What could be better than peacefully lounging outdoors in a hammock suspended from the trees? Making that hammock a hot tub! That's precisely what the designers of the Hydro Hammock have done, combining two of the best forms of relaxation into one ultimate product. The Hydro Hammock is also more eco-friendly, portable and affordable than traditional hot tubs.
Hot tubs can utilize hundreds of gallons of water, need regular maintenance, and require the use of often-harsh chemicals – not so easy on the environment or the user. The durable Hydro Hammock, however, only needs 20 gallons for a top quality bath, yet can hold up to 50 gallons and the weight of two adults for stellar hot-tub-style relaxation. The optional LPG gas or electric water heater provides the warmth, and is so compact it can be checked on a plane. The designers hope to release a solar water heater model soon, for extra enviro-friendly points.
Not only can the Hydro Hammock be suspended in the air, it can also fit into pockets in the snow or sand, making for a family fun day at the beach or up in the mountains. The multi-functionality does not stop there, as it can also be converted into an outdoor shower unit, boasting an incredibly efficient 2 hour shower which uses less than 3 gallons of water. The designers currently have a Kickstarter campaign and are well on their way to meeting their goal to advance their products, yet you can snag one of their models on their website right now.
