The SWAYY Premus™ and Eira™ are your all-in-one hammock camping systems. What started out as a bunch of crazy ideas has now come to fruition in the form of an amazing outdoor experience. Let us SWAYY you to go anywhere and do anything, outside.

The Problem

When you put a sleeping bag in the hammock with you, the insulation compresses on your backside and you get cold.
CBS - Cold Butt Syndrome
CBS - Cold Butt Syndrome

 You don't hammock camp? Let us ask a question:

The Solution

We use "Loft" technology to hang insulation lower than your bum... No more CBS (Cold Butt Syndrome). 

Loft is the ability of insulation to trap air between the fibers (synthetic insulation) or feather dander (down). Loft allows for the trapped air pockets to be warmed up. For our synthetic insulation, this is achieved by allowing the insulation to Loft without any compression below your backside. The down insulation follows the same model, it just uses a different material.

The SWAYY Premus™ and Eira™ work using 3 main layers of material. 

  • The 1st holds your weight. (Up to 400lbs!)
  • The 2nd insulates you using "loft" so that it does not compress against your backside, in essence, the insulation drapes a little lower than the hammock-body fabric (load-bearing layer). 
  • The 3rd layer is a shell that breaks the wind.

Thus we give you: 

The Premus™ is constructed using four parts.

  • The first is the weight bearing layer, or hammock body, is constructed using a 1.6oz per square yard, 40 Denier, nylon fabric with a 6-way ripstop to increase strength and durability. 
  •  The second is the insulation layer. This layer consists of two layers of Primaloft Silver 3.0oz insulation to keep opulent warmth. Each insulation layer is cut, sewn, darted and pleated in a specific way to create three specific air gaps under your backside that won't compress.
  • The third is the shell layer. This wind breaking layer is made of a .9oz per square yard, 15 Denier, nylon fabric that is designed to be lightweight and breathable enough to prevent moisture build-up.
  • The fourth and final piece is the full-length zipper. When zipped up, this allows for total warmth for the chilly nice. When unzipped, this allows for a steady warmth under your bum but keeps it cool enough for summer camping. The zipper is a #8 zipper that is strong, durable, and lightweight.

  • The CD101 cinch buckles are crafted for easy tensile adjustability of the hammock and are made using an aluminum alloy for the perfect balance of strength and weight.
  • The high-tensile strength webbing is made from a polyester and Dyneema blend. This keeps the weight and wearability low and the strength high. Our webbing is 1" wide and is 4.9g per foot.

 Entire System Tech Specs:

  • Weight Maximum: 400 lbs / 182 kg
  • Length: 10 ft (11ft for long option)

  • The first is the weight bearing layer, or hammock body, is constructed using a 1.6oz per square yard, 40 Denier, nylon fabric with a 6-way ripstop to increase strength and durability. (Up to 400lbs!)
  • The second is the insulation layer. This layer consists of 20 tubular baffles that hold 800FP DownTek storm treated goose down. Each baffle is filled with precisely 1.25oz of down.
  • The third is the shell layer. This wind breaking layer is made of a .9oz per square yard, 15 Denier, nylon fabric that is designed to be lightweight and breathable enough to prevent moisture build-up. 
  • The fourth and final piece is the full-length zipper. When zipped up, this allows for total warmth for the chilly nice. When unzipped, this allows for a steady warmth under your bum but keeps it cool enough for summer camping. The zipper is a #8 zipper that is strong, durable, and lightweight.

SWAYY Eira™ - Without Rain-Fly

 The Eira™ can be used with or without the ridgeline or rain-fly.

SWAYY Eira™
SWAYY Eira™

The Eira™ rain-fly is constructed with 4 main parts: The ridgeline (not attached to the rain-fly), the rain-fly itself, and the rain-fly quick deploy sock (above). Inside each of the four corner hems of the rain-fly, you will find a nail stake connected to the rain-fly by shock cord.

  • At 2.8 grams per foot, the ridgeline is made of 1/2" high-tensile strength polyester that yields low stretch and 500lbs of breaking strength.
  • The rain-fly is made of 2.7oz Wide Sil Nylon. It is a low stretch fabric with a ripstop grid. It has at least 1500 mm of head pressure. This fabric is a lightweight and waterproof.
  • The quick deploy sock cover is made of a 1.6oz 6-way ripstop nylon designed for ease of access to shelter when the storms come rolling in. When the sun comes out, simply place the four titanium nail stakes in their respective channels and pull the sock back to encase your shelter.
  • The 6" and 2.8g ultralight titanium nail stakes can be driven into hard soil without getting bent or damaged.

Risks and challenges

This is our very first Kickstarter campaign, and we have lots to learn, no doubt about it. When tackling anything new, we expect there may be challenges and setbacks, but rest assured we will never stop until you the job is completed! We will work around the clock to make sure we deliver, the whole 9 yards, and then some.

1) Generally, fabrics are the longest lead item in our supply chain and if the produced fabric does not meet our high-quality control specifications it will have to be redone. This could cause an unforeseen delay.

2) While we do expect to have your products to you as quickly as possible, there is always a possibility that we could run into unexpected delays. If this were to happen, and it probably will no, we will keep you updated as quickly and as often as possible.

3) If by chance we amass an unprecedented number of backers, we could experience a slight delay. However, we are confident that we can deliver!

With partners such as Primaloft® and DownTek®, we expect to carry forward in providing you with the highest of quality camping gear.

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 and support! We are founded on the principles of honesty, integrity, and giving back. We are doing everything we can to exceed your expectations, raise them, and equip you with gear that will help you encounter more!
