Everyone Is Talking About This Genius Couch From The Netherlands

Get this for your next camping trip.

Posted on

There are a lot of clever ways to lounge around.

But this product, the Lamzac Hangout, is the lounge-iest thing WE'VE EVER SEEN.

When compressed, it fits in a little pouch and weighs two pounds. Inflated, it's about 6.5 feet long and three feet wide, which means it can probably fit one human lying down, and a few humans sitting down.

When compressed, it fits in a little pouch and weighs two pounds. Inflated, it's about 6.5 feet long and three feet wide, which means it can probably fit one human lying down, and a few humans sitting down.

Lamzac is the Netherlands-based company that created the Hangout ($70 + $16 shipping to the US), a sofa-like lounger that inflates within seconds.

According to the about page, the company's name was inspired by the Dutch word lamzak, which means "a lazy person or literally, an inactive bag."

To set up the Hangout, unroll the bag and wave it through the air. Then roll up the end to pressurize the bag, and clip it closed.

That's it. That's all there is.

God, it looks comfortable. This man has reached peak chill.

The Lamzac Hangout took off in September, when the company posted a video titled, "Great for chilling in the park." It garnered 12 million views and over 255k shares.

The video's popularity was beyond the company's wildest expectations and the Hangouts were immediately sold out.

As of last week, LamZac claimed that their first batch is due to ship on April 4, and that they are working on a new release date.

Product manager Damian Baselmans told BuzzFeed, "In a matter of hours we pushed our production capacity to as far as we could go, while ensuring we keep our build quality as high as possible."

"We're still working very hard on catching up to everybody ... because [the reaction] was truly was much bigger and faster than we ever expected," he said of the shipping delays.

The company employs just eight people and hopes to eventually sell the Hangout on Amazon.

In another comment, the company wrote: "The order of magnitude which we grew with in just one week is something amazing and not something we predicted beforehand... As you can imagine we would love nothing more than to be able to sell a Hangout to all and we're putting everything we've got into making that a reality. For the time being, we hope people can muster the patience until we're back in stock. "
