Man in Hammock

If you enjoy relaxing in a hammock you will want to be sure that you invest in a set of quality straps to secure your hammock. Otherwise you could wake up on the ground. Many campgrounds and parks no longer allow the use of ropes to secure hammocks. The material of the straps is much more tree friendly as compare to rope. Additionally, the straps are more secure, lightweight, and you don’t need to tie any knots.

In this article we’ll look at the top five options that are currently available.

The Best Hammock Straps

5. Wise Owl Outfitters Adjustable Hammock Straps

The Wise Owl Outfitters straps come in a two-pack. Each strap is 10-feet long, for a combined length of 20 feet. Each strap has 19 loops, for 38 total loops. The straps are 1-inch wide.

These straps are rated at 400 pounds. That’s considerably less than some others on this list, but these straps are strong and quite reliable (triple stitched). Most people don’t have any need for straps that can hold more than 400 pounds, but be sure that you buy something that does meet your needs.

This package comes with a carrying bag and two carabiners. Unlike many of the competitors, Wise Owl Outfitters does offer several different color options. You can get black, blue, or camouflage straps. The black straps also come with your choice of several different colors for the stitching.

Pros:

  • Comes with two carabiners
  • Multiple color options
  • Satisfaction guarantee

Cons:

  • Rated for less weight (400 pounds) than some of the other options
  • Price is higher than some competitors

4. ENO Eagles Nest Outfitters – Atlas Hammock Suspension System

The Atlas hammock straps from ENO are among the most popular. The price is a little higher than the other competitors mentioned here, but if you feel more comfortable buying from a very established company that is known for reliability, you may not mind paying the extra money.

The set comes with two straps, each is 9-feet long. These are the shortest straps mentioned on this page, so if you need longer straps this would not be your best option. They do have an option to buy a pack of two straps that are each 13.5-feet long. They are more expensive, but this is a great option if you need as much length as possible.

The Atlas straps are made from durable PolyFilament webbing and can hold up to 400 pounds. These straps are not rated to hold as much weight as some others on the list, but if you don’t have a need to hold more than 400 pounds these are great, reliable straps.

To secure the straps you simply pass through one of the loops and pull tight. Easy to set up and take down.

Pros:

  • Trusted brand
  • Option to buy 13.5-feet long straps (longest of any on this page)
  • A few color options

Cons:

  • Only 9 feet long
  • Price
  • Rated for less weight (400 pounds) than some of the other options

3. PYS Outdoor XL Hammock Straps

The XL hammock straps from PYS Outdoor come in 2-packs, with each strap measuring 10-feet long. The straps are 1-inch wide and can easily be wrapped around trees with no need to tie knots. Simply loop and pull tight.

With a strength of up to 2,000 pounds, these straps are very secure. Each strap is made with 16 – 20 loops, and each loop is triple stitched for added strength and stability. You can choose either 32 loops (16 per strap) or 40 loops (20 per strap). We recommend 40 loops for the best strength, but the 32 loop option is a few dollars cheaper.

Use with any climbing-strength carabiner and you are ready to go (many hammocks come with carabiners). These straps come with a small carrying bag. PYS Outdoor also offers a one-year warranty and a money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied with the product. They are also priced at the lower end compared to many competitors.

Pros:

  • Good price
  • Rated to hold 2,000 pounds
  • 16 or 20 loops per strap
  • one-year warranty and satisfaction guarantee

Cons:

  • Brand is not as established
  • No color options

2. Rallt No-Stretch Polyester Adjustable Suspension Hammock Straps

The Rallt hammock straps come in a pack of 2, with each strap measuring 10-feet long, for a total of 20 feet. Each strap has 18 carabiner loops, so 36 loops in total between the 2 straps. You can buy them with or without carabiners. The carabiners add a few dollars to the cost, but it’s a good buy if you don’t already have some strong carabiners.

Each strap is 3/4 of an inch wide, and they have a combined breaking strength of 2000 pounds. There are no knots to tie with these straps. Just wrap the strap around a tree and snap a carabiner into one of the loops.

These are very compact and lightweight straps, but still very strong, and non-stretch. They come with a carrying bag and can be rolled up and stored in a space just 4 inches by 4 inches by 1.5 inches.

Pros:

  • Rated for 2,000 pounds
  • Good price
  • Gives you the option of getting two carabiners (at an added cost of a few dollars)
  • Highly rated by customers

Cons:

1. MalloMe XL Hammock Straps

The XL straps from MalloMe are long and durable. The set comes with 2 straps that are each 12-feet long. Each strap has 20 loops, or 40 total between the 2 straps. This may be a deciding factor if you are trying to decide between brands, because the extra length can come in handy at times.

Each strap is 1-inch wide, and they combine to hold up to 2,000 pounds (1,000 pounds each). These straps are no-stretch, which is good for stability and strength. Each loop is triple stitched, so you can be confident that they will hold. The straps are made with polyester webbing that will help to keep it in place on the tree, or whatever else you are using for support.

The package comes with a carrying back and two locking carabiners, which is a nice addition. Like the others on this list, the straps are very easy to set up and take down, with no knots needed.

Pros:

  • Very long (12 feet)
  • Rated for up to 2,000 pounds
  • Highly rated by customers
  • 20 loops per strap
  • Comes with two locking carabiners

Cons:

How to Choose the Right Hammock Straps for You

We’ve looked at the top 5 hammock straps available. But now how do you know which one to buy? Take a look at the pros and cons of each option and decide which ones matches up to your needs the best. The price of the ENO Atlas straps is higher than all of the others, so if budget is a big concern that should narrow down your choices. On the other hand, ENO has the best brand recognition and has earned a lot of trust from buyers, so if that is important to you, you may want to consider their Atlas straps.

The options shown here come in basically two categories in terms of weight ratings. ENO and Wise Owl Outfitters are rated to hold 400 pounds. The others are rated around 2,000 pounds. In reality most people do not need anywhere close to 2,000 pounds of strength, so that may or may not be a deciding factor for you.

Length is a big factor. These options run anywhere from 9 feet to 13.5 feet per strap, and each comes with two straps. The extra length can come in handy in many situations, so we would encourage you to go with a longer option if possible, unless you know that you won’t need the extra length.

Do you already have strong carabiners? If not, you may want to purchase them with the straps as you can usually save a few dollars that way. If you already have them you may not want to pay for more of them.

In the end, for the typical hammock user, all five of these options are excellent choices. We’ve only covered the best options, so you’ll probably be more than happy with any of these. Simply pick the one that best suits your needs and budget.
