I recently moved from a spacious one-bedroom to a “cozy” two-bedroom with my friend. The original plan was to get rid of my bed and sleep in a hammock, but the hammock that I purchased (below) is more “sitting outside for an hour” than “getting a full night’s sleep” comfortable.
How fortunate that last weekend at Forecastle Festival the guys from Eagles Nest Outfitters Inc (ENO) gave me the opportunity to test their wares, which in this case are extremely comfortable hammocks.
The hammocks, available in “SingleNest” ($55), “DoubleNest” ($65), and the lighter “ProNest” ($65) varieties, cradle the body without creating pressure points. They are made from breathable nylon, can hold up to 400 lbs, stuff down to very tiny and come in a billion colors (or 13, whichever is lower). Check out the ENO photo gallery for some truly breathtaking shots of where people are taking their ENO naps.
Discovering ENO this week has an added bonus: the good folks over at Branch Whipped are giving away a DoubleNest hammock to one lucky contest entrant. Just for doing things you should probably already want to (“like” ENO on facebook, follow them on Twitter), you have an opportunity to win a hammock built for two. The deadline for entering is July 24. Good luck!
