    Two People In One Hammock?

    Every-so-often a post shows up asking "is it possible/comfortable to sleep two people in one hammock?"

    What is your experience?

    Wife and I snooze for short naps from time to time, but we both like to stretch out and have our own space after a bit. For camping 2 hammocks are always the way to go for us.

    Dang! How do I edit a poll! I forgot to add "Yes, but it didn't work well" or something. That's my experience

    Can't edit a poll once it's set. You can start a new one, but this one is what it is.
    I like sleeping double on occasion. Not something I want to do every night, but on a cold night, a second body is a gooooood thing.

    I had to mark "no".
    Although 2 plp in a hammock can be fun at times, the sleeping part just does not work for me...

    GF and I double up in my ENO DN. Took some practice and getting used to it but as cold sleepers we really appreciate the extra warmth. I can see how it doesn't work for everyone though.

    Definitely gonna get a second hammock for her for the summer months. Way to humid here for snuggling long term.

    Last time I hung I had my son with me. It's not bad unless he kicks you in the ribs at 2am or you got to get up to pee at 4:30 am and he hogs the hammock when you get back.

    I tried it in an ENO Doublenest and it was terribly uncomfortable. Whoever gets in first is on bottom and is seemingly crushed from top and bottom. Not a comfortable way to sleep. Bunk beds is the way to go if only 2 trees to work with.
    oldgringo's reply to my worrying about owning extra hammocks:

    How many pairs of underwear do you own? Do you refer to them as "extras", simply because you're not wearing all of them as we speak?
