A hot tub hammock? Even better than a hot tub time machine! Relaxing, swinging, sexy, and using one won't force me to relive my days of wearing acid-washed pleated jeans. And the coup de grace: a hot tub hammock actually exists. It's not just a hot tub hammock either. In addition to serving as your personal cocooned spa, the Hydro Hammock can also be your portable hot tub liner (for sand and snow), your hammock water bed, or your swinging swimming pool.

Available as single- and double-layer models, the Hydro Hammock optionally pairs with an LPG water heater system to warm and fill the sack for soaking, cooling off, or even taking a bath. The system is fed by a standard garden hose, a hose draw from a stream or lake, or a cache of water already in the hammock that continually recirculates to achieve and maintain desired temperatures.

Hydro Hammock material is a sealed synthetic high-tensile-strength fabric. It is sturdy enough to accommodate 50 gallons of water and 2 adults, though creators point out just 20 gallons are needed for "an amazing quality bath." Hmmm, two consenting adults wet and rocking in a secluded hammock? I think I could have an amazing quality something with only 10. Single layer hammocks are ideal for those seeking more portability; they fit inside the heater system case. Double layer hammocks are designed to hold an insulation pad between the 2 layers, as well as to allow a water fill between them to create the hammock water bed effect.

Hyrdro Hammock water systems are portable and meet checked bag requirements. The company also plans to produce electric and solar-heated versions in the future. Head to Kickstarter by July 29, 2015 to pledge for your discounted single- or double-layer Hydro Hammock, or the complete Hydro Hammock system with LPG water heater.

Just be careful on the dismount.
