This Just In

Recently, we made the most of mountain downtime with the ENO SingleNest Hammock. The sturdy nylon sling packs down to grapefruit shape, and the 17-ounce weight was an easy extra for car camping, day hikes, and overnight backpacking. Hang a daisy chain or ENO’s Slap Strap Pro (8 oz; $25) on a tree, then use metal clips to set up the hammock. The fabric stands up to errant tree branches and ENO rates it for 400-pound loads. Comfort level? We kept drifting off to dreamland. Use it for lunch breaks or basecamp luxury—it also shines hanging in the park or on a porch. $55; eaglesnestoutfittersinc.com

The Alite Monarch Chair weighs only 21 ounces thanks to its aluminum frame. Plus, it packs to the size of a large burrito and provides lightweight, comfortable seating in the backcountry. Color-coded poles cut assembly time to less than a minute. And ripstop nylon fabric is burly enough for loads up to 250 pounds. Trust in the engineering of this two-footed chair develops quickly and you’ll be rocking beside the fire in no time. $70; alitedesigns.com —Dave MacRunnel
