    Anybody put 2 people in a Skeeter Beeter pro?

    I'm getting my best friend a SB Pro for his birthday, but I had also considered an ENO Doublenest so he could put his girlfriend in there as well. I'm just wondering if the SB Pro is large enough for two people, assuming the weight isn't too much. He's a pretty hefty guy, she's super skinny. I'd hate for them to try piling on and wreck the hammock. (I'm getting the SB Pro because he wanted a bug net).

    In my experience the Skeeter Beeter Pro is a nice hammock for one person. But they tend to run short and narrow. Given the innate difficulties with two people in one hammock I would not recommend it. But then neither would I recommend a ENO Doublenest for two people unless they knew for sure they would be adaptable to it. Two folks in one hammock requires a certain temperament and sleep style. It can be done but many people do not do that for long term sleeping. Note I said many... not all.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.
