    Recycled hammocks? It's a thing, thanks to The Elevated Movement. Hands-on first look



    Hello everybody, I'm Gresh. This weekend, Palmetto State Hangers had our annual "Frozen Butt Hang" at Sesquicentennial State Park in Columbia, SC and the "Chief Hammock Officer" of fledgling company The Elevated Movement came down from the frozen north to join us in our decidedly less frozen part of the country.

    When he came down, he was nice enough to come packing a few samples of the new project he's working on - 100% recycled, custom printed hammocks. This video is an exclusive first look at those, with a little bit of information about what he and his company are doing, how they're doing it, and when it's all going down.

    The bullet points:
    -100% recycled hammock body material
    -100% recycled straps
    -Aircraft grade aluminum triglides made from recycled materials
    -Fully printed with ready-to-go artist contributed designs or your own custom work on the hammock (not screen printed...it's pretty righteous)
    -100% made in the good ol' USA. 'MURICA!

    Thanks to him for coming down and joining us for this hang, and for letting us get a look at what his company is offering. There will be a Kickstarter campaign coming soon for people to get in on the ground floor of this and get one of these at a Kickstarter price (which is generally cheaper than the eventual retail cost).

    If you have any questions about what I know about these or my opinion of these, comment. I'm not working for the company and I'm not getting anything in return for this video, so I'll be straight up with my opinion. His website is here, and here's his Facebook page.

    Tarps are coming soon I think...but poly rather than silnylon. If he markets to colleges with team logo's he can make a mint of the tailgaters and add ponchos a few stadiums loaded with your team logo poncho/traps sounds like money in the bank..

    Give me stone silence said the deaf man,

    Custom hammocks can happen, but he has to charge a little more 'cause it's not a full run - having discussed it with him, it REALLY won't be much. Less than $15, more than likely (not gospel, don't buy a house on that).

    Custom tarps (poly, like Dirtwheels said) will also be a thing.

    Very nice of you to do a video rundown of this new product. I'll definitely be following the progress of the kickstarter campaign. I like the idea of recycled, and I'm intrigued as to how much the recycled poly hammocks will weigh.

    Baller! I seen these on a FB hammock forum and also wondered how they "climbed" hammocks. Maybe I have a gift for my Mexican girlfriend.

    Mother of Guad-a-lupe anyone?

    Definitely interested.. I'd love to get my hands on a custom one.. Something about fishing.. . I assume they're painted on with dye? Probably acid washed then steamed to get those colors.

    When can I order?

    I don't remember the soft launch date for Kickstarter (it's somewhere in the video), but I think it's definitely gonna be up on March 1st if I remember correctly.

    That is a pretty neat idea of printing the hammock with whatever image you want. I'd have to figure out what I'd want though.... Hhmmmm, I should start thinking!

    Oh, he said in the video that the soft date for Kickstarter launch is Feb. 15th, with the definite start date of March 1st.
