Their experience and knowledge has resulted them creating a wide variety of hammocks with different sizes, styles, and colours. From backyard to backwoods, from forest to festival, from camping to campus, with ENO you can relax.
Brothers Peter and Paul Pinholster setup ENO in the summer of 1999. They wanted to escape the traditional workplace and develop the best hammocks. The brothers dedicated their days and nights to making and selling the most comfortable hammocks in the world. From a small operation in Florida to travelling the East Coast they sold hammocks at music festival and community gatherings. In a short time they developed their passion for hammocks and committed to creating and selling the most comfortable hammocks in the world.
ENO is now recognised as the industry's leading provider of ingeniously crafted parachute hammocks. ENO continues to grow and thrive in Asheville, NC designing innovative products. They now also invest in a number of local and global communities, supporting organisations working to preserve and protect public lands. ENO products are sold in over 2000 retail locations in 13 countries.
Sawyer Permethrin is a safe and odourless insect repellent suitable to use on fabrics. It is very effective as it not only repels insects but also kills many of them. The pharmaceutical grade has a significant advantage over the naturally occurring compound. It is less affected by sunlight and lasts up to 6 weeks or 6 washings on clothing and other fabrics. Protecting a hammock with Permethrin insect repellent is another great innovation by ENO. It provides excellent defence against mosquitoes, ticks and more than 55 other kinds of insects.
- Insect Shield Treatment - Insect Shield treatment repels insects through 6 months of exposure to the elements.
- High quality material - Made of high-strength, breathable woven nylon with triple interlocking stitching, very reliable and durable.

- Easy to setup with ENO straps - Forget setting up complicated slings with sliding loops and other silly stuff, check out the ENO Eagles Nest Outfitters - Atlas Hammock Suspension System (FFP)
- Supports a number of conservation projects - ENO believes in making the world a better place and support and partners with many organisations.
- Straps not included - Straps are sold separately for all ENO hammocks.
- Not ideal for sleeping two adults - The hammock does have enough capacity for two people but it doesn't sleep two adults comfortably.
The DoubleNest is the bread and butter of Eagles Nest Outfitters camping hammocks. But rather than resting on their achievements, the company is always looking for ways to develop and improve the product. The addition of the Insect Shield treatment means that your hammock will repel most insects through 6 months of exposure to the elements.
It still has all the features that have made the DoubleNest one of the best selling hammocks. It is constructed from a single layer of high quality breathable, quick-drying nylon. The material is thin but strong and provides a comfortable sleep for anyone. The compression sack is very effective allowing you to compress the whole hammock (including suspension carabiners) down to a ball that fits in one hand.
When paired with a rain fly (sold separately), hammock can serve as a shelter for long-distance hikers tackling wooded routes such as the Appalachian Trail. And remember, It’s Not A Hammock, It’s An ENO!
