ENO DoubleNest Hammock, Red/Grey
I bought the ENO DoubleNest Hammock at Cabela's a few months ago and have used it quite a bit. I use this hammock for day trips and overnights.
First, I'm so glad I went with the DoubleNest. It's more comfortable if just hanging my legs over the side and leaning back than a single hammock. Additionally....when I lay on my side in this hammock (yes, you can do that comfortably in a double!) the sides fold over the top, nearly putting me in a comfy cocoon! I've thought to get a couple clamps to keep the flaps closed, keeps it so warm when doing overnights.
It's a very breathable material (Nylon Taffeta, whatever that is...) so you stay comfortable lying in it when it's warm, down to about 60 degrees at night. Below 60 I'd recommend a sleeping bag and/or under-quilt. It will handle 400 pounds and is 9 feet long, plenty of room. I suppose you could sleep two in it, but I've not tried, loner as I am. :) The hammock weighs 19 oz., not adding too much weight to my pack.
I use the ENO Atlas suspension system to hang my hammock, easy work of hanging and taking down. The hammock has an aluminum carabiner on each end that is very strong, no issues with bending when I've used the hammock. (I weigh in at 165 lbs.) I've never had any slippage and the hammock keeps it's shape throughout the day and night.
It fits into the attached bag that doubles as a light gear holder. I use it for my glasses and phone typically. It's an easy fit back into the bag, no issues or frustration. I usually leave one carabiner out for the starting point of hanging, but you don't need to. The bag comes with a buckle to keep it tight.
I'll be reviewing the under-quilt and tarp later, during the summer I haven't had the need to use either. I recommend this hammock strongly, enough to buy my hiking buddy one too. It's the Limited Edition Hammock Day 2020 print, also a DoubleNest. I expect to use the hammock in the Ozark Mountains all winter, I believe my equipment will keep me comfortable to about 20 degrees, about right for an Arkansas winter.
Oh, and it survived a bear bump while I was in it.... :) Until the next review....
