The Eagles Nest Outfitters HotSpot offers hammock campers a way to secure a sleeping pad inside their ENO hammocks (sold separately). Weighing just 9 ounces, the HotSpot allows you to extend your hammock camping into cooler weather.
We are taking a look at the Eagles Nest Outfitter Hot Spot Hammock Accessory. This is a little bit of extra insulation that you can add to your sleeping pad while you are hammock camping to extend that camping into three or four seasons.
A regular sleeping pad is meant to insulate just from the bottom. When you are in a hammock you do need insulation that comes up around you, because of the shape of the hammock. And so that this what the Hot Spot does. It gives you some extra insulation around your shoulders, around your hips where the hammock will come up around you and keeps you warmer in those chilly temperatures.
So it is going to fit any sleeping pad that is 20 inches wide. It does have a little bit of stretch with the straps that are on the bottom of it, but it is going to fit best with a 20 inch wide sleeping pad and it is going to fit in virtually any Eagles Nest Outfitters Hammock or any hammock in general.
The real stand out feature here is these wings on the sides. So if we take a look at that, got my sleeping pad here. That is green. And then the hot spot is this grey area right there. It slides right over top of your sleeping pad and on the underneath side it has got three little straps. So if I show them, it has got a strap here, one on the bottom and one on the top. So that slides right over your sleeping pad, fits in your hammock really nicely and not only does it insulate you a little bit better from cold air, but it helps your sleeping pad to stay centered in your hammock. So it has got a couple of different uses. It doesn't weight very much. It weighs in right around nine ounces, so that weight is going to go a long way to keep you warmer when you are hammock camping. And it folds down pretty small. So it is six millimeter EVA foam. So it is pretty packable. Ands the dimensions here, it is about 36 inches long and 35 inches wide. So you have got a nice packable solution that is going to extend your hammock camping into three or four seasons.
It is the Eagles Nest Outfitters Hot Spot.
