Hi Hammockforumites (or should i just call you hangers?)
I was wondering if there are canadian retailers for hammocks, looking specifically at ENO, and other things (i need some sort of bug netting, tarp etc)
if i can get really fussy, im in SW Ontario
No ENO hammocks but they do have Hennesy hammocks at Mountain Equipment Co-op. Their prices are about as good as you'll ever find for them anywhere else. You could do the amazon.com/ca route as I recall seeing ENO hammocks there in the past.
MEC carries Portec brand hammocks and bugnets last I checked. They are clones of ENO's. Outside of that you have order online or make it yourself.
I agree that the hammock retail scene in Canada is a little bare. You can buy directly from Hennessy and get the benefit of their full lineup. Hennessy is based in BC ( 1-(888) 539-2930 ). MEC, as Bubba pointed out, has a limited selection.
Ordering from US vendors can have its complications, but is often rewarding in terms of getting good gear. Buying from your fellow Canadian HF members is also an option, if someone happens to be selling. Watch the "For Sale" forum.
Thanks everyone. I'm going to look at the eno doublenest + screen + tarp vs hennessey for 140 cad......
More things to research
Where in SW Ontario are you from?
Seeing gear in real-life can really alter your attitude.
