    There are some threads in the archive about hanging two hammocks side-by-side from the same pair of trees, sharing a single tarp.
    This one: Spreader Bar for Two Hammocks
    And my favorite: Spreader Bars for Hanging Double
    Except for Cannibal & his lady, I think there are few couples that enjoy long periods of sleeping in a camping hammock together.

    DryFly- as per previous posters' recommendations: don't go there.
    ProFly- 10' length good, but the width seems that it would be too limiting unless you hang exclusively in good weather. Not enough options to give you good wind/weather coverage.

    Good luck!

    Agree with Shug. The 9x9 Noah has a diag of ~12.7'. More than enough length for a gathered end hammock, only requires 2 stakes and provides decent coverage. The fabric of the Noah series is tough polyester and barring major catastrophe will last. And they are relatively cheap.

    I have a 12x12 Noah. It's big. Use it as a camp kitchen while canoeing. You can configure the 12 with doors for a single hammock, but there are better options available for that IMO. If you are hanging 2 hammocks side by side, this would probably be better than the 9.

    Good luck with sleeping together in the ENO. Some can do it, my wife and I could not. Naps yes. Overnight, no. But then again, she doesn't like being single in the hammock either and we end up on the ground...so with a grain of salt...
