VersaTrek

It's a hammock gear loft.
It's a chair.
It's a swing.
It's a bulletproof vest.

It's whatever you want it to be, except a bulletproof vest.

It may be small, but this versatile little 8oz warrior wears a lot of hats and incredibly still holds up to 400lbs of you or your gear*.

If you've got 400lbs of gear, you're doing it wrong

The VersaTrek is a MINI hammock. If you're over ~2.5ft tall and looking for a full-size hammock to lie down in check out our Double, Single, or Compact hammocks.

 


The VersaTrek Does It All

We began showing off the VersaTrek at trade shows and the response was amazing. One thing was clear right away, we had designed a product that would live up to its name - it seemed like everyone we showed it to found a different reason to love it.

Parents loved it as a mini hammock for their little ones, hunters and anglers loved it as a quick-setup chair, and hammock campers everywhere rejoiced. The days of cuddling up next to your backpack or hanging it in a tree while hammock camping are over - the VersaTrek is here.

Ways To Use Your VersaTrek

Hammock Gear Loft: When setup over or under your hammock you've got a perfect place to store your pack, clip your water bottle, headlamp, etc. and keep all your gear within easy reach. When setup underneath our V9 Strong Tarp, you'll sleep soundly knowing your gear is dry and off the ground. We've also heard they make great toy and stuffed animal lofts at home, but you can say it's for your 'gear' and we'll take your word for it.

Hammock Chair/Swing: While we think hammocks are great for sleeping in, there are a lot of times when you just need to get off the ground and sit comfortably. The VersaTrek is lighter and stronger than any camping chair and gets you off the ground comfortably. Cook your food at the campsite, take a break while hunting, or just swing your troubles away on the front porch. The VersaTrek can be hung from a single overhead branch/post (just make sure it's strong enough to support your weight!).

Mini Hammock: The VersaTrek can be used as a standard lie-down hammock but with a comfort zone between 2.5ft - 3ft tall at most, it isn't going to fit the big kids. However, if you've got little ones the VersaTrek can be a great way to introduce them to the joys of a hammock when they're young. Our No-Flip Design™ means you can rest easy, but please remember you should never leave children or infants unattended or unsupervised when in a hammock. This product is not designed, sold or tested as a 'baby hammock'.

And More And More... Ever since we began testing the product we've heard countless creative ways it's been put to use:

You've used it as a bear pouch while camping (hoisting food up into a tree), as a drag-anchor when boating or kayaking, even as a sling/tourniquet in a backcountry injury.

Go ahead and surprise us, how do you use your VersaTrek?

Safety Meeting!

For you

Always test your hanging points for stability and never set up your hammock at a height where a fall or malfunction could cause injury to you, or in any way that could injure the people around you.

Equipment, even brand new equipment, can fail. Trees or structures that appear sturdy are not always what they seem. Be smart and always think about your safety first. 

We realize that our customer base consists of responsible and knowledgeable outdoor lovers capable of maintaining a safe environment even in situations that appear dangerous to the outside eye. If you choose to disregard our safety recommendations and hang your hammock from anything above a safe height (3′ or higher), you should always have a safety backup plan in case of failure – a harness, safety ropes, etc. that would protect you from any injury.

For the trees

When used properly and on trees with healthy, strong bark, your hammock suspension should not cause any damage to the tree. However, not all trees are created equal and some trees have a soft bark layer which can be damaged if you're not careful when you hang your hammock.

Killing a tree so you can enjoy a nap isn't a fair trade in our book. If you have any reason to think the tree you're hanging from could be damaged from your hammock use you should always add a layer of padding underneath your hammock ropes or hang elsewhere. Items like a towel or piece of clothing can be used to pad and protect trees while you're on the trail. 

We always recommend getting out of your hammock and checking things out after a few minutes of use to make sure you're not causing any damage to the tree. It's up to you to be smart about your impact - leave no trace!!

Worth every penny

I slung my Versatrek between two doors in my apt as soon as I opened the package. I'm a little top heavy and 263lbs 6'2", so the Versatrek didn't work so well as a chair (I topple out of the back side). But let me tell you, when I laid in it there wasn't a single cry, creak, or groan form it at all. The fit and finish proves that the Versatrek is built as a hammock that can also stow your gear when on the trail. I love my Versatrek, Thank you Trek Light Gear!

Thanks, George! Glad to hear you've been enjoying the VersaTrek!

