The lightweight DoubleNest hammock is easy and fast…

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $70

Summary

The lightweight DoubleNest hammock is easy and fast to put up anywhere. I love that it can fit two adults comfortably. It is perfect for camping, hiking and to swing the kids for fun.

My friends and I have an ENO community where we all have our own hammocks that we bring on rustic camping trips. We just find a few nice trees and set up our sleeping spot. I have several hammocks and this is the most comfortable and convenient for rest and relaxation.

Pros

  • Has a pocket on the side of the hammock to fit your phone/flashlight.
  • Can fit two grown adults comfortably or four small children in one hammock.
  • Very soft, comfy, and I love that you can wrap the hammock like a cocoon around you.
  • You can pick fun colors!

Cons

  • You have to buy the straps to hook up to the tree separately.

The setup for this DoublNest hammock is super easy. Just put the straps on the tree and enjoy a good nap. The material is weather resistant and it can take a lot of wear without any problem. I have had mine for several years and it looks brand new, very durable hammock.

The hammock comes in a nicely compact-able packaged bag that you can easily hook to your hiking gear that is very lightweight. Sleeping in my hammock has been a very warm enjoyable experience with the help of quality wind resistant parachute material.

I would recommend this hammock to anyone that loves to relax outside. You can hook your hammock up in a boat. I personally love to hook it up on my sailboat for a comfortable ride on the water. When you purchase the hammock make sure you buy the hookup gear straps because they do not come with the hammock.

Best outside gear I have bought ever. They are the #1 gifts for your favorite outdoor lover.

Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $70 USD

Summary

A versatile, portable, comfortable and easily accessible option for overnight sleeping or just a quick rest. Compresses to a size slightly larger than a grapefruit.

Pros

  • Stuff sack = side pocket. Great for phone, wallet, sunglasses, etc.
  • Quick drying
  • 400 lbs. capacity means I can lay in it with my wife, let my nieces and nephew play in it, or if a black bear comes by and wants to take a nap in it, it won't break.
  • Easy to operate (easy to carry, easy to pack, easy to set-up, easy to tear-down, easy to dry, etc.)

Cons

  • Uninsulated
  • Expensive accessories

With more than 100 reviews on Trailspace and almost all of them receiving either a 4 or 5-star rating, I think that goes to show this product is pretty well liked, easily accessible and performs well.

There isn't a lot that I can add to the numerous reviews from people who have spent more time in their ENO DoubleNest than I have. You can find tons of photos of the hammock set up and even more photos of people's feet from inside the hammock, so I won't bother you with another one of those photos. (You don't want to see my feet anyways.) Instead, I will first share some photos of the hammock in the stuff sack/pocket so you can get a visual idea of how much space this hammock will take up in your pack. Near the bottom, I will provide a review.

Note: I have fairly large hands, but not gorilla hands or anything like that. 


IMG_0953.jpg

When packed down, the buckle tightens to compress the pouch and keeps it well compressed. The cinch cord simply tightens the pouch closed so the hammock doesn't fall out. 


ENO did a great job designing the stuff sack to be an attached pocket when the hammock is fully opened. This means you cannot lose the stuff sack, which is great news for someone like me. 

While the hammock itself packs down to a size slightly larger than a softball, it is important to remember that this is only the hammock. At the very least, you'll also need to bring along a suspension system of some sort (see ENO SlapStraps in the photo above), and many choose to bring along a rain fly or tarp, as well as bug netting. ENO manufactures all these accessories and more to fit the DoubleNest, although my experience with the accessories is limited to the SlapStraps. 

Okay, enough with the packability and compressibility of the hammock, let's get on with the review. 

CONDITIONS/USE: I purchased my ENO DoubleNest in 2007 and have used it on and off since then. For a couple years in college I had it strung up in my dorm room (pop out the ceiling tiles and string it to the exposed I-beams) and slept in it overnight at least once or twice a week. I and many others (not at the same time) took countless "study break" naps in it as well.

I've also taken it on a few multi-day trips to sleep in when the weather is nice, numerous day-hikes in order to have the option to kick up my feet mid-hike and many other situations/places. It's impossible for me to guess how many nights or hours this hammock has been slept in, but the number is A LOT and the hammock is still in great shape. 

SETUP AND EASE OF USE: If you couldn't tell from the previous paragraph, this hammock is versatile. It is easy to use in a variety of settings, and part of that is because of its ease to set up. As with any shelter, practicing a few times before you need it in the backcountry is a good idea.

I purchased the ENO SlapStraps to go with this hammock, mostly because I have always been terrible at remembering which knots to tie in which circumstance. The SlapStraps cut out all that confusion for me and make the set-up of this hammock a breeze (SlapStraps review is forthcoming). 

The hammock is made from lightweight parachute material, so it dries quickly and is breathable. That breathability can cause some issues if you don't have some sort of insulation underneath you on a chilly night.

While I still enjoy sleeping in a tent, the ENO DoubleNest has been a welcomed piece of gear that allows me the opportunity to have a comfortable night's sleep or quick rest without taking along a much bulkier tent.

As I state above, many other Trailspace members have thoroughly reviewed this hammock and have likely spent more time in it than I have. I encourage you to read a number of those reviews as well. Thanks for reading. 

UPDATE (29July2014): I failed to mention about the "doubleness" of the ENO DoubleNest. Yes, it is large enough and sturdy enough to fit two people (capacity being 400 lbs. or 181 kilos). I have slept in it with my wife (both of us being slightly tall and mostly lean) and we can fall asleep and stay asleep just fine, although it is very tight with not much room for movement or readjusting positions. As mentioned in the comments of this review and from what I've heard from many others, many couples have a hard time sleeping in this together. A hammock is sort of like a waterbed in that when one person moves, everything moves.

Thanks Daniel and Goose. While I recognize that there are arguably better hammocks being made, and I often long for owning a Warbonnet Blackbird or a Hennessy Expedition Asym, I haven't had any reason not to like my ENO so far. 7 years so far and it's still doing what I need it to.

Nice review, Kiwi! I have one of these, also. My husband and I tried to sleep together in it twice and both ended in very rough nights of sleep! It is definitely suitable for two people for a short duration, though.

Thanks for the comment, Ashleigh. I updated the review thanks to your comment. While my wife and I have slept peacefully in it a handful of times (both naps and overnight), I'm led to believe we are in the minority on this one. I've heard from many others who share the same insights as you when it comes to sleeping in it together.

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: I believe somewhere between $60-$80?

Summary

I own the Eagles Nest Outfitters DoubleNest (and use w/ the ENO SlapStrap Pro) and love it! Light to carry and easy to throw in a backpack for camping or festivals. Every time I string it up my friends want to try it out. Easy to stretch out in or share (cozily) with another person.

Pros

  • Can withstand a lot of weight
  • Light to carry
  • Dries quickly
  • You have a hammock!

Cons

  • It doesn't keep you warm if it is cold out, but ENO sells insulation options for colder weather.

You really can't beat an ENO hammock. I've owned and tried out a few different brands and this one beats all of them hands down. After taking a nap in a DoubleNest at Electric Forest 2011, I was sold, and bought mine on the spot. Since then it's been to several festivals and camping excursions and the thing still looks like new.  

Easy to spot clean or wash with cold water, and air dries quickly. I don't recommend leaving it up outside 24/7 where it will be exposed to the elements, but since it's so easy to string up and take down w/ the ENO SlapStrap Pros, that's not a problem either. It packs up nicely into the attached stuff sack and is lightweight to carry.  

I've also never fallen or had this hammock slip. The DoubleNest is pretty hard to fall out of, but somehow easy to get into.

Have recommended to several friends and have had some quality naps. Would buy another but I don't see this one dying any time soon!

The DoubleNest hammock is a very versatile hammock…

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $60

Summary

The DoubleNest hammock is a very versatile hammock that can go anywhere on one or two stable objects that are about 12 feet apart. I like it because you can hang it on two trees, one strong branch, or even some rocks if that is what you find.

I would recommend it to anyone that wants to fit more than one person in their hammock for camping or just simply hanging out.

Pros

  • Easy setup/take down
  • Very comfortable
  • Breathable, not too hot in the summer

Cons

  • You sit really close to the person if there are two of you
  • You have to put the straps far apart because if not, it will feel like you are folding yourself and that is not as comfortable.

The ENO DoubleNest hammock is an excellent hammock that is very versatile and fun to use outdoors.

The hammock is easy to set up. I personally have the Atlas straps and they work great! I recommend having your trees or whatever you are using to be at least 12 feet apart. One of the first times I used my hammock, the trees were probably about 8 feet apart but I felt like I was being folded in half. I like using the Atlas straps because they have many loops where you can hook your hammock at whatever distance you need. 

