If you’re an avid camper, you know that getting a good night’s sleep is essential to enjoying your outdoor adventure. However, sleeping on the ground in a tent can be uncomfortable and inconvenient.

That’s where the Helsdon Hammock comes in. Designed carefully over many years by Canadian nature and camping enthusiast Dave Helsdon, the Helsdon Hammock is designed for the human body.

It provides maximum comfort, stability, and all-weather protection, making it the perfect solution for anyone who loves to sleep in the great outdoors. But you don’t have to be a hardcore camper to enjoy its benefits: it’s also great for the cottage and backyard, either for extra sleeping quarters or a bug-free afternoon nap.

“I invested so much time, effort and money in designing this hammock tent for a few reasons,” explained founder Helsdon. “Comfort, a smaller footprint, the ability to set up in places that are impossible for a tent, and privacy: no need to sleep next to someone who snores or who doesn’t want to sleep next to me for the same reason.”

The Helsdon Hammock is designed with the human body in mind. It adjusts to your body’s shape and supports your knees and lower back. You can even sleep on your side or stomach. This is a game-changer for everyone who finds it difficult to get comfortable in a regular hammock, like Helsdon himself.

The Helsdon Hammock is incredibly stable, thanks to its low centre of gravity and spreader bars that are integral to the “suspension bridge” design. You won’t ever have a sense of losing your balance in a Helsdon Hammock.

Setting up the Helsdon Hammock is a breeze. You can do it in less than two minutes; all you need are two trees. You don’t have to worry about finding flat, dry land to pitch a tent, and you don’t have to deal with rocks, roots, puddles, mud, rain, or bugs. The Helsdon Hammock is like sleeping on air, which is a dream come true for anyone who has ever had a restless night’s sleep in a regular tent.

The Helsdon Hammock is also all-weather proof. It’s rainproof, bug-proof, and provides maximum comfort no matter what the conditions are like outside. The double bottom fits any sleeping pad (up to 28” wide) to insulate you from below and keep you warm, and the integrated bug-shielded windows ventilate you to keep you cool. You and your gear are safe from moisture, mice, and bugs, and rain will never be an issue for your outdoor sleeping again.

The Helsdon Hammocks are built to last and promote a healthy and environmentally friendly lifestyle, and it’s a product that anyone who loves to sleep outdoors should consider investing in. The next time you’re planning a camping trip, consider leaving the tent at home and trying out the lifetime-covered Helsdon Hammock instead.