This thing is awesome. I'm a big guy, so unfortunately, it's kinda small as a hammock chair (which is why I bought it), but it works great for my daughters. It will be good as a gear loft, too.

Amazing!!!

Even though I use an ultra light tent, I take the gear versatrek gear loft on long distance hikes, because 1, it's super light when you replace the hardware with whoopie slings, 2 It's a great hammock chair so you can get off your feet after putting in the long miles, and 3 I'm very physicaly fit but I'm a big guy at 260 pounds but this thing holds me no problem, despite the small size. I highly recommend this over those "ultra light" camp chairs that weigh a whole pound or more. My hammock chair with whoopies is more like 7oz or less. Wish I would have ordered camo color though.

Ross! Glad to hear you've been enjoying your VersaTrek. Hammock on!

TREK LIGHT GEAR'S SHIPPING POLICY

Processing Time

COVID-19 Update: Our warehouse is adopting safe social distance practices and taking all necessary measures to ship orders with the highest safety standards. These measures may result in longer fulfillment times than normal so we sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.Our standard policy is still detailed below for your reference.

We know what it's like to order something online and want to have it in your hands as quickly as possible. We ask that you allow us 1 business day to process your order and get it ready to ship, however we do everything we can to get orders out the door as soon as they come in - which means most packages ship the very same day you order.

Our shipping takes place Monday through Friday - any orders placed over the weekend or after our mail pickup will be shipped the next business day whenever possible.

Pre-Orders / Back Orders

We offer the ability to pre-order and back order some items on our site when they are not yet in stock. If an item you are purchasing isn't currently in stock, you'll see a note displayed in your shopping cart that indicates the expected shipping time for your order.

Please note that the expected shipping time is an estimate based on when we expect to receive new inventory. Sometimes it takes us even longer than expected to receive inventory (especially with unpredictable COVID delays) and sometimes we receive inventory much sooner than the timeframe we estimate. Your order will always ship as soon as the inventory is in our hands!

We aren't able to split-ship your orders into multiple deliveries - so if you are ordering an item that isn't currently in stock along with other items that are, please be aware that your order won't ship until all items are in stock. If you're anxious to receive the in-stock items, we recommend placing separate orders so you can receive the in-stock items without delay.

Delivery Times

If you choose an option like "Express (2 Business Days)", please remember that isn't a guarantee that the order will be there exactly two days from the moment you order it - we still need time to pack & ship your order (see above).

Carrier/Service Info

Please see our separate Carrier Info page with important details on which carriers we offer and how to make sure you get your package delivered properly.

International Shipping

When receiving an international order your package will need to pass through Customs in your country. All of our packages will have a Customs Declaration Form which details the items in your package and their value.

PLEASE NOTE: There are almost always additional charges to receive your package when you order from outside your own country - these charges are Customs Duties and Import Taxes which are your responsibility to pay (often before you are allowed to collect the package). The laws and taxes are different in every country and Trek Light Gear has no way of knowing in advance what these taxes and fees will be. Please be aware of this when placing your order, we don't want you to be surprised when the package shows up and you owe additional money!

If you have any additional questions about international shipping methods or rates just let us know!

OUR HAPPINESS GUARANTEE

As you've likely seen on our website, we stand behind our products with what we call our Happiness Guarantee. So, what does that mean exactly?

In a nutshell: We want you to be happy with what you buy from us, and if you aren't - you've got our promise that we'll always do whatever we can to bring you happiness.

Within reason, right? Maybe you're sad because everything in our store doesn't cost $1, or you wish our 30-day return window was actually 3 years - well, we need to have some policies and rules so we can survive as a small business.

What matters is that we're here for you.

We truly care about your happiness, and will always do what we can to help - maybe it's a discount on your next order, store credit for a future purchase, or just going out of our way to make sure that the next item you buy from us is exactly what you want.

Feel Good. Do Good. Pass It on.


30 DAY EASY RETURN & EXCHANGE POLICY

If for any reason you're not happy with anything you ordered from us, just send it back to us within 30 days by following the instructions below.

The product must be in unused or 'like-new' condition - you're welcome to try a product to make sure you like it, but we cannot accept returns that are abused, stained, washed/laundered, or otherwise damaged (unless the damage is the result of a manufacturer's defect, in which case it is covered under our Lifetime Warranty).

Holiday Extension: All purchases made in November or December will be allowed an extended return window thru 1/31. We'll make it easy for the gift recipient to handle any returns or exchanges!
