Rating: rated 4.5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $55

Summary

This is a great hammock. I got it as my first hammock after doing a ton of research on the various types of hammocks. The ENO SingleNest kept coming up as a top notch hammock so I got it. I would recommmend it to any new hammock-ers.

Pros

  • High quality materials
  • Folds up into a bag that is incorporated in the hammock
  • Storage bag can be used as a bag for small belongings while in hammock

Cons

  • Hanging setup is not ideal
  • Hanging materials not included

Setup is great. You'll need to get some cord, I used para-cord, or some other type of hanging cord. Just throw the cord around the tree or whatever and attach the carabiners that came with the hammock. Very simple but the cords can slip from objects or cause major sag in the hammock. I would recommend looking into Whoopie Slings if you are getting any type of hammock.

Stability depends upon where you setup and how you setup. It has blown me around in the wind, but not enough to knock me out of it. 

There is lots of room in the hammock for one person and a few pockets of junk. More that likely you will have to hang your camping gear from a tree, if you don't want it on the ground all night. The entire hammock rolls up into a small bag about the size of a large grapefruit. It can get bulky if you are backpacking long distances, but it is far better than carrying a tent. 

The materials are top notch and have shown no signs of wear after a year of use. I think it will last a long time.

Design: Hammock

Great for motorcycle camping if you have the space to pack it.

I consider a hammock to be a high-priority, optional item when motorcycle camping. After packing my essential gear and clothes, I can usually find a little more space to pack this hammock. It compresses down to the size of a softball.

When I arrive at my destination, I select a campsite with at least two trees positioned about 10 to 12 feet apart so that I can set up my hammock. As soon as I get my tent and dining area set up, I set up the hammock and then relax with a book and a cool drink. This hammock seems perfect for casual lounging (I do not know about low-impact, overnight sleeping).

In the past, I used an economy fishnet hammock. After several years, I decided to move up to a more comfortable hammock and have not regretted my decision at all. The ENO single nest is very comfortable (does not leave fish net marks on your arms), fast drying if it gets wet, compressible, and strong (it reportedly holds up to 400 pounds). I have not tested the weight limit but can testify that it holds my 250-pound frame with no problem at all.

To set up the hammock, you will also need a set of ropes or straps (not included). At first I tried a couple of ropes but quickly decided to purchase the ENO straps. I use the standard Slap Strap that is 7’6” long and 1” wide ($20). ENO also makes the Slap Strap Pro that is 9’6” long and .75” wide ($25). These straps pack small and make it very easy to set up the hammock.

Learning how to set up the hammock for maximum comfort may take a few trial and error efforts. Straps should be “lassoed” around each tree about 5 to 6 feet from the ground. The best height depends upon the distance between the trees. More distance requires a higher strap placement. The hammock should be attached to the straps so that it hangs down in the center with the lowest point about waist high.

I get into my hammock on my tiptoes. My body weight will make it stretch a little so that I hang comfortably about 2-feet above the ground. For maximum comfort, I position my feet over the edge on one side and position by body and head near the opposite edge. In effect I am lying across the width of the hammock. This position allows me to lie almost prone and avoids the confined banana wrap feeling. Sometimes, I sit in it with my legs hanging off one edge down to the ground. The opposite edge makes a nice back for my hanging chair.

I have also purchased a ENO double nest for car camping. It is much wider, presumably for two people and requires a little more packing space. Otherwise it seems identical to the single nest. I do not think I will ever try getting two people into it but younger couples may appreciate this feature.

Summary

I got the ENO Singlenest hammock for Christmas and have enjoyed it thoroughly. Highly recommend it.

Pros

  • Easy set up and take down
  • Lightweight
  • Very comfortable
  • Durable

Cons

  • The material is prone to rips and tears

My hammock is awesome. I use it every time I hike, camp, or just want to relax.

The hammock folds up into a very tight and lightweight ball, easy for storage. ENO also offers some cool accessories that add to the amazing experience.

If you don't have one, get one soon and you will agree with me that the ENO Singlenest hammock is life changing.

Welcome to Trailspace, Travis! Thanks for the review. I'm curious about a 5-star rating for a hammock that is already ripping and tearing on you? That shouldn't be happening with any hammock, unless it's overweighted or punctured.

Summary

Absolutely the best sleep of my life. I've had two of their SingleNests for over 5 years only to change colors; the Atlas straps are a must for avid outdoorsmen and backpackers.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Versatile
  • Comfortable
  • Womb-like
  • Bliss
  • Home = everywhere

Cons

  • ENO has no weaknesses.

I have been across the country and up and down the East Coast a number of times in my ENO SingleNest. Being from the Appalachias I have a special love for Eagle's Nest Outfitters.

I have memories of some of the most beautiful places in this country hanging off the sides of mountains and even rocks to get my view because of the Atlas straps and perfect hammock system...I love you, ENO!

