Giveaway: Color Cloud Hammock

Every Friday is giveaway day. Comment to win!


Several years ago, three nomadic adventurers started a small business making and selling hammocks. The hammocks have since gone global, with sightings in more than 40 countries and all 7 continents.

I love these hammocks! We use them in the Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) lounge at WDS every year, and they’re always a huge hit.

Also, be sure to check out their hammocks around the world on Instagram via hashtag #inacolorcloud.

What you need to know:

  • Color Cloud hammocks are sweatshop-free and individually crafted by a small team of Cambodian women
  • The hammocks are available in a range of colors. This giveaway is for the “On the Bow” version, a great unisex color
  • This giveaway is available to readers worldwide. Anyone can win!
  • Our cats and biased judges will pick someone on Sunday night at 6pm PST

Enter this weekโ€™s giveaway by posting a comment, then check back on Sunday night. Weโ€™ll announce the winner and send them the prize!

Update: Comments are now closed. Congrats to Dana Myskowski, selected by cats and a random number generator to win the gift certificate! Everyone else, thanks for entering. We’ll have another giveaway next week.

  • Morgan says:

    I spent many an idyllic summer evening floating in our family’s hammock as a child. Nothing was more hilarious than when a wind storm would blow the hammock into the pool and the subsequent battle to retrieve it.

  • brendan says:

    Wow – great colors. We’d love to spread the color/love on our year long trip, over 35K miles, 3 kids, 2 adults. Definetely put them to good us and show some great backdrops between Alaska wilds, Utah Arches, Aztec temples to the Savannah grasslands of Africa. Might even get an Egyptian pyramid in the background shot!

    I have always loved and dreamt of the day I could have a hammock. 15years after begging for a hammock one showed up at a new place I was looking to move to & it became a sign.

  • clark chambers says:

    the hammock swung,
    On our backs we’d lie;
    Looking at the shy,
    ’til the stars were strung,
    Only last July,
    When the world was young

    -When the World was Young
    sang by everybody good: Sinatra, Franklin, Como, P.Lee, etc

    “The past should be a springboard, not a hammock.” So says Irving Bell. I agree…but a would be pretty sweet for making future plans!

    Ooooh happy colors for happy nomads!

  • TJ Wood says:

    I’ve been daydreaming about getting a hammock! These look amazing ๐Ÿ™‚ Even if I don’t win, I will likely end up with one!

  • Val says:

    My first exposure to the hammocks was at the Highly Sensitive Person Lounge. This WDS also was my first exposure to the wonderful Looptworks. But not Tom Bihn, because I already knew about Tom Bihn! But! It *was* the first time I got to feel and use any of these fine products.

  • Alexandre says:

    Thank you very much for your inspiring work, and for these surprising opportunities!

  • Kristin says:

    Hammocks are the best!!

  • Julie Gieseke says:

    My friend in Hawaii has taken to sleeping in a hammock and she says it is the best sleep she has ever had. I would like to try it, but maybe it’s really the islands that do the trick!

  • Rebecca Carter says:

    I love hammocks, but oddly have ever owned one! I’ve got the perfect spot on my balcony for this!

    I’ve been following you since your course on CreativeLive and have learned so much. Love your style of writing and your passions. Thank you!

  • laurie wagner says:

    My two beautiful children have just left home for the wilds of Colorado, my husband of many years lives a few miles away. They all want me to get a dog. They’re afraid I’m going to be lonely. But who wants to deal with all that shedding and those middle of the day walks when you can just pop into one of those gorgeous hammocks and have yourself a little respite? Seriously. I’m in.

  • Cybil Zhang says:

    I love hammocks, especially camping in them!

  • Clark says:

    Another great giveaway! Thanks Chris.

  • Joan Otto says:

    Man, I’d LOVE one of those! I’d have to find a place to hang it, having no porch or trees, but trust me – I’d make it work. (Heck – I’d sleep it in it my house!)

  • Tessa says:

    First of all, I love that you guys have a Highly Sensitive Person lounge at WDS. Second, I love the form-meet-function concept of nomads making awesome hammocks– great companions where-ever you travel, just add trees! (Or poles, or obliging people who will stand still long enough.)

  • Nine says:

    I was just saying the other day that I could do with a hammock! I cross my fingers.

