From suspended relaxation, to suspended storage, Eagles Nest Outfitters’ newest lifestyle bag takes hammock organization to the next level.
Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO), the leading provider of packable, camping hammocks, debuts their first lifestyle day pack: the Kanga. Larger than ENO’s other hammock storage solution, the Possum Pocket, the sleek construction, two-fold purpose and bright color palette of the Kanga is designed for more than just the great outdoors.
Joining a variety of other bags and cases, the Kanga is developed to serve the need of a multi-functional bag perfect for day-to-day activities as well as outdoor adventures. Where the Possum Pocket allows just enough space for a hammock and suspension system, the Kanga highlights a larger and more flexible design, with two exterior pockets, two interior pockets, and a zippered wallet stash.
“Our customers are looking for more from us,” said Peter Pinholster, ENO’s co-owner and president. “The Kanga is a way for us to be part of their everyday life, while still complimenting our hammock lines.”
Created from 200D Ripstop Nylon with a DWR and PU finish, the Kanga is durable for the active lifestyle of ENO’s market. Plus, fashioned with comfort in mind, the adjustable, padded shoulder strap and padded back panel rests easily on the user’s pressure points, making it a great choice for a wide variety of activities, college quad to a day hike on the trails.
When it’s time to stop moving and start hammocking, the Kanga can also be used as a suspended storage device with an added hanging loop and stowable strap. Clipping quickly to any hammock carabiner, the Kanga’s strap easily inserts into a spacious back cavity, creating a clutter-free storage option to keep your necessities off the floor and close to you.
“The Kanga takes all of the versatility of our Possum Pocket and puts it into a larger format for the person that just wants to take a little bit more with them or have a little bit more capacity in their hammock hanging storage,” said ENO Designer and Developer, James Frinak.
The Kanga measures 20” x 10” x 6” (L x W x D) and comes in three colors: Royal/Lime, Slate/Red, and Black. It is available at EaglesNestOutfittersinc.com or at one of their authorized ENO retailers.
