It delivers this comfort and stability through OPEONGO’s unique, slackline inspired, suspension system. By wrapping high tensile webbing straps around the tree and pulling them back from both sides of the trunk it is able to achieve a four point connection system for unbeatable comfort.
Using this four point system, along with tension and two spreader bars OPEONGO are able to deliver a sturdy, flat platform that feels most similar to a high quality cot. The webbing also provides spring like a mattress that helps absorb movement without being overly tippy. This flat sleeping surface means you have the ability to sleep in any position, back, side or even on your front.