  • Wendy says:

    Crazy coincidence (or divine nod), after years of wanting one, I bought my first hammock yesterday! I didn’t realize why I liked them so much (as do my kids) until I saw that you put them in your HSP room at WDS – it makes so much sense now. I’d love to grow my hammock collection and promote them wherever I go! Thank you!!!

  • Jordan Iseral says:

    Well, these are just lovely! Now that I’m looking at apartments that actually have backyards one of these would be glorious. Hammocks… gotta love em! You would be contributing to the nonconformists in NY :).

  • Paulo says:

    Wow, these look super cool!
    I grew up in Brazil where hammocks are compulsory in every house. Mostly they are handmade locally crafted. But yours would sell well there!

  • Rebecca says:

    Ever since I was little, my answer to the question of what my dream house has to have, it’s always the same must. An awesomely colorful hammock on a rooftop deck.

  • Doug Dyment says:

    If I’m going to travel with one of these, I’d like to know what it weighs (the site seems to say nothing about size, fabric, or weight). So if I win one, the first thing I plan to do is weigh it!

  • Christy says:

    I’d stop the world and melt with you, hammock.

  • Erik says:

    Colorful! I’ve got a covered camping hammock, but I would love to use one of these open hammocks for sleeping high up in the trees in style (and I could keep my harness on while sleeping).

  • Gloria Boehm-Yu says:

    I would give this hand-crafted beauty to my new BFF. She has undergone much personal transformation and is on an entrepreneurial path with incredible self-determination and intention. She actually wants and deserves a maca (hammock)! I also need to share your web site with her! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Debbie says:

    This hammock would be an awesome place to consider what country to visit next with Chris’ travel tips and suggestions! I’m heading to Germany, Austria and Switzerland soon! Thanks for the giveaway offer, Chris!

  • Mike Diver says:

    I live in Arizona and the hammock colors match!!

  • Erica Mooney says:

    Wahoo! Hede power worldwide. Love the concept and hop the business is able to thrive sustainably ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Rob M says:

    These look fantastic! A great way to relax while planning new adventures.

  • Ann S says:

    I think a hammock has a certain mystique. It makes me think of leisurely days lounging at the beach or at a campground and reading the latest book. It is sort of the outdoor equivalent of a waterbed.

  • Kristen says:

    Those hammocks look beautiful!

  • TTN says:

    My kids just found the wonders of the hammock and have been asking for one in our living room.

  • Mike P. says:

    That hammock is calling my name.

  • L. Cee says:

    Would love to ponder all those answers that are blowin’ in the wind while relaxing in one of these beauties. One question I’d like answered is why I always have to pause to remember the difference between a hammock and a hassock. :/

  • Eric says:

    After living in Panama I got used to sleeping in a hammock. I finally wore mine out these would be perfect.

  • Tink Rabey-Hall says:

    Beautiful hammocks! We are building a hammock village for our summer camp and would love to add one of these!

  • Gillian Chow says:

    I sat in a hammock for the first time in my life this summer and thought: “Where have these been all my life?” It’d be a nice place to sit and read my copy of The Happiness of Pursuit when I get my hands on it!

    And I would also be able to say let’s “hang out” with friends at home and mean it literally! (Hanging, outside, in hammocks… XD)

  • Carol tyner says:

    Sure would look nice in our backyard ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Crystal Renee says:

    Wow love the colorful hammocks and they look super comfy. I’m trying to type this as one of my many cats is trying to snuggle right on top of the laptop! Thank you for the giveaway.

  • Sherry Galey says:

    Rock-a-bye moi!

    I’m from Central America and grew up in a hammock ๐Ÿ™‚ and miss them. Plus if you combine them with a papasan cushion its like being cuddled by a cloud. Gimme! gimme! gimme! Por favor?

  • Tom says:

    Fits my bedroom dimensions perfectly, and saves me a grand on a Queen size. Thanks.

  • Wes Gibson says:

    Kind of reminds me of my Navy days. We didn’t sleep in hammocks, but we did have a couple that we suspended in the overhead down in the photo lab (Navy Photographer). They were great for relaxing during the nightly movie. These hammocks are much prettier though.

    Yes! Who wouldn’t want an awesome Color Cloud hammock!

