    Doublenest hammock from ENO
When I go for a hike, I consider my hammock ($69.95) to be as essential as water or trail mix. The hammock packs down into a compression sack, which makes it easy to store in a backpack. With ENO's Slap Strap system ($39.95), I can put the hammock up in a few minutes, and it provides a nice spot to sit and eat lunch or to take an extended rest and enjoy the scenery. Plus, it's light enough that if I don't use it on a hike, I don't feel inconvenienced by the extra weight. Be aware that some campsites do not allow hammocks to avoid damage to trees. Make sure to use responsibly. www.eaglesnestoutfittersinc.com
