    It ain't easy and it requires that you 'share', but it can be done. I think I've only got 3 or 4 more to go to have at least one model from all the major players and the lion's share of the smaller players. Bridge and Clark are still on the list.

    rub it in why dont you! I cant believe you left the bridge and clark for one of the last. Those have been on the top of my list. Just got the JRB BMBH, next is Clark or warbonnet.

    Anyway the ENO is a great, simple hammock. I really enjoy mine and find time to lay in it almost everyday.

    I couldn't find any Clarks to try for the longest time. I am currently in possession of two of them lent to me by another forum member; the North American and the NX 200. I'm giving them a go now to see if the Vertex is in my future. As for the Bridge, well I'm a big fella and I initially heard they weren't the greatest for wide shouldered folks. Then there was a rumor about them making a larger version, so I held off. Not likely to last much longer unless the Jacks make some announcement about a coming soon XL version. Doubt seriously I'll leave Trail Days without one.

    Do NOT, I repeat DO NOT waste your money on an ENO tarp. Mine honestly wouldn't even completely cover my hammock in a mild rain.

    Oh wait a minute. YEAH, the ENO tarp is GREAT!!! I'll sell you one CHEAP!

    Seriously, invest in an oversize tarp so you can actually live under it and sit, read, cook, socialize with others during rain. I use an 8' x 10' rectangular tarp in summer or a Speer Winter Tarp in winter.

    I love the easy entry into the top-loading ENO in cool weather where bugs are not an issue. I find it easier to rig my underquilt on it as well.

    In summer, I run with a HH and a pad.

    I have an HH and an ENO. I've had the ENO for 5 years and slept in it for those years. I used it before the bugnets or tarp were available. I had a piece of netting and a very thin plastic drop cloth that I suspended on a ridgeline over the hammock and positioned it with a couple of clothes pins. Very primitive, but very effective and lightweight. I only bought an HH last year. Positioning the HH is more of a pain than the eno. I do use the ENO slapstraps for both. I am just not a perfectionist, after several uses I could eyeball the compensation needed for the stretch factor. It just didn't seem to be such a major issue to me. I bought the HH Safari model, so it is heavy. My ENO setup is lightweight and more casual. Both styles have their uses, the HH for more strenuous environmental conditions and the ENO setup for life in the tropics and subtropics where heat is my most pressing issue.

    The ENO hammocks are great. The bug netting & tarp are, as mentioned above, not so much. The netting is heavy & Huge. The tarp is: a weird shape, heavy for the coverage and there aint much coverage.
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
    PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.

    Here is the secret put all your gear in the same color stuff sacks after a while she will loose track and its really easy to just slide another stuff sack with that new hammock or other gear into the stack. When the stack gets to growing buy a half dozen solid colored totes to organize things a bit. Keep a couple empty on the bottom to stash gear quickly. I managed to fill an entire building this way. She finally give up trying to keep track.

    They're similar in that they are symmetric hammocks of the end-gathered variety. But, that's about it.

    The ENO has a sewn end channel instead of whipping, an attached stuff sack, and comes in several widths. The Speer is actually a whipped end hammock, a detachable bugnet, and the fabric is quite different.
