What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

 Those ‘Once-In-A-Lifetime’ Moments

Adventuring in the great outdoors comes with moments that make you want to collapse to your knees and absorb the scenery for as long as you possibly can. The grace of a sunrise over the mountains, the complexity and elegance of a rushing river, and the green valley you stumble across on the way creates a moment unlike any other. These are the kind moments you burn the map and begin to label it ‘home.’

 Those ‘Kick It Back’ Moments

You already know these moments. The one after a long week of work, the one after that calculus exam, the one after that hike up the steepest trail you’ve ever seen, and sometimes it’s even the moment when the stress can only be fixed with a cool breeze and the sound of nature. These are the moments when you care a whole lot less and escape a whole lot more.

 Those ‘Sunday’ Moments

Some of the greatest moments of your life are the ones you spend with your family. Whether it’s that time you had a picnic at the park, the time when the kids jumped off the dock into the lake, and even those moments when you just know that there is no possible way that anyone can be as happy as you are right here, right now. It’s these moments that will never fade.

Whether it’s a night out under the stars, a day out by the water, a weekend camping trip, or just some back-yard leisure with a good book and good company, the Troika Outdoors™ Hammock is the perfect piece of any moment.

 Why us and not them?

The average, leading three-point hammock brand weighs an astounding 16 pounds. Ours? 15 ounces (less than 4 pounds with straps).

Unlike traditional two-point hammocks, your Troika Hammock is mounted with high tension. For example, a traditional hammock tends to automatically wrap itself around your body, leaving you in a claustrophobic cocoon. To get around this, your arms, legs, and/or feet must hang off or rest on the edges to keep the hammock edges down. When you lay sideways or diagonal on a traditional hammock, you're holding down the edges with the back of your neck and your thighs, causing unnecessary stress and creating a less relaxed feel. Your Troika Hammock eliminates that stress, allowing you to relax your limbs, rather than use them for support, and keep you up and out in the open air and allowing you to move around freely and unrestricted. 

Hammock-tents have far too many attachments, complicated instructions, and travel cases so big that you might as well bring a stroller. Ours packs up smaller than a football, which means you'll have more room for other necessities.

Your Troika Hammocks stack on top of each other using the same support straps, allowing the upper hammock to double as a rainfly or a sunshade. This simple and unique feature creates a 'roof' for protection, while still avoiding the claustrophobic sensation of a two-point hammock.

The three rings on each corner of your Troika Hammock provide an incredibly easy way to support your hiking gear. Instead of placing your gear on the ground, you can conveniently hang it on the hammock using any clip, ring, or carabiner. This allows you to keep your items off the ground, away from the elements, and by your side.

The setup of your Troika Hammock differs greatly from the setup of a traditional two-point hammock. With a traditional hammock, the support straps must be suspended from, or around, branches to keep the hammock off the ground and prevent the straps from sliding down the tree. With your Troika Hammock, no branches are needed. The high tension allows you to use even the slipperiest fixed objects, such as a smooth street lamp or an indoor support beam, to support the hammock without the worry of slipping and losing ground clearance.

 Unique Features

  • Lightweight
  • Thirteen different colors to choose from
  • Extra hammocks double as a rainfly/sunshade
  • Mounts to ANY three fixed objects within a 30ft distance from one another
  • Gear attaches to support rings

  • High tension platform

 How It's Made

Our patent-pending hammocks are made from some of the strongest, most reliable, and most lightweight materials out there. From the nylon 70D base and heavy duty webbing borders to the nylon threading, our hammocks are built for strength, safety, and longevity.

 Easy Set-Up

All you need is your Troika Outdoors™ Hammock and three fixed objects within 30 feet from each other for a proper setup. The provided straps are easy to use and eco-friendly, leaving ZERO footprint.

Your Troika Outdoors™ Hammock is 56 inches wide and 8 feet long, providing plenty of room to move around and adjust positions freely and unrestricted.

 Pick a color that fits your style.

The Troika Outdoors™ Hammock comes in thirteen different colors, including camouflage, which is more color options than any other hammock that we have see on the market. We wanted to give you the option to pick a color that fits your style.

 Backing Our Project Isn’t the End  

We are delighted to announce that for EVERY Troika Outdoors™ Hammock sold, we will have a tree planted in your honor. We want you to know that we care about our home and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to do our part on a global scale.

Our Plan for Success 

We have been working on a plan for years and we are happy to inform you that we are going to make them easily available to everyone who wants them. We need your help to get our patent pending design up into mass production and send them around the world! We are also pleased to tell you that your Troika Outdoors™ Hammock will be made in the USA!

Risks and challenges

The Challenge

The first batch, like all future batches, of Troika Outdoors™ Hammocks are handmade to withstand incredible strength to maintain safety above everything. Although because they are handmade by a small team of us, we can only make them so fast. Because of this, we need your help to mass-produce them to keep up with the number of orders.

We urge you to rest easy, because we are prepared for a large order number and we have a plan B, C, and D for any order amount that we cannot handle by ourselves.

We also want you to know that this project is top-priority to us. We will do whatever it takes to make our customers happy.
