Anyone who lives near the mountains or loves to explore the great outdoors appreciates a hammock. When you have a hammock, you can simply pitch it up between two sturdy placeholders and sit in it until your heart’s content. LAZZO reached out to have us test their 4-part hammock set, and I was happy to jump on it. I live in Colorado and being able to explore the mountains and camp with a hammock is ideal. The coolest part of this hammock is that it comes with a waterproof rainfly and a bug net so you can truly enjoy the outdoors or even sleep in your hammock without rain or bugs getting to you.
Opening and using the LAZZO hammock
Right out of the box, the hammock is pretty much ready to go. Everything fits into individual bags and each of those bags fits into a bigger bag that they all fit into for easy carrying. Overall, the three are a little heavy as one carrying unit, so you can pick and choose what you need to bring for each trip, but if you’re planning to be outside for a few days or going on a trip, you’ll want to bring them all.
The hammock build and use
The hammock is made with 70D nylon, which is excellent strength for a hammock. Typically you’ll see between 40 and 70 for outdoor hammocks. The overall capacity of the hammock can hold 400 lbs (180kg). These hammocks are easy to set up since you simply wrap it around the poles/trees/etc., and clip the carabineers where you want them to be. If you haven’t used a hammock before, expect it to sink down low from where you initially set it up, so you’ll want to set it up higher than you might be imagining to start. You can always lower it with the carabineers if it’s too high. Packing it back up was a little tough, and it will require some practice.
The bug net and rainfly
The bug net goes around you and zips up to protect you. It is made out of polyester mesh so it’s breathable and won’t make your hammock too hot if you’re using it in the warm weather. There are two rope hooks inside of it where you can hang camping lights, which makes this a great option if you plan to use your hammock at night. The bug net uses drawstrings to close at each end to keep bugs out.
The rainfly has waterproof levels up to PU3000mm. It comes with four stakes and six ropes so once you set it up, you can secure it into the ground to be sure you won’t get rained on.
Overall use and thoughts
I’ve tested a handful of hammocks through the years since I live in Colorado, and this is a great one. The one I got is double-sized so two people could easily fit inside. I always camp with my dog, who would love it as much as I do (although I’d watch out for dog nails on the material). There are not too many lighter hammocks out there, especially if you want one this durable. Altogether, the pieces are just under 5 lbs, and it could be less if you only bring some of them on your journey. I’d say this is a great option for anyone looking to go outdoors this summer!
