Industry Rocking Modifications Asheville, N.C., Oct. 15, 2012 – ENO, the leading producer of parachute hammocks, unveils modifications to the 2013 DoubleNest, SingleNest and DoubleDeluxe Hammocks, calling attention to detail that make the already easy to use outdoor accessories even more accommodating. Aluminum wiregate carabiners, updated buckles and new cord locks highlight the 2013 face lift for the hammocks. These minor trim updates may seem small, but together make for big, innovative differences. Doing away with the older, heavier, steel carabiners used on the pioneering models, ENO introduces superior aluminum wiregate biners. The sleek, new design – complete with the ENO logo – not only pleases the eye, but also shaves off major weight; they are only one-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 Brendan Garvey, head designer at ENO. “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.

Just over a week ago, a group of brave hikers set out to rescue an injured German Shepherd deserted by its owners on the top of Mt. Bierstadt, CO. The dog, Missy, was discovered by a couple who, after trying unsuccessfully to rescue her themselves, took pictures and posted them on a hiking Web site – 14ers.com – urging people to help. Immediately the climbing community sprang into action, gathering up an eight man search party to bring the dog down to safety. This all happened just over a week ago, so you may have already read the details. But, did you know a hammock was used in the rescue? Photo courtesy of Chris O’Riley. And this isn’t the first time we’ve heard this either! From using ENOs as a barrier to stop runaway golf carts, to using them as a blanket to protect from hypothermia, there appears to be many uses to this relaxing accessory! Do you have a story to tell? We’d love to hear it! Email them to mail@eaglesnestoutfittersinc.com, or post them on our Facebook! We may even feature it in our newsletter Keep staying relaxed and saving lives y’all!
