Wow you'd have to be 3 feet tall to really use it and then you would still be curled up. I think I would rather take my hammock and a good strap and tie it to a tree or big rock.

Looks to me like someone found a new use for a Spidershade.

Spider Shade vs. Jammock

Hi, I'm the inventor of the Jammock. It's actually quite comfortable for most folks. I've had everyone from a 2 year old to to a guy who is 6' 3" on it and everyone in between. They've all been comfortable. That said, it's not really designed for overnighting, it's there for casual use for an hour or two. The Jammock is also more versatile than the Spider Shade, it offers limited water resistance, sun shade, is load-bearing (obviously), and can be used as a wind deflector and lounge chair above your spare tire. It's tough and way more robust than it probably needed to be, but I wanted to engineer a high-quality product that people would have no reservations about getting 6' in the air.

Well the question that I have to ask: can 2 people fit in it?

@RepoMan73: Working load limit is 350 lbs.
@Bravo Tango: Yes, two can fit. Check out the pics at: Photos - Jammock: it's a hammock for your Jeep. to see it fit 1, 2, and 4 adults.

Well darn it, I just bought a hammock last week. Looks like I'd better return it...

I've got the same jeep they've used in the pictures and I like the tan color. Dirty Dog netting can be used as a hammock but does not really add any sun/wind protection. Their sunscreens are $80, but only come in black. Really torn on getting something like the Jammock or holding out for coverage over both front & back seat passengers.

The Jammock has a smooth hand to it, not 5" spaced webbing that can catch an elbow, knee, or worse...The Jammock can be used on 3 different places on your Wrangler (top, behind the front seat, and on the rear roll bars), so it's more versatile. Try laying on the Dirty Dog Netting vs. the Jammock and feel the difference.

Jammocks are made in USA (Washington state) and Jammock, LLC, is veteran owned.

On a four door Wrangler Unlimited, could you fit two Jammocks on it? One above the front seat and one above the rear?

I don't think the soundbar would allow it. However, you can put a Jammock above the front seats and use another as a lounger on the rear roll bars over the spare. I plan on doing a demo in Maryland next week if you'd like to see.

How about posting up to youtube? The previous poster is in Nevada (according to the profile) and though I'm in VA it's still pretty far away to see a demo. You might want to join the Vendor spotlight Vendor Spotlight! Great Deals for Members. - Jeep Wrangler Forum, just look to Defiant Systems thread on his custom mirrors for going doorless to see the success that could be had there. Run a special going into the winter for Forum members, I bet you get a ton of response... just an idea.

I guess nothing more came from this? Would love to see a video. I am in Maryland don't get me wrong, but just starting out on my jeep. For me this would be a luxury expense rather then a need expense and thus thrown to the bottom of the list.

But it is still awesome!

VTJohn: I live in VA. If you live near DC and want a demo, let's set one up. I'll drive.

Wifey bought a tan spidershade for the Jeep ( I like to think it was for me, but she wanted the sun off our 5 year old this Spring), but I do appreciate the offer. I think you'll go far with the product, would be cool to have for watching fireworks July 4th...

I don't have a video, but I have a picture gallery. And yes, it is perfect for fireworks or just relaxing with your honey.

We had a winner in our Jammock Spring Contest! Jim from New York posted a great picture of himself carrying his beautiful bride over his running boards and into a new life of trails and mud. Check it out at our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jammo...51951441504657

Digging this thread back up - I finally had a chance to get out and enjoy the warm weather over the weekend, and brought my Jammock me. My buddy got one as well after I told him about it, and I wanted to share some thoughts.

Basically, it's awesome. Yeah, you could bring a folding chair or regular hammock. But there's something much more enjoyable about being able to climb up on top of the Jeep and just hang out in the sun. It installs ridiculously easily, just takes a couple of minutes, and then it stays in place. Acts as a great sunshade while still keeping the open air feel. Not much more that needs to be said - it's just really comfortable, super simple, and very convenient. It's not a full sized hammock, and I never expected to be able to spend an entire night in it, but it's more than comfortable enough to take a nap in or just relax for a while. James (the inventor) was great to deal with as well, USPS had a bit of a snafu and he sent a new one out no questions asked.





Some action shots of getting in. Note the cargo rack - he said it was actually comfortable up there draped over the rack, or you can just stretch out parallel to the Jeep and it's still nice!

Yeah, I know, but it's better to err on the side of caution and not presume too much. It goes against the Army maxim: "It's better to ask for forgiveness than for permission," but what can I say, I've matured. I'll post this evening. Thanks!