Breaking down is also quick for when you decide to move. I simply unhook my hammock and clip the two carabiners together. I then fold it in half twice and stuff it into the bag that comes with it. Because the nylon is so thin (but still duable) you don't have to worry about trying to fit it back in the back because it compresses back down easily. 

If your sitting in the hammock it will just rock slightly in the wind. I use a camping-type rope to hang a tarp above me when it rains. That seems to work good but I hope to get an ENO rain tarp soon. 

Ventilation in the hammock is good. The material is thin enough where air can move through it and cool you off. Of course you still might get sweaty sleeping at night if it is really humid and hot.

They say that the DoubleNest is built for two, but I would say two small people, and if you are sleeping with someone in this hammock make sure you know them reaaalllyy well because you are going to be mighty close together, although in the winter the extra body heat might be beneficial. 

The best features of this product is the durability and ease of setting up and taking it down. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to get into hammock camping or just hanging out with people.

Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $70

Summary

If you are looking for a simple lightweight alternative to your tent then this hammock might be just the thing for you. Overall the price and performance offered by this hammock is unrivaled by anything I have ever slept in.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Compact
  • Quick setup/teardown
  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Cold
  • Restrictive
  • Expensive accessories


2012-05-04-23-26-59.jpg
The Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO) Double Nest is extremely simple to set up and the entire process takes about 2-3 minutes. The key to hanging the ENO is finding the right trees. The straps that are used to hang the ENO are long enough to extend about 6 feet on each side, but the further apart the trees are the more sag you hammock will have. Once I have found two decent trees and setup my ENO I usually spend about 5 minutes laying in it allowing the material to stretch before I get up and tighten the straps. This helps to get rid of some of the sag in the hammock. 

Once you are in the hammock it is a very comfortable night's rest. If you choose to sleep in a sleeping bag it can get pretty restrictive. I have used a quilt and much prefer that option. The first few nights in a hammock can be a little awkward, but once you get past the idea of dangling all night it is great. 

The Double Nest is very compact and once in its bag it is about the size of a grapefruit. The straps to hang the hammock are sold separately and won't take up much room in your bag either.

There are many different accessories that you might want to consider before purchasing a hammock. A rain tarp is a must if you will be using the hammock for anything besides laying in the backyard. The tarp from ENO costs about an extra $70. If you plan on camping on a cold night (anything below about 35 degrees F) you will more than likely want a under quilt (work a little better than sleeping pads for hammocks). These can be really expensive ($200-400) depending on how cold you plan on it getting.

If you will be backpacking and won't have a base camp you may consider the underbelly sling (a mini hammock that hangs under yours to put gear in). These help to keep you gear off of the ground and only cost about $25. The most important accessory, at-least in southern Mississippi, is the bug net. It costs about an extra $50 and fits right around the hammock with a zipper to let you in and out.

If you don't want to add the weight or cost of a under quilt, you can run the hammock through your sleeping bag and it should work. This way you dont loose insulation out your back.

Comfortable, durable, and ridiculously easy to set…

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars

Price Paid: $65

Summary

Comfortable, durable, and ridiculously easy to set up and pack, the ENO DoubleNest is perfect for any sort of outdoor relaxation, from camping trips in the forest to afternoon naps in the backyard.

Pros

  • Holds a lot of weight
  • Easily portable
  • Easy to clean
  • Durable

Cons

  • Isn't wind or waterproof
  • Straps are required but sold seperately

One of my favorite things about my ENO DoubleNest is how easy it is to set up. Anywhere there are trees, posts, or any sort of sturdy support — a friend of mine even hung his between his truck hitch and a sapling — it takes only a minute or two to wrap your straps around your supports and hang your DoubleNest. 

I use SlapStraps, but SlapStrap Pro and Atlas Straps are available as well; keep in mind that they are sold separately. The straps are made of nylon and will not damage trees, which is good to know in case any park rangers may come by and give you the stank eye.

The DoubleNest itself comes with two carabiners attached to the both ends of the hammock to hook through the loops in your straps; they formerly came with steel biners, but the one I bought came with the newer aluminum wiregate biners, which are much smaller and lighter.

When you are done using your DoubleNest, simply fold it up or, for those of you like me who are a little more impatient, wad it up and slip it back into the small 4" x 5" drawstring sack that comes attached to the hammock. I found that it's a lot easier to pack when I allow the two ends with the biners to poke out of the top of the sack. Altogether the DoubleNest weighs 20 oz; I'm not sure if that includes the carabiners, but either way it's not a pain to carry around.

Another favorite thing about my DoubleNest is that it can easily hold my 270 lb fat butt. Together the straps hold 400 lbs, while the DoubleNest holds another 400 lbs, enabling the whole setup to hold a whopping 800 lbs.

Although ENO does offer a smaller sized and (slightly) smaller priced SingleNest, after trying it once I prefer the DoubleNest because of the extra room. The DoubleNest offers 9'4" by 6'2" of space, which is ideal for sharing with a girlfriend—or whoever it may be in your case—or cocooning yourself in the extra fabric, which can be handy for warding away pesky bugs, shading yourself from the sun, and pretending to be a caterpillar.

The fabric is made of nylon, which allows plenty of ventilation but doesn't do much to block the wind or rain. If you're spending the night in your DoubleNest, have a blanket and a tarp or rain fly on hand (ENO does offer insect nets and rain flies specifically made for hammocks).

The nylon is also extremely durable, as long as you are sensible and don't take anything sharp in the hammock with you. Typically I make sure I'm clean and have my shoes off before using my DoubleNest, and so far I have never needed to wash it, but it can be machine or hand washed with cold water and soft detergent and hung to dry. Be sure it isn't in the sun for too long so that your DoubleNests' beautiful colors don't fade.

Overall, I am very pleased with my DoubleNest. I have had it for about a year now, and it still holds up just as good as when I first purchased it. I've taken it on all kinds of adventures and had many good times relaxing beneath the trees in it.

recommend the ENO DoubleNest to anybody who loves to go hiking, traveling, or just likes to lie down outside without worrying about ticks crawling all over them.

Summary

Great for those backyard relaxers or serious campers, the ENO DoubleNest is a comfortable hammock that fills a variety of needs. This hammock is recommended for all ages and skill levels. Grab one and start swinging!

Pros

  • Durable
  • Breathable fabric
  • Dries quickly

The Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO) DoubleNest hammock was my first hammock ever, and boy, did I choose right! This hammock is spacious, comfortable, and light in the backpack.

I first bought this hammock a year ago to string up outside my house, but it's so compact and versatile, I take it with me almost everywhere. I have not bridged the gap to camping with it, but I feel that that is something that is coming really soon. 

This hammock, for basic use, is almost fool-proof in its setup. Grab a pair of slap-straps (sold separately) and wrap them around a tree/post/deck pole/anything really. Clip the hammock into the stitched loops with the provided carabiners and you're ready to rock. I always try and pitch my hammock under a tree or some shade, and bring a books for a lazy afternoon. 

The material the DoubleNest is made out of is wonderful. It's light and airy, and lets those summer breezes through. You don't get hot or feel stuffy in this bad boy. It also is pretty hard to stain (my dog loves to push her nose all over it, and so far I've not had any nose prints and any mud brushes off), and it washes really easy. Don't forget to move the metal bits (carabiners) before washing!

The DoubleNest is large and spacious, but it packs down really well. It's small and light when it's packed, and it's easy to carry anywhere. The stuff-sack is sewn right into the seam, so there's no having to keep track of a separate bag (it also makes a snazzy book holder if you take a break from reading). 

I would suggest this hammock to anyone. My first swing made me a fan, and I've gone back to buy other ENO products.

Summary

A very well designed hammock that is spacious, durable, and easy to set up. This lightweight hammock packs small and is perfect for backpacking or throwing in your pack for a day hike.

Pros

  • Exceptionally easy to set up.
  • Durability and weather resistance.
  • Overall comfort and space.
  • Price.
  • Available add-on features.

Cons

  • I thought really hard and could find none.

After quite a bit of time scoffing at the idea of owning a hammock, I decided to invest in an alternative to a single person tent. Research told me that I couldn't do any better than going with ENO, and the DoubleNest would suit my needs.

This highly rated hammock is durable, well designed, spacious, resistant to the elements, and extremely comfortable.

Another selling point for me was the available add-on components. The Atlas Straps make setup a breeze and very secure. The Bug Net and Rain Fly are essential here in the PNW and the Underquilt allows year round use with great warmth.

Over the past year I have owned my Eno DoubleNest, I have used it everywhere from backpacking the North Cascades to snowshoeing Whistler and lounging on the beaches of Mexico. Not one lack in performance, ever.

