For many years now I had been looking for a compact, lightweight hammock that could be used for camping and backpacking. Just recently one of my friends and Mike’s Road Trip followers sent me a link to the perfect product to try…the ENO (Eagles Nest Outfitters) Hammock system. When I checked out the ENO site, I was extremely excited…their products were exactly what I’d been looking for.
I received my ENO Hammock system a couple weeks ago, which came complete with a mosquito net and rain fly. My first adventure with the ENO Hammock was on my Mount Rainier trek, however since we camped above the treeline I was unable to use it to sleep in—it still got used while doing some relaxing down below as you can see from the pic to the left.
Just the other day I was camping in the Olympic Peninsula area and got the opportunity to sleep in my new hammock for the first time…what an experience! The ENO Hammock takes but a couple minutes to hang (a bit longer to set up the mosquito net and rain fly, however both come with easy to follow instructions).
The folks at Eagles Nest Outfitters have thought of everything. For example, each peripheral product has its own attached stuff stack; the mosquito netting fits over the hammock without being cumbersome, while allowing for easy access…yet still keeping the bugs out. Needless to say, I’m really impressed with ENO and can’t wait to try out some of their other products.
