Model: Adventura Combo

The Adventura is a three-part system: the hammock, a pair of slings, and the versatile Nubé shelter. The Nubé is a shaped, waterproof tarp. It has a hanging mesh bug screen and an integrated gear sling that keeps up to 200 pounds of supplies dry and easily accessible underneath you. Also cool: You can roll up and clip back the hammock, bug net, and sling, and just use the Nubé as a cooking tarp. The Nubé engulfs the hammock like an A-frame tent, while cinchable closures on each end seal out even blowing rain and keep water from wicking down the straps (fixing a common hammock problem). During a weeklong trip in Virginia’s Jefferson National Forest, the Adventura withstood hail and freezing rain. Downsides: It’s pricey, weighty, and setup takes practice. $399; 4 lbs. 14 oz.;
