    ENO Double Nest vs Bliss Double

    I've looked at both of these on their websites, and they look very similar. Does anyone have any experience with both, or know of differences between them? I want to try the extra width, and not sure which one is better. I'm not concerned about the suspension system, I plan to use my own, just wondering about the hammock itself, and whats different, better, worse, between the two.

    There are several hammock manufactures that sell hammocks that look very similar in both design and materials. ENO, Bliss, Siam and Trek come to mind. The ENO's are very popular on this forum, with very few complaints from owners.

    I can't give a comparison between ENO and Bliss, but I can say that my ENO is my favorite hammock.

    Sparrow, your ENO, is it a single or double?

    It's a double. Even for a single person, I'd recommend a double. The difference in weight is minor, and the extra room for stretching out, laying sideways, etc is more than worth it for the comfort.

    Thanks everyone, Sparrow,
    I'm going to order the ENO double.

    Which way do you go with bottom insulation? Will my JRB quilt work with the ENO double or is it too wide.

    It will work just fine. I've got both a Potomac underquilt and a Speer SnugFit and they both fit the ENO nicely.

    My JRB quilt work well as an underquilt with my double hammock.

    I found this tarp today and wondered if anyone has ever tried it. It is the Bliss shelter (tarp) for $40 its not that bad a price.
