This generic hammock and bug net is all an ENO is at a fraction of the cost.

Pros

  • Same materials as the ENO with perfect sewing
  • Extra wide, at 78" there's room for two
  • Complete package—hammock, tree straps, biners
  • Cheap enough to buy seven vs one DoubleNest + Atlas Straps
  • Buying this will help the fat CEO and board members of ENO lose weight and live a healthier life LOL!!!

Cons

  • You go figure. I dunno. Hahaha

Found it on Ebay and along with the generic Hammock Mosquito Net By Advanced Portable I paid under $30 total for both including biners and tree straps. I could have bought a tarp a bit cheaper, but opted for a Hennessey Hammock Hex Asym for $65. Total complete under a C note and a bit over 4 lbs. trail weight.

A full setup from ENO would have cost $250 and it's all made in China to help the fat get fatter at ENO and other similar US marketing companies. I say feed the Chinese and not the corporate greed to save the glut for my own meager bank account.

Hi Charles. There is a hammock category on Trailspace under Tents and Shelters. I've moved your review over there: https://www.trailspace.com/gear/hammocks-and-accessories/
