Gear Review: ENO ProNest Hammock

Set up camp anywhere with this easy-to-use hammock.

A little downtime in the ENO ProNest Hammock takes the sting out of a big-mileage day. This superlight nylon cradle is wide enough for two, and it packs down to softball size. For basecamping, get the SlapStraps ($22, 12 oz.) to speed setup. The two 90-inch-long strips of webbing wrap around trees, roof racks, or boulders, so that even without perfectly spaced supports, you can get it just so. $65; 13 oz.;