If I have one complaint, it would be that they don't come in a two pack. Whenever I set it up, I usually end up waiting my turn behind friends and family members.

Summary

Great quality and fully equipped to go, this is the best hammock I've had. Strong, available in a range of colours, and well up to the job of outdoor life, this is a robust and invaluable piece of my kit now.

Highly recommended and also check out the accessories that compliment it. A "Gotta have" piece of gear.

Pros

  • Strength
  • Quality
  • Slap Strap fastening webbing is quick and easy
  • Well designed, thought out, and practical
  • Lightweight
  • Tons of accessories, bug nets, tarps, etc

Cons

  • I use full carabiners instead of the wire gate ones provided. I'm heavy.
  • Nothing else on the downside for me.

As a bigger man, it gives me the confidence of being able to sustain my weight and the workmanship is tremendous.

Using the SlapStraps to put the hammock up, it's quick and easy to get going and very little time adjusting it too.  A few seconds in fact, so big benefits there, especially if you're making camp in poor weather.

Having a slot to thread my sleeping mat in, stops it thrashing about in the hammock and lets me sleep soundly and warmly. Much easier than having any kind of sleep mat sliding around underneath you in the night and losing body heat from the bottom of the hammock.

Having a packing pouch that stays attached to the hammock means a safe place to leave valuables while keeping them handy. Also it takes less time in breaking down your camp as you just fold the hammock into the pocket for storage.

While it's not designed to be waterproof, with a reasonable overhead shelter, it'll keep off the worst in terms of strong winds and heavy rain. I've used it in Snowdonia, North Wales at 50-60mph winds and near-horizontal with good sustainability, which is another benefit if you're on a longer trek as no-one wants wet sleeping gear.

I've had this one for six months now and used it in the wet, wind, ice, and even light snow which it worked well in. Now the summer's here. It's doing well there too, so I'm 110% satisfied with this product and have already added to the ENO gear I use. Their tarp is on the way over in a couple of weeks too, so will feedback after I've used that too.

Bottom line? I couldn't recommend this great piece of kit more. As a former 12-year soldier in the British Army, I know good kit when I see, feel and use it and this is good. Enjoy.

Summary

A lightweight and small pack hammock with plenty of space, perfect to take in a daysack for work or play. Additional space over the SingleNest so good for the bigger patron or someone who like their hammock to wrap around them.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Large

Cons

  • Price
  • Availabilty

I bought the ENO DoubleNest as I often have to spend nights on site or working odd hours in my job as a lighting technician. I used to use a sleeping bag and hope to find a soft spot on the floor, but this hammock has made a major impact on my sleeping pattern.

It's lighter and much more compact than a sleeping bag. Its smaller size means there's more space in my pack for other gear when normally I would have to strap my sleeping bag to the outside of the pack. Another major advantage of the hammock is a much improved quality of sleep. It's a lot easier to sleep in this soft and supporting hammock than it is to kip on a hard floor!

As I live in the UK, the two major downsides to this hammock are its price and its limited availability. The DoubleNest costs around $70 USD, but the only company that stocks it in the UK is selling it for the equivalent of around $120 USD! I ended up buying mine through a seller on Amazon, but judging by the fact it took a month to arrive, I'm presuming it came from the US anyway. So if you're looking for this in the UK, you'll either have to order well in advance or pay almost twice as much for it.

I ended up paying £40 for mine which is pretty much exactly the same as it costs direct from ENO so I feel it was good value for money. Especially seen as the construction is very good, it is a parachute style material which has a very high loading weight and the support ropes have so far not caused me any problems.

I've replaced the carabiners that came with it for rated screw gates simply for my own peace of mind but the original carabiners have earned their place in my spares box. As I mostly sling my DoubleNest from truss or scaffold bars, I've been using a 1" sling strap as opposed to the ENO SlapStraps or Atlas straps. This is mainly due to the straps being so expensive and even harder to get in the UK than the hammock itself but I will be looking to buy some straps for when I take this on a trek.

This is a superb product and was well worth the trouble of getting it to the UK. I'm able to get plenty of rest in the DoubleNest and it's even big enough to have company. As long as you really like the other person, a lot. It's gotten to the point that I even have friends who ask to borrow it for kips before shows, once they get past the oddity of seeing a hammock rigged underneath a seating rake. Luckily, Techies are known for being a bit odd, especially the ones who like the outdoors as well!

Absolutely worth buying. Brilliant hammock.

Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars

Summary

Durable, versatile, functional, comfortable. Think of it as the "Swiss Army Knife" of hammocks.

Pros

  • Light weight
  • Large size
  • Comfortable
  • Easy setup
  • Durable
  • One of the highest weight ratings
  • Modular concept
  • Packs down very small

Cons

  • Modular concept
  • "Old School" design

My first ENO hammock was a SingleNest, I quickly exchanged it for a DoubleNest. The extra width of the DoubleNest makes it much more comfortable when sitting in it sideways, as it is able to support you from your legs to your head. The SingleNest was not quite wide enough to support the back of my head when I sat in it sideways (I'm 6' tall). 

For as large/roomy as the DoubleNest is, it is very lightweight and packs down small. Of all the hammocks that are viable options for backpacking (as a replacement for carrying a tent), the ENO hammocks have one of the highest weight ratings of 400 pounds. In other words, they are built "bombproof" tough in addition to being light/small to carry in your pack. 

The ENO hammocks are modern versions of an "old school" hammock design in that they are not intentionally designed to have you laying on a diagonal. However, the generous size of the DoubleNest allows you to lay on it just about any way you want. (Laying on a slight diagonal causes the body to lay flatter.) This means the DoubleNest is a hammock many people will be able to find a comfortable position to sleep in. 

I highly recommend the ENO Atlas Straps, as they do not stretch like so many other hammock suspension systems do...no middle of the night re-tensioning of the system to compensate for stretch/sag.

Setup of most hammocks is quick and easy, and the ENO hammocks are no exception. Once you have familiarized yourself with setting one up, it only takes a few minutes to set up or tear down. The modular concept of the ENO hammock systems does mean they can take a few minutes longer to set up than all-in-one hammock systems like the Hennessy.

On the topic of the ENO's modular concept, it is both an advantage and a disadvantage. With the addition of an ENO Guardian Bug Net and an ENO Fly, you have a dry and bug-free shelter. Add in an ENO Underbelly Gear Sling and you've got a place for all you gear (off the ground). 

This highly modular concept allows you to tailor-build your own ideal shelter system to your exact needs/desires at that time. The downside is a slightly longer setup time than an all-in-one system, slightly more weight for some of the items (bug net), and risk of weighing yourself down with an excess of extras. And each additional item, of course, adds to the total cost of the system.

While a Hennessy or Warbonnet hammock may be more ideally suited for backpacking, the ENO DoubleNest is an exceptionally versatile hammock. From afternoon napping in the backyard to nights in the wilderness, it works well. 

Just keep in mind that a hammock, all hammocks, are just suspended tent floors. Sleeping pads are not simply padding between your body and rocky/uneven ground. They are the insulation between you and the cold ground. And when you elevate your tent floor and turn it into a hammock, you will still need some type of insulation in-between your body and the night air. The highly compressible insulation of a sleeping bag will have little R-Value where your body weight presses it flat against the hammock.

But while many feel that a hammock is, at best, a 3-season shelter system...with the right accessories it can be an exceptional cold weather sleep system as well. A hammock allows you to add layers of high loft/light weight insulation to the outside/underside of it (one of the unique advantages of being a "suspended tent floor"), making it possible for a hammock shelter system to actually keep you warmer than a tent for less weight. 

About the only thing a hammock cannot be equipped to deal with is gale-force (or greater) winds. One other caution when using a hammock is to be mindful of dead-falls/widow-makers...dead branches that could easily become dislodged and fall on you during the night.

In conclusion, while I do intend to acquire a more dedicated backpacking hammock system (yeah, I'm a gear-head) the ENO DoubleNest will always be a staple in my hammock collection...it's just too versatile, durable, and comfortable.

Summary

One of the best things that's ever been given to me! I love the packability of these hammocks and how versatile they are!

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Packable
  • Comfortable
  • Easy to set up
  • Easy to pack up

Cons

  • No insulation

I absolutely LOVE my DoubleNest! I seriously take it on every trip I go on whether it's to the beach, to a conference, camping, or any other trip just in case I have the opportunity to ENO for a while (or all night). These things pack up pretty small and can go about anywhere with you. All you need is two sturdy hanging points (and straps) and you're good to go. 

As far as camping goes, I rarely sleep in a tent anymore. If at all possible, I'm going to be sleeping in my ENO. 

