    ENO - Before and After

    I am so not into the DIY thing (as many of you have already figured out!)

    but I do get OCD about weight and the little bits that add up to bigger weight. I was fortunate to have all my hammocks converted to whoopie slings at TDz this year!

    That got me motivated to do just a bit more weight reduction upon my return...

    I first took the full weight of all the hammocks as sold, then replaced the biners with Whoopies. I then decided to remove more extraneous stuff... the ENO labels and the buckle/compression strap webbing to see how much weight I could remove!

    Double Nest
    1# 7.6oz ---> 1# 2.3oz (5.3oz savings)

    Single Nest
    1# 5.5oz ---> 15.0oz (5.3oz savings)

    I did the same with a Grand Trunk Double
    1# 5.5oz ---> 1# 3.6oz (1.9oz savings)

    GT does not use the heavy biners, but a small S-hook...

    Just thought Id share!

    Cuffs:
    I to have just removed the stuff sack/webbing buckle from from my ENO DN. I also swapped out the beiners for a buckle/strap set-up from Paul and AHE. I do not have a scale to weigh how much was lost/gained to the hammock so I'm glad to see your numbers. I think it gained 14lbs though when I added the ENO bugnet to the mix, man that thing is heavy!!!!!!!! I enev removed the stuff sack and webbing/strap/buckle from it and it still is heavy will have to do some more trimming.

    1st thing I did was get rid of those lead weight beaners even though I only use my ENO now for daytrips I still wanted to rid myself of the extra weight. Not that it really matters but......
