The popular hammock company answers the lifelong question of where to hammock when there are no trees with a triplet of hammock stands.
ASHEVILLE, NC , Oct. 23, 2015 – Having spent over a decade perfecting the perfect packable travel hammock, Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO) – the industry leader in hammocks and hammock accessories – is excited to announce their new line of hammock stands. Featuring a 3-hammock, 1-hammock and car stand, these portable structures open new doors (or back yards!) to the possibility of some good ol’ fashioned hanging out.
The largest of the stand family, the ENOpod™, holds three hammocks and up to 1200lbs, or 400lbs per hammock. Crafted from powder coated steel and featuring tool-less construction and only 12 pieces, its super-easy setup and breakdown make it the most accessible relaxation station out there. Plus, packing to a manageable size that fits in most car trunks, the ENOpod’s portability makes it easy to share the hammocking love.
Already established as a popular staple on ENO’s festival circuit, this is the first time the ENOpod will be available direct to consumer, and for national distribution.
“We’ve built such excitement with the ENOpods on our road program we can’t wait to finally say yes to those who have been looking to get their own stand for a while,” Amy Allison, Event Coordinator for ENO said. “I can’t wait to start seeing them pop up in people’s yards and local parks.”
Complementing the ENOpod, the SoloPod™ holds just one hammock – or 400lbs – but packs just as much relaxation power. Also built with durable powder coated steel and featuring quick-release, tool-less construction, the SoloPod breaks down conveniently into eight pieces, making it uber portable for any outdoors bash.
Last but not least, the Roadie™ screeches onto the scene as the industry’s first portable car hammock stand that does not require a hitch. Ensuring you always have a bed for the night, the Roadie’s simple setup stays secure under the wheels of your car, creating the perfect hang for any hammock. Crafted from snazzy powder-coated steel, the Roadie breaks down into 6 manageable pieces, taking up next to no space in your wagon, but offering unlimited hammocking moments wherever you stop.
“These products are more than just a hammock stand,” said Peter Pinholster, ENO’s Co-Owner and President. “They’re a spot for communication and hanging out. They really symbolize the vibe of getting out and hammocking.”
All three stands will be available for sale on enonation.com and in select ENO retailers in January 2016.
