    Hammock Hole

    I have an eno single nest hammock that is beginning to show a breakthrough in the form of a dime sized hole. Will this hole continue to grow? Will I fall out of it on my next 3 day hike? Should I replace immidiatley or will it take a while? If replacement is needed I would love some suggestions on an affordable ultralight hammock setup that wont break after a year.

    If you have any sewing skills at all you could always sew a patch on there.

    Patch it as above or try Tenacious Tape. If you use the tape method do both sides, that should add more strength to the repair imo. Cheers.

    I agree with the patch. Its not going to really cost you that much even if you have to bring it in to someplace (if you don't sew or know someone). Its at least worth a shot.

    ENO's warranty page says that hammocks with large holes or tears may be eligible for replacement. It seems the warranty claim process is different depending on if you bought your hammock directly from ENO's site or from a retailer. Have a look at the link above and good luck!

    I put a hole in my DN with a tent spike, cut one of these in half and put it on both sides over the hole. Has held well, but it hasn't been that long. I had to order them from REI, and got extras to keep handy.
