    ENO - Single or Double

    I'm getting ready to buy a new ENO and would like suggestions on getting a double nest vs a single. My only reason for questioning, is I have a HH Explorer Delux and all the extra material bothers me. I am a side sleeper, and with männer aus dem knast kennenlernen the HHED, if I sleep on one side, my head is on the edge, on the other side there is just a lot of extra fabric in my face.

    I think the real real issue is that I'm not a asym fan and it may not be the size of the hammock at all.

    So, for those of you who have used both a single and double, give me your input. I'm ready to buy!!!

    Double. There is no drawback, IMO.

    The double allows you more room to lay on the diagonal, and thus in a flatter position.

    my 1st hammock was a ENO single & i took it back because i found it so unstable.
    i traded up for a double & it was great.
    i'm still not sure if it was because i was new w/ hammocks or because that particular single wasn't gathered & whipped when it was made.
    i laid in a single since then & it was fine.
    but still i think the double may be more comfortable in the long run, even though i did find the extra width to be bothersome & in the way.
    what i did was to cut & re hem the extra strip of material on both sides. i added velcro & then i could bring the sides mark driscoll dating questions in to cover me from neck down.
    sorry, i don't have pictures. i let someone borrow it last year & haven't got it back<G>.

    Double, might I suggest taking a look at Treklight double it's the same hammock and comes with a lifetime warranty. I have bought two so far and am Happy with both. Seth's a great guy and stops in on hammock forrums every once in a while and lets us know when he's having sales.


  • 01-30-2008, 21:04

    I have the double and like it a lot. but I might like the one I made a little better, as it is longer and allows me to stretch out more, gave me the satisfaction of doing it myself, and cost like 10$ compared to 60$


  • 01-30-2008, 23:02

    Love my double also.

    I have tried both. Love my double!


  • 01-31-2008, 01:15

    I have both. I only use the double. My daughter of 7 uses the single. I feel like the single does not have enough room when you are in it with a sleeping bag, but the double does.

    I trust everyone, it is the devil in side them i dont trust.

    I have to agree with the others on the ENO hammocks. I had a single, got it swapped for a double and love it! I sleep so much more comfortably in the double than I did in the single. The small weight penalty is very much worth it, in my opinion. After adding a structural ridgeline to mine, I an sleep on the asym in it and lay totally flat. I think almost anyone who is going to buy an ENO is better off getting a DoubleNest.


  • 01-31-2008, 07:43

    Sounds like the DoubleNest it is. Heading out after work to see if I can find one locally that I like. (I know I'll probably get to hang in it a few times before Zak leaves on his thru. Then it will probablyh accidently get packed in his bag!)

    Thanks everyone for your input. It's nice to be able to draw off of everyone's experience.

SilvrSurfr

03-10-2015, 21:20

I'd say neither - look into a Dutch hammock like the PolyD 1.4 or Argon for $35, or maybe a BIAS Hiker Lite. Much better value and comfort.

03-10-2015, 21:20

I like a wide hammock, so I'd vote double. Have you tried an ENO? Are you comfortable with it's shorter length? Have you considered a 10 or 11 foot hammock from some of the other vendors.....Dutchware, SLD, DH, Hammock, etc.? Lots of choices.

if you're actually planning on sleeping in this hammock and not just lounging around, I would get something different than the ENO. ENOs are short and there are better value hammocks out there that will be better quality and more comfortable. SilvrSurfr made some good suggestions

ENO is fine, I don't think you are really small, probably average size for an American.

Many of us started with an ENO. I am 60 inches tall, I bought the double nest, it is very comfortable for me. I just like my other hammocks a bit better.

Hammocking has a learning curve, many of us develope expensive tastes in hammocks as we turn in what fits our style the best. I found ENO to be a great company to deal with.

Dutch's hammocks are nice as are the other basic hammocks sold on this site.,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,Lots of choices.

There are no big box importers that can or will give you the kind of customer service ANY of the HF Vendors provide.

Many are active on this site. Eno, GT, HH, are not.

Any "basic" hammock purchased from any vendor associated with this site will beat the best hammock Eno can offer.

They will be better constructed, last longer, perform better, and be more comfortable. Count on the Imports to run, short, narrow, and be heavier than need be. Suspensions also usually need to be trashed and replaced before you take it out of the stuff sack.

