If travelling light is a key element to your outdoor adventure, then consider the Deep Jungle Zip XL as a replacement for the humble tent. This hammock from Hennessy Hammock is for serious trekking - we are talking deep amazon jungle escapades, not a weekend in your local woodland, although it would work for that too.
Since the Instagram revolution everyone likes to show off their skills. If you can’t walk on your hands, nail the Scorpion Pose or smash out Voodoo Child on the ukulele should you even have an account?

When I was young, my older sister got sea monkeys for Christmas. I remember being so jealous and arguing the fact that, although I was just 5 years old, I had both the skills and dedication to shoulder the responsibility of a little shrimpy family of my own. I quickly disproved my point by accidently knocking over my sister’s tank within hours of her setting it up. Twenty-six years later, I feel I am just about ready to take on the challenge again, except, this time, there is no possibility of spillage thanks the EcoSphere.