  • Nikki says:

    My youngest three girls love spending time with a book in the hammock, but their much loved hammock wore out earlier this month. These brightly colored hammocks are much more gorgeous (and fun!) than the one we had! And this design would allow them to use it in our most favorite place to be… the mountains! Imagine the excitement on their faces (not to mention the loud audible sound I would hear) if they/we were to win one of these fabulous hammocks to replace their worn out one! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Jackie says:

    I would use this hammock!

    So will it hold someone over 250lbs? If so, I’d love one!

  • Lori Leduc says:

    How perfect would it be. I live in a city that is “On the Bowโ€ river. It would be awesome to have a hammock to take with is on our travels in our camper van. Would be a great conversation starter.

    Love the colors. What are they made of?

  • Josiane says:

    When I was living in Grenada, I’ve had quite a few memorable conversations with my host brother while lying in the hammock that was hanging on the veranda of our house. If I had a hammock of my own over here (which I’d love!), I wonder what kinds of memories would be made while lounging in it…

    When I was traveling in Ecuador in 2007 I found this hammock that I loved, but I didn’t buy it because I convinced myself I didn’t need one. I was living on a ship at the time, and when the ship pulled out of port, everyone strung up their hammocks on deck. I realized I clearly did one!! Would love one of these now!!

  • Andrew Donaldson says:

    Love the story of a small company achieving global success. It’s what world domination is all about.

    Would be great to have a hammock, in fact I might just buy one on Monday if there’s not one winging it’s way to me.

    Beautiful blooms of color – and the cloth texture exudes comfort … would love one for my Paris-area garden! And just to bias the judges further … I share that garden with two cats, who are the wisest beings living here! (Cats aren’t incapable of speech … they’re BEYOND speech.) Best wishes for continued success in your international business – THAT’s how ‘globalisation’ should be …

  • Lora Terry-Steele says:

    The colors are so much fun and I would love to take a nap, read a book, or meditate while hanging out in one! What a great business venture you have….

  • Rich Proctor says:

    In the last 4 days I’ve flown round trip from Tampa to Seattle to settle one daughter in college and driven from Tampa to Spartanburg SC (includng a tire blow out 3.5 hour delay) to drop off the other daughter. My old hammock died earlier this year and one of these colorful ones would be the ideal way to relax and begin my empty nest.

    I feel a nap coming on!

    I’ve been wishing for one of these. Perhaps my wish will come true sooner rather than later!

  • Beau says:

    Two years ago I was 27 and unemployed. I had spent my early 20s working dead end jobs that paid me very little ($20000 a year doesn’t go far in my area) in fields I wasn’t interested in. I was lonely, depressed, and saw no point in soldiering on.

    Today, I work as a product manager at an awesome tech company. I make over four times what I was making before, I have a wonderful and loving girlfriend, and I just bought a house and my first car built within the last decade. I’m getting a dog. The future looks bright and I’m happier than I’ve ever been.

    Your site, along with The Art of Manliness and a few key books helped propel this change. I cannot thank you enough for giving people hope when they need it, showing the world that life can be worth living, and pursuing a cause that is noble and inspiring.

    My new pad has a beautiful screened in porch and I can’t tell you how grateful I’d be to stretch out in an awesome hammock, relax, and appreciate how fortunate I am.

  • Margaret Wood says:

    Is there anything better than relaxing in a hammock on a beautiful day? My teenaged kids finally put a whole too large to ignore in our tattered but beloved hammock…one of these sweat-shop free hammocks would be a wonderful replacement!

  • Andrea says:

    When I was out walking earlier this week, I saw a hammock in someone’s yard. I immediately thought “I need to get a hammock!”. Just seeing it hanging there in the early morning light made me smile. There’s something about hammocks…

    Those are awesome!

  • Kristin says:

    Neat! I’d love to hide away in one of these.

    There aren’t many things more relaxing than laying in a hammock with a breeze blowing! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I was shattered that I didn’t get to the HSP room at WDS! Thanks for all you do Chris.

  • Chris Allen says:

    I love hammocks!

  • Daisy says:

    These look wonderful. I wonder if my local import shop carries them? These hammocks would fit their philosophy very well.

  • Diana says:

    I would love a hammock, but my highly sensitive 10 yr old would love it even more.

