    for $60 I'd look into the warbonnet traveler. I liked the lay better (as compared to a singlenest) plus it already has the suspension with it. my 2 cts

    The DN has too much fabric for one person, in my opinion, even laying diagonally, it's too much 'flap", as others (Big Jim, et al) have posted about here. Loads of flapping fabric hitting you in the face. Good for two, though, as my wife and I use it together. I prefer the ENo single nest for one person.

    That said. I concur with chief--I'd get a WB Traveller any day over a ENO DN again.

    I hate to say it publicly, but Genuine Draft prefers the TrekLight and ENO Doubles to anything else I have. That, sadly, includes her Blackbird and Traveler. Neither of us are bothered by the 'loose' material. Probably because the hammocks we sleep in at home are wider still than the Doubles, so we're used to wide hammocks. Honestly, we don't notice the extra material at all. I assume it's due to the very hard diagonal we sleep on normally. It's also very nice when we do want to sleep in the same hammock to be able to do so with relative comfort in the Doubles.

    Still, that is probably the most common complaint about the double sized hammocks. Just isn't an issue in my world, but I'm far from somebody that is considered 'normal'.

    I'd probably be more inclined to list their weight as my biggest issue with them. For backpacking, they are on the heavier side.

    The suspension is obvious, but very easy to change out so I wouldn't really count that either.

    I was ok with the extra material, but I didn't think it was needed to get the flat lay. And if it's not needed, then why carry it?

    The main reason I got rid of mine is b/c I just didn't find it as comfortable as my $4 DIY models. It's a great hammock, but I was expecting a little more since it's so popular here, and it didn't pan out for me.

    Usually the extra material on the double isn't a problem, unless I'm in the wind.

    During the Texas Water Safari I was at the finish line at Sea Drift and had the double eno strung up over the pick-a-nick table under one of the small pavillions. It was really blowin' hard and I got whipped to death! It was tough getting any sleep but I did mange it, some. Should have broke out the blackbird instead, but it was hot and the skitters were blown back into whatever cover so I thought the eno was perfect, and it would have been, if it was a bit calmer, but then the skitters would have been out .....

    For me its just fine. But I am a big guy. I have spend many an afternoon "conducting sleep tests" in my back yard. Of course I am laying in it at an angle (feet on on side and head towards the other.

    I have an ENO DN and it is pretty nice. The flaps don't bother me since I just use them as a sort of blanket. I have two mods though. One was mentioned earlier and that was swapping the heavy cheap rope end ties for a good amsteel whoopie. The second was getting out the old seam ripper and pulling off the heavy strap and buckle that cinches tight the stuff sack. It offends my moderate light/ultralight sensibilities.

    My biggest complaint was with the terribad slap straps that I originally bought with is. Yes, I know this is not a stock option, but the straps in general were by biggest complaint. Easy enough to rectify though, I ordered extra suspension straps when I ordered my wbbb. Problem solved. My DN is by farmy most oft used hammock.
