New Haven, Mo. – ALPS Mountaineering, manufacturer of performance gear for wilderness adventures, exploration, and family camping, is excited to expand its backcountry hiking and recreational camping categories with the introduction of the company’s first hammock.
Weighing 2 pounds, the Cirrus hammock is the perfect solution for backcountry explorers looking to lighten their gear while enjoying a comfortable night’s rest. When paired with the ALPS Ultra-Light Tarp Shelter, the Cirrus hammock provides convenient off-the-ground sleeping with full protection from inclement weather — the ideal combination for warm-weather adventuring.
It is also perfect for vehicle camping or hanging in the backyard.
The Cirrus hammock is rated up to 600 pounds and has a material dimension of 9′ 10″ x 6′ 6″, so it is amply sized to accommodate all users as well as cold weather sleeping bags and under quilts. Made from recycled 210T nylon as part of the ALPS R3 sustainability initiative (Reduce • Reuse • Recycle), the Cirrus features a pair of 9′ x 1.5″ hanging straps, each with 12 loops for expanded hanging options and a pair of 5/16″ carabiners. The hammock rolls easily and compactly into its integrated storage pocket, which also serves to hold small items like flashlights, eyeglasses, and other needful items you want close at hand.
