    Smile guy out points on an ENO

    Has anyone ever added guy out points like bottom of a hennessy asym has?

    As you know the double nest tends to wrap around you face and feet a bit, I own a few hennessy's and thought it would be a great thing to add to my ENO.

    I don't own an ENO, but it never hurts to try. What you might wan to do before sewing it is use a penny to make a place you can temporarily tie something to so if you don't like t that way you can change it back. Just my two cents.

    That's a great idea to use a penny! Never thought of that.


    I don't think the knotty mod would help with it wrapping around you, rather I think it would make it worst..
    I have tie outs on a DIY hammock I have and LOVE them. Makes it feel like there's so much more room.

    I did the knotty mod on my eno dn and it helps out, takes all that slack out of the sides. If you try out the side guy outs let us know how that goes

    Sweet. I stand corrected! One thing I love about this forum- if you haven't tried it, someone most likely has and will chime in.

    Me too. The grip clips with shock cord work well enough but I just found there was too much material due in part to my height. Cutting off the coloured edges made my ENO the perfect width for me so no tie outs were needed.

    Agree about the extra width, but only for sleeping.
    I got the double nest over the single because sitting in the hammock with your legs over one side allows the wide hammock to support your head