You don't need the research compiled here on HF, let alone the thousands of hours actually put into field testing these and other products to make the informed decision to go Eno.

Another skip the ENO and look around on the forum vote. You will see that there are a lot better options. I have an ENO myself and it is comfortable. But I wish I had come here and asked the same question you asked before I bought it. It would have save me money and I would have ended up with a lighter and better product.

Why? I'm not saying that ENO wouldn't work for you, but ENO hammocks are expensive for what they are. I'll take REI's price as a reference - the SingleNest would be $59.95 and is 118" x 55"; the DoubleNest costs $69.95 and is 118" x 80". You only get the hammock itself, no usable suspension. Which means you'll have to spend more money before you're able to use your new hammock.

Compare this to e.g. one of the hammocks Dutch sells: a single layer 10' NylonD hammock costs $35. The size is 10' x 60". An 11' NylonD is only $2 more expensive. Additionally, Dutch's hammocks are made out of one piece, which means no seams where your head and feet are. I don't know how the weight compares, but my guess would be, the NylonD would be a bit lighter. And for $60 you could get a NylonD double layered hammock, which would allow you to use a pad for insulation.

There are plenty of other cottage vendor options - all their hammocks are made in the US. I think ENO has them made in China. I'm pretty sure, the people sewing their hammocks don't see much of the money - in contrast to the cottage gear makers.

These are just a couple of reasons why most people here on the forums said you'd be better off with another brand.

Last but not least, size matters a bit, too. However, in a hammock length makes more of a difference than width. Width doesn't do much good if the hammock is (too) short. Just take a paper towel and make a hammock model. If the hammock is short and wide, you will essentially have a bathtub shape. The sides are pulled up high, and you won't be able to use the width *and* lie flat. With a longer hammock, the same width becomes a lot more usable.

Most people your size who want to use their hammock for more than just lounging in the backyard go with a 10' or 11' hammock.

If you still want to go with ENO, I'd say take the SingleNest. I don't think you will be able to use the additional 35" the DoubleNest provides. It will just make the hammock heavier.

If you are dead set on an ENO (and I am with the rest of the folks on getting a Dutchware blank, Dutchware suspension, Dutch ridgeline and Dutch will even put it all together for you if you ask nicely) at your size you can go either way. You will find the ENO single to be narrower and I happen to like my hammock a bit wider but the double will have extra material that will kind of flop over you. If that is not an issue then get the double for the extra width.

BTW, I started with an ENO double, then moved to a HH Deluxe, and now for winter camping use a Dutchware Aragon blank. I am only 5'2" and found the ENO a bit short for me.


dakotaross

03-11-2015, 10:42

What the double gives you is more room to get diagonal, which may negate the shortness of hammock given your height. I had a double and found I didn't like the floppy sides (extra material).

Issue with ENO is cost primarily, though its hard to sway if you've got your mind set on a product for whatever personal reasons you have. If you want a North Face jacket, its likely because you've seen so many on others and like that look - others may be similar, but not the same - I get that.

But this is not clothing - its a rectangular piece of material that's sewed and gathered at the ends. A 10 footer at Dutchware is $30 vs. $55 for the ENO (best price you'll find on it). Its $48 for the ENO single, but then you're getting that much more hammock with the Dutchie. BIAS has a $33 hammock in additional colors, or two-tone like the ENO for about the same price if that's your thing. Benefit there is its easier to use a pad in the double layer BIAS, and again, more hammock.

You'll need to buy the suspension extra, and that's $20 for ENO, or $15 shipped for a Dutch cinch buckle suspension that is so much better - lighter and more adjustable.

In the end, if its ENO, buy the single as I don't believe the additional cost will be justified.

That's $20 for the slap straps, which are not good straps due to their being stretchy. $30 if you want Atlas straps, which are the good ones.

I'm curious about what is so attractive about a heavy, overpriced, too-short hammock that won't even come with a proper suspension. What sold you on ENO as the best way to go? Do you have a friend who swears by ENO?

I personally can't tolerate ENO's deceptive marketing, primarily aimed at people who know absolutely nothing about hammocks, who don't know they can get better, cheaper, more comfortable hammocks. The Doublenest is marketed as a two-person hammock, and the vast majority of people who've tried two people in a hammock know it's a recipe for misery and sleepless nights.

