    How To Hang in ENO SN

    Okay so I finally have my eno hammock set up in my room and have been working at getting the right lay forever and come into a few noobie questions on setup.

    1. I am using a regular suspension whoopie sling as a srl will this work?
    2. when I lay in my eno on a diagonal should there be a wall of fabric next to my head?
    3. Also should my feet be hanging near the edge of the hammock on the strip of extra fabric that is on the eno?
    4. On the Eno which side does your head and feet go on? Is it head left feet right or the other way?
    I am thinking I also might have it hanging too high I am unsure. and maybe I am too tall for the ENO SN? I'm about 6'1". If need be I can post a picture of the setup.

    Thanks in advance for the help!

    Thanks that helped a lot. I am going to mess around with the SN some more as I am hesitant to get the DN. I have read that it has a lot of extra fabric and I don't want to get swallowed up being pretty skinny.

    How To Hang in ENO SN

    I like my DN but I'm 6 feet and a big guy. I've finally gotten used to where my butt's gotta land in the hammock so when I put my feet in I don't have fabric covering my head... Its a personal preference thing, but I like the extra fabric near the feet. At night I also tend to turn into the hammock to sleep on my side so the extra fabric on that side makes it so I don't need to readjust.

    Extra fabric doesn't bother me at all, I'd rather have a bit much than not enough.. I've found the 60" wide hammocks can leave me with my head or feet hanging off the end if I fiddle around in the hammock too much.

    Enjoy your tweaking!

    At 5'10, I can just barely get a comfortable diagonal lay in my SN, and I still have to be careful that my feet don't slip.

    I have the feet slipping problem when I try to move around a lot. Also, if the suspension isn't at a 30 degree angle will this affect the lay? My angle is around 40 degrees.

    Also thanks for the replies I am seriously thinking of getting a DN or possibly a wbbb.
