The Chameleon adapts to your needs and is the only hammock you need for every situation. The specially-designed zipper allows you to remove the bug net to go without or replace it with a vented top cover. With the vented top cover, you can take your Chameleon into colder temperatures because it creates a micro climate yet still vents out the moisture produced by your breath. With many hammocks on the market today, you have to buy all the components with your original purchase. One of the beauties of the Chameleon is that it is very modular and you can purchase components at a later date. Buy the hammock body today, when the bugs come out, buy the bugnet; when winter hits, buy the top cover. If you have the bugnet and top cover already and your loved one wants to come with you on a hike, all you have to do is buy another body and one person can use the top cover and another can use the bug net. If you liked the Dallas Cowboys last year and have a blue top cover and this year they are on a losing streak you can just get a black one and be a Raiders fan. Additionally, we have many auxiliary components that you can buy to expand your hammock. From peak shelves to bottle holders, you will be able to bling out your hammock to make it individually yours. Once the Kickstarter is completed, our business model is to stock every item so you can purchase them and have them shipped out immediately. No more waiting for a month or two to get your hammock or component. So no matter which direction you sleep in, no matter what the temperature is outside, no matter how many bugs are outside, whether you are alone or with a friend, you will have the perfect hammock every time.

When you sleep in a hammock, you want to position yourself diagonally so you get a flatter lay. With the patent pending zipper, you can flip over the top cover or bugnet so you can lay in a different diagonal direction. This is not only important to give you the freedom to lay in the direction you desire, but the Chameleon will also enable you to match up with another Chameleon hammock to essentially create a two person hammock that uses the same trees and tarp.

If you’re going out hiking or just using the Chameleon to lounge in the back yard, beach, or the park, the bugnet or top cover is completely removable. This means you don’t have to carry any more weight than you need for any given adventure.

When there are bugs, the Chameleon has you covered. With our special nanoweave bugnet, even the smallest biting, stinging, disease-carrying parasite will be kept safely away. The zip on bugnet is everything you desire. Light, durable, and with great visibility, our detachable bugnet keeps you from being eaten alive.

Don’t let a dropping thermometer keep you from enjoying the great outdoors. Our vented top cover will go in place of the bugnet on the same zipper track. The fabric is our proprietorially-designed ARGON 90. It is breathable yet wind resistant. It will help keep your body heat in, creating a micro-climate inside your cocoon of warmth. The vent is designed to not only allow the moisture of your breath to exhaust, but also to give you a window into the world.

We put a lot of thought and effort into the functionality of the Chameleon. The modular design of this hammock allows you to add additional products, some of which we haven’t even fully designed yet. The Chameleon is 11 feet long as the standard model and you don’t have to pay extra and it isn’t an upgrade. There is no such thing as too much of a good thing when it is this good. This will give you more room and a larger sweet spot for a flatter lay. Those who know hammocks, know size matters.

The Chameleon comes with a unique tie out system. The secret to getting a good flat lay in a hammock is to lie diagonally. There are adjustable tie outs at your head and feet to give you the required symmetrical shape for a comfortable sleeping position. There are two on each side that are adjustable from inside the hammock providing more tension to keep the bugnet off of your face. Also, these tie outs are movable so that when you want to change the direction, you simply unsnap them from the D-rings and move them to the other set.

The Patent Pending vision zipper is a toothed, rather than coiled, zipper for ease of use and strength. The vision zipper is the key to this hammock and why the Chameleon outperforms every other hammock on the market today. Our zipper is the first one of its kind and starts with a toothed zipper such as you will find on high end jackets versus a weaker coil zipper. There are two zipper pulls that can be positioned at any place for easy access. The zippers are opposing so they open in between and most importantly you don’t have to reach to the top of the hammock to open it. Furthermore, the vision zipper can be flipped over and reversed, this enables you to flip the top cover or bugnet over or around so you can lay in any direction. We made each Chameleon with two of these specialized zippers so you can enter/exit the hammock from both sides and you can reach out to adjust your underquilt easily from inside the hammock. Lastly, since the zippers are separating, you can go with any top to save weight, add a top cover or bugnet in the same zipper track and only have to carry what is needed on your adventure. This is how your Chameleon changes to your environment.

    Question

    Jeffrey Chambers

    Can you give more information on the Chameleon Wide Body please? I would like to know the direrence between this one and the regular Chameleon. I would also like to know if the bug nets and top covers I already own will work with the wide? I purchased a Chameleon last year with all of the extras you had at the time. I am a bigger guy at 6’3′, 300 lbs and think the wide might be a little more comfortable.

    1. how much wider is it from the other?
    2. How much additional weight is it?
    3. Will the bug net and top covers that I have for the other chameleon work for this one?

    Thanks

  2. Question

    rhoge

    Will the bug net and top cover be closer to your head and would they pull the footbox and head end in closer when trying to lay at more of an angle to take advantage of the extra width since they are the same size as the regular hammock?

      We have never had an issue with this as the extra width is made to accommodate someone with a little extra length and it won’t affect the actual bugnet size.

    5 out of 5 [ @ 1 month of daily use] Loving this hammock

    Jonathan Burnett

    I’ve been anticipating this hammock since the crowd funding campaign, and finally the wide option was available!

    For reference, I’m coming from a department store hammock experience, then advanced to ENO, and finally this.

    First the main comparisons. The Chameleon is one panel construction, while the others I tried were three (two colors), three panels mean that there’s seams on either side, and the threads are itchy, especially on warm nights. The Chameleon being one panel construction does not have this issue.

    My previous hammocks were shorter. This meant that to get a good angled lay, I needed a wider hammock. This isn’t the case with the longer hammock, and I ordered a second normal width Chameleon to try both.
    My conclusion is: If you’re under six feet tall, the extra wide chameleon is just useless extra weight, and definitely will have lots of extra loose material flopping around if you’re shorter than five feet tall.

    The zipper on the Asym bugnet works great. Just like any zipper, it will catch at points where there’s a little too much tension on the fabric, or if loose fabric gets in the way, so be careful of that, just like always.

    I recommend getting the peak shelf accessory with it, maybe even one for each end.

      We normally recommend the wide body for people who are 6′ and over 200lbs, or if you have a bigger set of shoulders on you and would like the extra room.

    5 out of 5 Great purchase.

    Aaron Lauridsen (verified owner)

    I originally bought the normal width chameleon and when i tried it out, it felt a little cramped. So i swapped it out for a wide chameleon.

    Figured I would go test it out as soon as it came in and what was gonna be a quick set up trial ended up being an hour nap. Its just that comfortable.

      Yes you will be able to use the daisy chain webbing and a carabiner and connect it to the continuous loop.
