    i think its great! .

    a lot of folks don't need UL gear - and don't care to research the art of the hammock on HF.

    fact is, maybe they can only get out 3 times a year--- and a 750FP is good enough.


    i'll keep to the cottages, though, and help to support the families that make custom gear for true enthusiasts---not the generic public.

    If it's shaped like their Ember Underquilt I'd wonder if it'll have cold spots.

    I agree. I just got one of ENO's hammocks and nearly bought the one link deal thinking "well I will need all this anyway" however after some research I found out how bad the straps are and how cheap it would be to make my own of higher quality.
    So in what little experience I have with hammocks its seems like eno is the hip way to go since they put it all together and you dont have to think at all.

    personally I'm thankful for this forum for all the info and for saving me some $$ but i like reading into things.

    I fell victim to slap straps so I know the feeling. Only after my double nest and slap straps did I find this forum

    Blaze Underquilt
    Sleep like the royals do, nestled in down feather splendor. But forget the stuffy four-poster bed, the Blaze Underquilt is made with 750FP down for the ultimate in cold-weather comfort with your favorite ENO hammock. A rip stop nylon shell with DWR finish is durable and resists moisture, while the nylon taffeta liner is smooth against your skin.



    Got to love the selling point, since the UQ is under the hammock and not against your skin

    They want you to use the underquilt inside the hammock with you? That is what their words say. Pics would be better.

    I'm glad this forum is saving someone some $$$! It has cost most of us a fortune!

    As for ENO trying to offer a more complete system to the market...good for them for trying. I would dare to guess that 90% of their customer base is no where near as informed as the community on Hammock Forums. We all know there are much better options out there from our cottage vendors, but not everyone buying a hammock knows that our cottage vendors even exist. They are offering a mass-produced/mass-marketed product to people around the world. Don't expect to get the same attention to detail that our tuned-in cottage vendors can offer. For now, it's a step in the right direction for them, and it will make hammock camping a lot more comfortable for a lot of first timers with cold butt syndrome!

    I guess we should give ENO some credit for their offering, but I think for the same money, JRB will sell you something better and lighter. 750FP isn't very good compared to 900 FP you can get elsewhere for the same or less money.

    I love my DN but all else ENO just doesnt look to be a good value for the money.
    I may be lost but I am making great time.
