There is no hammock like the Chameleon for offering comfort and easy setup for your next camping adventure. Designed for function at every level, the Chameleon is a full-featured hammock made to be completely customizable and adaptable to any environment. Because of its modular structure, you can swap out components of your Chameleon hammock setup to fit your needs. 

Features of the Chameleon Hammock

The DutchWare Chameleon hammock is sure to please beginner and seasoned campers alike with its outstanding features, comfort, and versatility. Benefits of the Chameleon hammock include:

  • CustomizableThe Chameleon is equipped with many customizable features to let you adjust for changing climates and resting conditions. Products designed for the Chameleon include the attachable nanoweave bugnet, the wind-resistant top cover, and a variety of tieouts. You can change the orientation of both the top cover and bugnet to suit your environment — simply unzip the covers and flip them over so that you can change the direction of your hammock.
  • Versatility: The zippers on the Chameleon are double-sided and will open on both sides of the bed and in both directions. DutchWare also manufactures a reversible sidecar pocket that zips to the same track as the top cover or bug net. Because you can change out components at any time, the Chameleon offers a year-round solution to all of your hammock needs. 
  • Quality materialsThe Hexon proprietary fabric that makes up the body of the Chameleon is lightweight, durable, and incredibly comfortable. Depending on your body weight, you can choose from a variety of material thicknesses for a truly customizable fit. 
  • ComfortThe Chameleon is made of ultralight material to provide you with a superior night’s sleep. 
  • AdaptabilityThe special-designed zipper lends extreme modularity to the Chameleon, making it ideal for campers who want to purchase components at a later date. With the vented top cover, you can take your Chameleon out in colder weather because it will vent out the moisture produced by your breath while creating a comfortable micro-climate. 
  • Sleep solo or with a partner: With the Chameleon’s unique beetle buckle system, you can connect two hammocks by adding a spreader bar. With this bar, you can set both beds up side by side under the same tarp and off the same two trees. Or, if you prefer to sleep solo, you can do so without altering anything on either suspension. 
  • DurableThe 1.6-ounce fabric of the Chameleon hammock is soft to the touch yet sturdy.
  • Easy to set upThe quick and intuitive suspension system of the Chameleon hammock makes it incredibly easy to assemble.

Reviewed By: Dutch (Thom Ressler) - Dutch started Dutchware after thru-hiking the entire 2,200-miles of the Appalachian Trail with a hammock. During his journey, Dutch learned that there wasn’t high-quality hammocking gear available on the market so he began to create his own.

He began manufacturing the Dutch Clip, which he invented to connect the webbing suspension around the tree. Next was the Chameleon Hammock which offers superior flexibility for hammockers. Today Dutchware sells over 1,000 outdoor gear products to provide backpackers with high-quality equipment that allows them to enjoy the outdoors with a minimalist approach.

Dutch is passionate about providing the hammocking community with the highest quality gear along with the highest quality information to ensure they have the best outdoor experience possible.