I'm very much in that corner. I'm always a bit confused when people just announce out of the blue that they've done the research and have finally decided to go Big Box. The research could not have possibly have been done on this site, so when it posts here, I get a bit confused, I guess.

I've at least tried,if not owned, a GT ultralight, Eno Double nest, and Dutch PolyD. The best by far in all areas is definitively Dutch. My graduation of suspension in order of preference from worst to favorite is as follows: sketchy cord, Eno Slap Strap Pro,Speed Hooks, with whoopie slings, and Dutch cinch buckles\dutch clips tied for the top. So I too join the choruses praising Dutch.

There's no better value out there than the Dutch hammocks or the BIAS Hiker Lite right now. Add a Dutch bugnet for $45, and a whoopie hook suspension with straps for $39, and you're all set (other than insulation and tarp). You'll hear a lot of folks advocate integrated bugnets with zippers. However, I like modular systems. I have maybe 10 hammocks but only three bugnets (I got kids).

I like trying different hammock fabrics affordably, and you can try Dutch's fabrics for around $35 a pop.

I want to add some perspective, being a fairly recent hanger (< 1 year). I started with a Grand Trunk double because it was on clearance at rei, and it was a good price with a usable suspension. I took it camping just for lounging, then started to get serious and joined HF. I was skeptical about the cottage vendor fan-boy talk and how quickly they dismiss the large hammock companies. I think my GT is still a comfortable hammock, but the size is longer than spec'd and much longer than the ENOs. Even so, I have to say Dutch, Warbonnet, Hammock Gear and Hammeck have amazing products, quality and customer service. I have a Dutch argon and a poly Hammeck and both are awesome.

My friend bought an Eno as his first hammock. It seems fine, As a new user, I found it comfortable. After trying it out it sold my wife and I on buying hammocks/gear, and we went with a couple WL night owls.

The night owls are roomier, and easier to get comfortable/flat in. The material is softer and more comfortable, The stuff sack size is smaller and better made, and it came with nice suspension.

But to me especially as a small business owner, the best part is, when I called Wilderness Logics, the guy who made my stuff answered the phone and answered my questions.

If the Eno's or other mass produced, imported brands were priced far less than handmade gear available here in the states, I might understand, as they could be viewed as a stepping stone to get people started with hammocks on a budget. But they are the same price, if not more. That makes it a complete no brainer.


RisingEagle

03-14-2015, 08:45

I'm another 'newbie hammock guy' just getting into the hammock world, and I can tell you from all the research I've read - don't go with a mass-produced if you're buying a hammock. Dutch's hammocks (as an example) are always highly reviewed, and very competitive cost-wise (I think a basic Dutch hammock is 1/2 of what an eno runs).

I'm using an eno doublenest right now, only because a friend (who had a very evil plan to turn me from a ground-dweller into a hammock guy) let me borrow his. If that's an option for you - I'd highly recommend borrowing one for a couple days to try it out.

but when you do a bit of reading on here (with TONS of experienced people on the board), you won't find very many who recommend going with an ENO over a dutch or similar.

now having said that, if I was going to buy one, I would probably lean toward the double. the extra material is actually kind of nice when it's cool out - I've used about 4 clothespins to clip the extra fabric together over the top of me, creating a makeshift sock. the extra material doesn't really get in the way much at all.

anyway, my 2c, worth pretty much what you paid for it ;)

Why the attack mode? He likes ENO. I have one DN, one JN, and two SN. I also own two different hammocks (one ten and one eleven foot) from one of the cottage venders listed on this site. I have no problem with the ENO suspension, but plan to change one of my ENO hammocks to a lighter suspension set for backpacking. Why does it matter to some of you guys why he likes it? The reason my 5’ 9 “, 250 pound body likes ENO is because it is more conformable to me. I like the SN better because I am able to get out of it easier than the DN. Enjoy your ENO, but watch out because you will grow into buying more and different types. Just remember mine is always better than yours! LOL


hutzelbein

03-14-2015, 10:06

Why the attack mode? He likes ENO.

I don't think anybody wanted to "attack" anything or anybody. The OP simply asked which ENO model to go with, and since he seemed to be new to hammocks and hadn't even tried an ENO, yet, most people (who have a bit more experience) pointed out that ENO might not be the best value for money.

