Bringing your hammock inside everyday can sometimes be a drag. You might like to leave yours outside all the time setup ready to jump in it anytime you have a spare few minutes. So for those who like to leave their hammocks outside frequently, over summer and in the rain then you should consider our hammocks made from HamacTex® material. HamacTex® is UV-resistant and water-repellent, quick drying and soft and comfortable. It is the material to survive wind, sun and rain and will keep its functionality and radiant colours nicely.
HamacTex® is a weatherproof functional fibre developed especially for hammock use and durability. HamacTex® material has been around since 2005 and was developed with the desire to create a fabric that was similar to cotton yet had greater durability built into it. Allowing the end user to relax and leave their hammock out all summer knowing it will handle the elements. This unique polypropylene-based fibre has been appreciated by hammock enthusiasts worldwide ever since.
With New Zealand's quickly changing weather it's good to know a rain shower will not harm a product made of HamacTex®. The fabric is water repellent encouraging rain drops to simply drip off the hammock, leaving the fabric dry. Heavy showers may make your HamacTex® hammock wet but keep it outside and it will quickly dry once the rain stops and be ready for use again shortly.
Long-term exposure to the sun is not a problem to HamacTex® products either: Even with months of direct sun exposure, the colours maintain their brightness while the fabric remains soft and supple. HamacTex® is very similar to cotton in terms of feel. You may even have trouble telling the two apart. Even on your bare skin, you will be pleasantly surprised at the softness and feel.
No stress, no worry, leave your HamacTex® hammock outside all summer and enjoy relaxing when the moment takes you.
Not every hammock on offer is available in HamacTex® but check for the HamacTex® logo and product description for those products that are.
