Finding the right campsite for a car camping trip is not easy. Even in elbow-to-elbow packed campgrounds, a little room and some towering trees give you a slightly secluded feel. When the sun calls it a night and leaves you with a cool breeze, a crackling fire and a cooler full of brews cap off a day of "roughing" it.

Eagles Nest Outfitters enters the picture and can be the topper to your ideal campsite. The Eagles Nest Outfitters DoubleNest Hammock with Insect Shield can easily be slung between two trees, and let you snooze away a lazy summer day or rest after a day of outdoor adventures.

The DoubleNest is advertised to hold up to 400 pounds and boasts insect shield repellant technology. ENO states that the hammock will repel insects up to 6 months. It is constructed of a tough-as-nails breathable nylon.

The DoubleNest does not take long before you are lounging in it with a cool Corona. The hammock has a heavy duty carbineer on each end. A mounting strap wraps around a tree and attaches to each carabineer. The mounting straps are not included with the hammock and need to be purchased separately. The lengthy straps and over nine foot hammock allows you to mount the hammock between a pair of trees almost 30 feet apart.

In use, the insect shield noticeably works. On a hot and muggy early summer day, pesky insects kept far away from the DoubleNest. The hammock held up with close to 400 pounds piled in it. The nylon fabric also is comfortable and is not abrasive against your skin.

ENO LogoThe Eagles Nest Outfitters DoubleNest Hammock with Insect Shield makes for a comfy campsite companion and keeps nasty bugs far away. It lists for $84.95 and the mounting straps run from $20 to $25.
