From Simple Chairs to Brand SuicideBy Rocky Thompson on August 23rd, 2006
The company that made its name with an incredibly simple camp is making shelters that are harder to use than Suunto watches. Crazy Creek might make great chairs, but their Crazy Crib is one of the worst designed hammocks on the market. It uses a tarp you hang between the two perfectly spaced trees youâ€™ve already found to hang you hammock and no-see-um netting stretches over the top. The biggest problems are the odd top entry and the two aluminum hoops that spring load the whole thing guaranteeing a zipper break. Not only is it super hard to get into and put up, itâ€™s basically guaranteed that the zippers will blow out in the backcountry.
