    My first night SLEEPING in my ENO.

    My first night actually sleeping in my ENO will be Saturday night! Some friends and I are going camping again. I can't wait! I don't have my bugnet yet but, I am willing to slather on the bug dope. Actually in backpacker last month they had the results of their bug dope test. They found that the Eucalyptus/Lemon bug dope worked the best. So Ill be picking that up at wal-mart. Will report back.

    Neo, you really need a date. Bad.

    Im back

    Pictures will be up tomorrow. A friend took the pics and has to upload them to their pc.


    So I had a little wine before going to sleep in my ENO. I climbed in and got comfy. It is amazing how many different positions you can sleep in a hammock and be comfy. At first I was laying so that I was looking out over the lake and it was SO PEACEFUL! I closed my eyes and after a minute or two got sea sick from the rocking. Opened my eyes to realize I wasn't rocking anymore it was the wine that had me "rocking" So I told myself "Its just the booze" I repositioned a few times. Actually a few dozen times and finally settled on the fetal position, as that is how I fall asleep at home. I fell right to sleep. The bugs kinda kept ...well -bugging me...so I pulled my sleeping bag over me and was fine. It wasn't too hot. The breeze under the hammock felt like an AC! It was nice! Everyone complained about sweating this morning and I slept like a baby. My hips didn't hurt nor did my back! I am hooked. HOWEVER...

    I have decieded to defect from the ENO hammock to a Hennessy. For more than 1 reason.

    1. The ENO was just to try out hammocking with the possibility of upgrading. I like the ENO but, now want to upgrade.

    2. My partner ,after almost forcibly inserting her, tried the hammock and now is the proud new owner of the ENO. ALTHOUGH upon trying it she was yapping "I hate it already, I dont want to try it, its stupid" "There Im in it, I HATE IT. I don't like this SWINGING back and forth all the time.*so I stopped it from swinging*" 10 minutes later I realized she was still swinging in it with her leg dangling to keep up momentum.

    3. Though having a bug bivy will be versatile I just don't see myself wanting to deal with it after a day of hiking.

    4. Im too lazy to deal with making a ridgeline. HH HAVE them already!

    5. The slap straps are WONDERFUL but, I wish they were attached.

    So basically within a month or so I am going to start scouting ebay and the for sale threads for a HH. I am still going to use my MacCat Standard.


    All and All I like the ENO but, am seeing the convenience of a HH for my style of sleeping. I love options but, comfort/convenience is where its at when it comes to sleep.

    You might check the other options, too. Speer has a detachable bug net, I believe. Claytor has some good features which include an attached bug net and double bottom. I got the cheaper jungle hammock from EBay that is made in VietNam and I'm playing with it to modify it with tie-outs and such, and it was under $50 delivered. It has an attached bugnet and double bottom, but is shorter than your ENO I think.

    You might like the HH line. But at least check out the others to see what you think.

    I am 5'2" so shorter isn't a problem for me. Thanks for the info.
