    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.
    I can't buy something without first considering whether I could just make it myself instead. How'd I get so screwed up?

    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.
    Don't let life get in the way of living.

    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.

    Where in SW Ontario are you from?
    Seeing gear in real-life can really alter your attitude.
    I ride a recumbent.
    I like to HAM it up on the CW.
    I use Linux.
    I play go.
    Of course I sleep in a hammock!

    Rug.

    Hang On!
