Coalatree Loafer Packable Hammock Review

Coalatree Loafer Packable Hammock

When you go camping, to the beach, or anything else of the sort, having a good place to rest is essential. If you plan on going camping, instead of sleeping on the ground, sleeping in a hammock is always an option. It keeps you off the ground, and it means that you get to see the stars at night too.

That said, finding a good hammock that is durable, comfortable, and affordable is easier said than done. Luckily for you, we have a camping hammock that meets all of these criteria. Let’s take a look at a basic and affordable yet comfortable and durable hammock. 

Coalatree Loafer Packable Hammock

Today, we want to review the Coalatree Loafer Packable Hammock. It may look very simple, and in all reality it is, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s made out of durable and comfortable materials, is portable, and easy to set up too. It comes with everything you need to sleep in comfort, all without costing  a fortune.

Who is this Hammock for?

The Coalatree Loafer Packable Hammock is designed for people who need something basic yet comfortable. It’s the kind of hammock that is easily hung between trees. This means that it is of course primarily designed for camping. You do need to have trees around to use it.

Although, if you buy screw-hooks on the side, you count mount it between pillars on a porch, patio, or balcony. Keep in mind that while it can technically fit two people, it is best used by one person. This is particularly the case for a full night of sleeping.

What’s Included?

With your purchase, you get a 4.5 x 8 foot hammock made of durable parachute nylon. All of the mounting hardware to mount it between trees is included as well. Here you also get a carrying case for portability.

Overview of Features

Although not exactly a feature per se, there are four different colors to choose from here. The Coalatree Loafer Packable Hammock is technically designed to hold up to two people. If you are just lounging, then the spacious 4.5 x 8 foot design should be more than enough.

That said, for actual sleeping, the Coalatree Loafer Packable Hammock is probably best used by a single person. It is spacious enough for two, but ideal for one.

Keeping that in mind, this unit is made out of super durable parachute nylon. It’s definitely tough enough to hold two people. It has a maximum weight capacity of 450 pounds, which is not too shabby at all. It may be a simple and basic hammock, but it is quite tough.

What also stands out is how the parachute nylon used here is very soft. Most people would agree that it is very comfortable to sleep on for prolonged periods of time.

That said, beware that nylon is not the most breathable material out there. It should be perfectly fine for most situations, although you might get a bit sweaty on a hot summer night.

The Coalatree Loafer Packable Hammock does come complete with two straps and the carabiners. In other words, it comes complete with all necessary mounting hardware. Mounting this unit on a tree is very easily done and takes just a few minutes.

In terms of overall portability, the Coalatree Loafer Packable Hammock weighs just over 13 ounces. It’s more than lightweight enough to take on a camping trip. Moreover, it does fold down into a very compact package, and has its own integrated carrying case too. It can easily fit into a camping pack.

Tutorial

The only thing that you really need to know about the Coalatree Loafer Packable Hammock is how to mount it. Once again, it does come with the mounting hardware included.

All you have to do is to tie the tree straps around two trees that are an ideal length apart. Then, attach the hammock to the straps using the carabiners. Here we have included a tutorial video that shows you exactly how to go about this process.

Conclusion

The bottom line is that the Coalatree Loafer Packable Hammock is an ideal hammock for camping. It’s best for one person, but can fit two if need be. It’s also durable, lightweight, and portable, not to mention decently priced too.