Summary

Extremely versatile and lightweight hammock that is great for hiking, camping, or day trips. It allows you to sit in a hammock almost anywhere!

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Compact
  • Cool color schemes

Cons

  • Could be more roomier

The Eagles Nest Outfitters SingleNest hammock is great for camping, hiking, day trips, or just lounging around your yard. It's extremely easy to set up especially with the SlapStrap or Atlas strap systems from Eagles Nest Outfitters!

Makes a great gift for anyone that loves being outdoors. It's extremely lightweight and compact making it easy to carry on the go or pack in a bag! I would refer anyone this product!

Summary

Hammock is very comfortable. Has minor flaws such as loose thread in the stitching, but nothing more than that. Lightweight, but durable so great for backpacking! Would recommend this to anyone who likes the outdoors.

Pros

  • Comfort
  • Weight
  • Price

Cons

  • Loose stitching

The weight and size of this hammock is incredible. With a Pro Fly rain tarp and bug net, you have a shelter that is smaller than some backpacking tents.

Durability is strong, but the loose threads in the stitching along the edge of the hammock cause very small concern. If it came loose while backing, it would be a very easy fox, and ENO would gladly work with you if it was a factory flaw.

This product is very nice and worth the money.

Summary

For a lightweight, easy to set up/take down, and COMFORTABLE hang, the Single can't be beat IMHO. Whether I'm backpacking and need a place to sleep, or in my backyard relaxing, the Single is my go-to.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Strong
  • Comfortable
  • Easy/quick to pack up

Cons

  • Some frayed material at the seams. Doesn't affect performance, just cosmetic.

I took my SingleNest to Kettle Moraine Forest in southern Wisconsin for an overnighter this past weekend. I also have the ENO Talon ridgeline and a set of ENO Twilight LEDs.  I use a UST Hex Tarp for a rain fly, and I sewed my own DIY bug net made of some mesh window panels from Wal-Mart.

Setup was super easy, found a couple of trees a good distance apart at my campsite and threw up my straps and the 'nest. The Talon line goes up very easy too, I should add; it's super easy to adjust the length of the line and the tension.

And versatility is truly the best description for this product. I'm probably going to get two more to use as light lines/hanging lines/suspension lines for around my campsite in the future. 

As for the hammock, I'm about 6', 185 lbs. Could probably stand to be a bit slimmer, but I definitely wouldn't consider myself overweight. With that said, I had an extremely comfortable night's sleep, with plenty of room.  During the day, my wife and I sat comfortably side by side (perpendicular to the hang) and were very comfy, too. If we wanted to lay in it together, a DoubleNest would certainly be the way to go.

All in all this is a fantastic product. Can't wait for my next excursion to go and use this again!

Summary

The hammock was amazing. The ease of putting it up after a long trek through the mountains made my life a great deal easier. I sleep fairly well on most surfaces but fall fast asleep in my ENO. The best part of the hammock has to be its breathability during those awful muggy nights.

Pros

  • Ease of use
  • Breathability
  • Comfort
  • Lightweight
  • Durable

Cons

  • Not great for winter (w/o underquilt)

It works great as a standalone for beach parties and fires by the house as well as deep in the woods with a bug net.

The hammock is both comfortable and durable. The comfort has to come from the fact that there isn't any pressure points from the ground. The durability has to be from the way it's weaved and the material that's used.

The durability doesn't hurt the breathability surprisingly enough. The breathability is so great that you can actually get chilled sometimes when it's in the 50s or low 60s (°f).

I liked the fact that it's terribly easy to get set up and ready to lay in.

I would definitely recommend it to new hammock campers.

Awesome hammock. I have had mine since 2006 or so and it is still going strong. It is small and light and I take it with me everywhere. With the Slap Straps it is a quick setup and tear down.

Pros

  • Easy to use
  • Comfortable
  • Can be packed anywhere
  • Strong material
  • Light
  • Packs to the size of a softball

Cons

  • You have to have trees

I don't know what else I can say that I haven't already. This is a great hammock that will allow you to relax no matter what adventure you are on. I have recommended this brand to all of my friends and many have gotten them, and everyone who did has loved them. I even gave each of my groomsmen one at my wedding.

Summary

Not your dad's old net hammock.
Best night's sleep you'll ever get in the woods.
Very affordable, worth every cent.
Strong, but lightweight.

Pros

  • Strong
  • Lightweight
  • Very comfortable
  • Easy to set up and take down

Cons

  • None that I can find

What can I say about the ENO SingleNest hammock? I can't say enough!

I've been a hardcore camper for over 30 years. Evey day I had off I was in the woods. I used a Eureka Timberline 2 man tent for YEARS. Thought there was nothing better, till I discovered ENO and their line of products.

