Cocoon : Hammocks, Tarps and Quilts - The Perfect Set Up! Product News

COCOON - long renowned for their high end, even luxurious, silk and technical fabric travel equipment, are proud to launch their "perfect set-up" hammock systems.

COCOON founder Josef is a stickler for the details, obsessive even - he has spent many hours creating and many nights testing light weight, strong and functional designs. From specially developed fabrics to material choice for cords, everything has been scrutinised to ensure that it really works and won't distract from a good night's sleep - or afternoon siesta!

Cocoon Ultralite Hammock : 240g / Pack size 17x7cm / srp £69.95

Developed specifically for this hammock, the 20 Denier Hexagonal Rip Stop Nylon fabric is light yet strong, with a tiny pack size. Much refinement has gone into the weave of the fabric to give it just the right amount of stretch to be comfortable, yet supportive.

Even the suspension cord is uniquely developed - immensely strong "ultra high molecular weight polyethylene" material is finely braded to create bomb proof suspension and ridgeline for a perfect pitch every time.

COCOON Tarp : 620g / Size 365 x 140cm / Pack Size 22 x 8.5cm / srp £134.95

The very generously sized COCOON Tarp perfectly protects hammocks of all sizes against rain and sun.

PFC Free 20 Denier Rip Stop Nylon is siliconized on one side, PU coated on the other to give a hydrostatic head of 3000mm. The finishing touches are beautifully detailed - double stitched waterproof taped seams, hidden pockets on all corners to stow away reflective pitching cords.

Under and Over Hammock Quilts

For chilly nights nothing could be better than these beautifully designed quilts - meticulous attention to details and fittings makes them easy to install and perfectly adjust.

Down Quilts : 750 Fill Power / Shell 20 Denier Nylon DWR treated PFC free / 0 - 5 degrees C Comfort Range

When weight, packsize and warmth are absolutely critical, down filling is the only choice.

Providing warmth and insulation from underneath, the COCOON Hammock Underquilt Down is the perfect hammock accessory for cold nights. Draft tubes at the top and foot end, as well as a highly adjustable suspension system help to cut out cold areas between the hammock and the underquilt. The differential cut baffle construction also helps to eliminate cold spots and guarantees maximum loft.

Under  Quilt : 660g / Pack Size 21 x 16cm / srp £189.95

The COCOON Hammock Top/Over Quilt Down is a specially designed quilt that keeps you perfectly warm and cozy in your hammock during cold nights. Zip together the bottom part of your Top Quilt to create a warm foot box and tighten the adjustable draft tube around your neck using elastic drawcords and snap fasteners. The multifunctional Top Quilt can also be used as a sleeping bag or a blanket on your camping pad

Over Quilt : 740g / Pack Size 28 x 19cm / srp £209.95

Synthetic Quilts : Pinneco Mantle filling / Shell 40 Denier Nylon DWR treated PFC free / 0 - 10 degrees C Comfort Range

For cool conditions where weight is not so critical - the highly functional 100% recycled Pinneco Mantle filling offers a rare combination of loft, compressibility and thermal efficiency.

Providing warmth and insulation from underneath, the COCOON Hammock Underquilt is the perfect hammock accessory for cooler nights. Draft tubes at the top and foot end as well as the highly adjustable suspension system help to avoid cold areas between the hammock and the underquilt. 

Under Quilt : 960g / Pack Size 26 x 22cm / srp £94.95

The COCOON Hammock Top/Over Quilt is a specially designed quilt that keeps you perfectly warm and cozy in your hammock during cold nights. Zip together the bottom part of your Top Quilt to create a warm foot box and tighten the adjustable draft tube around your neck using elastic drawcords and snap fasteners. The multifunctional Top Quilt can also be used as a sleeping bag or a blanket on your camping pad.

Over Quilt : 1090g / Pack Size 28 x 24cm / srp £104.95

COCOON Ultralight Hammock Straps : 35g per strap / pack size 10 x 4cm / srp £34.95

The critical link - super lightweight hammock tree straps made of ultra strong UHMW-PE material with integrated "whoopie slings".

 Such a delight to use - "whoopie slings" easily and rapidly cinch up and lock off using the acient principle of the "Chinese Finger Trap" - one end of the sling passes internally through the other end - under load the outer side tightens and grips tightly around the inner. To release, simply unload and make your escape!

Maximum capacity 70 kg per strap or 140 kg per pair of straps.
