It even comes with a small pouch that makes transporting it on your next camping or beach trip that much easier.

With the official start to summer mere days away, it's time to time to get serious about planning a camping trip — or just finding a place to while away hazy, lazy afternoons. If you really want to make the most of the fine, fine weather coming our way over the next few months, you won't want to miss this deal on one of Amazon's most popular hammocks: the Wise Owl Outfitters Hammock.

This mega-popular hammock can be effortlessly strung up any place with trees or between two sturdy posts. Can you say summer relaxation?

Why is this a good deal? 💰

Well, for this color and size combination, this is the lowest price we've seen since late 2022. That's a perfect price, just in time for summer. There are a few cheaper options, but they're for the smallest size and aren't on sale.

Why do I need this? 🤔

The hammock comes in multiple sizes — for one (108 x 54 inches) or two people (120 x 78 inches) — and 19 colors (crimson! navy! yellow!). Made entirely of sturdy parachute nylon, it's lightweight (just 24 ounces) and folds up to the size of an eggplant.

As for installation? That's super-easy, too — it comes with 9-foot straps that you can tie to any tree. Plus, five separate loops make it a piece of cake to adjust the height, keeping you as close or as far away from the ground as you'd like. Wise Owl products are designed in the USA, and the brand is family-owned and -operated. No wonder shoppers rave about their quality and easy setup.

What reviewers say 💬

More than 42,000 people have given this hammock a glowing review.

Pros 👍

One customer shared that this was an excellent way to get in on the fun: "This has been hands down one of my favorite purchases on Amazon. I have always seen people hammocking in various places and I always wondered what the hubbub was about, but now I know! This hammock is not only stylish and durable, but it [is] most importantly affordable. Even with no prior experience, setup was a breeze, and after a couple of practice setups, you would think that I have been doing it my whole life."

Other shoppers can't imagine themselves going camping again without the lightweight hammock in tow: "My husband and I love our double hammock," shared one reviewer. "We’ve been wanting to buy a hammock for years and finally pulled the trigger when we went glamping this year. We used the hammock so much that weekend, I honestly can’t imagine going camping again without it."

This shopper even recommends it for overnight snoozes: "I've never liked sleeping in a tent. I'm always too hot, and it's stuffy in there, and all the nylon, plus the weight and the setup ... no thanks. So, for a recent two-night hike I thought I'd try a hammock. After doing some research, I settled on the Wise Owl Outfitters Single Hammock. I'm a convert for life! It's lightweight, easy to set up, sturdy and comfortable."

Cons 👎

Users warn that this thing is too addictive. "The only downside is that I can't get my daughter out of it so I can use it." Seriously, though; some shoppers say the "rope can be a bit short."

Make sure you place the hammock somewhere it can get plenty of ventilation, too. "The only complaint I would have is that the material isn't very breathable in super hot weather."

With a whopping 19 different colors and four different sizes to choose from, there's an option to suit every taste and style.
