In 2013, the world was introduced to the Nube hammock shelter, taking your regular camping experience to a new level, literally. Elevated camping certainly beat having to worry about your safety as well as the safety of your belongings while out enjoying nature. The Nube Stratos is the next generation of elevated camping, it is a lightweight modular hammock that offers shelter and layers of protection while camping. The layered design of the hammock ensures your protection from the natural elements such as rain, wind and insects. This new and innovative design uses elements found in the original Nube hammock and has incorporated two QuikConnect layers, the base layer, the StratoShield and the external layer, the StratosFly. Both layers are adjustable to your camping environments. The new asymmetric design also enable squick setup by using 4 ground stakes therefore eliminating tent poles. The base layer of the hammock suspends up to 100 pounds of gear as well as providing a flat panel roof that can be opened to enjoy the stars. One of the most convenient aspects of the Nube Stratos is that it can be used with your own camping hammock therefore you are just adding layered protection. The external layer, the StratosFly ensures protection from extreme external elements as well as offering visibility and an easy entry and exit point.
