We’ve recently purchased and reviewed the ENO DoubleNest Hammock. This hammock is a compactable, camping hammock, made for one or two people. It is durable, lightweight, and perfect for hiking, camping, and on-the-go outdoor adventuring.
From a small startup started by two brothers in Florida, to now the large Eagle’s Nest Outfitters, Inc company based out of North Carolina promises to give you all of the comfort and quality the outdoors can deliver.
A good hammock such as this one can help improve the quality of sleep you get during any outdoor camping trip or overnight stay. Studies have shown that sleeping in a hammock versus sleeping in a camping bag on the hard ground can help with back pain issues as well as keep you drier throughout the night.
