Cure for the common cold butt
‘Cold Butt Syndrome’ happens when you lay in a hammock with only a sleeping bag. Even a very warm sleeping bag gets crushed under the back, legs, shoulder and butt, making it impossible to stay warm. Pads are one option. But they slide around, add bulk, and don’t usually keep shoulders warm. And although there are underquilts, these add setup complexity, tend to slide off and may result in cold drafts.
So what is the perfect solution for Cold Butt Syndrome? The Superior Hammock of course! With integrated down insulation providing cozy warmth down to 30F and weighing just 36 ounces, The Superior will lighten your load and pack smaller than most sleeping bags. Paired with our patented Suspension System, setting up is lightning fast. It’s designed for an excellent diagonal lay, to avoid bent knees. The Superior Hammock has additional features like snaps along the side for closing it up on an extra cold night, snapping on our blanket or connecting to other accessories. And it even has a built-in adjustable ridgeline to store gear and dial in your perfect hang the same every time!
And I mean, it just looks so sexy! You know you want to lay in it.
What customers are saying
A complete system
The beauty of hammock camping is how modular it is. Depending on the time of year, expected weather and many other variables, it’s great to be able to mix and match what you need. And this is part of why hammocks are so addicting. You can use your hammock gear in many combinations. Especially if you have the Superior System of modular gear.
We didn’t just stop creating after developing the innovative patent-pending Superior Hammock. We also created an amazing top quilt (Universal Comforter), a super cool shelter tarp with removable velcro doors and snap-in adjustable tie-outs. And we also have a great bug net -zipperless to avoid snags.
Our Ultimate Bundle includes everything you need to sleep warm to 30F, dry and bug free: Insulated Hammock, Top Quilt, Bugnet, Shelter Tarp, Suspension System.
The entire system weighs in under 6 pounds!
My name is Danny. Superior Gear was born several years ago when I was planning a solo canoe trip in the vast remote area of interconnected lakes in Northern Minnesota, called the ‘Boundary Waters’ not far from Lake Superior. Looking to lighten my pack, I decided to give hammock camping a try. After seeing all the other hammock options out there, I thought there had to be a better and simpler way. So I drew up designs the first insulated Superior Hammock, bought some fabric online and went around to thrift stores buying down jackets, often 2 or 3 womens’ jackest at a time! It took about 40 hours to sew up that first hammock. But man was it sweet!
Ever since then, the idea keeps catching on. People realize they can ditch their tent, not rely on nice flat ground. Not deal with problematic underquilts. And hundreds of people are now getting better sleep camping than they ever have before. I hope you’ll join our story and elevate your camping experience!
