Which is why I tested out the Jammock on a cold snowy day. One of my motto's is "Dare to be Different"!
As one of the hosts of the Jeep Talk Show I was asked to review the Jammock. The company sent me a Jammock for the Wrangler. Once I review the product on the show, we will give it away on the Jeep Talk Show Podcast. So here goes. First off you might ask, What is a Jammock? Well... it's a Hammock you can use on top of your Jeep when you are topless. It fits all Jeep Wranglers from 1987 to the present. It also has some other uses, but I tried it out on top of my Jeep over the front seats of my 4 door Rubicon.
Installing is a snap!
Tip #1: Make sure you thread the strap from the bottom of the buckle.
When I first installed the Jammock, I threaded the strap the wrong way. Thankfully my 17 year old son suggested I test the Jammock before I sat in it. I would have fallen straight through.
They use NRS Buckles. These buckles are the industry choice for corrosion resistance and strength. They are rated for 2,000 lbs each. I was impressed with these buckles. They are strong, and very easy to use. The material is made of 1000 Denier Cordura Nylon and it's coated for water resistance. The straps are one piece throughout for added strength. This product is definitely made with a good quality material.
Strong, Simple & Easy
The instructions on their website show where you should place the straps. I wasn't able to place the straps in the same location as the picture on their website.
My roll bar and frame are just too close together to slide the NRS buckles through. So I improvised. It worked.
The Jammock has many other uses as well.
Hammock over the front or rear seat
Pet barrier (between the front and rear seats)
Wind jammer (between the front and rear seats)
Lounge chair on the back roll bars
Sling seat hammock off the vehicle
I only tried it out as a hammock over the front seat. Because I wasn't able to put the straps like the instructions indicated, keeping the Jammock up when not in use didn't work for me. It did not pulled tight and got in the way of my driving.
Tip #2: When getting into the Jammock I found climbing in from the back seat was the best. Especially in a lifted Jeep.
I do love the idea of hanging out chilling at the top of my Jeep. This would make for a great accessory out on the trails or at a campsite. The cost of $137.99 is well worth your money.
