The truly one of a kind Exped Ergo Hammock Combi delivers a horizontal sleeping position that simply isn't possible in traditional hammocks. This complete shelter system includes the hammock, a bug net, rain tarp and hanging kit.
Packing down to 18.1" x 6.7" and weighing well under 4 pounds, the Ergo Hammock Combi is a unique, versatile option for technical-oriented backpackers. Though the Ergo Hammock Combi may look intimidating at first glance, its construction actually allows for surprisingly easy set-up.
The ground-breaking hammock eliminates the "banana" sleeping position with which many hammock campers are familiar. Instead of struggling to find a comfortable position, you can climb onto the Ergo Hammock and sleep like you would anywhere else. An integrated sleeve even allows you to use a sleeping pad (sold separately) for greater warmth and comfort. Two interior pockets offer a place to store clothes, essentials and small gear items.
A mosquito net is included to keep winged pests at bay. The net zippers directly to the hammock to ensure that you remain fully protected. This also allows you to leave the net behind when conditions don't require its use.
The rain tarp suspends easily above the hammock to protect you and the hammock from the elements. Fully taped seams bolster protection and sewn-in guy out points allow for a taut pitch.
NOTE: The Exped Ergo Hammock Combi works best for users up to 6' 4".

Real Customer Reviews
- Sleeping on a cloud
Likes: Comfort, thoughtful design. The included sleeve for a pad (inflatable LW works best) makes it far easier to use and stay comfortable than a more traditional camping hammock (I started with a Hennessy 15+ years ago), particularly in cooler weather. The suspension system keeping the hammock sides more "away" from you (especially when using an inflatable pad) is also really nice and makes it feel far more roomy (and again warmer without your bag being compressed against the sides). The rain fly / tarp is HUGE and far more useful for keeping gear out of the weather than a normal (ground) tent fly.
Dislikes: Only dislikes are price and weight (and it's no heavier than a lot of 2 person tents, but if you are going ultra-light stick with a Blackbird Warbonnet or Hennessy...). This is actually my second Ergo Combi - I decided to purchase an additional one as I keep thinking of my favorite pair of hiking boots... when i wore them out (over 8-10 years) and they could no longer be repaired they were no longer made. So now I have a spare:).
- The most uncomfortable night you will ever have
Likes: This hammock is very easy to hang and the tarp is expansive and very light weight.
Dislikes: I recently spent two nights in the chilly Pacific Northwest using this hammock. I have never been as uncomfortable camping as I was in the Exped Ergo Combi Hammock. The problem it purports to solve, the banana shape that is true of nearly all hammocks, became a far worse problem. The first night, I spent 10 minutes just trying to get into my sleeping bag and hours after that of shifting around trying to find the sweet spot in which I lay almost horizontally. I spent many hours with my feet pressed against the edge of the hammock which felt like a workout rather than a position in which one could sleep. The built-in mosquito net seemed to always be on my face. Because the inner layer of fabric is smaller than the outer layer, a sleeping pad fits between them. However, finding the pad during the night and staying on it was a continual challenge. The suspension system on the sides of the hammock are unique and their design is what is supposed to allow you to lay horizontally. What they also do is create wicked wrinkles in the inner layer which I had to thrash around to try to smooth out so that they didn't feel like they were cutting me in half. Needless to say, I am going to be returning this hammock immediately.
Likes: Extended length of version 2 accommodates taller individuals. Horizontal lay design great for side and back sleepers
Dislikes: Did not come with cord holders which are absolutely necessary.
