This is the Hangout
, a portable sofa or lounger for two that can be filled with air within seconds.
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.
The product from the Netherlands ($70 + $16 shipping to the US) became a hit after the Dutch company Lamzac released the video of their product.
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.
The brand name Lamzac was inspired by the Dutch word Lamzak which means "a lazy person or literally an inactive bag." The Hangout can easily be inflated as deflated and can be stored in a small package that you can take anywhere with you. Looks cozy and comfy.
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.
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.
