    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.
    Thanks KMACK for the information. I'm a little heaver than you by about 60 lbs. I am just getting into hanging and have been reading a lot and y'all seem to know what is going on, I'll be asking a lot more questions.

    the posted weight limit on ENO's site for the DN is 400 lb. I also have broad shoulders and i've not had any problems with shoulder squeeze with my DN. hope this helps.

    I've never had one of the over priced hammocks and I never will pay that kind of money for one. I love my ENO DN. There never has been a problem with EN hammocks. I havent cut the sides down either.

    I've never had a problem with my eno double flopping in my face. I like the sides, as I use it all when I lay on an angle and flip flop from one side to the next. Yes, I'm one of "those" sleepers, plus I'm broad across the shoulders. The sides along my feet also help whatever top quilt I'm using to stay inside the hammock....even if it's a rectangle sleeping bag.

    I did get these very inexpensive hammocks off ebay. I was curious about what they were. Talk about lucking out. They are wide, and quite comfortable. They are going to be what we use in our "hammock barn". The only problem with them is the ends are those tie out types with all the cords, a tangled mess if you were going to use for camping/hiking, but great for hanging in one spot. Still trying to figure out how to convert them a bit to work for winter camping because they are warmer than the Eno.

    I got in to hammocking with an eno single type of hammock and have since bought two doubles. The first one went to my son after I got the second one. I've done the whoopie sling conversion and added a ridge line to help dial in the sag. Its my favorite way to camp again (like rediscovering you long lost best friend). I'm still piecing things together for my eno like a lighter tarp, and an underquilt.

    I've also looked into getting a black bird but it looks like a very narrow hammock. But I wouldn't mind a HH exped deluxe.
    Life looks better from a BIAS hammock.

    Count me in.

    I have enough hammocks to start a business, but if forced to choose one...
