A hammock for our smallest campers
The Roo Jr. is designed for campers under 54" in height and requires supervision for children under 10. Built for adventure, the Roo Jr. features the same safety measures as our Roo Single hammock.
Kid-tested strength and durability
Our Gravitas 40D nylon ripstop fabric prevents the Roo Jr. from ripping or tearing during use. A safe water-repellant treatment makes messes and mud easy to manage, and our easy-pack stuff sack provides secure storage. Play on, kiddos.
13 kN Mini Kanga claw carabiners included with the Roo Jr. ensure weight is placed on the major axis, or the strongest area of the carabiner, at all times while your child hangs. Our Dyneema Racer Slings support 5,000 lb of force each. With an industry-leading load capacity of 400 lb and its no-tip design, the Roo Jr. makes for the perfect camp snuggle station for parents and kids.
Beat the heat
In warm weather, air flow is key. Our breathable fabric keeps kids cool in the Roo Jr. Breathability means faster drying, too.
Our Gravitas Fabric is broken-in prior to use with a crinkle treatment for softness and easy packability.
Small and mighty
Packable and compact in size, the Roo Jr. helps the family travel light and pop-up for play anywhere. Its light weight doesn't sacrifice strength, with a capacity of 400 lb.
When paired with our Python 10 straps, the Roo Jr. hangs safely from 13kn Mini Kanga Claw carabiners and Dyneema Racer Slings. Its no-tip design keeps kids from tumbling out unexpectedly, although we still recommend parents keep a close eye.
Gravitas 40D fabric is tough for active play and all-weather camping. Tear-resistant with a water-repellant stuff sack, the Roo Jr. is designed as a sturdy sidekick for kid campers.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to order carabiners and straps?
Each Roo Jr. comes with a set (2) of Mini Kanga Claw carabiners. Straps are not included. Order a set of Python 10 straps (or one of our other straps) to get your hammock off the ground and your adventure on its way.
Why are there loops along the sides of the Roo Jr.?
Gear loops are for quick access to gear. Kids can attach their water bottle, ball cap, headlamp, or any other gear they want at the ready.
Who can hang in the Roo Jr.?
The Roo Jr. is perfect for younger campers under 54" from ages 4-10. Campers should be supervised while hanging in the Roo Jr. solo. With a max capacity of 400 lb, however, the Roo Jr. can hang two people comfortably, parents too!
What is the difference between the Roo Jr. and Roo Single?
The biggest difference between the Roo Jr. and Roo Single is the length of the hammock. The Roo Jr. is 7' long, and the Roo Single is 8' long. We recommend the Roo Jr. for the littlest members of your camp crew under 54” tall.
How do I wash my Roo Jr.?
Hand washing your hammock with cold water and biodegradable detergent is best for extending its useful life, but it can also be cleaned in a washing machine (front-load machines are best). Washing machine instructions:
- Remove the carabiners and slings prior to wash.
- If the Roo Jr. is soiled or stained, use a small amount of powdered detergent (preferably biodegradable). Do not use fabric softener, bleach, or stain removal products.
- Wash the hammock by itself using the gentle/cold water setting.
- Hang to dry. The hammock will dry quickly in warm/dry environment. Do not stuff back in stuff sack damp or wet.
