I picked up an Eagle's Nest hammock at REI recently. I went with the ENO instead of a HH or other "jungle" hammock for versatility, mainly because I want a lounger in camp and not necessarily a sleeping hammock. I will be adding a Maccat tarp to the mix for sleeping out, though.
I'm still debating about the ENO Slap Straps or converting the hammock to a double-ring system. The stock system works well, though, so I'm going to take it out a few times before I start messing with stuff.
Bikenque, welcome to the hanging gang. We're glad to have you with us. I own 2 ENO setups, one single and one double, both of which are paired with the SlapStrap Pro. I'm happy with them, they're easy to use, cheap and durable. I bought my first hammock, an ENO SingleNest partially for teh same reson, to use as a lounger in camp, but quickly found that it slept oh-so-comfortably. I'm still very happy with my ENO's, but want to start making my own gear. Like I said, I'm not dissatisfied at all with my ENO's, I just want to try and create something for my own use that I made myself. If you're looking at the MacCat, you may want to consider BlackBishop's BlackCat, it seems to be a great design and will save ya a few buckaroos if you're so inclined as to try your hand at making you own goodies. Anyway, welcome aboard! Try and make the SEHHA Hangout in Hot Springs this weekend with us if you can!
