This 12-ounce polypropylene perch disappears into any pack and takes only two minutes to hang, so you won’t hesitate to bring it on every hike. We used this hammock for daily lunch breaks on the trail and as an ultralight bed on a 15-day trip in the Colombian Amazon. Tip: Learn the slipped sheet bend knot, so you can remove the steel carabineers and save 2 ounces. Downside: It’s small (best for people under 5’11” and 200 pounds)and offers no bug or weather protection. $20; 12 oz.; grandtrunk.com
