    I have GTs, not ENOs... But I understand they are extremely similar. I have both the double and the single and while the double's extra room is nice, for backpacking I find the single is just fine. I can get the same lay in both, it just takes a little more work in the single.

    Double nest is your best shot. Make sure when you get it toss the rope crap out of the hammock and the caribeeners and put whoopies or continuous loop their the best. Do not buy their suspension,tarps or underquilt I can tell you its crap the only good thing is it does not strech. The under quilt does not have quality down and messed up baffles."Their Tarps are crap you can get a better bang for your buck with cottage vendors. But just like everybody says DN is pretty good for you ENO wise. The wider the hammock the better your lay so get as long and wide as you can.

    Honestly, I like their new atlas straps. I use my ENO when car camping and weight isn't an issue, and their atlas straps are a breeze to set up, albeit a little heavy.
    I solemnly swear that I am up to no good...

    Re: Double nest vs Single?

    So the best thing to get is a DN?.... im new with hammock camping . never camped in one before. I was looking to get the SN. Cause im not that tall. Im 5'8 about 200 pounds. Im pretty short and stocky.... I just thought the SN was good enough or should I get the DN. Thanks

    You'll read the phrase "Dial it in" alot on this forum. Many times a small adjustment will dramatically affect your comfort (structural ridgeline length, underquilt taughtness ect). I think you'd find that you could get comfortable in a SN but, the DN will have a larger margin for error or "sweet spot". It will be easier/faster to "Dial it in" with a DN.

    Either way you'll learn alot.

    Good Luck.

    Double nest for sure. I bought a One Link system with the single nest because it's about the same width as some of my other comfortable hammocks. Turns out that width includes the extra fabric "wings" sewn on to the edges. That extra fabric doesn't really seem to contribute to weight-bearing, and effectively makes the hammock quite a bit narrower... For instance, a $15 Texsport Hobo Hammock 2 is almost identical in actual sheet length/width as the single nest. I can lay very comfortably in that hammock, and it doesn't take me long to find the sweet spot (I'm a side sleeper). I gave up on trying to get comfortable in the single nest and ordered the double.

    Most of my time is spent trekking in the jungle or paddling a sea kayak. I love every part of my One Link system with Atlas straps, and wouldn't change a thing other than the carabiners. ENO sells quality ones, but they're around $17 for two. You can get the same biner from REI for around $6 each. I wouldn't use the new 400 pound ones that come with any new hammock.

    Cheers,
    Matt

    I wouldn't get either...too expensive for what they are. For that price you can get one from our wonderful cottage guys such as BIAS and have a quality piece of gear. But then again, if everyone did what I suggest this thread would've never happened...
