Home/Contests & Promotions/National Hammock Day Epic Giveaway!

hammock_campingDid you know that July 22nd is known as National Hammock Day? Whether you’re an avid hammock fan or you’re just now hearing about it, it’s a holiday close to our hearts at Trek Light Gear and we’ve decided to take the next couple weeks to celebrate in style and make sure everyone remembers National Hammock Day from now on.  We’re giving away over 30 Prize Packages (!!!) including 10 Amazing Hammock Prize Packs, Gift Certificates, Eco Totes, Trek Flight Frisbees and more!!!

To help manage the contest, we’ve got a handy new widget from fellow Boulder company Rafflecopter.  The best part about the contest is that there are multiple ways you can enter and a number of them you can do once per day.  Every entry counts and to make it even sweeter, some are worth multiple entries – go all out and increase your chances of winning drastically! Winners will be chosen in a random drawing from the entries received, so just follow the tasks below to help spread the word and get rewarded for it!

Life really is better in a hammock and we’re happy to be celebrating National Hammock Day in style this year.   It’s been an amazing 2011 at Trek Light Gear so far – we’ve seen our Facebook page pass 10,000 fans, we had our national TV debut on the Home Shopping Network and we’ve planted well over 1,000 trees as part of our Buy A Hammock, Plant A Tree program.  It’s all thanks to your support and this epic giveaway is my way of returning that support and saying thanks for all you do to help us grow.

If you’re just discovering Trek Light Gear, take some time to explore the blog and of course check out our amazing hammocks.  We’re looking forward to helping you get off the ground with us and discover why so many people around the world are embracing the Trek Light lifestyle.  To maximize participation and give you plenty of time to enter, we’re running the contest through Friday, August 5th.  Since I hope many of you will be out celebrating Hammock Day, we decided to give you plenty of days (and plenty of ways) to enter.  We may even add some more creative ways to enter during the contest period so make sure you check back often and don’t forget you can enter every day to increase your chances. Good luck and Happy Hammock Day!!!!

    This is BY FAR the best Hammock I have EVER owned.  I’ve had it for more than 4 years; it was the first gift I purchased for myself when I bought my first house…screw the furniture.  It still looks and feels like it did on day 1.  Now, whenever I go to a “house warming” party, this is the gift they get!  Thanks so much for this wonderful product.

    I love Trek Light Gear because of the way they promote low impact enjoyment of nature.  I hope I win so I can love them for their products as well :-).  

  • Jewellfamily

    I love my Trek Light double hammock.  It is a perfect way to camp out or just lay around the yard.  I have spent many nights of blissful sleep in adventurous places in this hammock.  I have had several homemade hammocks, and hammocks from other companies in previous years, but I have never had a hammock as good as my Trek Light double.  It is a perfect setup with the easy connect hooks and mosquito netting that is offered.  This has been my very best hammock.  I need one for my wife and boys now.  Thank you Trek Light.

  • I stinking LOVE Trek Light Gear! They make my life so much easier and more accessible. Woo!

  • Katjim00

    I’ve always heard great things about Trek Light, just unfortunately haven’t been able to afford one for myself 🙁

  • Annie P

    If you are a tree-hugging fresh-air breathin hammock lovin fool like me, then Trek Light Gear is the best damn product in your hiking/ camping arsenal. 
    Want to know the best part about this company? It plants a tree for every hammock bought. 
    Can’t think of anything more true to “trek lightly” mission. 
    Rock on TLG

  • Chris

    I’ve heard only good things about Trek light hammocks, and I’d love to see how much better life is in a hammock!

  • SO happy you guys are doing this giveaway! Got to test out one of your hammocks at the Red Bull Creation contest finals in Brooklyn with the guys from North Street Labs and “The American Dream”. It was definitely brag-worthy! So comfy and awesome looking! I was telling them how nice it would be to have one out here in Arizona where I spend my evenings stargazing on the back porch. I wasn’t worried about falling out in the event of comfortable sleep =)

  • Teacherguy1980

    I am a big guy and these hammocks allowed my wife and me to lie down in them and they were really comfortable.  I love them.

  • Brooke Miller

    The hammocks were very comfortable for both my husband and me!

  • Mcaccamo

    I need another of your hammocks so I don’t have to try to share my hammock with my wife when we camp anymore!

  • Amy

    I love trek light hammocks because they weigh nothing and barely take up any space – plus they’re comfy & super easy to hang up.  they’re made of pure awesome!

  • Empireaussie

    I have been lusting after your hammocks for sometime. I am finally moving into my own house with not one, but TWO, backyards with the perfect tree for hammock-time. FINALLY!

  • Kbenzelf9

    I am a flight attendant and I take my hammock on every layover. Everywhere i go i try to find a place or event to “hang around” and people are always intrigued by it. It’s such a wonderful way to unwind at the end of a long day. They are just as great by the hotel pool as they are on a back country camping trip! I recently bought the mosquito net (which I do not take on layovers unless I am headed to Alaska!) and absolutely love it while camping. It’s so easy to put up and works great! Thanks TLG! I am a huge fan!

  • ksich

    Trek Light hammocks are glorious.

  • Danishaf

    I’d like to have a hammock that doesn’t flip me over or make me feel unsafe on.  I’ve seen way too many videos on America’s funniest home videos with people falling out of hammocks, and I do not want to be one of those people.  What I would like is a hammock to take to college with me.  Trek Light Gear fits the bill– light for easy moving, excellent design, and they support a small business.

  • Brilang

    I sure hope I win something!

  • I LOVE Trek Light Gear because the hammock is very comfortable, obviously it is very light-weight, and I can tuck it in a small pack for a quick overnighter, or just to use to rest in on long hikes. 

  • I love your gear, of course because of the quality.  but, your company just seems so…cool.  No, really, I’m not just sucking up to try to win stuff.  It just seems like a really cool place to work.

  • A hammock is so relaxing

  • Ellen B

    This is stuff my son would like

  • I like Trek Light Gear because it is a real company that builds relationships with its customers. Not to mention, they build kick ass products 😉

  • I need a hammock to increase my summer relaxation!!!

  • Ecpaige

    I REALLY need one of these. I will hide from my kids in it. Why don’t I get points for posting on Google+?

  • We’d love to include Google+ but since they’re not yet allowing business pages there unfortunately isn’t any easy way we can verify the posts like we can on Facebook. If you love Trek Light Gear, don’t hesitate to post on your page anyways and let more people know about us!

  • Ecpaige

    I always love to tell people about Trek Light Gear. The chance to win stuff is just added bonus.

    I can’t wait for Google+ to open up for businesses. Then my day job will be even more awesome. For now, I will use my personal account to talk about some great businesses and products.

  • Maluetjen

    how generous are you? I hope this gets the word out just a bit how much TLG rocks! XOXo

  • Travis Thomason

    I need another Trek light sooo bad. Somebody always wants to try it out and then I end up having to find a stick to run them out so I can get back to relaxing! it would be great to have a guest hammock. 

  • Jc_thomp

    Is it wrong that I wanted to call in sick to work and hang in the trek light hammock today? Nevermind…I know its right in so many ways!

  • I am all about this… the tale of the hammock must be told!

  • Slk_8807

     I love you guys!! You’ve re-inspired a desire in me to enjoy the outdoors in a way that provides comfort and relaxation without watering down a camping or hiking experience. Hopefully this event earns you some customers and me a hammock with a go anywhere rope. I am after-all a shameless promoter of the practical products in my life.
