    ENO DN Deluxe Must Do Mods?

    I've ordered my DN Deluxe and will be picking it up on my way down to FL in a couple weeks.
    Looking over this forum and other areas, I'm wondering what are the Must Do mods for this hammock when it comes to hammock camping.

    I've ordered just the hammock as of now as I know I'm going to find non-ENO products that will work better and or be less expensive.

    I have a couple months before I dive in to hammock camping with my first multi-day kayak trip.

    Things I did to mine that I love:

    - Removed entire ENO suspension, replaced with whoopie slings.

    - Removed stuff sack, cut off straps/buckle, put a grommet in the bottom to turn it into a bishop bag.

    - Added an adjustable ridgeline
    With beauty all around you, may you walk.

    Not sure about any absolute must do's, but I think most would say the biggest improvement would be to switch out the stock suspension gear. I'm not even sure how important this is, if you are getting their new upgraded carabiners (haven't seen them in person). Adding a ridgeline takes a lot of the fiddling out of the setup.

    I was going to ask what the issue was with their suspension. I noticed browsing the forum that it's pretty much what everyone does.

    So the ridgeline makes sense.
    The suspension system has issues with the beaners hooking material (and weight).
    What's the reasoning behind removing the stuff sack?

    It's personal preference, but a bishop bag makes setting up and taking down the hammock much quicker and easier, in my opinion.

    That makes sense.
    It's on the to do list.

    My hammocks are GTs not ENOs, but this is what I did to both of them.

    +1 here

    I have an ENO SN, been considering doing the bishop bag... dogs chewed a hole in it years ago so it'll be super easy!

    I also ditched the ropes in the end channels and made some dog bones out of dynaglide.

    Had an Amstel ARL until I found a comfy lay then made a non-adjustable out of lash-it. Now the fiancé is dialing hers in with the ARL.

    I've been using whoopies and carabiners for a few months and decided to lighten it a bit more with dynaglide UCR's, can't wait to try them out, whoopie hooks and mule tape are soon to come.

    Also ordered some custom underquilts from Mike at te-wa. REALLY can't wait for those!!!

    Next on the list is mosquito netting and the knotty mod.
