Anybody buy a Jammock? Like it?

I'm thinking of getting a Jammock (a hammock for the jeep). They sell them for about $130, anyone buy one and if so how do you like it? I'm 6'1'' 225lbs, for those that own one do you think i'd fit comfortably in one? And last question, is there somewhere or something to lay your head on, in the pics it looks like everyone is leaning thier head forward. Link below:

I have one now, it's been about two weeks. Works great as a sun shade and doubles as a hammock! Win win!

If you're gonna buy one go w ET where you linked to, and google the $10 off $100 code that's out there. Best deal.

Where is yours installed? Back seat of a JKU? I have one but have not put it on yet... when I was laying it out I couldn't find a good spot to get it spread out width wise as much as I wanted. In the front it was too narrow and felt like the cords would break the plastic piece up front. In the back the sound bar was in the way. Also, when you install it you just run the cords over the bar then under and back across the jeep into the clip on the opposite side? If so is it in the way w/ passengers in the back (or front)?

I used their web page for install instructions, no potential to break plastic. I can only use it in the front. If you don't like that maybe you need to try it on the back tailgate area bars?

It was the first thing I bought after getting my jeep a few months back and it was the best decision I've made! It's great for naps at the campsite and hanging out by the lake. Plus, if there's two things that girls love it's hammocks and jeeps, combine the two and you're the real winner lol

That looks like a great idea. I think I'll have my wife make one. I'm sure she can do it for *way* less than $140! I'm guessing one hour, tops, including taking measurements.

Sheesh. I really, really, really, really need to get into the aftermarket Jeep accessory racket. There seems to be a bottomless bucket of money people will throw at it.

Have at it. But are you going to have her start sewing you shirts instead of buying them at the store now too? JoAnn fabrics is a good source of material. Maybe have her build a table for you from Home Depot acquired wood? Way cheaper than Ashley...

Yes the guy is making a margin on it, everything you buy someone is making a margin. He does deliver a solid quality product.

My wife DOES make me shirts, if I want one with something different than I can get at a store. She has made me many bike jerseys, works shirts with custom pockets, etc. The difference is that shirts aren't sold at a 500% markup over raw material costs unless you are in the mode of buying for the logo. A shirt is way more difficult to make than this hammock, too.

The material for this hammock can be had 48" wide for $8 a yard. Two yards = $16. The straps and hardware add maybe $5. That is a hell of a markup. More power to him, but you just made my point. I need to find some easy to make item with a 500% markup, too. I'll get right on it.

There are other Jeep things that fall into the same category. More power to someone who can make 500% on something, I just need to be one of them, since Jeep owners have no problem bleeding cash out for random stuff. Thinking...thinking... I've got it! Paracord handles! $2 worth of paracord and 15 minutes = $40!

Only practical for pre-teens and midgets, me thinks. Feet hanging off on the side looks like the most uncomfortable thing ever. Plus, getting up there looks to be a PITA.

Yes when you lay in it there is some give as the buckles adjust a bit and the sides come in towards each other a bit. Just once done pull on the straps to tighten and you're good to go. It's prob not at taught as a spider shade but i don't have any problems with it.

It's quite comfortable. Another way they use it is on the rear bars:

Thanks

Jeepers: Thanks for all the love, and thanks for the constructive criticism. If you have any other questions, I'll be happy to answer. We do have margins, but right now that margin is 10% less because we're having a summer sale. We have also had a Wrangler Forum discount of 10% for the past year (coupon code: WF10%). Again, thanks for the words.

James

I bought mine about a month ago before you changed it. Glad you caught on that the other site was undercutting you.

I just got my Jammock and used it tonight. It's very comfy, I brought my radio and pillow out and was all set, very glad I got it. It worked but I think I installed it wrong. I wrapped it around the two door plastic/metal screws, but in the pictures it doesn't look like its wrapped around them. I know it goes around the roll bar but where exactly to you connect the straps?

They say on the website not to use it while the vehicle is in motion.

What in the world is the possible use for this? Looks uncomfortable as all hell. Why would you want to lay on top of your Jeep, in a hammock that doesn't fit you? Kooky!
