Whether it’s just one night or ten in a row, nothing sleeps better aloft than the infamous Portaledge. Built of super-duty fabric and aircraft-quality aluminum, this sleeping platform is as lightweight as it is durable—an important combination among its ounce-counting followers. Build it in the crown or on the ground, it makes no difference. It’s quick and safe to assemble because all parts are tethered together in the Durathane haul sack. For those who can afford it, there simply is a no more restful platform than the Portaledge. Unlike hammocks that need to be suspended from a minimum of two (but, more often, four) attachment points, the Portaledge needs only one. Want the feeling of floating under the stars? Got it. Want a bed affixed like a shelf on the tree? Check. Want to enjoy a meal sitting two abreast? No problem. Want the ability to level your bed post-attachment? Double check. Want any of that out of a hammock? Sorry. Ask any tree climber who’s slept aloft for the inevitable recommendation—nothing beats a Ledge!
