Hammocks have come a long way in recent years. Once a staple of beach houses and backyards, hammock camping has made its way into festivals and campsites due to increased comfort, easier setup and takedown, and an enjoyable time. ENO made its name as the definitive hammock maker early on and has branched out in recent years to include a stable of high-performance, lightweight year-round gear perfect for anyone on your gift list.
ENO and festivals go together like waterfalls and summer. The ENO DoubleNest LED Hammock boasts the same features as the original ENO DoubleNest ($69.95), but with a fun and festive integrated light string — with bright, dim, and strobe functions — to inject a good time into any hammock session. When the party’s over, just tuck the DoubleNest LED away in its stuff sack and you’re ready for your next adventure. Don’t forget the straps!
A plethora of pockets can accommodate all your hammock accessories when heading into the great outdoors. The main compartment is big enough to also fit your book and a few snacks, and a your water bottle in the side pocket. Padding on the back and strap make the ENO Kanga a comfortable companion on the trail or on the town, so pack it full of essentials for wherever daily Asheville adventures take you — from concerts to breweries and work to play.
This Bluetooth-enabled portable speaker not only weighs next to nothing and fits conveniently in any pocket, purse, or festival pack, but its hammock-specific design and built-in hanging hook angles the speaker for an optimized listening experience. Bright, colorful, and packing a huge audio punch for such a little package, the rechargeable ENO (ECHO) comes with an included micro USB cable and will inject energy into any situation.

The ENO Lounger DL is truly the king of comfort when it comes to camping chairs: padded arm rests, a pillow, two seating heights, and a cup holder. The feet offer a ton of floatation, so this chair works great in soft muddy or sandy conditions. This is the chair that your friends will be vying to steal from you around the campfire.

It’s the Cape Canaveral of pickup Frisbee games and the mission control of set-break hoagies; the ENO LaunchPad is the ultimate luxury in picnic and outdoor concert gear. The LaunchPad is topped with a layer of cushy fleece to keep you warm, but armored with a coated, ripstop nylon underneath to keep you dry. When the show’s over, just zip it up and sling it over your shoulder.
Make your campsite glow with the ENO Twilights LED Camp String Lights. This string of 23 ultrabright LEDs illuminates a large area and features four different lighting modes for versatility. The lights can run for up to 72 hours on 3 AAA batteries and keep the party going long after the fire has gone out.
