    Eno one link or Hennessy?

    I have narrowed my selection down to two hammocks. Either an eno pronest with profly or a Hennessy expedition with hex fly. They are similar price. What is everyone else's opinion on which is all around better, and the best value.

    I have the ENO dbl and the Hennessy Explore which is similar to what you are looking at. For comfort, I take my HH every time. Value, price being equal they are pretty equal. Assuming you are a hiker, I am not, you will want to check weight and pack size.

    But, keep in mind, we are all different and what is more comfy for me might suck for you.

    Welcome from the Jersey Shore. I'd take the HH with Hex over the ENO OneLink. The ENO tarps are somewhat skimpy.

    The one positive about the OneLink is you can leave the bugnet at home in non-bug season. However, that's really only a consideration if you're a hiker. If you are, then you can probably find lighter setups than either the ENO or the Hennessy.

    Buttinasling Hiker Lite Hammock, 9 oz. $34.95
    Buttinasling Buginator Bugnet 8.8 oz $64.95
    WL Tadpole Tarp 11.5 oz $85
    Suspension 4 oz. $28.85
    Total Cost $214
    Total Weight 33.3 oz

    HH Expedition Asym Zip 31 oz. $120
    HH Hex Tarp 23 oz. $79.95
    Total Cost $200
    Total Weight 54 oz.

    SingleNest Hammock 17 oz.
    Guardian Bugnet 16 oz
    Slap Straps 11 oz
    Profly Tarp 22 oz
    Total Cost $209.95
    Total Weight 66 oz.

    Food for thought.

    Do you have the standard tarp that comes with it? Also I am pretty sure snakeskins are standard issue with those is that correct?

    That was my first hammock and I loved it (well, except the calf cramps I got). Once I tried a BIAS Weight Weenie Micro, the Hennessy Expedition hasn't left the gear closet. I haven't had a calf cramp since.

    I bought my Hennessy at REI so it didn't include the snake skins. The standard tarp was included and I have found it to be more than adequate.

    No calf cramps here.
