About this project
Relax and Do Designs, or RADD for short, is a American-made recreational gear company from San Antonio, Texas, with a passion for the outdoors and making versatile and quality products. We started from a college idea that rapidly grew into a belief that gear should not only be practical, but versatile and made from quality material. This is why we sought to source high-grade materials and make our products in the United States.
OUR STORY: a college dream
We started in college with a dream to build recreational gear. From there we formed the idea of our company. We got a sewing machine on our desks and taught ourselves how to sew. We then started making prototypes out of our dorm rooms. From there RADD took off and as they say the rest is history.
THE GROM HAMMOCK: the fastest hammock
We decided to begin with a hammock that would be a simple, durable, go-anywhere hammock called The Grom…
The Grom hammock is one of the fastest, strongest, and easiest hammocks on the market. Through careful design, we built a hammock that is meant to accompany you on any adventure, whether it’s a backpacking adventure or a trip to the park.

THE RADD BAG: an easier stuffsack
We wanted to break away from the traditional middle stuff sack and introduce a design that was faster and simpler. By transitioning the bag to one side of the hammock, the hammock is able to stuff in one way, instead of struggling with the two different ends, giving fluidity and ease during setup. Just clip and pull to set up.
With its strong gear attachment points, you can keep everything you want suspended with you, allowing easy access without off-balancing your hang.
THE GECKO STRAPS: an infinite hang
Tired of the restriction of looped hammock straps and the complexity of whoopie slings, we designed a suspension systems that provided the infinite versatility that we were looking for, so we can hang almost anywhere.
- Infinite hanging points
- 10’ length
- 10 oz weight
- Steel cinch buckle
With these Gecko Straps, you can get your feet off the ground and into a hammock in under a minute at just the perfect tension. Don’t believe us? Then just check out the video below on how to setup your Grom hammock.
