I’ve personally enjoyed the art of relaxing for pretty much all my life and discovered that one of best ways to fully appreciate this great pastime is with the help of a hammock. There is nothing like relaxing to the sounds of nature while enjoying the cool breeze in the great outdoors.

I particularly enjoy using hammocks like the one’s we carry by Eagles Nest Outfitters aka “ENO”. The main reason is that they are extremely compact and can be taken just about anywhere. With their packed size being smaller than that of a football, it makes it extremely easy to keep the hammock in your car, backpack, kayak/canoe, office, home…you get the point. As you can see in the photograph, I really do enjoy the portability of hammocks. Yep, that’s me taking it easy on my lunch break just outside our office.

Hammocks are great for camping, festivals, sporting events, fishing, hiking, biking and any other outdoor activity where you may need a quick rest or a good night’s sleep. In addition to their portability, they take less than 30 seconds to set up and put away. All you need to do is find a couple trees (or similar setup) that are about 10-15 feet apart, set the Slap Straps by looping them around the trunks. Once you’ve done this, simply take the carabiner end of the hammock and attach it to one of the six points on each Slap Strap — easy. After that, get in and good luck fighting consciousness as you’ll undoubtedly slip off into a warm dreamland filled with gumdrops and lollipops.

Protect yourself from the elements.

If you want to take your relaxation to a whole other dimension, check out the Kelty Camp and Luxury Camp Pillows. Their portability also provides a convenient anywhere/anytime use pillow. Whether you are traveling, camping or everything in between, Kelty Camp Pillows are the essence of convenient comfort. Couple these with the Single or Double Nest ENO hammocks and you’ve got yourself a  match made in heaven.

Share it with your dog!

Lastly, don’t let inclement weather deter you from breaking out the hammock and getting a snooze in. Consider an ENO Fast Fly Rain Tarp. This product compliments all ENO hammocks and can also be used independently to shade and protect you and your gear.