  • Alexis Burroughs says:

    I’d love to get this of for my 14year old son. He just got his second class in scouts and is working towards getting his Eagle Scout within the next two years. We just went camping and he insisted on sleeping in a hammock outside just like he did on his last scout trip. He borrowed his Dads netting hammock. Between his green sleeping bag and green tarp over his head he looked like a little pea pod hanging in the hammock. I’d love to be able to win this for him, so he could use it on his scout adventures and beyond in his life travels.

  • Vicken Aharonian says:

    Nothing like a hammock stretched out between two palm trees on a slightly deserted sunny beach…with a few people around.. but not too crowded… no screaming kids so that their loud shrieks drown the sound of the seagulls…maybe just a group playing beach volley in the distance…and of course me in that hammock with my fedora hat dipping forward covering my face as i slowly sip pina colada from my makeshift coconut-glass.

  • Spike says:

    A definite must on my next adventure!

  • Peter Jones says:

    Swing me gently to sleep…..

  • Marci Wright says:

    These are awesome! I have a son who has autism & SPD & I think he would love a hammock for the sensory input of the swaying / swinging motion. The fact that they are so bright & colorful is an added bonus – as is that they are sweatshop free – excellent!

    like the philosophy behind this project – that they provide work for cambodjian women. And also hammpcks lool great!

    Sweet! My life would rock with one of these! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Coco says:

    The house I just moved into had a hammock in the backyard, but alas, the hammock didn’t come with the house and was gone when we arrived on moving day.

    So in other words, I know just where I’ll put this.

  • Marc says:

    Great looking hammock!


    Aren’t they gorgeous! I live in Ireland where sunny days are few & far between so I’d hang mine inside – great for curling up with a cat (or 3), a good book & a glass of plonk (or 3!).

  • basil curtis says:

    There’s a reason 308 other people want to get their hands (as well as butts and backs) on one of these bad bays, they’re legit!

  • Cat says:

    I have been obsessing about how to hang a hammock on the front porch of my 100-year-old house. Obsessing! Can I drill into brick with my cordless drill? Will it support the weight of two people? When will you send me this new hammock and help me make this dream of mine come true!!??

  • Gretchen says:

    There once was a gal from Wyoming
    Who wanted the world to go roaming.
    A hammock for chilling
    Would be quite fulfilling
    At dawn’s first light or at gloaming.

  • Megan says:

    Hammocks are awesome!

  • Marcin W. Dabrowski says:

    Oh my! Let me cocoon in one of those. Let me be a chrysalisโ€“inโ€“aโ€“hammock one day, to become a beautiful human machine after my powerโ€“nap under the trees in my garden. And to the biased cat in the jury โ€”ย I have a cat too, and he will be of course the first to nap whole day in our new hammock, if he chooses that way of course.

    Oh, hammock, hammock in the tree,
    I see you out there, calling me.
    I have my book by Guillebeau,
    The Happiness of Pursuit in tow.
    I wander towards you, beckoning there,
    Already feeling, wind in hair.
    I am now wrapped, in your embrace;
    Book now open, smiling face.

    Wow, there are a lot of people on the AONC mailing list who want a hammock. Including me.

    The reason we deserve a hammock – my wife will be 7.5 months pregnant when we return to North Carolina at the end of this month, having just spent the last two years in Palestine, and where I’ve spent the last two months working in Gaza. It is time for a break.

  • Helena says:

    Need it.

  • Cyriel Kortleven says:

    Mmm, hammocks …

  • Jeff Peters says:

    That makes me so happy to hear you say these hammocks are sweat shop free. It is a first world problem that we far too often don’t think about the third world consequences of our consumerism. The slavery and human rights issues we overlook to justify our access to cheap goods is a moral dilemma we should all consider and take a personal stand.

  • David Rivers says:

    What an awesome idea! Love these. Nice colors. Very portable. Great Idea!

    Thank you hammock gods for creating such beauties!

  • jf says:

    So pretty!

  • Garrett says:

    The world – or maybe just public parks – needs more hammocks and lazy reading spots that aren’t coffee shops. A hammock can be a great third space anywhere there’s two pillars.

  • Diane Brandson says:

    Chris I just retired, now putting the finishing touches on a 1906 Victorian house, then DH & I are buying a diesel pusher and a couple of bikes and hitting the road as fulltimers. This hammock would be the bomb!!!
