    Eno dn

    Just wanted to know what the general opinion of the eno doublenest was. How many use it and what are your thoughts about it? Is it a hommock which can be upgraded for 3 or 4 season use? ect. Thanks for your input.

    I owned an ENO DN for several months and recently upgraded to a Wilderness Logics Lite Owl. The Lite Owl is about 1' longer, but is not nearly as wide as the ENO. The Lite Owl is way more comfortable in my opinion. I can lay on my sides and stomach, which I was never really able to do in my ENO.

    I do like the material ENO uses. It's really light and breathable, which is great for warm weather hanging. However, mosquitos will bite right through the fabric, which I discovered one morning when I woke to my back being full of welts. But, I really like the material WL uses as well. I doubt I will ever use my ENO DN again (I'll probably give it to my dad or someone).

    The ENO is a good bit heavier than the WL LO, even after I removed the stock suspension. The Double Nest has lots of extra fabric to give it its "double width."

    You can definitely upgrade the ENO to 3-4 season use by adding a UQ. The Lite Owl is probably better for 3-4 season use because it is double layer and because you can slide a pad between the layers.

    Considering everything, I would go with something from WL or the other vendors that support this site.

    I don't have a lot of experience with any hammock. I will say that my DIY tablecloth hammock is more comfortable though. I think it's because the DN is a little bit shorter. My wife has no issues with the DN so it's probably really in the eye of the beholder and you won't really know until you try one out.

    I enjoy mine. I use a REI sleeping pad with a chair kit left on it(bars in) so the DN works very well I did remove the ropes and carabiners and now use Jack R Better straps and buckles. I use a Leigh Lo underquilt dring the cold months. I also like the material the DN is made from.

    I have my doublenest in my room, i like it..
    Winter use is more the Quilts or other insulation than the hammock.
    Dont really need a net in the winter, no real bug issue that time of year.

    I have both a SN and a DN hanging up in my basement at the moment. Like others have said, I really like the material they use, and there's a lot of it. I'm a little under 6 feet, and I lay in it comfortably aligned with the hammock, diagonally [GREAT flat lay], on my side, my stomach, and even stretched out horizontally [yes, it's that wide]. The thin material is great during the warm nights when all you need is a bugnet and maybe a tarp. In the colder months, you'll definitely want either an underquilt or something else to insulate your back - you can feel even the slightest breezes through the hammock.

    I sleep in a DN every night and love it. I love the feel of the material and the width also makes it a GREAT lounging hammock for watching tv and stuff like that. I don't know that I would use it down here in the woods (I have a BB for that) but as far as comfort it is great. I hang mine with lots of sag and it is probably my favorite side sleeping hammock (after my big mayan hammock... which is my comfiest hammock by far). I'm 6'2" 220 so the length isn't an issue for me but I do want to try one of the super wide tablecloth hammocks.

    Anyhoo... it's a great hammock, very comfortable, and I would think that with UQ and bug netting it should do just fine out in the woods. Since most of my trips to the woods involve me carrying my gear on my back I would stick with some of the lighter weight models that are meant for backpacking.

    I've had a DN for almost ten years. I love the comfort of the material. Until I learned about diagonal lay I thought it was too much. I did convert to whoopies because I didn't like the stretch of the slap straps. I've never been bug bit thru the hammock. In fact with so much material I could put my keys in the pocket and flip it over myself tto keep bugs away before I got a bug net. I'm only 5'9" so the length seems fine for me.

    Currently I have it hanging in my office. My 10year old begs to sleep in it on weekends. My 20year old uses it when home from college. Its a dark basement room so it is a great setup for afternoon naps.

    Though I've used it for several scout camps and trips, I'm looking at other options for more serious camping. Lighter and built in bug net. But for casual use it is great.
