It's about to be Cub Scout time again - so I'm checking out the camping gear, of course. (I mean if I have to do this for the next 10 years, I may as well do it with some degree of panache, right?)
On my wish list: Eagle Nest Outfitters SingleNest Hammock.
It weighs just 18 oz. and packs down to the size of a grapefruit. Made of super-soft, breathable woven nylon, it's comfortable - and (more importantly for me) easy to pitch.
