Built for camping and backyard play, the Roo Jr. has tear-resistant and water-repellent fabric and is ready for any rough-and-tumble adventure.
Our Roo Jr. features the same safety measures as our Roo Single hammock. Mini Kanga Claw™ carabiners ensure weight is placed on the strongest area of the carabiner at all times while your child hangs. The Dyneema Racer Slings™ support 5,000 lb of force each. Its no-tip design keeps kids from tumbling out unexpectedly, although we still recommend parents keep a close eye.

Our Gravitas™ 40D diamond nylon ripstop fabric is tough enough for active play and all-weather camping. Tear-resistant with a safe water-repellant treatment makes messes and mud easy to manage. 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 designed for younger campers under 54" and ages 4-10. Campers should be supervised when hanging in the Roo Jr. hammock. With a max capacity of 400 lb, however, the Roo Jr. can hang two people comfortably. Parents and siblings can hop in, 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 ft long, and the Roo Single is 8 ft long. We recommend the Roo Jr. for children aged 4-10 or campers 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.
