MMG Bivy Hammock

Molly Mac Gear Store –> MMG Bivy Hammock

The Molly Mac Gear (MMG) bivy hammock is derived from the Mors Scarf, by Mors Kochanski. It is a hammock, a breathable bivy sack, an emergency coverall, a scarf, and more!

We thought about calling it The Western Hammock, or The Desert Hammock because you can use it as a hammock with trees, or as a bivvy sack under a tarp without trees. The last prototype was named survival hammock. With it’s public release — it is now known as the MMG Bivy Hammock.

If you know how to pitch your tarp on the ground, using hiking poles, then this hammock/bivvy will serve you well in many different types of terrain. I wish we had them in Big Bend National Park, where the Chisos Mountains offerred good places to hang, but the desert back country was completely devoid of trees.

Molly Mac Gear Shamu, Baby Orca and Jerry Chair synthetic underquilts, with silnylon outer layers, complement the MMG Bivy Hammock well in temperatures above freezing. They insulate your hammock in the air, as well as on the ground. It is no longer necessary to carry a foam pad just in case you have to go to ground.

  1. RE: MMG Bivy Hammock

    1. Can a foam pad be inserted between the layers? Do you or any users have experience using it with a pad?

    2. When on my back, I need to sleep with my shoulders as flat as possible – i.e. not “scrunched” forward. Would a bridge be needed to achieve this posture in your hammock?

    Thanks

    • Yes, you can put a pad between the layers.

      As for shoulder squeeze, I have never noticed any… but you will have to try gathered end hammocks to know if it can work for you. If other gathered end hammocks work, the Bivy Hammock will almost certainly work. It is longer than most, and plenty wide.

  2. Hi Tim! I can answer the 2nd question. I found no squeeze when laying in this hammock. I have a big Brazilian hammock & the MMG Bivy is just as comfortable. Plenty of room in this hammock

  3. Bivvy Hammock, interesting concept. I, however weight in at approx. 250 lbs. Any future plans to accommodate someone like myself?

    • If you place an order and request 1.9 oz ripstop for a heavier hanger, I’ll order the fabric and add that option in the Gear Store.
