As many of you ENOpians know, we rolled out the HouseFly earlier this year–adding it to the rain fly family. In addition to added privacy, the HouseFly’s silicone impregnated nylon sides keep you warm, dry and comfortable.
Happy Tu Bishvat to you all! In case you are unfamiliar, today is  also known as “Rosh HaShanah La’Ilanot” (Hebrew:: ??? ???? ????????), literally “New Year of the Trees.” As you ENOpians know, without trees, there would be no hammocks–or breathing. Traditions for Tu Bishvat in the past have included: giving plants and trees to one another as gifts, eating specific fruits, and drinking wine. Regardless of your brand of spirituality, consider taking today to thank trees in your own way. After all, trees are so good to us; giving us food, shade, life, and a place to hang our hammocks and relax.   1.) Plant a tree: What better way to show appreciation for trees than to add another one into the soil. And don’t over think it, you could totally do this today. Check out your local greenhouse or gardening store and pick a tree that fits your budget; then all you’ll need is a shovel, some water, and maybe a friend. If you’ve never planted a tree yourself before, know that it’s a great feeling to not only put it in the ground but to pass by it for years to come, watching it grow. 2.) Use...

  This will be the last homework free weekend for many college goers around the country. Holiday break is officially over and starting Monday, students everywhere will get a fresh start with a new semester. I’m sure you all totally got this and you’ll be returning to classes in style with your new kicks, ready to start essay assignments the day they are assigned. However I have a few pieces of unsolicited advice to share with you. Eye Contact This is a trick I personally developed, less like a trick more like good manners–but check it out. So at the end of class, like the last few minutes, when your professor is trying to squeeze the few details about the latest homework assignment in, just sit quietly, make eye contact, and listen. You will notice that you are one of the few people doing so. Most students during the last three minutes of class are packing their books, checking the time, and texting who they will meet after class. Your professor has a bird’s eye view from the front. If you’re patiently paying attention in a sea of shuffling millennials, you will be noticed as a stand up person. Visit...
  Now that the worst of the polar vortex has passed, I still find myself daydreaming of warmer days, live music, and jerry rolls. You guessed it, I’m day dreaming of music festivals. I know I’m not the only one longing for festival season to begin, to return to dancing, new friends, and having a close bond with music for an entire weekend. Well, it’s time to stop staring out icy windows and bumping up your thermostat. Let’s be pro-active about our currently long lost friend of the music festival and prepare for next year. So when your favorite festival announces their line up and your hard earned money hits the bank, you know that you’re more than ready with these necessities. 1.) ENO Hammock & Straps; Put Your Feet Up. It probably goes without saying that this is a necessity. Whether you camp in your hammock or have it strapped to your day bag to be ready for any-time naps and relaxation, it’s a necessity! Festivals are a marathon, not a sprint. You don’t want to be that kid who slept through all of Saturday night’s acts because they went too hard on Friday night. Take time throughout the...
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...
