Sleep Straps are a great way to make hanging your Alton Goods Kerouac hammock easy and quick. For one... there's no tying ropes so you don't have to be an expert with knots, and they are much friendlier on trees than rope.
Sold as a pair, Sleep Straps can be attached to pretty much anything by just wrapping each strap around the object then feeding it back through the loop on the end of the strap. The straps are 2.7 meters long and have 16 loops giving you the option to hang from trees of all different shapes and sizes. Add a set of these to your gear list so you can go lighter and go further on your next adventure.
2 x 2.7m straps
180kg capacity (when used together)
Heavy duty stitched seams
Stuff sack included
This hammock system is so easy to set up & the straps are super long. No more fiddlin' arround with tricky suspension systems!
The straps are weighty but that is due to their sturdy and quality construction. There are plenty of uses for these other than the hammock as well.
I was initially a little sceptical about the practicality of the straps as I have used slings in the past and found decent cordage just as effective and lighter. However, these will remain in the kit now as they are of good quality and have enabled me to adjust the sleeping arrangements in a quick manner by giving just that extra length between trees. They also served as an effective dripline in a recent downpour.
Definitely super convenient and quick to set up the hammock with these guys!
Saves so much time when setting up with a hammock. Can bear fair amount of weight (180kgs I believe). Very durable and stitched well. Folds up neatly into bag size of closed fist.
Sleep straps, a time saver. They are a high quality and easy to use strap system - you don't need to bother with ropes or knots, just strap them on the tree and clip the hammock up. Easy in 30 seconds or less
