    by fromA Far stretch from Home Folks!! I have three sets of these straps, and all I can say, is they keep each other good company in my shed. The memory and tensile strength is such, that by the morning, your behind is on the ground. Or below!! I use REI climbing rope - which works wonderfully, and won't stretch anywhere near the amount these straps do. The rope works hard and is versatile, while the straps hardly work at all. For day use, the slap straps will work. But for a good nights' sleep, have the folks at REI cut you a piece of climbing rope.

    by fromBelive the The theory behind the design is good. ENO's choice of material however, is not. When used at their full length, they're only slightly less elastic than bungee cord. If they'd have used something with less elasticity (A LOT less) this would be a great product. That said, for lighter people (less than 130lb (59kg) these "might" not be too elastic. Also, they're only load rated to 200lbs where the hammock is rated at 400. Big safety issue here! The literature is misleading, in my opinion. Yes, 200+200=400 but that's not how a hammock works Example: A 200lb load in a hammock hung at 30 degrees generates 200lbs of tension on each strap (too close for comfort) But that's a static load, not a dynamic one, so be sure to lay perfectly still otherwise any "bounce" will increase the tension over the rated limit. At 20 degrees the tension increases to 292 lbs. Incidentally , at 20 degrees, a 130lb person would generate 190lbs of tension, still within the rating but cutting it close. But the strap material is so elastic that most likely you'd be on the ground. So what now? Pull it tighter (decreas the hang angle)? At 5 degrees that 130lb load is now generating over 700lbs of tension, well over the max.! The options are: Choice A) Hang it with a high angle so that when you get in it stretches and you end up on the ground B) pull it tight and risk a failure C) hang high accomodate the stretch, with a steep enough angle to negate loading issues and need a ladder to get in?

    by fromAwfully stretchy! I'm either going to return these or use them for a gear hammock. The stretch in these straps is almost absurd. I hung my hammock at almost shoulder level and still ended up with my butt dragging the ground. Inexcusable.

    by fromstretch waaaaaaay too much! Ok, first thing to know is that this review is coming from the viewpoint of a backpacker. That being said, here we go. These straps would be great if all you did was car camp or hung in the backyard; they're very simple and easy to set up. HOWEVER, these straps stretch WAY too much! The reason being is because they're made of Nylon, which stretches over time. Because of this, I DO NOT recommend these for backcountry camping. Believe me when I say it's no fun to wake up with your backside on the ground. These straps would be great if made of poly or another type of webbing...nylon just isn't the right material. If ENO ever makes these out of something besides nylon, I'll definitely buy them. So to recap, great for car camping...horrible for overnight, backcountry camping. The design is simple and easy. However, if you plan to spend any significant amount of time in them, be prepared to hang higher than usual, otherwise you'll end up on the ground.

    by fromDo not use these straps I use a hammock when hiking and camping. I would NOT use these straps other than for a nap in the yard. These straps are very stretchy. This has a negative impact on the way the hammock hangs. Instead of nylon straps you should use polyester webbing (similar to your seatbelt). The polyester will not stretch overnight leaving you dragging on the ground and will generally be stronger and less likely to break. If you want some great information on materials to use and the correct way to hang a hammock I suggest visiting the hammock forums website.

    by fromBogus straps I do a LOT of backpacking and I NEVER sleep on the ground. I use the ENO double nest hammock which is great. However, these straps are bogus. I have used them at least 6 times now. Every time without fail, they stretch so much that I end up no where near flat, and my back is on the ground. Every time I have had to get up during the night and tighten the straps. This helps minimally because after I tighten it to the next loop, it stretches again and when I get up the second time, I can't pull it tight enough to catch another loop. Much better to just add a carabiner to 10 feet of non stretchable rope, loop that around the tree, then use a figure 9 rope tightener where you connect to the hammock. This sets up just as easy & quickly as the straps and you won't be up adjusting it during the night.

    by fromWaste of Money I picked these up when I first started hammock camping, and they now sit unused in my closet. I dislike them for several reasons. The Pros -Quick to set up The Cons (Begin Rant) 1) My main complaint is that it be difficult get the proper tension on my hammock when using these straps. Granted, they are quick and simple to wrap around a tree and clip in (I use carabiners on my Clark hammock), but nearly every single time I have camped with these straps, that perfect 'spot' on the straps where I could need to clip in to get the correct tension to make my hammock comfortable would be located between 2 of the loops. To fix this I would have to rehang the straps or untie and readjust my carabiners. 2) They are weak. The listed rating on these straps is something like 250-300 lbs. What if you want to have a second person in the hammock? I guess you cant... My guess is that this is because the loops are separate lengths of webbing sewn onto the main strap this might creates a weak point. 3) Overpriced. I have since bought 2 lengths of climbing webbing that are listed at 800 lbs for less than $5 for the pair. This is a neat idea in theory, but one that fails in execution. Do yourself a favor. Go buy yourself some climbing webbing (straps) and LEARN TO TIE A BOWLINE KNOT! Its something everyone should know. That will allow you to set up your hammock faster, adjust the tension quicker, bear twice the weight, and is 5x less expensive. (End Rant)

    by fromNot what you want. I should have paid attention to the other reviews. It's incredibly difficult to get the correct tension with these nylon straps. I can have it as tight as possible, and as soon as I sit in the hammock, I'm on the ground. There are more effective ways to hang your hammock. Just don't be fooled into thinking this is the way to go.
