Chammock Original is inspired by the natives of Philippines who knit the bamboo into a chair. Thanks to modern waxing technology, the fiber can be super light and strong. We can transform the traditional hammock chair into the most compact and easy to stow ever - Chammock Original.
The “Chammock Original” is a hammock chair with small pack size, and weight less than a can of coke. It is made from the highest quality nylon and lightweight aluminum carabiners for optimal safety. It is very easy to assemble, and only required small room to set up. Hung from trees, posts, boat masts and whatever you can find that is stable and range of 4 feet (120cm) or wider.
On “Chammock Original”, there are two pocket bags, one is on the top to stuff jacket inside as a pillow for better comfort, and the other one is on the bottom for storing the “Chammock Original” as well as storage when you sit on it. You can also stretch your arm and chat with your friends through the two holes beside.It also included one adjustment strap to adjust width between two carabiners for optimizing your comfort curve.Use it to remember your last comfort curve and replicate it..
As serious hikers, we also love hammock. However, it is not very comfortable to sit on one. When we sit on the hammock as chair, the edge of the hammock will actually press on our thigh since it is very tight when sitting on. On the other hand, it is also not going to give a good upright support.You are not going to enjoy it if having back issue.
That is why we design Chammock. It has an asymmetric cut, where the upper side is for supporting your back and the bottom side is for supporting your butt parts. You are going to feel like sitting on a real chair and it is also easier to get out of.
The ”Chammock Original” is lightweight , comfortable and easy to set up, therefore making it highly suitable for backpackers, hikers, campers or just occasional naps.
We love outdoor activities- a lot.
This idea came from one of our trips from Patagonia to Yellow stone Nation Park. We have hammocks with us, but very little chance to use it. While hiking or camping, the hammock is not very easy to set up in the wild. It needs two solid items in between 10-15 feet (300-360 cm). On the other hand, the hammock is designed for laying not for seating, you will find difficulty to sit on it to read or have a decent meal. When you sit on the hammock, your back can’t count on it. So you can only sit for a very short period of time. That is why we come up with the idea – Chammock Original.
Since we understand the size and weight really matter for those hiker and climber, we try to minimize the size and weight as much as we can. After dozen of prototypes we had tried , the final design offers not only easy assembly but also with its construction based on durable, high-quality materials.
Since it is really lightweight and compact, it can be easily set up anywhere. We usually use it during the hiking trips when you don’t really want to sit on cold stone or snow. It is also suited for reading and eating during the casual use at nearby park or even just in your own yard.

Risks and challenges
This is our first Kickstarter campaign. If Chammock Original is successfully funded, we will have to make sure everything goes according to plan to meet the promised deadline. The funding raised on Kickstarter will be used for production and manufacturing on the Chammock Original only. Although we haven’t not seen any direct risks and challenges, one thing we know for sure. Some things unexpected will comes up. We list below as these things might impact the delivery schedule.
1. Quantity – Sometimes the campaigns exceed the expectation. If we hit the high quantity, the delivery schedule may push back due to the material preparation.
2. Freight – Port closures and customs delay happen. It is very difficult to know when and for how long. We will calculate the lead time into the manufacture and delivery schedule; however it is unpredictable.
Our goal is to deliver the lightest and finest quality hammock chair to the market. We don’t compromise for quality .We’ll be sure to keep you informed and work diligently to solve the problems as soon as possible.
Thank you very much to join us for the awesome journey.
