We will shortly be opening our doors to US and Canadian customers (albeit with high shipping charges) and we welcome enquiries from potential re-sellers.

    We will be publishing an occasional email newsletter which you can sign up to if you re interested in being notified of offers, product developments, re-sellers in your country ec etc. Nothing over the top, maybe an email every few months.


    Thanks!

    Jason Andrews

    PS The supporting struts are 55 inches when extended. Somebody asked me and I said I'd post it to the forum.

    Taking into account the angle that the support is on, the mounting height would be snout 4'. That doesn't sound like enough for a 10'-11' camping hammock.

    Welcome Jason

    What I'd like to know is the length of the black main support poles. I'm already hiking with poles that are 6 feet long.

    Might be a bit tight but I think it could be possible to adapt it to accomodate a 10' hammock. Our hammock is made using fabric measuring 7 feet 10.5 inches long , with a further 8-9 inches of cord at each end to the suspension ring, making it about 9 feet 3-4 inches. Really looking forward to Derek's assessment.

    Just received an email saying they are now shipping to the USA (even free this week only) trying to decide if I can afford the $160\99.99.

    For me, 4 ft high just isn't quite enough. Let me know if/when you have model in which I can have the supports at about 5 ft to 6 ft high.

    I'm with bear bag. I absolutely love your idea and product, but if it is possible, add some more length to your poles and hammock and you'd have a sure winner. I prefer slightly short hammocks, but at my height, your hammock is too short for me. Make an option for longer hammocks and I'll buy stock.

    By the way, very noble of you to introduce yourself on our lovely foum. Welcome from the edge of the world.

    @fish and bear bag hanger - thanks for the comments. Food for thought for product extensions/development next year.
