Vivere Double Hammock

vivere hammock

A reader suggested this fantastic Vivere double hammock as a permanent fixture on my deck. The platform is solid, the material long lasting, and the whole thing was a breeze to set up.

Last year I blogged about a lightweight camping hammock and stand. In the comments for that post, this Vivere hammock and stand were pointed out as low-cost alternative--the commenter was right! It is far larger and easily fits/supports two adults, as long as their combined weight is less than 450lbs. The hammock material itself is bright, durable and has taken over 365 days of environmental beating. The stand came together in moments and is holding up very well. Almost no rust to be seen, and I live fairly close to the ocean.

I'll still take the Gear Guide with me on van camping trips, but the Vivere double hammock is used nearly every day and many nights, because it's great to sleep in.

    This is me with Molly. She passed away in November. Nemo is too big for the hammock, but Pretzel is in it all the time.

  2. Not to diss or anything, this looks quite fine, but since you're a savvy VW bus traveler and visitor to Mexico, you should know that the approximate thing is available in the near price range, but using The One True Hammock (Yucatan), which you can take off the frame when desired and schlep anywhere and have unparalleled comfort. Here's a link to a seller I have no experience with, but good pictures of what they are about. Even without a frame, it's worth picking one up. They changed traveling and backpacking for me, and I still have a cotton one (I would only recommend nylon for ones left more or less permanently hung) that I got in 1979 that's in perfectly good condition.
    Edited to add: You want thin string, as closely woven as you can afford.

  3. Yes, but you've still got a 'blanket' hammock, instead of a glorious, morphable, breeze through the strings Yucatan hammock.
