Designed to be used with Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO) hammocks (sold separately), the ultra-lightweight, fully adjustable ENO Helios Suspension System allows you to easily and safelyhang your hammock almost anywhere without any knot-tying ability.
Eagles Nest Outfitters has taken ultra lightweight hammock suspension to the next level with the Helios Suspension System. We will take a look at all the features here and what makes this so special.
First of all, it weighs in right at 5.7 ounces, which is very lightweight. These hammock straps pack down to be really small. So they include a small stuff sack to pack it down and throw inside your back pack. It makes it perfect for taking into the back country and it is going to support the weight of up to 150 pounds per strap. So that is 300 pounds for the whole hammock system.
They are using some really lightweight, but very durable and really good quality materials here. In the tree sling you have a one inch polyester webbing. That protects the tree from any damage. It is really easy to set up. All you have to do is sling it around the tree and attach it and pull it tight.
Down below the polyester webbing you have Dyneema cord. And while it looks really flimsy, this is a very strong, very reliable material. It is going to last a long time. And the way they have the adjustment here is really simple and very innovative. You have got a splice system where you are able to attach the carabineer for the hammock down here on the attachment point and then all you do is pull on the one side and that splice system will open up. It will let the other side of the cord pass through and then once you bear down on it, it makes it really tight. So this is such an easy adjustment. You just pull with one hand and you are able to adjust it up and down.
When you are ready to take this hammock system off of the tree or off of the fixed point, it is really simple. All you have to do is detach the carabineer. They have a really nice little directions here. It says: Connect hammock here. So you don’t have any questions on where you need to attach the hammock and what part you need to attach to the tree.
