Summary

I have owned these straps and the Atlas ones. These straps stretch like crazy once in the hammock and you have to re-situate the location on the tree. As you use them they continue to stretch throughout the night and make for a very uncomfortable night's sleep.

I would recommend ENO's Atlas straps over these.

Pros

  • Portable
  • Multi-hookup locations

Cons

  • Weak
  • Stretch

The setup of these straps is very simple. Find two trees 16-20 steps apart and you'll have a place to set up your hammock. The problem with the straps is that once you are in the hammock they will make a lot of stretching noise and the hammock will begin to stretch until you are close to sitting on the ground, if not already there.

The straps do this every time I have used them. It's not like they stretch for a few times and then stay stretched out. They constantly stretch no mater how many times you use them.

Great product. Makes hammock setup xxx easy. They do expand overnight with the moisture from the dew. You want to compensate for that or you will wake up w/ your bottom on the ground...or very close...lol.

Pros

  • Easy setup
  • Great compact ightweight storage pack

Cons

  • Expands on contact w/temperature change

Great product, easy setup.

Summary

A simple to use suspension system from ENO.

Pros

  • Ease of use
  • simplicity
  • light weight

Cons

  • stretch

I bought these before upgrading to the SlapStrap Pro which is plagued with the same stretch issues. After several hours these give A LOT.

I would recommend an alternative if you intend to do more than just lounge in the backyard with this hammock.