This hammock is super quick and easy to set up and has a built-in stuff sack that is easy to pack the hammock back into. 

The construction of the DoubleNest is very durable. It's made out of parachute material and the stitching is great. It can rub holes in it if you set it up where it is touching things below it (such as sticks, plants, rocks). 

I've had my DoubleNest since 2007 (I think, at least close to that long) and it is still going strong and still as comfortable as when I first got it.

Summary

Great hammock, very comfortable.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Packs down small
  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Carabiners it came with too heavy

I take my ENO DoubleNest hammock on everything from multiday trips to day hikes. Only thing stopping me from giving it 5 stars is the carabiners that the hammock comes with. Quite heavy and kind of sharp. I would recommend replacing them right away.

Easy to set up. I use a set of ENO SlapStrap Pro with mine. The size of the DoubleNest makes it very easy to sleep on a diagonal making it comfortable to even sleep on my side. While the DoubleNest is big enough for 2 people, I wouldn't recommend trying to sleep overnight with 2 people in it unless you really, really, really like them.

Packs down quite small, about half the size of a 2 liter bottle. Great ventilation in the summer time. I have not used it in the fall or winter so I can't comment on it in colder conditions. If you interested in trying hammock camping, or just looking for a comfy place to hang out at the cabin I would recommend the DoubleNest.

Hey, Sage! Regarding suspension, you can really cut weight with Whoopie Slings or Dutch Buckles. http://dutchwaregear.com/hammock-stuff/ I use Whoopies. My buddy uses the buckles. Whoopies are lighter, buckles seem easier to set up.

Summary

Perfect ultralight alternative to a tent!

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Easy to set up
  • Ultralight and small when packed away

Cons

  • Slap straps (sold separately) are difficult to take down when wet

I never thought I would turn to hammocks until I borrowed a friend's on an overnight trip in the Appalachians.  It is a small, super lightweight alternative to hauling around a tent and stakes. I prefer the DoubleNest over the SingleNest, not for fitting more than one person in the hammock, but because you can flip the extra material over you during the night to keep out bugs, light, or just as an added layer to keep warm (it is a similar material to the Cocoon sleeping bag liners). 

These hammocks are super easy to set up, however the Slap Straps (sold separately) can be difficult to take down if it has rained (the cord when wet and pulled tight from body weight can be hard to untie).  After not being amused by the Slap Straps, I started using some longer nylon climbing Runners by just slip knotting them around the trees and clipping the carabiners to those and those work perfectly, with no problem when rain hits them.

The one other alteration I made to this set up was the carabiners.  While the ones that come with the hammock are perfectly strong, they are pretty heavy (if you are looking to shave off a few more ounces) and the clip part is kind of abrasive, so they can start to wear on cords or the hammock when hooking it up.  I switched to wiregate climbing carabiners, so they are strong enough to hold body weight, they are incredibly lightweight, and they are not abrasive to any fabric. 

Cost wise, my personal setup versus buying the ENO Slap Straps is about $10 or $15 more, but overall, the whole setup is still much less than a tent, and definitely worth every penny!  

I have been able to use my hammock in the Southern US during the summer, and stayed quite cool, and also in the Northern Cascades in late October, and have been able to keep warm.  It does take a little getting used to sleeping in that position as opposed to on the ground, but I have never been uncomfortable while using it!

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars

I used it for the first time on a backpacking trip in mid September of this year. It was unbelievably comfortable. The temperature at night dropped considerably, and even with a sleeping pad, I got very cold in my underrated sleeping bag. 

My backside was fine, but I was very cold everywhere else.  I simply lined it with a space blanket (the good kind, about $14 at REI), and I was fine. 

I have never slept as well on the ground as I did in my hammock, once I got warm. From now on, I'm going with a hammock. I also have the Bug Net, and the Dry Fly rain tarp. 

All total, it doesn't seem to save anything in weight, or packing size, over a tent.  But, the comfort level is no comparison.

  • Good quality
  • You can buy many accessories for this hammock
  • Holds 400! Pounds

Cons

  • Sometimes little things like rocks can puncture the hammock

I got this hammock for myself about a year ago. It's one of the best things I have ever bought. I use it in my backyard to relax. I even used I-hooks to hang it in my room. I sleep in it a few nights a week.

The best part of this hammock is where you can use it. Last week I took in on a camping trip up to the top of a mountain. The ridge was covered in rocks making tents unusable. I tossed this little thing into my back pack(with some ENO Atlas straps) and hung it up for the night. It felt so good knowing I was off the ground and away from all the snakes and bugs.

Overall I love this hammock, I've already recommended some people to it. That night on that ridge all 8 of us had our ENO hammocks to sleep in.

The ENO DoubleNest hammock is amazing. I take it everywhere with me and hang it whenever I can since it's perfect to rest, take a nap, or even sleep a whole night in it.

I take my hammock to my regattas and it is up all day and I'm in it as long as I can. Whenever I'm not racing I'm in my hammock.

Summary

This product is ridiculously comfortable and the convenience, packability, and easy setup makes it a must whether you are an advanced packer or just the backyard enthusiast.

Pros

  • Packs up in very small package
  • Lightweight and very sturdy
  • Quick and easy setup
  • Variety of colors
  • Can be used in a multitude of environments
  • Several useful attachments
  • Convenient carry pouches

Cons

  • Have to buy necessary parts separately.

The ENO DoubleNest is a must if you are out on the trail or watching the sun set in your backyard. It is extremely durable and lightweight, making it simple to pack up and toss in your pack or just carry with you. The DoubleNest is perfect for "the two of you" or extra roomy for the soloist.

It secures quickly and easily to any stable structure that you can find to attach the straps, just in case you find somewhere other than the trees to set up camp (as if?!). Perfect comfort for simple relaxation or a peaceful nights sleep in the woods or on the beach.

The design of the straps allow you to set up as high or low to the ground as you choose. You can even make your nest next to the ones already in the trees!

The DoubleNest makes a perfect gift for the outdoor enthusiast and is even perfect for the youngsters. Once they get through their first setup, it's just like riding a bike. They can set up and take down in a matter of minutes but reap the benefits for hours to come.

The only downfall to this product is that at most retailers you must purchase the necessary basic use items individually. It can be a little pricey by the time you get all the stuff you want. I borrowed to test and immediately fell in love!

Haven't bought one yet because, well, I have other financial priorities first. But I'm saving up and when the time is right, I will be hoping to purchase the whole grand package for many many years of enjoyment. Go get one. Or go get another one and give it to me!

Summary

I really love using my hammock when I want to get away and out into nature. It's perfect for getting away from this busy world and just relaxing. When you get into your ENO DoubleNest the outside world will fade away and it will just be you and your hammock.

Pros

  • Very comfortable
  • Very durable
  • Extremely versatile
  • Quick setup/tear-down

The ENO DoubleNest hammock is a great product and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good way to relax. It literally takes less than 3 minutes for you to set up and begin your relaxing afternoon.

The DoubleNest offers plenty of room for one or even two to comfortably enjoy the beautiful scenery and lie down for a quick nap. Once you have gotten your fill of relaxation it is extremely simple to pack up and store into its built-in storage sack.

My hammock has held its ground through my constant use at my community forest, parks, on campus, and even in my own backyard. If you've got some imagination you'll be surprised at some of the places where you can set up your ENO hammock.

I backpacked the Appalachian Trail in Virginia and it is much lighter and takes up less space than a tent. My sleeping bag fit in it perfectly. Very nicely built.

Summary

It is portable and easy to store because of its small back. The straps make it easy to set up the hammock just about anywhere; outdoors, inside, in-between two jeeps... It has plenty of room to be comfortable and enjoy a good book.

Pros

  • Easy to set up
  • Comfortable
  • Portable
  • Different colors

Cons

  • Hard to clean

I received my ENO DoubleNest hammock as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago. I was not able to use it until the following summer. When I was finally able to use it, the straps made it easy to set up and take down.

The hammock itself was tucked away in its own bag, which I love because it is small and portable. The hammock itself is very durable and can help protect you from the wind. I have used a friend's ENO tarp and it did amazing when it started to rain. I was dry and I stayed fairly warm. When it is hot, it has helped to keep me cool from the sun.

My DoubleNest hammock is spacious enough to be able to move with ease inside the hammock. It is very comfortable and you can set it up to be taut or loose.

I love that I can choose different color variations; solid, double color, design... I had always wanted a hammock and now I have one and I always keep it in my car so I can set it up whenever I want. As I said before, it is packed away in a small, portable bag. It can fit well under a car seat or even in a suitcase or purse. It is not that heavy so it makes it so much easier to set up. 

