    Question How can I tell if it's the right hammock for me? Eno double deluxe

    I just bought a Eno double deluxe today at Rei and set it up in the back yard and laid in it and realized I may have bought more than I can chew. The size of the D.D is 8'4x9'4 and I'm thinking this may just be too big. I wanted the hammock for hiking and camping on foot and now I'm thinking it may not work. I'm not in love with it so should I just end up returning it for something a tad smaller? Or do you believe this may work for my needs? I'm only 6'4 and 170. I know the question is vague but I just want some input before I decide to keep or return it.

    I guess what I'm asking is the D.D just really too big for my purposes, as well will it extra large size make it difficult for a commercial u.q? I'm sure if I made my own I could make it exact to it. I know I need a double but maybe not the California King of hammocks.

    You know best what you like and don't like. That is a large hammock, hence the "double" designation.

    As with most gear, one is not enough. You might buy a dissimilar hammock and compare the two before deciding which to send back.

    I have two Hennessey Hammock which I think are very good. But I just bought a Warbonnet Blackbird which I think will suit me better but have not had the opportunity to prove that to myself yet.

    You may find someone soft to cuddle up with on those nice sunny days. Then your double nest will be worth its weight in gold, I can ensure you that.
    If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.
