    New ENO Ember 2 opinion from a new hanger

    Hey All,

    I bought the ENO One Link system to give hammock camping a try. I've mostly been a summer car camper at my local state park. The main reason for my camping has been the opportunity to string my Byer Traveler hammock up for a few days of relaxation! I'm a hammock lover from way back so imagine my delight when I realized you could get a comfortable hammock set up to sleep in as well as relax in! I decided to go with an entry level set up as budget is a major consideration. I purchased the Ember 2 under quilt as I'm doing this on a string budget and this seems to fit with the type if camping I currently do. I keep a Vivere double Brazilian hammock on a stand in the house to hang in during the winter months. I decided to try the Ember on it to get an idea of what it's like. I am pleasantly surprised! It was very easy to attach, and fits this hammock fairly well (which is good because the double nest is a similar size). It's made an incredible difference in comfort! I keep the house around 65 degrees, and the hammock is close to a set of windows so it can get a bit chilly hanging in it. I may just sleep here tonight! I can't wait to get outside with the rest of the set up!
    It's my understanding that this quilt is pretty much summer weight no matter the advertising. I don't think I'd want it to be the only thing between me and New England spring temps! If you are really serious about your hang I'd research other options. For me this seems to be a great option for the type of hanging I'll be doing!
    Enjoy!

    Nothing wrong with ENO! They make great products and this setup sounds absolutely perfect. ENO is the gateway drug to hammock camping IMO. I have friends that started, and still use ENO. The Ember was a nice choice and you'll probably end up using it every time you go out, even in the summer Happy Camping!

    I too am a new eno hanger. I stayed out 2 weeks ago for my first trip and the temp got down to 0 and I was toasty warm. Looking forward to another trip in a week or so.

    Brought the Ember outside today for a test in my front yard. My bum is pretty toasty! It's about 46 degrees and sunny. Not bad!

    I bought an ENO Ember 2 and have been using it every night since mid-February (indoor hang, thermostat set to 60F overnight). Previously, I had been using a PLUQ, but could never get it to work well. I considered buying an AHE New River UQ, but after shipping costs, it was $75 more than the Ember 2.

    The Ember 2 was easy to hang and it fit my Grand Trunk Ultralight nicely (no more fussing with the underquilt during the night). A week ago, I 'retired' the GT UL hammock for an ENO DoubleNest and I haven't had any issues with the Ember 2 fitting the wider hammock. And I definitely like the wider width of the double - it's much more comfortable.

    I want an ember 2 because of the price and because i have an eno but can someone tell me how good the product is. I do not go on any major camping trips where the temperatutr ranges from -10 to 10 F. I need this for small overnight trips for temperatures like 25-60F.

    There are a few threads on this UQ. It can be difficult because people need varying levels of insulation at night depending on how they sleep but it appears to be a mid 40's quilt.
