Love to sway in the breeze while relaxing? Want a place to hang out without having to haul anything on wheels? Grab an ENO Eagles Nest Outfitters Hammockand start relaxing.

The entire hammock and all the straps fit into one small bag about five inches long and tall, smaller than half a gallon of milk. The clip located on top makes it easy to add the hammock onto any bag, and keeps it handy so you can set up quickly when you arrive at your destination. It works great for camping and fits easily into a suitcase for longer range travels.

You can set up this hammock anywhere you can find two supports.

The Eagles Nest Hammock comes in many different colors and two sizes. You can get a single hammock, with a weight limit of 400 pounds. If you want a little more fabric for stretching out, consider the double option, which holds the same amount of weight but provides about 18 extra inches of fabric width. The fabric resists ripping and tearing and dries quickly, so you can rest easy even fresh from a swim. If you’re not sure which size you want, I recommend the double. It adds minimal weight but extra options.

Combine the hammock with a tarp for extra shade and protection from the elements.

If you plan to overnight in the hammock, (I love sleeping in the trees, and the extra material can give you some protection from sun, rain, or light), it works great with a sleeping bag outdoors. Add a sleeping pad for extra comfort and you’ve got a compact and lightweight yet durable sleeping spot, with no worries about rocks, sticks, or even flat surfaces. For shorter daytime naps, you won’t need anything extra to feel comfortable.

Unlike the Mac Sports Portable Hammock, the Eagles Nest Hammock doesn’t come with a stand or optional shade. You will need to find something sturdy to hold it up. Luckily, the long straps give you lots of flexibility to find good options. Each strap goes around the object, like a tree or post, so it doesn’t matter how big the tree is. And you can easily add a tarp for your own shade. No matter your destination, the Eagles Nest Outfitters Hammock means you can relax when you get there.
