The Nomad is the 4th offering in the growing line of hammock stands designed by ENO.  The portable, lightweight Nomad Hammock Stand is constructed of aluminum alloy and weighs only 15 lbs.
Asheville, NC, July 28, 2016 – Eagles Nest Outfitters, creators of packable camping hammocks and fun outdoor accessories, continues to broaden their offerings with a full line of new products presented at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Show. While hammocks and suspension straps are ENO’s go-to products, the team mindfully enhances and expands their product line while staying on top of the hammock game.  “One of our must exciting new products is the Nomad Hammock Stand,” said Lane Nakaji, General Manager. “Its lightweight aluminum design is streamlined and easy to assemble, and makes hammocking an option in locations lacking trees for suspension.  Our goal is to take all of the challenges out of hammocking, making it simple and relaxing no matter where you are, or who you are.” Another addition to the lightweight line is the Helios XL Suspension System.  The Helios XL is designed using Dyneema with a bury splice adjustment system.  It has all of the light and strong aspects of the original Helios Suspension System, but has an addition 5 feet for a total of 13 feet of usable feet.  ENO will also be adding a third chair to their product line.  While the first two chairs offer...
Here at ENO, there is only one thing more important to us than hammocking: responsible hammocking.  We’ve taught you how to hammock responsibly out in nature, and now it’s time to address a place where hammocks come together for a weekend-long party: music festivals. Some points to remember when hammocking at a festival are:   Don’t leave your hammock up and alone. If you’re using your hammock, great!  But once you’re done relaxing in it, make sure to take it down quickly.  With the attached stuff sack, putting your hammock away is quick and easy, plus you can easily take it wherever you go.  You wouldn’t want a stray festival-goer to be walking through the trees and crash into your hammock! Additionally, hammock thieves do exist, and leaving an unattended hammock hanging may result in having no hammock.  And no hammocks make us very sad.   Take care of the area around you You may need a lot of stuff (i.e. food, clothes, wallet, WATER, and much more) but that doesn’t mean you have to leave a lot of stuff.  Take care to pick up any trash you may accumulate or see and encourage others to do the same.  ...
Note from ENO: As a co-sponsor, we will be following Trevor’s adventure on the Alabama Scenic River Trail over the next few months. This is the ninth chapter of his story. People of the River Along the trail I met ENO hangers, Old Town paddlers, river angels, and river strangers. I met a tourist in Fairhope, Alabama who paddles the same canoe as me when he goes on extended canoe trips back home in the South of France! When I explain to people what I am doing they either think I am crazy or think I am “living the dream.” No matter what people’s opinion of my mental health status was, they offered a helping hand. Sometimes I was offered a cold drink, sometimes a ride or sometimes something as simple and delicious as a fresh tomato from their garden, a gift that makes all the difference while camping on the river. Like John Fogerty said in his song, “Proud Mary,” “people on the river are happy to give.” Another thing people had to share was their story. My favorite part of meeting new people is hearing their stories and gleaning insight and wisdom from their life experiences. Sometimes the...
Note from ENO: As a co-sponsor, we will be following Trevor’s adventure on the Alabama Scenic River Trail over the next few months. This is the eighth chapter of his story.   Wildlife on the Alabama River As soon as the Coosa River ended I was on the lookout for alligators. On the upper Alabama River I saw tens of thousands of hatched eggs spilling out of sand burrows with little clawed slide marks going towards the water. “My God!” I thought. There must be alligators everywhere! I later witnessed that these were just turtle nests. It’s funny how you can build up a danger in your mind and become hyper-alert to it. I did see some large alligator slides along the upper Alabama River though. On the middle section of the Alabama River, the Spoonbill Catfish (Polyodon spathula) are jumping at an amazing rate! Every 30 seconds or so one would jump out of the water. I kept waiting for one to jump into my boat, but it never happened. I was never fishing specifically for them, but was surprised that I didn’t accidentally hook one. Apparently people do fish for them, but not for their meat. Somebody told...
During a recent outing with friends to go fishing on a local island, I discovered that hammocks are truly the best item you can have for camping. Beating out tents and chairs, hammocks are king when it comes to camping in total comfort. After discussing with other camping enthusiasts, here are the reasons why:   The Level of Comfort Hammocks offer a unique way to sleep. Unlike tents, you’re not stuck laying on the ground, and you can sleep comfortably off of the cold hard ground that will leave you waking up with a sore back. So while your friends are asleep on the ground, you can sleep in your hammock and know you’ll wake up refreshed.   Ease of Transport Hammocks are light, with ENO’s DoubleNest weighing only 19oz! You can hike further, longer, and never get tired carrying this awesome item! It wont wear you down on your camping trip and is great for when you already have way too much gear with you, especially if you’re an overpacker like me.   Only Bring What You Need Hammocks are very customizable. If you are going for an overnight camp on a night when you know there wont be...
Note from ENO: As a co-sponsor, we will be following Trevor’s adventure on the Alabama Scenic River Trail over the next few months. This is the seventh chapter of his story.   The End of the Coosa Well, I’ve made it to the Alabama River!  Coosa Outdoors outfitter and trail angel Lonnie Carden picked me up at Jordan Dam and drove me and my gear to his river property, The Dirt Farm.  He set me up with a covered area to hang my hammock and it even had electricity and fans!  There was clean water nearby too – high living, compared to how I’ve been camping. A group of friends came down to camp and paddle with me.  Lonnie dropped us off at the base of the dam so we could paddle the rapids at the end of the Coosa.  I made it down Moccasin Gap, a class III rapid, fine, but I flipped on one of the smaller rapids.  My “waterproof” phone, which was supposed to be able to submerge for 30 minutes, got wet and died.  I have insurance so I got a replacement, but I lost all my pictures.  Sadly, I had been relying heavily on cataloging...
For backpackers, travelers, and outdoor enthusiasts, packing light can be a challenge when you are traveling away from hostels and hotels for days at a time, or even just for quick overnight hikes with family and friends. Packing light puts less strain on your body and allows you to enjoy the time in the outdoors. A hammock provides a packing solution that is smaller than a tent and allows you to not only pack lighter, but sleep comfortably off of the hard ground so there is no need for any extra material. Here are my top three reasons to own a hammock:   1. Ease of Use: Hammocks are simple to setup and take only minutes to pack and unpack while you are on the go. These simple designs are fool proof and will have your home for the night hanging from the trees in no time. Now you can sit around the fire longer, and enjoy your time outdoors, and be thankful that there’s no more fumbling with rods for your tent.   2. Weight and Size: Hammocks are incredibly light. ENO’s DoubleNest weighs in at only 19oz, or just over one pound. The Atlas Straps used to suspend the hammock, my...
