Aspen Times Weekly: Inflatable ‘Hammock’ Test

GET IT

$79.95

Leave your normal hammock at home. This summer, multiple small brands are selling so-called “inflatable hammocks,” which offer ad hoc seating any place in the outdoors.

You swipe the bag-like seat through the air. Once both sides are filled, close and roll the end tight. Snap a buckle and sit down. Sink in, and enjoy.

I tested the couch-like WindPouch product this month while camping as well as around town. It’s comfortable to sit on and easy to inflate.



Get ready for some weird looks, however, and brace for some commentary on what appear to be a set of oversize lips ready to suck you into a fold.

WindPouch Inflatable Hammocks cost $79.95. They are made of a coated nylon and rated to hold about 550 pounds before they burst.

WineInk: January Dreams

|

Perhaps it’s because we are in the abbreviated days of winter and I instinctively know that the sun is shining down-under. But every January I go through a nostalgic period where Australian wine dominates my mind.
