Just in time for the new years, we would like to reintroduce you to a fresh version of an old favorite – the DoubleNest, SingleNest and DoubleDeluxe Hammocks. Aluminum wiregate carabiners, updated buckles and new cord locks highlight the 2013 facelift for the hammocks. These minor trim updates appear small, but together make for big, innovative differences. Doing away with the older, heavier steel carabiners used on the pioneering models, we have introduced superior aluminum wiregate biners. The sleek, new design – complete with our logo – not only pleases the eye, but also shaves off major weight; they are only a quarter of the weight of their predecessor. In addition, the wiregate opening is free of sharp edges, reducing the chances of material damage. “We wanted to update the biners to make the hammocks lighter and deliver the highest quality product possible,” said ENO Designer, Brendan Garvey. “We developed this biner specifically for us and our customers.” The updated hammocks also feature a redesigned buckle and cord lock, both parts of the opening mechanism. The new buckle, made from acetol, is stronger and sturdier, lessening the frustrating possibility of an accidental release. The cord lock redesign features no moving...
ENO breaks onto the festival scene with innovative festival entertainment. ASHEVILLE, N.C., Nov. 30,2012 – The creative minds from Eagles Nest Outfitters, industry leading hammock designers, launch the newest piece of festival entertainment – the Lotus Lounge. The Lotus Lounge, modeled after the iconic Lotus flower, is a breathtaking, silver, circular sculpture aimed at the festival scene. ENO has been present on the festival circuit for over ten years, but the Lounge is their debut into the entertainment market. “It’s a mobile concept offering something for people at different functions to be involved with the lifestyle and not just buying a hammock,” said Pete Pinholster, co-owner and president of ENO and the brains behind the cutting-edge structure. Focused on being an area of relaxation, the curved design mimics the shape of a hammock, and the framework is able to hang a combination of ENO Hammocks and Loungers, with the possibility to add a large tent, a 5000 watt sound system and a professional lighting. The center of the Lounge is outfitted with a unique and innovative DJ booth. Aside from the hammock-hanging-stations in the Lounge, the package includes up to 25 three-way hammock stands named Enopods, patent pending. The Enopod...

Never wake up with your butt on the ground again Asheville, NC – Oct. 1, 2012 – Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO), the original parachute hammock creator, unveils the Atlas*, the newest member of their Hammock Suspension System family and the first strap to be crafted from a tailor-made, non-stretch PolyFilament webbing. An update from the pioneering Slap Strap and Pro Strap, the Atlas boasts industry leading versatility and strength. “Stretching seemed to be one of the biggest problems with other hammock suspension systems, so we developed the Atlas to solve that problem,” said Peter Pinholster, co-owner and president of ENO. “The response, thus far, has been tremendous.” ENO took a new approach creating the Atlas, developing a custom webbing dovetailed to minimize stretching and maximize durability and safety. The strap also differs from its siblings in aesthetics – 30 combined adjustment points are arranged daisy chain style with central orange accent threads. Overall, the updated design and fresh construction technique gives the Atlas a tremendous tensile strength and improved usability that is unmatched by any other hammock suspension product on the market. “We constantly want to update and improve our product arsenal, and the creation of the recently patented Atlas was...

Did anyone see that football game yesterday? You know, the Super Bowl? Well, aside from the exciting play, there was an arguably even more exciting half-time show featuring Madonna, LMFAO and a guy named Andy Lewis. Never heard of him? He was the guy bouncing around on the tight-rope looking thing! Impressive, huh?! Although his slick jumps and breathtaking flips looked more cirque du soleil that sports, what he was actually doing is called Slacklining…and he happens to be very good at it! Slacklining is a popular sport in outdoor communities, such as Boulder, CO, that originates from climbing camps in Yosemite during the mid-seventies. It involves strapping a piece of narrow, flexible webbing low to the ground between two anchor points. Once you’re set up, you can do anything from crawl across it, to, as Andy Lewis very skillfully pointed out, jump and twist and flip! Check out this video from the Super Bowl of Lewis in action…     Although the slackline used by Lewis in the Super Bowl half time show was made by Gibbon, ENO also has been selling them for years! This sport is hitting the mainstream, and thanks to Madonna and her toga-clad slack lining superstar, it’s going to...
