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.
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.
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
- Overhead storage
- 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
