    Yep! It looks even better now that it has a green accessory (RMS) to go with it. My girlfriend is getting kind of jealous because I spend too much time with my quilt harem. She's got a lot to learn.

    yep, the only red hammock i've seen made by speer hammocks is Ed's personal hammock that he used to failure... over 5000 estimated hours i think.

    So that's why they call it a Harlot...

    I see many people in this thread advising against Eno because they don't have a complete system with a Bug Net. I am on their website right now contemplating purchase and they have a complete package with everything, including bug netting, for $200. The DoubleNest package is only $10 more.

    Go ahead and try the Eno doublenest. I wouldn't get the Eno tarp. Get yourself something like the new Speer cat tarp or put your money into the new JRB cat tarp. These will offer you much more coverage. This thread talks about the Eno dri-fly tarp. http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ead.php?t=2804

    FF, yeah.. the Eno tarps do look a bit small. I'm just kicking myself because I just ordered an Oware 8x10' FlatTarp last week for ground camping this year and now I am thinking of going into the trees instead.

    You might be able to get away with using that tarp for hanging if you can hang it on the diagonal to give yourself a longer ridgeline.

    I want one of those Speer Winter Tarps because it really gives you the option to button down the hatches for those heavy down pours.

    naww, I'll likely sell it and get something like a MacCat Deluxe.

    the ENO double i have is a really comfortable hammock, but i would agree about getting a tarp else where.
    the main advantage i would consider a speer to have is that it has velcro down both edges, making it easy to add the small, light bug net when needed.
