Eno SlapStraps Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

Great Idea.

Wow, these straps are a very useful tool, for the ENO hammock. I started out with just some climbing rope to hold my hammock up and it worked fine. Until one day when a close friend showed me how easy it was to setup with the SlapStraps. So I went out and bought a set, and love them. I use them all the time when I go out hiking or out at a park and just really want to setup my hammock. The only drawback is that if you are wanting to only carry a very light amount, the straps become an extra item. But in reality they save so much time setting up and tearing down, plus it is less than rope (like I was carrying around before). These SlapStraps are really a great idea by ENO. Just like everything that ENO sells, it feels like you are spending a lot for something, but it is all worth the money in the long run. Just try them out, don't like them you can return them. The worst you could do is not try them out and see for yourself.

I use it everywhere. The ENO Hammock is the best hammock ever! I know that is hard to believe but it is true. This is my second one, first one sadly was lost, or stolen from camping buddies. :) These straps are great. Yes true you could use a daisy chain webbing or any webbing, but if you are a climber you would want to make sure that these items are separate. Don't Mix tree straps for hammock use with climbing technical straps. Wear is different and you just dont want to mix the two. These are simple to use and marked with the eno label. Also for those who want longer straps, ENO does have the Strap PRo that is 22 inches longer, and for the minimalists they have a new micro version thats 4.5 oz instead of the 12 that these are. I use these straps in my Loft between two beams (secured beams) and take naps in the hammock almost daily!

Quick and Simple

These straps give an immediate, simple, and incredibly secure platform to hang your hammock with ease. The only problem is finding the right place, I wish they had another 2 or 3 feet of length. The problem is that if you find big trees, they have to be pretty close together because the straps aren't long enough to reach very far if the tree is more than about 6" in diameter. Overall though I find them to be highly reliable and durable - I have no worries about these straps when climbing into my hammock!

Easy and Reliable

I use these straps for the ENO Double Nest Hammock. The straps are VERY easy to use and VERY reliable. The only issue I have with them is that they are slightly too short. If you are trying to use them on a tree larger than 12 or so inches in diameter they wont be long enough... I would recommend bringing rope as a backup in case there are only large trees where you will be setting up the hammock.

Great product!

I purchased these straps when I got my ENO double net hammock. The only problem I have with them is that they say they have a max rating of 220 lbs., but if I plan on using my hammock with my girlfriend, then we will exceed this rating (my fault not hers!). I'm hoping that this rating is per strap, and that both straps combine have a rating of 440 lbs. I guess we'll find out ;)

Room for improvement

Awesome product but occasionally I find it's too short. I fixed the problem by taking similar webbing and attaching it to the end loop, then I tied a loop at the end of the new webbing (so the slap strap has something to loop through around the tree). After repeating that process on the other strap I now have and extra 6 feet total to set up between bigger trees I may experience while backpacking.
ENO Lounger at REI on 05/05/2008

Very easy to use.

I bought these to go with my ENO single hammock. I can set up my hammock in about a minute's time with these. They are gentle on trees unless they have brittle bark. The length is sufficient unless the trees you are setting up between are large. I also recommend buying two climbing carabiners to go with these because the ones provided with the hammock can damage the fabric.

Nap at Work

I love these. easy to set-up, compact (enough), and I keep it in my truck at all times. Sometimes it's slow at work and I need a nap, or more importantly, I can do my work from my hammock outside that I can put up in less than 5 minutes. This has made my productivity increase believe it or not.
Also, great for Kayak Camping.

Easy Setup

These make setting up the hammock a breeze! They are a bit on the heavy side but the ease of use offsets the weight in my opinion. These are plenty long in heavily forested Tennessee, but if you are going to be somewhere where trees are more sparse it may be a good idea to upgrade the to pro version for some extra length.

very useful with ENO hammocks

These straps come in handy when trying to set up your ENO hammock. The straps give you about 9 feet more to work with, and they are very easy to use (just loop the straps through, and clip it in place). Get these if you have an ENO hammock.

Took them back

First thing I've returned to REI.

These straps are very convenient, pretty well thought out, but have two major design flaws that caused me to return them.

First, the pre-sewn loops, while convenient, always seem to be 3-4 inches away from ideal. Which ordinarily wouldn't be a problem except...

Issue two - stretch. These straps stretch like crazy under load. I'd guess the hammock dropped 20-25 inches under load stretch. Tested both the hammock and straps for stretch, and its the straps.

In fact, I tried pitching the hammock nearly horizontally taught, pulling as hard as I could to set the carabiners and still the hammock sagged nearly 2 feet under load.

Returned them and swapped out for webbing straps and problem was solved.

Good idea ENO, wrong material.