I would recommend this product to my family and friends and whoever was interested in getting a hammock. Whether they want to set it up in their backyard or use it when going camping, it is durable and can be used for whatever you need.

Ive had my hammock for years and never really reviewed it anywhere. I've used this thing at least monthly for 8 or 9 years.

I have a grand appreciation for any hammock that can take the kind of abuse that a 6'3" 315-lb man can give.  Looks a little ratty and faded but consistently manages to keep my large behind in the air one night at a time.

First of all I'd like to start off by saying that this is a must buy. I am 6'4'' and I fit comfortably in this hammock. With the Atlas Straps it is super fast and easy to set up the hammock almost anywhere! It is durable, super lightweight, and all around sleek looking.

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to set up

Cons

  • I don't have enough of these!

Easy to setup with the available straps you can purchase separately. Very strong for such a lightweight hammock. You can hang this slightly in the water and you will be fine, very durable.

It has a pouch sewn into it so it folds into itself into a very small pouch and does not take up a lot of room at all.

I have used my DoubleNest Hammock daily for a few months now.

I really love the ENO I have. It is very comfortable and portable.

Pros

  • Portable
  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Can be hard to get in and out

I love the ENO I have. It is a DoubleNest, so it can fit two people, but usually I just use it for one person, and that's fine. I love how it comes in a little bag. That makes it really easy to transport and put it away when you're done.

It comes with straps to hang it up from trees. We also have a mosquito net we bought, but I don't use that much because it's more convenient to just set up the hammock and lie down.

It's pretty durable. I haven't had any problems with wear and tear thus far.

Sometimes it can be a little hard to get in and out, but that's usually due to the ground being uneven or the hammock being put up pretty high. I think it's comfortable enough that I will sleep in it one night, as long as it is warm enough outside.

Summary

It's a compact rugged outdoor hammock meant for portability and it's fantastic! Whether I'm going backpacking or just setting it up after a bike ride the DoubleNest goes with me anywhere for instant relaxation.

Pros

  • Light
  • Durable
  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Does not come with string to instantly hang up hammock; not really a con but should be aware of that.

Have been looking for a hammock for backpacking use for a long time and the DoubleNest is by far the best! It is a very light, attractive, durable hammock that keeps you cool.

It is very durable for anything you do outdoors. I have taken it backpacking, hiking, camping, biking, kayaking, and pretty much anything else you can imagine. Even if you're not the outdoorsy type the DoubleNest is great for keeping in the car just in case you break down or go to the park and realized you forgot your picnic chairs.

The last thing is that there are many options to add on to your hammock if need be, like mosquito nets, rain tarps, and much much more.

I strongly recommend this hammock. It is easy if you know simple knots with paracord or if you just get the Eagles Outfitters Slap Straps. Final word, best investment ever!

Summary

I take my DoubleNest on every vacation I go on, and love using it as an excuse to go somewhere new to 'hang out.' I'll even take it to school for a bit of relaxation between classes. It's funny, ever since I've been on that hammock life, I haven't quite looked at trees the same.

So the details, this nylon ripstop hammock supports up to 400 lbs, has room for two (always good to have a cuddle buddy...especially overnight camping), and sets up within two minutes. Great for catching a nap, enjoying the sunset, soaking in the nature vibes, getting strangers asking you questions about that cool hammock you're chillin in.

Enjoy and Hammock On!

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Quick setup
  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Sleeping overnight can be really cold sometimes (good sleeping bag is a must)

Setup: Find two trees about 8-16 ft apart and secure the straps, connect the carabiners on both ends of the hammock, and you're good to go.

Weather: Having a rainfly or tarp is highly recommended if there is a chance of rain (really it's mandatory). The hammock is not designed for warmth so keep that in mind when sleeping overnight. Especially on your back, when the wind picks up you'll feel it. Trust me.

Room & Storage: Room for two people, and there's a handy storage pouch on the side of the hammock.

Packability: AMAZING! Lightweight, condenses into a small softball sized volume, thanks to compression strap built in. Highly prefer hammocking to a tent.

Ease of Use: Very easy, it will set up easily in under 5 minutes, and take down in the same. Expect to get faster as you own it for a while.

Durability: Very durable, my first hammock lasted for years until I gave it to a friend for an upgrade. When my new hammock broke unfortunately (trying to chill with three grown people..really pushing the weight limit), ENO was awesome and customer service let me pick any color I wanted and had a new DoubleNest to me within two weeks :)

Summary

The ENO DoubleNest is comfortable, easy to set up, and plenty wide enough for an extremely restful sleep.

Pros

  • Easy to set up
  • Comfortable
  • Compact

Cons

  • Could be a little longer

I have used my ENO DoubleNest for four years now and have loved every minute of it. I used to be a ground sleeper — sleeping in tents — but would wake up with a sore back or just wouldn't sleep well.

Since I purchased my hammock, I haven't had a bad night's sleep. I wake up refreshed every time I sleep in it.

It is easier to set up and take down than a tent. It packs down small and is fairly light. There are more expensive hammocks on the market, but, for the money, the ENO is constructed very well and has held up to four years of backpacking and camping trips.

I have enjoyed my ENO DoubleNest very much and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone considering a hammock purchase.

Summary

I love this hammock because it's light and versatile. I have slept in it on many nights, in many different environments!

This product is best for backpacking trips, as you can clip it to the backpack and it adds very little weight to your pack. Yes, I would recommend it!

Pros

  • Light
  • Breathable
  • Versatile
  • Relatively easy to set up

Cons

  • Gets dirty easily
  • Expensive
  • Requires ENO straps for best use
  • No insulation

The hammock is as sturdy as the trees you attach it to! It can be hung either tight or loose, depending on user's preference. One downside to the hammock is that it is so breathable that it can get quite cold at night, so a sleeping bag is needed for insulation.  

If the hammock ever gets wet, it does dry quickly, so moisture is not an issue. I have washed my hammock (sans carabiner clips) in my personal washing machine on several occasions to clean out dirt, tree sap, etc; and then simply clipped it up outside to let it air dry. Works great!

Stuffing the hammock back into the bag is a bit of a hassle, but it does not have to be perfect, just takes some patience. The only thing I really do not like about my hammock (that has been improved in more recent versions) is my carabiners. They are clunky, hard to use, and catch on the seatbelt material of my straps - the new ones however, are light and simple. Have to invest in some of those!

A "con" I listed was that it requires ENO straps for use. This added gear increases the price of a hammock by a good $20 each, which can be frustrating.

I have had the same hammock for three years now and have slept outside peacefully many nights. I have hiked with it, biked with it, and driven with it. I take it to cookouts so I have a place to sit with my meal or my guitar. I have recommended (and will recommend) it to any and all! I love this hammock!!!

We use Atlas Straps so that adjusting it to her height is a snap. They roughhouse in the hammocks and they hold up great. No snags or signs of wear at all.

Pros

  • Durable
  • Many colors to choose from
  • Packable

Cons

  • Can't think of any

Our family keeps hammocks in the car because we never know when an excellent hammocking opportunity will arise. We take them to parks and "swing" with them. They take a lot of abuse from the kids and don't show any wear at all. I have both Single and DoubleNests and the kid that ends up with the single always wishes she has the bigger one.

It is so much nicer to sprawl out in the larger one. Sleeping on the diagonal is easier on the DoubleNest. It is cozy and feels like a space of my own. I just don't get that with the SingleNest. You won't go wrong getting a DoubleNest. The only dilemma is the color.

Summary

Love it. Setup is quick and easy, especially with the additional add-on daisy chain straps. Breakdown is equally fast. The hammock is stable and comfortable for one or two. I had no problem sleeping in this either.

Pros

  • Easy setup
  • Built-in stuff sack
  • Strong material

Cons

  • Expensive
  • Full setup is heavy
  • Not for cold weather use

This product is an excellent addition for your recreational outings. You can use just the hammock and additional daisy chain straps or go full out for all weather / bug protection with the bug net and overhead rainfly. 

The product is extremely comfortable for one or two and setup / breakdown is quick and easy. The material is sleek and strong. The hammock pocket is ingenious in that it doubles as a stuff sack that I can't lose.

Given the availability and price of super light tents the full hammock setup is not an appropriate replacement as the cost and weight exceed comparable tents on the market. However, your friends will be jealous in sleeping on the ground while you'll rest suspended in sheer comfort.

Adding a foam pad can be problematic as it tends to shift. This product is also not good for overnight camping in cold climates.

Otherwise this is the perfect compliment for a day hike, warm weather overnight, and car camping application.

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars

Price Paid: $59 three years ago

Summary

Best sleeping system ever. Best camp lounge chair ever. Lightweight, compact, and perfect for kayaking, biking, or backpacking.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Roomy
  • and so comfortable!

