ENO DoubleNest Hammock

 

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....

Seven Hollows Trail, Petit Jean State Park, Morrilton, AR

Natural Bridge, Seven Hollows Trail, Petit Jean State Park, Arkansas Visited Petit Jean State Park last weekend, what an absolutely beautiful park...well-kept throughout, very friendly and helpful rangers....and the trails, wow! One could easily spend a week here and not have the time to take in all of the Ozark's finest splendor. Primitive camping is frowned upon here so I camped at site #98, a very wooded site that is very deep and secluded if you are a hammock camper as I. Water and Electricity are available at all camp sites at Petit Jean.  The first trail I'll review is Seven Hollows Trail. One must drive to it from the campgrounds and ample parking is provided. The trail is listed at 4.5 miles, but with side trips and spurs you'll easily get over 5 miles in. It's not an easy trail with many elevation climbs (my AllTrails recording showed 636 ft of Elevation Gain) and rocks, I'd say moderate rating. There are two points of interest that most people hike for, th

Lee Creek, Devil's Den State Park, Winslow, Arkansas

Lee Creek early in the Morning, Devil's Den State Park Devil's Den offers a number of trails, hike-in camping and great places to explore. For me, it's Lee Creek. If you are an amateur geologist there are amazing features. Like fossils? There are areas along the creek that are treasure droves for various fossil types. Caves? Yep. Plant life and wild flowers line the creek, and because of the rock formations causing all day shade in some spots while other areas may be in full sun there is quite a diversity. And regarding animals I've seen deer on every trip, and the creek holds a number of sunfish and bass, frogs, crayfish and of course the occasional snake.  Cave upstream on Lee Creek, strong spring runs from this cave To get to Lee Creek trail it's best to start in the Primitive or Hike-In Camping area at Devil's Den State Park. If you aren't staying overnight you can park at the trailhead that is located in the Primitive Camping (A) area. It's located

Tea Kettle Falls Trail, Huntsville, Arkansas

Looking Out From Tea Kettle Falls This trail east of Beaver Lake is a hidden gem....lightly hiked and beautiful views around each bend. There is a trail that runs along and near the creek, but most hikers, including myself, simply walk the wide creek bed. It's so wide that I ran into just a few spiderwebs early in the morning...it's just too wide for the spiders to go across with their webs!  The trail is part of the Madison Wildlife Management lands. There is a stone/dirt road that comes off Route 23, and you'll take that road about a mile to new parking. Any car can make it down this road, albeit it is a little rough at times. A slow go but you'll make it. The new parking is at the top of the hill, about 1/4 mi hike to the creek. You used to be able to drive down the hill, but too many people did so in cars that could not get back up the hill....so they created a parking area and blocked the road from vehicles.  Parking Area at Tea Falls Trail The walk to the creek is
