republic of durable goods has designed the mock ONE, a compact folding hammock that does not attach to trees and can be used in areas where traditional hammocks are not allowed. coined as a world first, the patented design offers users the opportunity to relax in places they wouldn’t be able to otherwise, while its many accessories, including quilts for warmth, tarp for rain and shade, nets for bugs, and more, allow them to configure the hammock to their environment.

mock ONE: world's first compact folding hammock sets up without trees

 

 

the light, safe and compact design of the mock ONE requires a minimal level ground space of 91 x 61 cm and floats 45 cm off the ground. the hammock packs into a functional carry bag with backpack straps that allow it to be transported easily,  while its detailed design comes with various features, including a heavy duty frame that can hold up to 114 kg (250 lbs), foam padded ends for the user’s head and feet, a mesh basket for speakers, towels and other small objects, sun shade, and side pockets. depending on the choice of accessories, the mock ONE can transform into three possible configurations: the every day, the most basic version that includes a sun shade; the adventurer, with added under and top quilts and pillow; and, the chill master, that transforms it into an outdoor shelter complete with a mosquito net and tarp.

 

the hammock is now live on kickstarter, with the first pieces estimated to launch september 2018.

      

 

 

  • The hammock looks great but I’m concerned about the length. I am 6’1″ tall and worry that my head and feet will be resting on the two cross bars at either end. Can you shed any light on that concern?

    Clay Allison says:
  • I do have the same concerns, it is a great idea but it seems too short to have a prober sleep – you should be able to sleep diagonal to be comfortable…..do you have plans for a longer version?
