Boulder, CO; Announced on the first day of the OutDoor show in Friedrichshafen, Germany, Sea to Summit has received that show’s prestigious INDUSTRY AWARD in the camping category for their new Ultralight Hammock. Like many of their products that enter an established category, Sea to Summit has re-imagined the hammock to be much lighter, more compact and easier to use than anything before it.

The internationally recognized and highly coveted OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD presented to Sea to Summit was one of just 37 outstanding innovative products selected (from 343 entries) during 2016. 

The Ultralight Hammock is made from a specifically developed high-tensile 20D monofilament nylon fabric that is extremely compressible, very strong, highly breathable and ultra-lightweight, weighing only 5 ounces. The Jury stated, “What a phenomenal strength-to-weight ratio: 135kg [297 lb] strength capacity and only 140 grams [5 ounces]”.

Tim Miller, the product’s designer, described his approach, “We wanted to improve the experience of using a hammock. We looked at what we hadn’t seen in the hammocks we’d used over the years. How could we make it easier to set up with lighter weight hardware, could we make it more breathable and therefore more comfortable to sleep in and how could we make the packed size impressively small. The Ultralight Hammock is the realization of those design aspirations."
