Sleeping in the wild does wonders for your body. It resets our circadian rhythms, boosts your immune system, helps with body and brain function, speeds up your metabolism, and improves your mental well being.
We're not just talking Fresh Air either. Though we're a little biased, sleeping in the air gives your body a restful floating experience that really helps your body completely relax and drift to sleep peacefully. Air sleep, done right, equals zero pressure points. Need a hammock - check these out!
Claustrophobic environments don't bode well towards a peaceful night of sleep. Give yourself the space to spread out and be sure there's nothing near your face, especially mesh - you don't want pesky bugs buzzing in your ear when you're touching the REM cycle!
Look ahead to see what the low for the night will be, grab the right amount of insulation for that temperature minus 5°F - keep it with you through the night. Vent or add as needed, this will minimally impact your sleep and get you back to sleep faster.
It might sound counter intuitive, you might say "but I want to enjoy the sounds of nature!". Until you don't. The wild is full of mysterious sounds, when trying to sleep it's best to dull the distractions so your mind can completely relax and rest. Earplugs are a great way to soften the rustle and bustle of a raccoon rooting around in camp.
A good camp pillow goes a long way in helping you find your perfect position of comfort and It may not always be under your head! An adjustable and soft pillow can add comfort at your knees, neck, head, and side. Don't shortchange this with a stuff sack full of your dirty laundry - a good trail pillow is worth it's weight. The Pufflo is our favorite!
Being suspended in the air has obvious benefits, but why is the Ninox and the Pares so darn comfy?
The right dimensions, the correct proportions of length and width are incredibly important to enjoying a zero-pressure night's sleep.
We went a step further with the Ninox and added our proprietary Comfort Wave to the casing design. This wave gives your head and your feet a 'pocket' to sink into so you actually lay flat.
No one likes feeling like they're spending a night in Dracula's coffin, having space to move around and stretch out is very important to a good night's sleep.
Our Ninox Hammock actually incorporates 4 Vertical Tie Outs that insure maximum interior space.
This creates a Home Like feeling to your personal sleeping station in the wild.
One fact that many people overlook is considering the fabric that is actually touching your skin. It's probably the most important detail related to consistent comfort.
We developed our own comfort based fabric just for our hammocks known as Teslon it's a perfect blend of softness and strength. The ultra high thread count feels silky smooth, yet is strong enough to hold 1200lbs of concrete!
We built in fabric 'forgiveness' so you never feel like you're sleeping on stiff or course fabric, our Teslon even develops a slight memory over time, fitting to your body perfectly.
Sleeping in the Air is proven to give an amazing night of sleep in the wild, but here are three tips you'll want to incorporate on your first attempt.
Sierra Madre is the sound of a revolution in the outdoor world. Whereas other corporate conglomerates are figuring out which colors to push next year, Sierra Madre is creating real innovations that empower you in the wild!
That's why Sir Richard Branson (possibly one of the most adventurous people on the planet) backed Sierra Madre. He believes in disrupting the status quo with the best product and service and was thrilled to partner with Sierra Madre.
Sierra Madre gear was created to maximize your time in the wild, the Nubé Air Tent brings protection and convenience to a new level and our Ninox and Pares Camping Hammocks insure the best pressure free sleep you can imagine in the wild. We also created gear to keep you warm while you're in the wild, like our 5in1 Puffle Adventure Blanket and our top line Inferno System.
No matter where adventure takes you, we've got your back.
Our founder, Richard Rhett, created Sierra Madre because of two epic gear failures he experienced in the wild. Both left him stranded and completely ruined his adventures. As a Mechanical Engineer turned Entrepreneur. After over 10 years of building gear, Richard has held fast to our two pillars of our gear design, 1) solve problems, and look good doing it 2) over build it with hyper quality.
“Sleeping in the wild should be restful and enjoyable, when you're not worried about getting wet or cold - it's so much easier to feel at peace in the wild”. Being comfortable, protected, and warm in the wild helps you feel at peace... Feels like home. "That's what it's all about."
My name is Jim Aexfor and I am from Minnesota. I recently returned from a trip with a friend to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in northern Minnesota.
I have a Kammok hammock setup while my friend has your Nubé setup he purchased early this year.
During our trip we encountered a bad storm with 50+ mph winds. During the storm my Glider hammock shelter ripped in half. This happened on day 2 of our weeklong adventure. My friend's Nubé shelter withstood the winds and we ended up adding my hammock above his in the shelter so I had a place to sleep out of the rain. We had another night of rain later on in the trip and had to do the same.
I had to let you know how awesome your product is and what a trip-saver is was for us. Otherwise, the trip would have been pretty miserable for me.
I will be shouting from the mountaintops about the quality of your product and will be advising my relatives and friends to check into your products. Ever since I started hammock camping many of my relatives and friends have become interested in this great outdoor experience.
I will be selling my hammock and investing the money into one of your setups. I am a teacher and a volunteer EMT so during the upcoming winter months I will be saving up to purchase the entire Nubé system.
Thank you so much for your incredible products that saved our trip!
“I work for REI in the camping department and I also teach wilderness skills for the outdoor school. I have had plenty of experience with other camping gear but not until I tried sierra madre I was never satisfied. Sierra madre has worked the kinks out with their incredible innovation!” — Robert
