    Double nest vs Single?

    Why would you use a DN alone, over a SN? Just curious as I have seen several double nest users here. Is it just roomier?

    The Double nest is wider. Some of the folks here like myself appreciate the extra fabric on the sides of the DN. I think it gives me a flatter lay. Although there are those who own the DN and remove the extra fabric from the sides. As sometimes the "flaps of fabric" can get in the way. All based on what you prefer. I own both and I like the DN better for the extra room.

    We have both but I like the DN just a little flatter and roomier for me. Also good just in case one of the younger kids wants in... the 2 legged or 4 legged kind.

    I have a DN, I like the extra with. My youngest boy has a SN, it's great for him being he's only 6. I have slept in it and find the DN is a flatter lay.

    What I did not like about the SN was the seam of the side fabric would catch me under my shoulder. It was enough to bother me and make me not want to use it. That's just me.

    I have both and honestly, I prefer the single. The double has way to much fabric on the sides, it's either on my face or has a cat caught under it. I get just as good a lay in the single without all the fabric woes. I think the kittykats like the single better too, they don't like the "trapped" feeling...

    It will depend alot on how big/tall you are. I have single and double wide hammocks and preferr the wider hammocks as I am a big guy (6ft 2 and 280lbs).

    I am only 5'6"; I started with the DN and really enjoyed it. Being wider it allowed me to get on a really nice diagonal for a flat lie. The extra fabric didn't bother me much. Once in a while when it is really windy it would flap on me a bit, but I found it handy for pulling around myself and cocooning when I wanted to sleep late and the sun to go away
    I solemnly swear that I am up to no good...
