    Welcome to the forum.

    What specifically would you like to know about ENO's? Quite a few of us have used ENO's extensively. Great hammocks.

    Just off the top of my head -

    Pros -
    - simple
    - flexible
    - durable
    - comfortable

    Cons -
    - no integrated bug net
    - slapstraps are made of nylon, and stretch a lot (easily replaced)
    - no pad sleeve (can be tricky to use a pad inside the hammock)
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    i always liked the ease of entry/exit/access to pack of the eno over the hh.

    their hammock (eno) + their bugnet will be heavier and bulkier than the hh.

    I wish I were single so I could buy one of each kind of hammock!

    most don't seem to think the eno tarp is any good, it's not sil, so it's heavy for the coverage, and so is their bugnet

    No no no no no.......STOP! Put down that search engine befor you hurt someone with it. My advice unto thee is to avoid ENO tarps like the plague. Their coverage is exceptionally poor and they're heavy to boot. They've come out with a sil model, but it's pretty expensive for the amount of coverage you get from it. There are many more excellent tarps out there that have much better coverage. Speer, JRB, MacCat, etc are all excellent options.

    seems that most hammockers get something other than the stock tarp - the Hennessy isn't large enough to use for a porch or cold weather camping. The Speer winter tarp, the JRB tarps, the Mac Cat tarps are some of the better looking options, IMO. I have a tarp made by Preacha's wife - not sure they are still in business but it's still holding together despite my tripping over guy lines repeatedly.

    lori: ooooh, you have a Precha's Wife tarp? I'm jealous. I was about to order one when I got the impression that she wasn't making them anymore.

    I agree that a tarp that is around 10x11 or 10x12 is better in a lot of conditions than a smaller one. Beyond that, it is up to each hanger what flavor/features they find useful.

    I would opt for a double if you go for the ENO hammock. I have a TrekLight double (which is now my backup hammock), ummm, actually I have two TL doubles now that I think of it... Anyway, the double hammock is easier to get a good lay in. Ummm, I mean that to say, it's easier to lay diagonally and get flatter.

    Oh, right! I think we KNOW what you REALLY meant, Shadowmoss! I remember those pics of you and Cereberus ( was it?) in your TL double at

    Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.
