    I have a question as the double ENO I am getting is on back order. There are significant symalarities between the ENO and the Treklight is the reason that the ENO has a weight capacity of 400lbs and the Treklight 300lbs because they use diferent materials in the hammock body or the difference in the cord they use to support it? Just curious if anyone knows.

    TrekLight - thanks for supporting the HF community. Manufacturer input is always welcome...what better info source than the guys who make it?

    I must have been thinking of a different one that has the same look as the above mentioned.

    You might be right about that. One less thing to think about I guess.

    The rope is most likely being switched out this weekend for a hike. I've got some tentative hike plans and am still trying to decide which hammock to take. See why I don't need one of those HHs on sale right now; still want one, just don't need one. I've already decided to take it just for break-time. If I'm not sleeping in it, it won't matter if it gets wet so I'll just throw it in one of the outer pockets on my pack and have quick access during one of the many, many lazy moments in my day. Since I'm only out for 3 days, I've got gobs of room for heavy luxuries. If I get a cool evening and the bugs aren't bad, I'll use it for a sleeper.

    For lounging, forget about it. This thing is perfect. You can flip, or if you prefer, you can flop into just about any position. Which has, as a byproduct, convinced me that I need another stand. I mean it's not like the loveseat is being used all that much and if it was gone there would be a perfect spot for a stand. Football season in a hammock; I need one of those plant holders you hang from the ceiling to hold my queso dip; I can hang it from the cross brace on the Risk Stand. A PM will get you the recipe.

    Once my week is up I'll post a little more, but at this point I'm just enjoyin the hang.
