Here's what others have to say...

Holds weight

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These straps allow you to set up and adjust a hammock very fast. They are slightly heavier than some similar options but the ease of setup make it worthwhile in my mind. If you are trying to shave every ounce from your backpacking setup you may want to consider something else. I am 200lbs and have not had a problem with these stretching.

Adjustable, but heavy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These straps are easy to choose what length you want, because of the many loops, but it makes them heavy. You are also limited to the loops, because they are not easy to adjust in smaller increments. I prefer other setups, like the hammockbliss straps, for the weight. These also have a little more stretch than I would like. However, these things are tough as nails, and I'm not sure there is a longer set of straps on the market.

Super convenient, good price, some cons

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are great, durable, convenient and they should last a lifetime. Only complaint is that they are heavy. If you're looking for an ultralight setup, pass on these and get some paracord and make your own.

Best Straps

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Durable, tons of different ways to sling these make them the easiest most versatile straps. Minimal stretch also means you won't wake up on the ground in the middle of the night.

Atlas straps > Pros > Normal slap straps

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had my Pros since June of 2012 and at the time it was either the pros or the normal SlapStraps, do yourself a if your trying to bounce between the two and get the pros, they are longer and give you a lot more places to hook your carabineers. The only problem I have with them which is fixed by the Atlas straps is that sometimes in order to get the hammock nice and taunt which is ideal for me I have to go around the tree, post, or whatever else I'm putting the straps on to make sure they are going be the right distance in order to get my hammock how I like it. With the Atlas straps they are the same length as the Pros but instead have double the amount of loops to hook your carabineers which makes adjusting how tight it is much easier. No matter what though these things will hold a ton of weight and will have you laying comfortable in a hammock in no time.

Good system, but stretchy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Like most other reviews, I found these to stretch pretty bad... especially when two people jump into the double hammock. You can expect this out of nylon webbing, but it would be nice to see this design made with a spectra/dyneema blend in the future.

Other than the stretch, they are really easy to use and setup. I keep them around for the simplicity, but I prefer using webbing and paracord for a perfect, custom setup.

Responded on

Hi, Joe. I'm researching hammock systems and am nearly ready to purchase, but I am still undecided as to whether I should spring for these pro straps or just use the 550 cord I got from my local Army surplus. I tend to like the minimalist aspects of backpacking and so often highly value versatility in my gear, as well as weight savings of course. With that in mind would you recommend I go with these or just use the paracord I have? Also, if I go with the cord option, how viable is it to simply tie a bowline in the tree end and run the cord through the loop as it wraps around the tree and then another bowline to attach it directly to the hammock? Or do I need something between the cord and the hammock? Is this the purpose of the webbing you mentioned? Thanks.

I would say everything about these rocks except they stretch a little too much for my liking! They are easy to set up and easy to tear down,easy to adjust if you know how. I love them just wish they stretched less.

Makes the hammock life easy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've tried using other straps with previous hammocks, and have always ended up having issues. They've made using these straps extremely easy, and they're also super compact, light, and durable.

Hyped on my eagle nest hammock set up :)

Makes Hammock Set-Up a Cinch!

I've had the ENO Double Nest Hammock & always struggled to rig it up using cam straps/whatever I could find. These make setting your hammock up a breeze & best of all they pack down nice & small! Was great for our recent backpacking trip in the Uintas.

Like a few other reviewers, I wish there were more attachment points, but overall I am so excited about this product! (ended up getting my husband a set too!)

Not as good as the atlas straps

I bought these for my eno hammock and was disappointed to find that the attachment points are only located every 2 feet or so , resulting in very little adjustment. If you want a super effective and quick hammock strap go with the atlas straps by Eno, it has a lot more attachment points ( every six inches or so) and doesn't seem to sag like the slap strap.

these are the way to go

These slap straps are the best for pitching the ENOs. You can rig up other systems, but these make it so simple.

Pretty necessary.

I wouldn?t have been able to set up my SingleNest or my boyfriend?s DoubleNest without these a few times. They do need to be adjusted over time as there is some sag when you're in the hammock for a long period of time. I would recommend also keeping a couple of carabiners handy to get the height just right.

Slap crap pro

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Used these a few times, very disappointed in these for the price. Started sagging almost as soon as you lay on it. By the end of the night my bottom was touching the ground. Very happy with the hammock, but no go on these straps.

Stronger than it looks

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

At first glance I thought there's no way these things will hold me up. But it's such an ingenious design and it works flawlessly. Worth every penny, so much better than trying to rig up some rope or tie down straps.

Love them

yeah you could just buy some rope and use that to hang up your hammock but let me say this first, I'm just too damn lazy to do that. I love these straps and they are amazing. Don't drink about it, just buy them and you will be happy.

Pretty good and simple to use

These are the easiest straps for hanging up hammocks that I have ever used. It only takes a few minutes to get things set up and they're super easy to adjust. With that being said I have had some problems with slipping before. I found that if you wrap the straps around the tree twice instead of once it helps or if you can wrap them around a tree just above a branch then you won't slip down past the branch. All in all a very easy system to use that is lightweight.

Mixed Emotions

I feel the straps are inadequate. They are a single use item. I have used them and they have slipped more than once and I have ended up with my backside on the ground - not a crash and burn, just slipped down the tree. Now I use two 8 foot sections of climbing rope and simple boy scout knots to get the job done.

I guess if you are counting ounces then you'll be happy with them, they are light weight and compact and they hold the weight but if I had it to do again, I would not purchase them.

Hand in Hand

An absolute must if you buy the Eno Double Nest Hammock. Takes about 3 minutes at most to set up and get to relaxing. Fantastic design works for all size trees.
