Overall supreme features
Eno manufactures its hammock products differently and in unique way with many amazing features. Eno has also invented a tree friendly fabric known as Slapstrap, which can be hung to trees or other rigid objects within two minutes. So let us take a look on the key features of the hammocks produced by Eno;
Eno uses a high quality and very strong nylon as a material in manufacturing the hammock. The nylon is usually called parachute nylon and it is extremely thin, which also makes the Eno hammocks super-light.
The rope used by Eno is another factor that keeps the strength of the hammock, due to which the hammocks produced by Eno are capable to taking heavy loads.
Interlocking stitching and carabiner
The nylon is strong, but the way of stitching of the materials together makes the hammock stronger. The nylon material is stitched in a triple interlocking process which gives the hammock maximum strength and durability. The carabiner is also one important feature that increases the strength of the hammock produced by Eno.
