    Back to the ENO Double!

    Years ago my first hammock was an ENO double. Not satisfied being a newbie I went to a Hennesey, that did'nt work out so I jumped on the Black Bird wagon. Wicked cool hammock but it just did'nt fit me right. Failing to realize that the Traveler was the same basic size as the BB I gave that a shot but again I could not find my sweet spot. So I am back with my first love and it is GREAT! Its four years old and dialed in with a longer (than most) ridge line I could'nt be happier. I had trimmed off the colored sides years ago added some whoopis slings and a removable DIY bug net...all those waisted years!

    So for any newbies that have an ENO double dont feel like your missing out on all the talk about the other "high end" hammocks, dont get me wrong the other hammocks are true works of art, but dont think for a minute your ENO is any less of a hammock.

    Good points. Those years weren't wasted if they helped you figure out what works for you. My first hammock was AN ENO DN and I too trimmed the sides off. It still get used a lot a well.

    I started out buying "high end" hammocks, but being a complete gear addict, I recently purchased an ENO dbl as it was recommended by another forum member as their favorite "convertible" hammock. I haven't done an overnight yet but I can see what KMACK is talking about. It's an incredibly comfortable hammock - in fact - probably now my favorite to lounge in. The fabric is very soft on the skin and I like how there's just a little bit of stretch to it, conforming to your body.

    There should be no shame in owning this hammock, that's for sure.

    Yes, indeed it is my love too. Why did you trim the sides down? Was it a "weight" thing? Just curious, as I can't imagine not having those.

    Isn't the SingleNest just a double with no sides?

    No, there is a difference in the size of the hammocks' bodies, especially in the width sans sides.

    I am very new to hammocks, so please be kind in your answers. The double are you using it single? How much weight will it hold? What about shoulder room I have very large shoulders? Please be kind I'm an old man and I cry easy.

    I cut the sides off because they did not seen to serve any real function other that flopping into my face. It also shaved about 3 or 4oz off.

    Dannytoo please dont cry...but I dont recall the weight limit. The best thing about it is that it dosnt come with a fixed ridge line so you can make it with as little or as much sag as you see fit. I'm 6' 180lbs and run a 108" ridge line...thats what works for me. Oh and yes I use it as single.
