KickstartersLloyd Vogel

This week on Kickstarter... rapid deploy hammocks, Kenyan running shoes, portable hammock stands, and bike chain lubricators

 

A frequent project launcher on Kickstarter, GO! is out with a new hammock. Designed for ease of setup and convenience of features, the GO! Hammock 2.0 comes with a preinstalled ridgeline, fabric tensioning system, rapid deployment bag, and aluminum carabiners. A really solid all around hammock, we've enjoyed the GO! products we've tried in the past.

In 2015 we launched our first product, the GO! Hammock on Kickstarter. Now we’re back for our eighth project. The GO! Hammock was the product that began it all for us and now we’re excited to announce the GO! Hammock version 2.0.  We’ve kept all of the features that made the original so comfortable, durable, portable and popular, while making some big improvements.

  • Hammock Length: 11 feet
  • Hammock Width: 70 inches
  • Packed Size: 9" X 5" X3"  (loosely packed and easily compresses to a smaller size)
  • Weight of GO! Hammock 2.0 only: 15 oz.
  • Total Weight w/ Included Accessories:  1lb. 4 oz. (Includes: Hammock, 2 Carabiners, 2 Rope Loops, 1 Rapid Deployment Bag, 1 Ridgeline, 1 Fabric Tensioning System)
  • Hammock Fabric: 70D High Tenacity Nylon 
  • Rapid Deployment Bag Fabric: Waterproof 70D Polyester w/ Polyurethane Coating 
  • Max Weight: 400 lbs.

Intended for easier and longer runs, the Enda Lapatet is designed for a midfoot strike. Infused with "little whispers of Kenya," the Enda Lapatets are a great option as an everyday runner.  

A daily trainer designed to take you through most of your weekly mileage with comfort and style. It’s a shoe born in the highlands of Kenya, with long winding dirt roads serving as our laboratory. 

 
  
  

No trees nearby but still looking to hang? The Hang Solo is a 12lbs aluminum frame that sets up in right under 5 minutes. While not great for lugging around long distances, it does seem fun for casual hangs, backyards, parks, or really any place where you couldn't normally hang. 

With portability and simplicity in mind, our engineers went to work to try to design a minimalist hammock stand that could be easily be taken anywhere. After a year of prototyping, we've finally manufactured and tested a hammock stand we're proud of and are ready to share with the rest of the world.  

We're excited to share the first portable hammock stand designed to be used in conjunction with most hammock camping gear that's readily available on the market. By providing a lightweight and durable frame, the Hang Solo is the ultimate hammock stand made to be taken anywhere.
