    Get the DN. you won't be disappointed. Also, unlike some here, I really like the Eno Atlas straps. They don't stretch and are very adjustable. You can always modify later. Personally I think as a newbie, its always best to grow into your hammock, and modify down the road after YOU personally have tried it out and evaluated whats best for YOU.

    That being said, happy hammocking!

    I have 2 sets of ENO Atlas straps and love them. If you get on Austin Kayak's email listing, you can get their 15% off coupons and get them cheap at:

    I wound up getting a SN and a set of whoopies from arrowhead equipment. I don't want to use the carabiners... I'm trying to figure out how to get the variable loop to attach to the hammock loop end, so I can use the other end and do the hennessy lashings. It's not working so far.

    Double nest vs Single?

    Fold the loop closed and put it though the end, then put the fixed exe though the loop and pull it tight. Why not put the fixed eye though like normal?

    Love it! Going to do that this weekend. I can attach the adjustable ridge line to the loop at the same time and solve another problem. Still trying to figure out how to use my tree straps with the whoopies without needing some type of carabiner or metal attachment. But I'm getting there. Even with the metal carabiners in the ENO bag (and the Hennessy tree straps) the ENO is lighter. The Hennessy feels roomier though, side to side.

    I'm 6'1 and I own a single nest. I must say it is far to short for me to get a comforatable nights sleep in. Its great for lounging or a quick nap though.

    Instead of a carabiner clipped on the webbing around the tree. It works just as good to run the webbing through the loop rather then using the carabiner. And if you use this method instead of a rod for the marlin spike hitch. You could use a stick that you can get in the woods....

    I dont really like the whoppie sling... I replaced the carabiner on the hammock with a soft shackle and two decender rings on each end. Then I have a10 foot webbing strap on each end that I rap around the tree, put it through the loop then put the end of the strap though the decender rings. That away ill be able to adjust my hammock easily.

    And here's how I do it with webbing.. it was a little hard to explain....and this guy has all kinds of nice videos on hammocks. You should check them out on your down time.
