if given a choice, we would go for hammock instead of the traditional tents. call us paranoia, but getting in bed with creepy crawlies or any form of wild life is definitely not our idea of fun in the wild. though hammock’s good, we are still bothered by the weather and the one other thing: insects that fly (and sucks blood). this is where the Nubé Hammock Shelter by Sierra Madre Research will come in handy. it is a completely fresh take on the hammock shelter system and is designed to work with any hammock to create a “safe haven” that shields you from the elements, the mozzies, and also offering an off-the-ground storage area with a 200 pounds payload.
further living up to its “safe haven” claim, the Nubé Hammock Shelter offers a generous coverage of 13 feet by 8.5 feet and is made of ripstop nylon with two coats of silicone on each side for durability and water repellence. openings, known as closure sleeves, on either side of the shelter are tightly sealed around the hammock’s suspension lines to prevent water or insects from slipping in. when you are done with your sleeping, just roll up your hammock and clip it up, and you get yourself a large sheltered picnic area. the Nubé Hammock Shelter by Sierra Madre Research is currently doing its crowdfunding thing on Kickstarter – all you need is $250 to secure yourself one. expected delivery would be January 2014.
