About this project
The Nubé Stratos™ is a lightweight modular hammock shelter that perfectly integrates layers of protection from rain, wind, and insects for you and your gear!
The Nubé Stratos™ incorporates the innovation found in our All-In-One Nubé Hammock Shelter (launched on Kickstarter), with a modular twist! The Nubé Stratos™ consists of two QuikConnect™ layers that create a dynamic and innovative modular hammock shelter system. The Stratos™ is adaptable to suit any environment by allowing you to choose which layers are appropriate for your location. The Nubé Stratos's™ asymmetric design simplifies set up by requiring only 4 ground stakes and eliminating the need for tent poles. The Nubé Stratos™ allows you the freedom to camp over any terrain; placing your camping hammock in a cloud of protection with wide unobstructed views of the space between the earth and sky.
The Nubé Stratos's™ multi layered protection can be segmented into the base layer, the StratoShield™, and the external layer, the StratosFly™.
The StratoShield™ is the base layer of protection against insects and it can suspend up to 100 pounds of gear within arms reach! The StratoShield™ utilizes the first-ever, 3-dimensional AirGap™ design to give you the most spacious interior, superior insect protection, and a flat panel roof that opens up unparalleled views of the sky above!
The StratosFly™ is the external layer of protection and offers extreme rain and wind protection in an asymmetric lightweight design! The asymmetric design yields unparalleled protection, visibility, and ergonomic entry/exit.
The StratosFly's™ asymmetric wings create an excellent view / entry / exit point, while anchoring the system securely to the ground. This design gives you the right amount of protection, exactly where you need it!
The StratosFly™ and StratoShield™ use SMr's patented Sky Hook™ innovation to enable versatile setups for a wide variety of distances and create an aerodynamic structure that deflects wind and keeps you dry or bug free. By pulling tension from the center rather than the end, your set up distance is now determined by you not your rain fly! We went a step further and added Interior Sky Hooks, so you can use a ridgeline for organization or to QuikConnect™ your StratoShield within seconds!
SMr's patented Closure Sleeves™ seal around your hammock suspension lines prohibiting the transfer of water to your hammock. The StratoShield™ Closure Sleeves™ seal around your hammock ends keeping all unwanted insects out of your domain.
In an effort to increase the view of the outdoors we created the T-Lock™ system that locks your trekking pole into the wing and gives you a porch style viewing area of your beautifully wild surroundings.
We invented Pocket Locks™ and Line Locks™ because who likes untangling knotted up rope!? Keep all your lines clean and organized for fast deployment every time you need it!
With our color coded QuikConnect™ system the StratosFly™ can be attached to the StratoShield™ or vice versa within seconds, increasing your external layer of waterproof protection or your insect/gear protection as needed.
The 3D AirGap™ design for the StratoShield™ is unprecedented in spacious interior and insect protection, add in the 100lbs of elevated gear storage to keep your equipment accessible and you have a real recipe for outdoor comfort!
The pass through S-Curve doors were ergonomically designed for the perils of entering and exiting a camping hammock! Easy entry and exit from either side.
Let's face it, we love our gear... Be good to your gear, keep it elevated and out of the mud and give yourself instant access to everything you brought with the StratoShield™ Gear Stash™!
Risks and challenges
With the successful launch and fulfillment of our Nubé Hammock Shelter in 2013, we have learned a lot about what it takes to design, launch, manage, and deliver a Kickstarter project. We have tried diligently to minimize your risks in launching these products, by thouroughly testing and evaluating the design and materials of these products. Partnering with "Best in Industry" suppliers and manufacturers gives us the confidence to push forward and forecast delivery dates for these products. As always the challenge is not knowing what you do not know, we always anticipate the possibility of a problem arising - and fortunately SMr is made of creative problem solving people that don't take no for an answer. We are dependent on several other companies staying in business and doing their job well - so with the launch of new products we sure do appreciate your patience! Our policy is honesty, transparency, and customer service in every aspect of our business. You make this happen and we will do everything we can to exceed your expectations.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
