Bringing the hammock is always a good idea, especially after hiking all morning. I have a couple hammocks, but this is my ENO hammock with XL atlas straps. It's a pricier hammock, but it's lightweight, compact, and durable. I can set it up probably in 3 minutes. Many hammocks come with straps, but I bought the XL atlas straps because they can stretch out to trees spread further apart, and do well with wider trunks. Yay hammocks! Yay naps! Also, kurt doesn't know I'm taking his picture, but he stole my hammock so fair game!
