The Cacoon is a combination hammock/tent designed to provide both privacy and relaxation. The portable shelter is made from a colorful and weather-proof canvas. The Cacoon comes in a variety of colors and can fit either one or two people.

The Cacoon's name may indicate that it was inspired by an insect, but this design actually was born using the Weaver Bird as inspiration. The Weaver Bird crafts small nests that hang off the side of trees. The Cacoon was created by a team of professionals with a background in making yacht sails, so while it isn't made out of twigs and grass, it's still sturdy. This hanging shelter is also versatile and can be used both indoor and outdoors. This shelter is available now with a single selling for $349 and a double for $550.
