Featured in The Wall Street Journal’s “A Bite-Free Summer – Defend yourself from insects with gear that tells them to, ahem, bug off.” “Insect Shield Clothing” The second layer of defense is Insect Shield, a licensed technology used by more than 30 brands of clothing. It infuses the material with permethrin, a chemical that has DEET-like bug-repellent qualities, but is mild enough to be rated safe for pregnant women and infants. While you can spray permethrin on your own clothes, the results can be tacky and smelly, and any effect is gone after a few washes. Insect Shield typically lasts for 70 washes, and shows up in tons of iterations, from simple T-shirts to battle-ready button-downs and khakis ($35 to $99, exofficio.com). My personal favorites are the socks ($18, exofficio.com) and, for my daughter, toddler-size leg-warmers ($15, babylegs.com), both of which are perfect for repelling up-crawling ticks (in Insect Shield’s tests, they drop off on contact with the fabric). There are pajamas for the ultimate evening protection ($60 to $80, cocoonusa.com). And the Insect Shield-ed two-person hammock ($85, eaglesnestoutfittersinc.com) is unnecessary, but ingenious.”

Featured in Wired.com’s “Take Your Party to the Park,” reviewed by Billy Brown.   ENO DoubleNest Hammock Whether you’re sick of sleeping on the cold, hard ground every time you go backpacking or you just want a better place to relax in your garage, this hammock is one sweet chariot. As the name suggests, the DoubleNest is built for two. At 6’8? wide by 9’10? long, there’s plenty of room for two or three people — up to 400 pounds total. But the real coup here is portability. The nylon nest packs down into a softball-sized package weighing less than two pounds. Stuffing it into a carry-on for your next island getaway is a no-brainer. Setup takes about two minutes with ENO’s Slap Straps ($20, sold separately). Find two anchor points (aka trees, or the steel columns over by the copier) and loop the straps around them. Then, clip the DoubleNest’s carabiners to the straps and commence napping. WIRED Far more comfortable than sleeping on rocks. Simple setup. Lightweight, takes up almost no space in a pack. TIRED Useless when there aren’t any anchor points around. Nylon isn’t comfortable against bare, sweaty skin when it’s hot out. $65, Eagles Nest Outfitters“
Linking CommunitiesHola ENOpians! It’s no secret our hammocks have journeyed all over the world and provided comfort and relaxation to their fellow travelers. But recently we heard our ENO hammocks provided more than just a sweet place to slumber: they helped link two very different communities. Ian Palmer, an ENO lover from Atlanta, went on a two week trip to Tanzania with Young Life. During this time, they stayed briefly in a remote village that, according to Ian, had no previous interaction with American people or culture. Although they were from very different places, believed very different things, and spoke very different languages, they found common ground in an ENO hammock. This is his story… “We were greeted with a certain amount of initial shyness, but more so with kindness and openness, especially from the kids. Almost immediately after stringing up my ENO, this elder approached my foreign device with curiosity. He was particularly fascinated by the design of the slapstraps and the material of the hammock itself. It took a few minutes of convincing, and several demonstrations of the hammock’s safety, but eventually he conceded to hop in with me. Once he got settled, he really seemed to be enjoying...
