A hammock is all about indulgence. Unfortunately, people with bad backs often are unable to indulge themselves for nearly long enough to experience a quality hammock's unparalleled relaxation potential.
That's because even the best traditional-style hammock offers no real support for the lower back. So even as you're suspended there in what ought to be effortless hammock bliss, you instead inevitably start to feel that telltale twinge of discomfort in your irritable back. And just like that, real relaxation is shot to pieces.
The Hatteras Hammocks Pillowtop Hammock could very well be the reclining relaxation that's for so long eluded you! Propped atop its bountiful, firm pillows, you suddenly become aware of something outright incredible: Your angry back isn't saying so much as a word!
Wow, huh? You'd forgotten just how good true relaxation could feel …
The Hatteras Hammocks® Spring Bay Stripe Pillowtop Hammock is two layers of our own proprietary, industry-leading synthetic DuraCord® fabric lockstitched into seven individual horizontal pillows atop a thick center of nonabsorbent polyester hollowfill fiber manufactured from recycled plastic drink bottles. The top fabric layer is the Spring Bay Stripe pattern; the bottom and side-binding are a solid neutral color.
DuraCord® itself is fast-drying, and resistant to rot, mold, mildew and staining, as well as being remarkably colorfast, with a softness on par with cotton.
The fabric bed is framed by two thick spreader bars of richly hued, deeply grained unfinished South American cumaru, among the hardest, densest, prettiest woods on Earth. Often called Brazilian teak, cumaru naturally ages to a stately silver-gray.
Chains and hanging hardware are handsome, rust-resistant zinc-plated steel.
The ropes attaching the hanging hardware to the hammock bed are also DuraCord®; we precision-wind all of our own rope ourselves, to exceed even the U.S. military's exacting specifications for strength.
Not only is the craftsmanship of our hammocks the highest level of quality, but we also choose the highest quality outdoor fabrics as well. We use our in-house brand DuraCord® Fabric. DuraCord fabric is a leading fabric in the outdoor industry made from 100% solution dyed acrylic. Solution-dyed acrylic, which means the fibers of the fabric are dyed in color before they are woven into the fabric. DuraCord is not only fast-drying but is also resistant to rot, mold, mildew, and staining.
Our own proprietary solution-dyed synthetic blend of rope, DuraCord, blends the softness of cotton with the durability of polyester. Made in the Carolinas, this combination yields a rope that has excellent color steadfastness and superior feel. DuraCord is dyed when spun, producing a rope that is colored all the way through. Like a carrot when sliced open, DuraCord has the same color on both the inside and the outside. Our DuraCord rope is the densest rope on the hammock market at 85 ft./lb., this results in less stretching and increased support when relaxing in your hammock.
Cumaru Spreader Bar
A Brazilian hardwood similar to teak, Cumaru, is 5 times harder and denser than pine, cedar, and redwood. Exclusive to Hatteras Hammocks, our Cumaru hardwood has a history of outstanding outdoor performance. Even after years of use, our Cumaru hardwood ages naturally to a beautiful silver grey without losing any of its durability. Our Cumaru Spreader bars are a full 1 inch thick, compared to most other competitor’s spreader bars that measure at ⅞ inch. A thicker spreader bar allows more holes for rope, allowing the hammock bed to sit firmly on the hammock. Our spreader bars also feature countersink drilled holes. Countersink drilling is a technique that uses a trumpet drill bit that produces a hole with no hard angles, allowing the rope to pass through without any sharp edges to wear the rope.
Rolled Rim Grommets with Spur Washers
We are very particular with every aspect of our hammocks even down to the grommets on all our fabric hammocks. Every grommet we use has tiny spurs on the back of the connecting washer forcing part of the fabric into the lip of the grommet itself, creating a more secure bond. We have also experimented with making the fabric around the grommet stronger by sewing an “X” on the fabric before placing the grommet, by adding that extra stitching it gives those tiny spurs more fabric to grip onto. The industry standard, however, is the telescoping grommet, which our testing has shown rips lose from fabric before the rolled-rim grommet every time.
Made from recycled soda bottles, our polyester fiberfill is stuffed between two layers of durable fabric. The recycled fiberfill is non-absorbent, allowing water to drain easily and provide quick dying. Our goal is to repurpose recyclable materials as much as possible and leave a smaller carbon footprint.
We plate all our hanging hardware with Zinc Plated Coating, including both tree hooks that come standard with our hammocks. The zinc plated coating prevents the accumulation of rust and ensures a longer outdoor life. Our very own One-piece ring-knot and chain, a product of years of development, permanently attaches the chain to the O-ring. This produces a hammock that is more durable and most importantly makes it impossible to lose the chain.