Cons

  • Need some extra gear for cooler weather
  • Doesn't include straps

Quick and easy setup and take-down. No more scouting for a flat spot to set up a tent. No more sleeping on the ground or trying to clear a comfortable place to lay. If you can find two trees 12 or so feet apart, you got yourself a camping spot.

The extra width allows you lie diagonally and sleep flatter. The light fabric holds up well, dries fast, and packs easily into an attached stuff sack which compresses to the size of a softball. You can also fit the straps in the same stuff sack with a little sacrifice in size.

Add a bug-net and a rain fly and you're good to go for everything but cold weather. For cold you need some extra gear and some of it can get pricey, unless you are good at improvising. There are some work-around ideas you can use including pads and space blankets. (I use a SingleNest slung under my DoubleNest to keep things from sliding around).

Summary

It's a quick and easy setup for a relaxing nap or a night out in the woods. Definitely spring for the Atlas Suspension System for minimal stretching of the webbing. It's a spectacular product with a durable, parachute material to keep you cool.

Pros

  • Keeps you cool when it's warm.
  • Easy pack up
  • Compact storage

I bought this product expecting a couple quick naps or reading sessions to come out of it, but I have slept many nights in this hammock and I have no complaints!

The parachute material keeps your body cool, so if it's a warm night all you need is a light blanket; on cooler nights I would recommend a thin quilt to lay beneath you in your hammock to keep the heat in.

The DoubleNest hammock is large enough for two, but I usually just keep it all to myself; it allows me to sleep on my side and lay diagonal in the hammock as well.

Overall, is it a wonderful investment for all and it will definitely make you want to be outdoors more. I can't wait to see where I can hang it in my dorm room!

Summary

This hammock is a great item for outdoor and indoor use. Very roomy for one and comfortable for two and is easily packed up and stored for later use.

Pros

  • Strong enough to hold two people
  • Very versatile
  • Easily transported

Cons

  • Gets hot in the summer
  • Straps for hanging sold separately

My ENO DoubleNest hammock is probably the best purchase I made with my first paycheck of the summer! I've already used it on many occasions near the creek in Montreat, N.C., and by the pool in LaGrange, Ga. I would highly recommend investing in an ENO hammock soon.

Summary

Best jack-of-all-trades hammock for all your outdoor activities.

Pros

  • Component type configuration, use what you need and leave the rest
  • High quality materials that are durable and last for years
  • Lots of fabric to allow laying diagonally and almost flat

Cons

  • A bit heavy for long backpacking trips

Years after a slight back injury I was unable to backpack due to sleeping on the hard ground that even sleeping pads could not make soft enough. I tried an ENO hammock and now I will sleep better in it than in my own bed. I was worried about falling out as I am a tosser when I sleep, but the hammock keeps you snug as a pea in a pod and I find I shift in my sleep far less.

The ENO DoubleNest is one of the largest of the all fabric hammocks you can buy. This large footprint allows you to lay diagonally which creates a more flat lay. My wife and I have owned and used frequently two DoubleNests for about four years now with little or no wear.

The hammock has a attached stuff sack that acts as a storage pocket while its up that also has a compression strap on it. And because it is modular and does not have the bug net, tarp, etc attached, you can use the ENO hammocks for various activities such as backyard, day hiking, etc. Add the Guardian Bug Net and a tarp (not included) and you have a full backpacking hammock. 

When I bought mine four years ago, ENO was using solid steel hooks that were very strong but also very heavy. Since then they have moved to much lighter carabiners that are just as strong.

Cons

I use my DoubleNest quite often. It's great for a quick nap in the backyard or an all weekend camping trip . Whether you go to festivals, the beach, or the alps you can find a picturesque view and you have an instant seat for two, and with all the add-ons that are offered it makes me just want to get rid of my apartment.

Greatest hammock I've owned, extremely easy to take anywhere, and setup is simple and quick. Comfortable, breathable material and perfect for couples.

Pros

  • Easy to carry
  • Super light weight
  • Quick setup
  • Extra comfortable material
  • Plenty of room
  • Great for couples

Cons

  • Doesn't come with straps
  • Everyone else wants to use it

There's nothing more fun than hanging in a hammock with your significant other, whether it be on your back porch or on top of a mountain secluded in the trees, and this hammock will make both great experiences.

With its compact pocket it folds up into, you can take it anywhere easily. Just throw it in your backpack along with a set of hammock straps and you're good to go. Setup couldn't be easier. All you need is two trees or two walls to hang it from before you can get to relaxing.

I take mine everywhere and have never been disappointed with it. Perfect hammock for me.

This is a great lightweight hammock for camping, hiking, or just bumming around the yard. The straps have lots of different lengths to be able to attach to different sized trees, stumps, etc.

Pros

Cons

The DoubleNest is a great hammock to take for hiking or camping. It is lightweight and very packable. One negative aspect is that the straps and the hammock pack into two seperate pouches. So they have the chance of being seperated. The material is smooth and easily cleanable.

Summary

This product is amazingly portable, comfortable, and easy to use. It's great for light weight trekking to just chilling in your yard. The DoubleNest is great for just one person as well as two.

Pros

  • Easy to set up
  • Lightweight
  • Comfy

Cons

  • Requires two higher points of contact
  • Sinks down a lot

This product gets a 4.5 out of 5 because it is one if my greatest purchases. The only reason it doesn't get a 5 is because sometimes I wish I could just set it up anywhere, but because it is a hammock that's hard to do. Also it's kind of ridiculous how you have to buy the straps separately.

Other than that, it is one of the greatest purchases. It's convenient, super comfortable, and fun for everyone. It's good for the serious hiker or the family relaxation place.

Summary

This is a wonderful hammock. I have always been a tent camper and have always had trouble sleeping no matter what pad I have. I received an ENO DoubleNest hammock for my birthday this year and spent three nights camping in the Blue Ridge Mountains soon afterwards. Without a doubt, they were the best three nights of camping I have ever had. The ENO is a very comfortable way to sleep and I will be an ENO camper for life.

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • DoubleNest is enough material for me (6'4")

Cons

  • Purchasing the ENO and the straps separately
  • Not having the tarp system

By comparison to tent camping:

Setup is so much easier than in a tent

The size is 1/5 the size of carrying a tent.

Stability I have been impressed with. Easily holds me and I am 6'4" and 240 lbs.

Seems to be fairly weather resistant. Have not tried the tarp, yet but I am sure it works great.

Ventilation is great. I try to set up near a creek when I can and even in the hottest Southern day I usually am plenty cool near water. I add a self-inflating pad and sleeping bag if I get cold. Perfect.

I use the pocket that the hammock rolls up in as a storage pocket. They also sell a Possum Pack that you should check out for carrying everything.

Pack-ability is as good as you can ask for. SO much easier than carrying any type of tent.

Ease of use: Self explanatory. Takes all of 5 minutes to set up.

All in all, I love the ENO and sure could use another one for my wife :)

It's easy to transport and super lightweight. I'm looking forward to taking it to Europe with me next semester when I study abroad. 

I have been able to set up my ENO with ease in multiple locations. I've used it on my college campus, in several national parks, and while hiking in the summer in the mountains of Maine.

Pros

I was the first of my friends to get an ENO. They all love it and want one of their own. I always spend my REI sale money on ENOs for my friends.

The most important thing to note though, is that the DoubleNest is twice as wide as the SingleNest, which makes for extremely comfortable sleeping, but may be heavier for the minimalist.

Summary

Great hammock. Lightweight and compact, which makes it perfect for carrying with you and setting up wherever you can find a pair of trees.

Pros

  • Strong
  • Light
  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Not exactly a comfy fit for two
  • Straps sold separately

So, the ENO DoubleNest is a pretty great hammock, at least that's what I've decided after a little over two years of use.

It's great for sitting with a friend, though I think it serves best as a roomier single person hammock. I've found that while two people do fit moderately comfortably in it, extended periods of time become uncomfortable very quickly, which makes me feel like trying to share your hammock while camping isn't really the best use. Nice for sitting outside with a friend, but that's about it.

However, as a single person hammock, it's fantastic. The extra space makes it great to stretch out diagonally for a flatter lay. Sometimes it feels like it kinda swallows you, but I don't mind too much.

Only complaint I have is that the straps are sold separately, though if you have a bit of paracord and can tie an overhand knot, you can definitely do without them.

If you want light, comfortable, easy, and durable this hammock is the best choice. I love sleeping in this hammock. It's called a DoubleNest for a reason — it does sleep two comfortably.

Pros

  • Durable
  • Light
  • Comfortable

Cons

  • If you can't find trees, it can be a tough night.

