Company: Eagle Nest Outfitters. Available in Australia from Rays
TPL Rating: 5 /5
Ok, so I never thought that I could be in love with a piece of outdoor equipment, but I might actually be in love with these hammocks – seriously. I have one that permanently lives in our car, ready to be used whenever moment the calls for lazing between two trees to sway in the cool breeze and savour the great out doors (which happens quite regularly). This is also the one piece of kit that when we set it up using the tree friendly Atlas Straps (sold separately) we get asked about ALL THE TIME. The makers of these hammocks also make additional dry fly rain tarps and mosquito nets, meaning that if the inclination takes you, and you can find two appropriately spaced trees, you could even camp out in these babies and trust me I’ve thought about it.
They are rated 180kg weight capacity and can quite comfortably fit two people, especially if you use it as a camp lounge and sit across it with your feet swinging off the side. They come with a handy little stuff bag with a click close strap and pack down small enough to fit in the glove box (or handbag – yes I tried).
