User Review: Eagles Nest Outfitters OneLink SingleNest
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $200 (plus S+H)
Overall, the entire sleep system is beautifully put together, although slightly cumbersome, but that's entirely understandable with most hammock sleep systems, especially with all the separate components that the OneLink has.
- Quick set up
- Complicated rain fly set up.
The OneLink sleep system is a phenomenal system for easy set up and comfortable sleep while camping. Overall, the system is easy to set up, save for the rain fly, which sadly is only supported by several lengths of accessory cord that are tied very loosely to the end corners (I'd assume it's so the user can make his/her own knots), however, it makes set up a bit difficult in a pinch.
Stability-wise, it all depends on the user's ability to pull ropes, cords, and straps tautly. Likewise, it depends on the stability of the knots used.
Light-medium rain isn't an issue, I wouldn't suggest setting it up before a hurricane of Katrina-proportions comes moseying down the way, but that's up to you. When it comes to snow, you better hope you've got yourself an under quilt, lest you freeze in the hammock and become a microwaveable burrito.
That point aside, this set up is amazing for spring and summer camping. It's breathable, lets breeze pass through to stay cool, and you'll never have an issue with condensation (unless, you know, you breathe really heavy and never move). Size-wise, the entire set up packs to be about the size of your normal one-man tent.
It's smaller than my Mountain Hardwear Sprite One, for a comparison. Overall, ENO has made a phenomenal product (although a bit pricey). I'd definitely stick with their products for hammocking (I own three hammocks, but that's not the point).
