Today’s review is not for a gazebo, pergola, pavilion, arbor or any similar structure, and to be honest, its only relevance to these is that it’s still a really cool way to chill out in the garden.

So, if you’re wondering what this strange contraption is, then it’s what’s known as a garden hammock chair (or chair hammock).

We didn’t even know they existed until we started looking around for some more unusual items to showcase for you, but we have to say that they look like fun – and that’s all the excuse we needed to digress from our main theme for a day.

This particular model is called the Newberry Nami Chair, and it’s designed for either outdoor or indoor use.

Newberry Nami Chair ColoursThis chair is made from Denier nylon, and features a soft, weather-resistant cushion, a footrest, and a cup holder.

The frame is made from strong, kiln-dried, decay and warp-resistant hardwood, which makes it unusually durable.

It’s available in four different colours – Burgundy, Jet Black, Midnight Blue and Natural Sand.

The weight of this hammock chair is just over 25 pounds, and yet it can hold up to 350 pounds (provided you hang it from a strong enough tree or ceiling, of course).

As you’ve no doubt come to expect by now, it comes partially assembled, and they claim it only takes ten minutes to put it together. Having had a quick read of the two-page chair assembly instructions, which tell you how to hang a hammock chair, this sounds realistic.

We also have two other types of chair for you – the Hamilton Hammock Chair and the Clarion Cradle Chair.

Let’s start with the Hamilton chair, which has four variations:

Hamilton Hammock Chair With Wood Dowels Hamilton Hammock Chair With Aluminum Dowels

Hamilton Hammock Chair With Wood Dowels And Tripod Hamilton Hammock Chair With Aluminum Dowels And Tripod

Burgundy Jet Black Midnight Blue Natural Tan

Aluminum Dowels And Tripod

Midnight Blue Natural Tan

As you can see, you have a choice of 1.25 inch oak hardwood dowels or 1 inch black aluminium dowels, and you can buy it with or without the hammock chair stands.

Whichever model you opt for, the chair itself weighs just 7 pounds, with the optional chair hammock stand weighing an additional 10 pounds, while the load capacity is the same as the Nami Chair above, i.e. 350 pounds.

All models come with a matching 36 inch carrying case, an inflatable adjustable pillow, a cup holder, adjustable footrest and, of course, all of the necessary hanging hardware.

If you opt for the tripod too, then the package also includes a 48 inch carrying case for the stand.

The chairs are made of UV-resistant polyester (waterproofed and UV treated 600X600 denier polyester, which is the most durable and UV resistant material of its kind), the ropes are 3/8″ hollow braided polyethylene (UV resistant, with a 2,400 pounds tensile strength to give strength and durability), and the optional stands are made from high quality aluminium tubing.

Also like the Nami Chair, the Hamilton chairs come partially assembled, but you do get fully illustrated instructions, which look as though they should be easy enough to follow.

Clarion Cradle Chairs (Set Of 2) With Trailer Hitch StandAnd finally, we have the Clarion Cradle Chairs, which come as a set of two, and include a trailer hitch stand.

If you really want to outdo everybody else at the pre-game tailgating parties, then you need these unusual chairs.

Each chair weighs just 6 pounds, but can hold up to 350 pounds, although the stand, which is an additional 45 pounds, can only take a maximum load of 500 pounds (i.e. 250 pounds on each of the two arms).

The stand attaches to any standard 2″ trailer hitch receiver, and you can use it with either one or two of the chairs.

This package comes with 2 Clarion cradle chairs, the trailer hitch stand, footrests, 36″ carrying cases for the chairs, and all of the necessary hanging hardware. Note, however, that cupholders and inflatable pillows are not included with this model.

The chairs and ropes are made of the same materials as the Hamilton chairs, shown above – i.e. UV-resistant polyester and braided polyethylene – while the stand is made from powder-coated dull black steel.

Clarion Cradle Chairs - Alternate ColoursThe Clarion chairs come in three colours – blue, which is shown above, as well as both burgundy and green, shown here.

All of these three different makes look like they would be great fun, and the advantages are that they have a very high load capacity for a low chair weight, they’re easy to assemble, and some of them (e.g. the ones with the tripod stands especially) are portable too, so you can take them with you wherever you go – in fact you could leave them in the trunk all the time, then you’ve always got them with you.

In terms of overall look, comfort and quality, the best hammock chair is the Newberry Nami Chair, in our opinion, although we have to say that we like the portability of the Hamilton chairs (with the tripods, of course), while the Clarion Cradle Chairs are unique in their ability to enhance your tailgating parties.
