The 8 Best Climbing Cargo Nets

video play icon

This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Whether for kids or adults, no jungle gym or obstacle course is complete without a good climbing cargo net. Sometimes also known as rope ladders, these offer a serious vertical challenge to users, testing their hand, arm, leg and foot strength all at once. We've included models made of both nylon webbing and rope, as well as those suitable for both children and full-grown athletes. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

December 30, 2018:

It goes without saying that climbing nets -- especially those intended for children -- pose inherent dangers. Any activity that gets users off the ground, without a safety harness or rope, can result in accidental falls, and thus injuries. So it's best to take a few precautions before going out and buying a cargo net for your kids, or yourself. Whether it's outdoors or indoors, make sure that the ground over which you're installing the unit is padded, whether naturally or with rubber mulch, sand or rubber mats. Also, make sure the net itself is safely secured to whatever you're attaching it to, whether it's the frame of an existing play set or one you've fashioned yourself. And, as always, make sure there's someone there to supervise when you're actually climbing -- that applies especially to kids, who should always have an adult watching them.
