Ever hit a club and thought to yourself, “This place needs a hammock.” Well, it makes perfect sense. You get too tired from dancing, you take a breather in that hanging sack over there. Same when you get a little too drunk, too stoned, or too sad after being rejected by the fifth girl you tried grinding on in the dance floor — a hammock just sounds like the perfect place to relax and reboot your senses. With all the hammocks out there, we can’t imagine a more fitting one for the clubs than this Disco Hammock.
A hammock decked in Betabrand’s absurdly shiny “disconium” fabric, it lets you sway around in a suspended bed that’s totally covered in the shimmering material. Granted, this looks out of place hanging from two trees along the lake near Aunt Martha’s Bunkie cabin, but it’s exactly what you need if you want to turn the lakeside camp into a veritable party scene.
The Disco Hammock is based on ENO’s DoubleNest Hammock, recreating the latter’s construction and design, but using a fabric reminiscent of 70s-era disco balls rather than traditional canvas material. Measuring 9’4” x 6’2” when hung, it has enough space to accommodate two people while supporting up to 400 pounds. It features aluminum wiregate carabiners, heavy-duty triple-stitched seams, quick-drying nylon material, and an attached compression stuff sack. You will have to purchase straps for hanging it around posts and trees separately.
We’re not sure if this will blind people when hung at the beach during the middle of the afternoon, but wouldn’t it be fun to find out? The Disco Hammock is available for preorder from Betabrand, priced at $97.20.