I love sleeping in this hammock. It's called a DoubleNest for a reason — it does sleep two comfortably. It's easy to set up and the straps are adjustable to fit any tree. Never had a problem with tearing or falling down.

It packs very small and light, perfect for any backpacking trip. I've taken this hammock in mountains in WA, CA, UT, OR, on countless backpacking trips and day hikes.

I suggest a tarp to go above if you're worried about weather, but I have always stayed dry in this hammock and never have issues with dew or condensation. I've also used this hammock at gatherings on the campus green space and concerts.

I haven't tested the weight limits of the hammock, but with two grown adults I don't feel like it is straining to hold us like much cheaper hammocks. There is a little pocket on the side which is useful for lamps or glasses and the length is much longer than a tall person to sleep comfortably.

It has lasted me 4 years now and I highly recommend it to my friends.

The Slap Straps sag by time you wake up but fixed it with the Atlas Straps. The Guardian Bug Net sets up easy but the Pro Fly rain guard took me two times before I didn't have to think of how to set it up with ease anymore.

Cons

  • Not the least expensive hammock
  • Shoulder pinch

ENO has spent the last few years refining their hammocking offerings and seem to have come up with a bunch of great products. Their DoubleNest while comfortable for two to lounge in is not very comfortable to actually share for a good night's sleep.

The fabric is soft, well finished, and breathable and comes in enough color choices to satisfy any camping fashionista. Plenty of room for my shoulders, although some larger campers may still endure shoulder pinch.

Setup is a breeze with the included carabiners and the hammock and carabiners can hold up to 450 pounds of weight. The highest weight rating I have seen.

Summary

This hammock is perfect, no matter what adventure you are going on. From backyard relaxing to hiking to festivals, this is a great product. It comfortably sleeps two people, and is extremely compact when folded up, making it ideal for traveling.

Pros

  • Durability
  • Expanded hammock size
  • Compact for easy travel

Cons

  • Straps sold seperately

I am easily able to set up this hammock in under three minutes. I purchased the Atlas Strap System for an extra 30 dollars, which has more connection points than the other strapping systems sold by ENO and allows for quick setup.

This product dries very quickly after getting wet due to its nylon construction. Sometimes it gets a little humid inside of the hammock, but this can be quickly remedied by opening the top. The size is good both open, and packed up for travel and will no doubt fit in a camping pack.

Overall this is a great product that I would recommend to anyone.

Summary

This is all the hammock that you'll ever need. It comfortably holds two people, but one person stretched out is superb.

I highly recommend this to anyone day-hiking, backpacking or even car-camping. It's at home in the backyard just as much as in the backcountry. Pair with a set of the Atlas Straps and you're set.

Pros

  • Ease of use
  • Lightweight and compact
  • Comfort

Cons

  • If hung too flat, it will taco on you...practice the hang and it's perfect.

Out of the bag, it takes about two minutes to be lying down. I paired my DoubleNest with a set of Atlas Straps and the pair is unbeatable. For optimal performance, the hammock should be allowed to drape considerably, reducing the likelihood that it will make a human taco of you. It also helps to lie diagonally if you're going solo. 

There couldn't be an easier way to make your bed in the wilderness. The DoubleNest is the only version that I have experience with, but it's perfect for me. If you're backpacking solo, the single may save some weight, but I honestly don't think this one would be bad.

I've just ordered the Guardian Bug Net, but I only expect great things.

Great for hiking or the backyard. The most comfortable hammock ever! Make sure you get the Atlas or Pro straps from ENO with this product. They make set up less than a minute.

The only drawback is anything can snag and make a small hole in the hammock. ENO makes a repair patch for this and I will be soon be review that as well. However it did take me a year to make a hole.

The DoubleNest hammock is easy to set up. I use the ENO SlapStrap system, easy as 1. find trees, 2. attach straps, 3. attach clips to desired height and sag. Less then a 2-minute setup and you're hanging!

Very easy to wash in the washing machine as well if it gets dirty. Overall I love this hammock. Now this love didn't come early on as this was my first hammock and took a while to learn the correct sag and how to effectively hang it to get the most comfort.

Most often used to relax in my backyard after a long day in the office.

Summary

I no longer tent camp when hiking! The ENO DoubleNest hammock paired with Dry Fly, Guardian Bug Net, and Slap Straps (sold separately or as one with the OneLink Sleep System Kit) are all I need to stay high and dry during summer rainy season in Florida.

Pros

  • Strong (holds up to 400 lbs)
  • Breathable, quick drying nylon
  • Attached stuffsack

Cons

  • Full set of items may weigh more than some backpacking tents

Lightweight, durable, easy and quick to set up. On hot nights being able to sleep in the breeze helps! Great product!

Always use tree safe straps when using a hammock.

The DoubleNest hammock pulls easily form the attached stuff sack (which doubles as storage pocket when in use). Setup takes minutes with a little practice. 

Lots of room for two! Will hold up to 400 lbs. Great for couples or even for the kids to hang out in the yard or when camping.

Lightweight — only 20 ounces! Stuffs into attached stuff sack only 4" x 5".

Easy to clean and maintain, fast drying.

Summary

Great hammock for a hang in backyard, cabin rental with family, or backpacking trip. It is a hammock that is large enough for husband and wife to chill in the afternoon, along with big enough to sleep on the bias to have a good night sleep.

Pros

  • Easy to hang
  • Good colors
  • Made in the Southeast

Cons

  • Wish straps came with it

I have had the SingleNest and DoubleNest. I enjoy both, but have more room in the DoubleNest.

Camped with Scouts several time using the full setup of hammock and tarp. Very comfortable sleep in Florida allowing for circulation underneath. Once you figure how to have the right hang with the tree huggers giving the right amount of tension, you will sleep and relax anytime.

Summary

For someone looking to get into hammock life, this is a great hammock. It's a bit short when compared to other hammocks used for camping. The extra width makes it much more comfortable, but the "double" can be a bit deceiving. You can fit two people if they are petite women.

Pros

  • Affordable
  • Good quality
  • Fun brand
  • Lots of color options
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Shorter than the average camping hammock

This hammock is great for the everyday lounger. If you are looking for a hammock to take to the park or bring along on your day hike to lounge around in, this is the hammock for you.

The hammocks packs into its built-in pouch, which makes setup and take down simple. The packed size is also great for throwing it in your backpack or keeping it in your trunk. You'll need to purchase straps separately for this, and ENO's Atlas Straps are the go-to preference for most people. Their cheaper brother, the SlapStrap, have a tendency to stretch out, especially for larger people.

The hammock comes with heavy steel carabiners that have sharp teeth that snag on the rope and straps. I'd recommend replacing these with lightweight aluminum climbing carabiners. The hammock gets great ventilation when you want it, and when you don't. Winds rip right through this, so it makes lounging on cooler days a bit chilly. This is true for most hammocks, as they are made of breathable nylon.

Overall a great quality product and something everyone should own.

Summary

The ENO DoubleNest hammock is a great and comfortable, yet extremely light way to camp. It is a comfortable way to camp and backpack, just string it up between two trees and you're ready to go! This hammock is an extremely light and fun way to camp!

Pros

  • Extremely comfortable
  • Ultra light
  • Great quality

Cons

  • Cold

The ENO DoubleNest hammock is a great and comfortable way to camp. The hammock is extremely easy to setup between two trees, it is strong and can be a great way to relax the day away.

The hammock is made from parachute material and is extremely breathable. This product is exceptional for backpacking because it packs down into the size of a softball and ways almost nothing!

I have used my hammock for a year and it works the same as the day I bought it! I typically use my hammock for backpacking and car camping because it is a great way to get away from the elements, but it works just as well inside my house where I hang it up in my room and use it as a place to relax.

Anyone who isn't sure if they want to buy should probably do some research because hammocks are not for everyone. This is one of the best products I own!

Summary

Sturdy, comfortable, light, it really performs.

Pros

  • Strong and stable
  • Quick to set up
  • Light
  • Good looking
  • Comfortable

Cons

  • Stock attachment system leaves a few things to be desired
  • Can be tricky to pack down

Over the last few years, I've gotten a really good experience base with my ENO hammock, and I've become a nearly full-time convert (to the point of choosing it over the large family tent when we're car-camping — it's way better than an air mattress). 

One of the best parts of hammocking is how rock-solid stable it is. sure there's a bit of rocking, at first, but you rarely worry about the wind blowing your hammock down. granted, in heavy winds/rains your tarp will get noisy, but that's not the subject of this review.   

Like all single-layer hammocks, it doesn't do much for insulating you, and while the solid material keeps the wind off, you'll still shed heat without some sort of insulating layer. i've done underquilts, i've done sleeping bags, there's a lot of options to keep you warm out there.  being open-topped, the ventilation is stellar tho. 

