Asheville, N.C. — Today, Eagles Nest Outfitters, Inc. (ENO), the leader in packable hammocks and outdoor relaxation gear, is pleased to announce that its reimagined DoubleNest Hammock has received an REI Co-op Editors’ Choice Award. This accolade comes a few months after ENO relaunched its iconic DoubleNest Hammock in January of 2022 with bluesign® approved fabric, thoughtfully updated features, and a refreshed color palette.
The REI Co-op Editors’ Choice Awards were developed in 2020 by REI’s in-house editorial team as a way to honor the top-performing products based on rigorous field tests conducted by REI staff and member-testers, sustainability attributes, and co-op member and customer feedback. The highest-scoring products are featured in Gear Guides found on Expert Advice and Uncommon Path, and the best of the best receive an REI Co-op Editors’ Choice Award. The full collection of REI Co-op Editors’ Choice Award winners can be found at REI.com/editors-choice.
“In our field test, our testers believed there was no better hammock for a wide range of activities,” noted REI Co-op editors. “Its roominess and comfiness are spectacular, and we’re happy to recommend the hammock to anyone in the market.”
The reimagined ENO DoubleNest Hammock series underwent a meticulous development process that included retooling our supply chain, thoughtfully updating product construction, and fine-tuning our point-of-purchase strategy. “We’re elated to hear that our focus on design, responsibly made materials, and customer experience has been rewarded with this honor, and that the DoubleNest maintains its status as the industry-leading adventure-ready hammock,” said ENO’s Chief Product Officer, Ryan Klinger.
The reimagined DoubleNest Hammock builds upon the success of its predecessor, maintaining its portability, packability, ease of use, and original features while also incorporating:
- FreeWave® nylon solid color fabric that is supremely comfortable, breathable, fast-drying, and certified as 100% bluesign® approved
- An exclusive crinkle treatment providing exceptional softness and packability
- An extended 9.5-foot (2.9-meter) hammock body allowing extra room to stretch out, lay flat, and relax
- A bonus internal stash pocket, housed in the stuff sack, to organize essentials
- Specially designed (patent-pending) hammock-specific carabiners that easily attach to all ENO hammock straps or other secure anchor points, and help maintain correct orientation for a safer, easier hang
- Refreshed hardware including a custom side-release buckle and larger, sturdier cord lock making for quick setup and pack up every time
Weighing the same as its predecessor, the 19-ounce (538-gram) DoubleNest Hammock ($74.95), DoubleNest Print Hammock and DoubleNest Giving Back Hammocks ($84.95) can support up to 400 pounds. Each remains compatible with all ENO hammock straps, stands, bug nets, rain tarps, and insulation systems to continue to enable hammock enthusiasts to build their own hammock system tailored to any pursuit. The DoubleNest Hammocks can be found online and at specialty outdoor retailers across the country.