I've seen outfitters come and outfitters go, but, by far, ENO has the best sleep system I've came across in my almost 30 years of camping. The SingleNest got me off the ground forever. It's not like the old fishnet hammocks that forced you to sleep on your back only. My SingleNest allows me to turn, wiggle, and lie in just about ANY position I might get into during the night. Back, side, belly, curled up in a ball, doesn't matter.

And as far as rain, ENO's got that covered as well with the ProFly and the HouseFly, which I own both and love. I don't worry about getting wet. They pop right up in minutes with little effort and WILL keep you dry.

Put it like this, and I don't say this often about anyone's product: ENO's stuff does what they say it will. No BS. I've tried everything except their line of UnderQuilts. Here's the list of gear that I used and swear by:

Atlas Straps, SingleNest, Guardian Bug Net, ProFly (summer use), HouseFly (winter), HiFi Speaker System, and the Twilights

I have not regretted buying ANY of these products. As far as I'm concerned, you can't go wrong with buying ANYTHING ENO puts out.

Summary

Just finished my first time camping using a hammock vs. a tent. I am in love. Easy to set up and take down. Lightweight and compact. Not to mention insanely comfortable.

Pros

  • Easy set up and take down!
  • Comfortable!
  • Lightweight!

Cons

  • Got a little chilly, but can be remedied with the right additional gear.

Just finished a three-day camping and hiking trip with my hammock vs. a  tent. I loved this product. It's early spring here and we had a lot of wind, rain and some plummeting temps.

The only con was that the wind cut through the fabric very easily. However, I saw that there are some easy fixes to this and it was more unpreparedness on my end than the product's fault.

Setup and take down took under three minutes the first time. Second time I set up it took less than one minute.

Great product, felt safe and secure, never felt like I was going to flip out of it or fall. Now I want to try to figure out how I can set it up in my living room!

This item has changed my life. I purchased before the infamous Electric Forest knowing I would need it there. But I have acquired a craving to be in my hammock every single day to meditate, sleep, or read.

It's simple to put up, finding trees 10-20 feet apart, and just as easy to take down. I get some of my best sleep and Zzz's in this hammock! There's tons of color combos to choose from, and the prices are relatively cheap!

Summary

Best investment I have made this summer. It has so much to offer in usability!!!

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Easy setup
  • Comfortable
  • Packs small
  • Breathable

First hammock I have ever owned, and it could very well be the last because I think it will be impossible to beat. Everything about this hammock is amazing. The set up is really quick and easy, especially using their own ENO SlapStraps Pro. It does not flip even under swaying conditions, believe me I rocked it as much as I could.

It breathes nice and kept me at a really comfortable temperature during the day. At night I slept in it and used a pack blanket to keep the chill of my back because it breathes so easily. I really dont see it as a downfall, especially cause ENO provides an Ember Underquilt that will easily make this a four-season possibility.

I'm also a college student so besides camping/backpacking this hammock will be super awesome to just relax on campus and enjoy a sunny day. Overall the possibilities are endless for this hammock and it is a great edition to anyone's gear.

Happy Hammocking =)

It probably deserves 5 stars but I only gave it 4.5 due to it being something I don't need, I just wanted. I do believe it would be perfect if you want to do hammock camping although I would buy one of the rain flies.

I love this hammock. I enjoy camping and always look forward to breaking out this thing. It takes up very little space in your pack and couldn't be easier to set up.

The material is comfortable and durable (but don't let it get scratched or picked). Make sure when you put the hammock up that you get it tight so that it doesn't sag too much. I recently got the RainFly to go along with it so that trash from the trees doesn't fall into it and so I can relax in the rain.

I would certainly recommend this brand to anyone looking for a hammock to take camping, hiking, cycling or whatever.

This was another of the "gee-whiz" for this year's Boundary Waters trip. My family had just gotten used to the old-fashioned mesh style hammock that I had introduced in the last few years. Now the Eagle's Nest has raised the bar for camping comfort. Short of coming to blows, there was a constant battle for occupancy of the hammock this year.

The Eagle's Nest products are simply more comfortable then any other hammock I have tried. It was simple to hang and easy on the trees due to the strap system. The only question now is how many to bring next year.

This quick drying hammock made of soft material is so comfortable. Make sure you lay in it at a slight angle for best comfort. I have a bad back and dozed off in this hammock every day of my 4 day trip (until biting flies woke me and chased me into the tent). I woke without stiffness or pain (I may start sleeping in it full time because it's a heck of a lot more comfortable then my stearns and foster!).

I purchased this because of the "system" and I do plan on adding the mosquito netting and rainfly in the near future. My whole body was completely supported, I never felt in danger of flipping even when turning over, and it dried very fast after rains came through. Both silly and boring-fuddy-duddy color combinations are available. 100% recommended.
