    They are using sub-standard Biners?. I have Two on my Single nest. Will have to Check thx for the heads up.

    My DIY dble liner. has Climbing rated Biners & straps. As with the Single nest has Climbing rated staps. hate to go Thump in the night.

    I just bought an ENO DoubleNest a few days ago. It's hard to see, but they say "Not for climbing" and "Max weight 400 lbs" on one side and "ENO" on the other. They are 35 grams for the pair (assuming my scale is correct).

    They are about the same price as some of the climbing rated carabiners from REI - I just purchased a couple - probably a safer bet. Plus, more colors (I was a able to get a pair of green ones to match my hammock).

    - Loki,

    "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
    Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."

    Thanks for the REI Links guys, I too am thinking of switching out my original ENO biners with lighter weight/better for fabric ones.

    Biners were the first thing to go when I purchased mine. Doesn't make sense to use something you can trust 100%

    I just picked up my ENO DN in late Febuary (amazon.com) and received the old steel carabiners. Those things are really heavy.

    Going to toss them out and replace the rigging. 2 rounds of 24hour driving gave me plenty of time to design a quick setup rigging which will make setup and tear down so much easier.