Slap Strap Pro

I bought the slap strap pro set (not at REI) and found them to be super stretchy and pretty much unusable. I would string my hammock tight and about 5 feed off the ground. When I sat in it each strap would stretch over 5 inches in length (crude measuring system) and my bottom would barely be off the ground. I thought the stretch would lessen after some use but after a weekend I returned them as it was still bad. Great overall design. They just need some better webbing.
Darren D at REI on 07/07/2010

Too much stretch

Have set it up 3 times for over-nighters with ENO Single Nest since purchase in June. The only time my butt was not on the ground at 2am was when I set up my hammock at chest height and straight. Still sagged 2 feet. Way too much stretch.

The set up was easy and impressive though. My first time I even out-thunk myself and realized how easy these things were to use.

I'd use it for day time use only.

Good idea, poor material choice

The idea behind the design of these straps is wonderful...BUT...unfortunately they stretch like crazy!!!!

If you plan on putting anything in the hammock and use these straps, you'll need to adjust them a few hours later to account for the stretching. Also, they don't stay stretched out!!! Once you remove the load, the straps will revert back to their original length. Think RUBBER BANDS!!!

I really hope eno will re-evaluate the material choice to something that doesn't stretch.
Michael Michael Motorcycle at REI on 05/05/2012

Good idea but poor materials.

The material used in this product in incredibly stretchy. I only used them once and woke up touching the ground three times that night. Do yourself a favor and buy two 12' hanks of 1" military spec webbing and learn to tie a couple knots. The webbing is considerably stronger, without flex and lighter to boot.
THE L1ZARD KING at REI on 03/03/2013

These are now obsolete.

These straps are obsolete. There is no reason to spend your money on these huge straps. The slap strap pro and slap strap micro are actually longer and weigh a lot less.These work just fine but if you are backpacking, get the upgraded version.I don't know whystill carries these when ENO makes a far superior product.
greg85 at REI on 08/08/2009

waste of money

I bought these thinking i needed them, but you really don't. Not to mention that they are way overpriced and no more tree friendly than accessory rope. Plus, shouldn't these things be free after spending [$]??[*]

if you tie a not to make your hammock more comfortable, you will never get them undone

Neutral Reviews:

a Good Start

Slap straps are for people who want to conveniently hang a typical camping hammock. And that they do with ease. but thats it.

the good.

they are easy. they make sense just from looking at them so anybody can use them and they dont have to put much thought into their use. You dont have to learn a bunch about suspension to make these work, you can just look loop and clip, easy. If someone uneducated on it tried to use my ultralight suspension they would be confused at best and hurt them selves at worst, so Easy can sometimes be worth the space that these take up.

I like that ENO is promoting webbing straps instead of rope like other companies, rope IS bad for trees so it is nice that ENO is pushing people to use webbing instead, GO ENO.

They do what they are supposed to do and are relatively portable.

the bad

the prostraps are just as good as the slap straps. though some people may be worried and want the extra weight allowance of the slap straps.

both kinds of straps are bulky as hell compaired to advanced Hammock camping suspensions and tree straps. Even the huge rope biner tree strap suspension I have on my DoubleNest now is smaller and more portable than either of the eno straps

Another product out there python straps is an improvement on both kinds of straps takes about the same space as the pro straps has the same strength and has tons and tons more loops to adjust your hammock with.

The slap straps or the pro straps are not perfect suspensions, but they are decent beginner suspensions. I used these straps on many a trip and kept me in the tree long enough to keep my interest up to be willing to learn some better methods. So while I dont plan on using these kinds of straps any longer I think highly of them and would recommend them to beginner hammockers.
AlanValentinus at REI on 02/02/2012

Good, but a little short.

I used these with the ENO double nest and they worked great. However, they were a bit short and I had to put the hammock in the 2nd ideal spot. The first spot had too thick of trees and the strap was just a foot or so too short.
Then I read reviews and I found out about the pro line and the micro lines of slap straps. Im going to be returning these and getting the micro lines because they are like 2 bucks more and they are 1/4 the weight, and like 2 feet longer than the originals. I dont know why these are still even sold if there is such better ones out there.
VadenM at REI on 06/06/2010

too much whiz, not enough bang

My sister has slap straps and i used them for a month or two but when i bought my own hammock instead of slap straps, i got 2 12 foot sections of rope and i works much better. It makes it so you can make your hammock as tight/loose as you want to. Plus, the ropes, for all 24 feet, were only eight dollars!
mikey_strick at REI on 10/10/2010

It Works Wel

I have to agree with the other reviews need to be longer with more loops for a more flexible conecting points. They donot pack well and are heavy, though I would not want a weak material and diffently would like more loops to connect to.
