Asheville, NC – Oct. 1, 2012 - Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO), the original parachute hammock creator, unveils the Atlas*, the newest member of their Hammock Suspension System family and the first strap to be crafted from a tailor-made, non-stretch PolyFilament webbing. An update from the pioneering Slap Strap and Pro Strap, the Atlas boasts industry leading versatility and strength.
“Stretching seemed to be one of the biggest problems with other hammock suspension systems, so we developed the Atlas to solve that problem,” said Peter Pinholster, co-owner and president of ENO. “The response, thus far, has been tremendous.”
ENO took a new approach creating the Atlas, developing a custom webbing dovetailed to minimize stretching and maximize durability and safety. The strap also differs from its siblings in aesthetics – 30 combined adjustment points are arranged daisy chain style with central orange accent threads.
Overall, the updated design and fresh construction technique gives the Atlas a tremendous tensile strength and improved usability that is unmatched by any other hammock suspension product on the market.
“We constantly want to update and improve our product arsenal, and the creation of the recently patented Atlas was simply the next step in our evolution”, says Pinholster. “They were a massive hit at this year’s Outdoor Retailer show and we are all very excited to see where they go next.”