Storage isn't a real concern. for small handy items, the stuff sack that carries the packed hammock can be used, as it's attached to the middle on one side and is very easy to get to. makes a great place to tuck your headlamp/watch/etc, so you don't wind up sleeping on them. 

This hammock packs easy, stuffing down to the size of a grapefruit. it packs and unpacks in less than a coupe minutes, and sets up easy enough.  

I personally chose the hammock for its weight rating of 400 pounds, as i'm a hefty guy and most other backpacking hammocks have weight limits of 200 pounds. if you're a wee skinny twig that's great but some of us hikers are built more like vikings.  the carabiners that came with mine were the older-style steel ones that feel like they could hold a car. they're sturdy enough but not exactly light. the new-style ones i've seen, i wouldn't trust and would replace with climbing rated clips ASAP.  

While the ENO Doublenest isn't any incredibly FANCY hammock, it's a sturdy, durable, long-lasting hammock that, unlike some of the really fancy ones, is much more customizable.

Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars

Summary

Still learning all of the uses for this hammock. Have overnighted, day hikes. This has been one of the best purchases I have made. We use them from spring into fall for camping and hiking

Pros

  • Easy to setup
  • Easy to carry
  • Easy to use

Cons

  • A bit pricey if you use all of the accessories

We have had two of these for two summers (this is our third summer). Originally we got them so we could take them on hikes and relax for a while before returning. That has been great, a three or four mile out, nap, and come back refreshed!

Last fall we used them for camping. The first try we were a bit chilly, (it was in the twenties that night) but the second trip, with a Therm-a-Rest under it was great. 

We have tried different methods of hanging, and the straps that are sold work great, but tiedowns work, and we are changing over to parachute cord for the backpacking trip and it works great as well.

This guy is easy to set up, comes in lots of bright colors (easier to find at night), and is plenty strong. My first one tore open due to wear on the bottom from scraping the ground, so be careful there (REI replaced it).

Using the SLAP STRAPS is easy and quick. The carabiners are strong. It packs small using the stuff sack. I use mine all the time! I've slept in it in temps from 20F-95°F, no issues. Big enough for most sleeping systems.

Summary

After a long day hiking with a full pack, a comfortable hammock is far more relaxing than sleeping on the ground or in a tent! It is also a lot faster to set up a hammock than a tent and easier to locate a suitable campsite.

Like with any choice of camping gear, there are trade-offs, but the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. The hammock, even with a rain-fly and bug net, takes up less space in your pack than a tent. If camping in a region where there are no trees, you can still use the rain-fly with your hiking poles to set up a shelter.

Pros

  • VERY comfortable
  • Low weight and very compact
  • Suitable for warmer weather and forest hiking

Cons

  • Comfort requires 2 trees, 10-16 feet apart
  • Privacy is a little more difficult with a hammock
  • Lacks insulation underneath (not as good on cold nights)

I prefer a lighter pack and a comfortable night's sleep. I do this with an ENO Double Nest Hammock, tree straps, ENOs Pro-Fly Rain Tarp, ENOs Bug Guardian Bug Net, a sleeping pad (for insulation), a sleeping bag (bag varies based on weather), and a felt Kelty bag liner. I can set-up virtually anywhere that I can find two trees (they're everywhere). 

I do find it challenging to get dressed discreetly camping with friends of the opposite sex. I also like that I can hang all of my gear on the ropes, off the wet ground. 

The one time that we camped in a location with only one suitable tree, I used a hiking pole to setup the rain-tarp and ug net as a shelter.  I ended up sleeping on my sleeping pad on the ground (which is basically what I would have been doing if I used a tent...).

Summary

Great compact and well built hammock for lounging or switching over to the world of Hammock Camping.

Pros

  • Very comfortable
  • Compact
  • Good quality

Cons

  • Suspension straps from Eagles Nest stretch
  • Suspension is heavy

When switching over from Tent Camping to Hammock Camping I found that the Eagles Nest Outfitters Doublenest gave me plenty of room for a good Diagonal flat Lay (I am 6ft tall and 260lbs.) It is very compact and stores in its own attached stuff sack.

I originally purchased the Slap Straps from ENO and was happy with the easy setup, but the nylon straps stretch (they have a new set of straps that are better from what I have heard throughout the hammock camping forums (hammockforums.net) I personally have changed to a different lighter set up.

I used this hammock along a 150 mile section of the AT last year and Loved IT.

Do some research if you are interested in ditching your tent, but this is also great for just lounging around in.

Summary

Does everything it was designed to do. Quick and easy setup. Comfortable. And beats sleeping on the ground any day of the week.

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Packs small
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Doesn't REALLY fit two people.

The ENO DoubleNest is, in my opinion, the best bang for your buck in the hammock world. You can get add-ons to make it more expensive, but the hammock itself is cheap, so if you're using it for day hiking or in an area where flying bugs just aren't that big of a deal, it's an absolutely fantastic hammock.

Setup is easy, although DON'T buy the SlapStrap Pro.  I've heard that ENO is going to come out with new straps that don't stretch, but I'll believe it when I see it. At any rate, it's no problem at all to hook a carabiner to some tree hugger straps.  Voila.  You're ready to go.

You're likely going to want to get some sort of a rain tarp and probably some type of underneath insulation if you're going to be taking it in any sort of weather. There are plenty of lightweight options out there, and I know plenty of people have no issues with this.

The one drawback to the DoubleNest is that it doesn't really work with two people. Maybe for an afternoon backyard hang, or a short time relaxing. But there is no way my wife and I are going to sleep in that hammock overnight. A little disappointing.  Perhaps the DoubleNest Deluxe, with its extra two feet of width, would have been a better choice for that.

Otherwise, it's a great hammock to have with you for any occasion.

A great summer buy. It does everything it promises with plenty of space for 2.

Pros

  • Plenty of space for 1-2
  • Lightweight and breathable fabric
  • Compact and easily pack able

Cons

  • Didn't come with hanging hardware

I love my DoubleNest. It has taken me and my girlfriend to the beach and kept us swinging in the breeze for hours. The fabric was breathable and let the breeze cool us off on even the hottest part of the day.

Only real problem was the lack of hanging hardware, but a set of straps can be bought easily or you can use a few lengths of Para cord (strong, cheap, and easy to come by).

Also, I've had mine for over a year and a few little holes have formed but I have read many places that as long as they don't get worse, they are normal and you are not endanger of falling though.

I hope you enjoy this product as much as I do and enjoy some happy hanging!

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $60

This is a great hammock to start out with. It is comfortable, easy to set up, and well built. I've been using mine for a couple of years and do not regret purchasing it. I still use it regularly when I'm not camping just to to relax and nap in despite having upgraded to a Warbonnet Blackbird (which is, by far, the best hammock I've ever been in). The Doublenest is very roomy and can allow you to lay very flat as long as you lay diagonally on it.

The attached bag compresses the hammock well and when you are hanging from the hammock the bag is big enough to hold a 1 liter Nalgene bottle. I've kicked back in this hammock with my girlfriend, who is 5'9" and weighs 120bs, and our son, who is about 40 lbs. The hammock was able to support all three of us without any problems. I weigh 200lbs, so given our combined weight, I suspect that the weight rating is accurate. Actually trying to sleep in a hammock with more than one person would probably not work very well, but if you're just reading a book together like we were it's fine.

Despite the quality of the hammock, there are a couple of caveats about Eno, which actually have nothing to do with this hammock:

1- Stay away from Eno's slap strap suspension system, it does not work well. I would advise just getting regular webbing or, better yet, woopie slings and a couple of shorter tree straps.

2- Their guardian bug nets, while very durable, are unnecessarily heavy.

3- Their tarps aren't the best. I would recommend Warbonnet, MacCat or Speer tarps over an Eno tarp. Look for silnylon or cuben fiber tarps to save weight.

That said, the hammock itself is rock solid and I highly recommend it. For information about hammock camping, come hang out at HammockForums.net.

I believe Eagles Nest is the preferred hammock manufacturer of discerning Day Hammockers. Get their SingleNest for $49.95.

It’s easy to get carried away with excessive gear, day hammockers travel light. The essential day hammocking outfit consists of: sandals, tank top (or shirtless), fanny pack with water, snacks, and a Speedo (it’s the original banana hammock).

The only rule is that you have to leave your backyard. Otherwise you’re just napping in a hammock, and that’s not the same thing. “The SingleNest is great for a light day hammocking excursion, but I’ve since moved on to the DoubleNest. There are few things better in life than a tandem day hammocking experience. But it might not be for the beginner.”
