Ease into a hammock from Alton Goods
Good friends Matt Laraghy and Sam Schumann launched the boutique adventure brand Alton Goods in August this year from a foundation of love for chilling out in the great Australian outdoors.
Jointly motivated by an obsession for quality minimalist gear and outdoor adventure, Matt and Sam created Alton Goods to produce high quality equipment, designed for exploration. The aim is to make it easier to travel lighter and go further on your next glorious Australian beach or bush outing. The Kerouac hammock was born after a six-night hike on the Clarence River in Guy Fawkes National Park, New South Wales. A friend brought along a lightweight hammock instead of a tent which got Matt and Sam thinking, where can I get one of those? The solution was to make one themselves. Alton Goods are proud to say it is a Southeast Queensland company, from idea to design, assembly and testing only working overseas for the manufacturer stage of the product.
The hammock comes in a compact and clever little bundle and is made from ultra-light parachute nylon, strong and easy to construct. Weighing only 550 grams these durable handmade hammocks are perfect for attaching to a couple of palm trees or coastal she oaks on your day at the beach. Kerouac hammocks can be purchased online or through Stock and Supply.
