A place to roost on the road
Eagles Nest Outfitters’ travel-size hammocks offer you comfort whether you want to sleep under the stars or swing in the breeze at your favorite summer spot. They’re made of strong, breathable nylon and come with built-in stuff sacks.
The one-person SingleNest hammock packs down to softball size, while the DoubleNest measures about the size of a melon. Both hold up to 400 pounds. They sell for $54.95 and $64.95 at REI (800-426-4840, www.rei.com) or go to www.ea glesnestoutfittersinc.com. You can accessorize your hammock with the ENO Guardian Bug Net ($54.95), ENO DryFly Rainfly ($79.95), or patented ENO SlapStraps ($22), which make it a cinch to suspend your hammock from trees, boat masts, rafters, and other posts.
