Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a camping enthusiast, you should be able to appreciate how simple and time-saving it is to use hammock straps instead of ropes. To be fair, there’s some nostalgia and rugged outdoors charm tied to ropes and knots (if you’ll pardon the pun), but there are some straps out there that are sure to dispel this charm. So, how to recognize the best hammock straps on the market?
Simple, just remember the holy trinity of weight, durability, and versatility. The first criterion is particularly important for hikers and backpackers, people who plan to carry their hammocks and tree straps for quite some distance.
The second criterion is important for both camping hammocks and their domestic counterparts intended for lounging in the backyard. You should want something durable and able to hold your weight without fear of gravity at worst, or something to withstand some added weight and the duress of other… nocturnal activities, at best.
Finally, the third criterion simply refers to how many loops there are on the strap. In other words, how many levels of adjustability you can get out of them. Admittedly, they’re somewhat behind ropes in this regard, but it’s only a small price to pay.
