    Double Nest ultimate test

    Hello all I went out into the Eastern Tennesse Hills laast week for three days with my trusty Eno Double Nest it rained all three days extreamly hard with wind gust up to 35mph. My tarp set up was nothing more then a !0x10 walmart blue tarp ran at a diamond. Needles to say out of our group I was the only one not having to sleep with wet gear I was bone dry. The doublenest was great for both holding my self and a fifty pound Lab very comfortable with out any hassels at all. since that trip three of the group members have since ran out and picked up double nest and packed their tent away for good.

    I have heard the saying that ounced you hang you will never sleep in a tent again well you all were right

    cant wait for my nest hang on memirial day

    Nice story. I love hanging in my hammock in the rain watching the water flow underneath me. I hang in more than 1 tent spot like that.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    You saw the light and felt the dry.
    My favorite thing is hanging dry under a tarp in a rain storm in the piney woods. Whoooo Buddy.
