Guide Gear Portable Folding Hammock

Fold it down, take it with you, and relax wherever you go!

For the past few seasons, the Guide Gear Portable Folding Hammock has been a real crowd favorite, with hundreds of great reviews and a 4.4-star rating. Customers love its portability – it weighs just 26.45 pounds, folds up in seconds and comes with a carry bag with backpack-style straps. Despite its lightness, the steel frame provided plenty of support. The frame is eight-feet long, and the hammock itself is 7’10” long and 32” wide, plenty big enough to support its 225-pound capacity.


Guide Gear Oversized Portable Folding Hammock

Your favorite hammock, but Super-Sized!

This year, Sportsman’s Guide took the customer-favorite hammock and “super-sized” it! The Guide Gear Oversized Portable Hammock has a 350-pound capacity. The steel frame is six inches longer, and the actual hammock measurements are 8’7” long and about 41” wide. Although it’s supersized, it’s light enough for portability at 28.6 pounds – just two pounds heavier than the original.

It also comes with a backpack-style carry bag. Both the original folding portable hammock and the oversized folding portable hammock have a mesh fabric bottom to help you stay cool and you relax.

    Take it from a kid that bought a mil surp jungle hammock back in the 60s and suffered back aches while sleeping in the hammock, that you need to get a hammock that is wide enough to sleep properly ON THE DIAGONAL. I finally just put it on the ground negating the benefits of a hammock.
