    I Love my Singlenest so far, and recently got a doublenest deluxe, which I am taking out car camping (the only type of camping I do, so weight not a factor) later this month. Atlas Straps work for me so far and Profly rain fly hasn't yet let me down. I have added a structural ridgeline and am thinking about a better bugnet, but so far, for the money, I like what I have. Full disclosure, I did get my ENO Onelink setup and the recently acquired doubelnest deluxe off craigslist for half price as new, and don't think I would have paid full price for the whole setup myself.

    I have three hammocks, three different manufacturers, one being ENO. I don't even consider taking my ENO DN backpacking with me.

    ENO makes a good lounging hammock. Most people started with an ENO or something similar. A lot of people move on from ENO though. They're very short hammocks and heavy for their price point. I have a couple collecting dust somewhere in the historical boxes. ENO makes a great gateway drug.

    I had an ENO DBL but "donated" it to a family member. Nothing really wrong with it as I also set up a base camp (think car camping) then do day hikes. Only reason I donated it was because I was gifted a HH with bottom entry which works better for me and my disability. I also purchased a Dutchware to have as an item in my day hike pack so the ENO was not getting much use.

    Did I like it? Sure. It worked just fine. In fact, I still have the ENO Atlas straps and use them all the time.

    A lot has to do with it being a "short" hammock and thus not very comfortable for overnight use. My first hammock was an ENO Doublenest. I use it for lounging at the park and have basically given it to my son. At 6'2" I learned very quickly it was not going to work out as an overnighter hammock.

    Funny you should say this as I know most folks say the same thing. Being 5'2" it was never an issue for me but my younger brother is 6'4" and on the north side of 300lb..how far north he won't say..and he loves the ENO DBL. I offered him an 11' hammock and he told me "no thanks". Different strokes for different folks I guess. BTW, he sleeps in his ENO every night he is home. He is a distance trucker so is only home about 3 nights a week but he doesn't own another bed.

    I started out with an ENO Doublenest but upgraded to a Warbonnet Blackbird XLC this year. Night and day difference. I'm glad some people like their ENO's, but for me there's no comparison to the XLC. Yeah, there's a big difference on the price point, but I sleep a LOT better in the XLC and don't regret the purchase at all. Like they say, hang your own hang!

    What I find even more interesting is that you can get a Warbonnet Traveler XL with full webbing/buckle suspension for $75 shipped. That's an 11' hammock with a great suspension for less than an ENO with no suspension. So, the idea that you have to spend more $$ to get a cottage industry hammock is not valid- especially if you're comparing apples to apples- i.e.- netless to netless. Obviously, once you start throwing in additional options (like integrated bugnet), you're going to spend more.

    I think that's the other reason why folks are light on the "Eno love." It doesn't take much additional research to see that you can easily get a netless cottage industry hammock for at least the same price- if not less than an Eno. I will say that we still need to credit Eno for building awareness for hammocking. If it weren't for them, many of the cottage vendors probably wouldn't exist!