With the exception of only a couple of models, most no-net hammocks are simple rectangular pieces of fabric. They only differ in fabric and how it's sewn, the dimensions, the type of whipping or gathering and, if included, the suspension. ENO and most of the other "parachute" hammock makers sell something very simple that is on the small side for many (but not all) users, often without (usable) suspension for a comparatively high price. If you like the size / fabric / color scheme / brand / image, that is fine. There are a couple of people here who prefer their ENO over other hammocks. But seeing that most people only start with ENO and end up with a cottage gear hammock, it's reasonable to point out that there actually are more choices - and that those choices are on average better value for money, if nothing else.

When I discovered hammocks, I wanted a Hennessy DJ hammock. But then I found this forum, and I was given options that turned out to suit me much better. Several years and hammocks (including one Hennessy) later, I'm still glad that I did not go with my first choice then.


dakotaross

03-14-2015, 10:10

Why the attack mode?...

Why the defensiveness?

Lot's of us have replied directly about which ENO we think is best. And I think its been explained ad-nauseum why we might want to steer away from ENO. Again, ENO is not necessarily a bad hammock, but its sold in camping/hiking stores almost exclusively as the only hammock product available. There's a lot of folks out there that see this product and want to try it for camping. But its twice as expensive as competing products that don't have retail distribution channels. What a great business plan, eh?!? AND its dimensions are not nearly as conducive to camping as others.

How else are we supposed to say that?

What an interesting thread. I'm also newish to hammock camping, also have an ENO (DN), and also am already ready to graduate to a bigger hammock (Dutch, when are the Argon 11' coming back?!?! :-) ).

While ENO hammocks are relatively expensive and short compared to the smaller production makers, they do have at least one virtue. ENO has done a good job of spreading the idea of hammock camping. Clearly many of the people on this forum started with ENO hammocks and then graduated to other brands or DIY hammocks. I'd bet that much of the market that is supporting Hennessy, Dutch and others started with ENO. For that, I think they deserve a bit of credit.

Some of that credit must also go to REI. Their amazing return policy gave me the confidence to try out hammock camping having never slept in a modern fabric hammock before.

So, as one more person who got an ENO and is quickly looking for my next hammock, I'm glad that I've found this style of shelter, and this forum. I'm not sure I would have without ENO.

Oh, and to answer the original question, I'd definitely would go with the double nest. That extra width is worth it for anyone.

my $.02,

Many more new hangers will buy an eno or HH this month with their REI rebate and discount. Go for it! That's how I got my Grand Trunk double ( from the outlet) and loved the way it hung with atlas straps, stock heavy cord, and some climbing biners. Less than a year later and I camp with a Hammeck Netty, Dutch straps and hooks and DIY whoopie slings. I get my Dutch argon out for lounging instead of the Grand Trunk. I think I'm pretty typical, except maybe I didn't try an xlc yet, but be prepared to try other hammocks if you stay on this forum. You can return the eno to rei or keep it for old times sake, but it's still a lot heavier and more expensive up front than a Dutch combo.

I have the ENO double nest. I'm actually in in right now in my living room hanging on the EDO indoor hangers. As many many other people have stated as an ENO owner I would not recommend one if you want to get into backpacking because as comfy as it is there are many short comings to the ENO after owning mine for 2 years I know. The suspension while adequate is heavy and not as easy to set up as a set of whoopie slings would be. So you might find yourself wanting to swap out the ENO suspension with something more lighter and versatile. Also you will need Tree Straps so budget for those as they don't come with the ENO. It issue with the ENO is not that it's mass produced it's that you have to add on or replace stuff to get the same functionality out of it as a cottage vendor hammock. So if you spent $70 on the ENO then plan on spending $10-$20 more for the tree straps. Then you might want a Bugnet. You can make them but as a newbie I bought an ENO and spent way more money on it (another $60) than I should have and the ENO bug net is a pain to get in-and-out of with it's vertical zipper. Now I wish I had a hammock with a built in bug net. Now I'm wanting to add a ridgeline to my ENO DN, and that will be yet more money to throw at the ENO when others come with it from the start. As an ENO hammock owner and user if I would go back and time to tell ground dwelling myself just buy a better hammock form a cottage vendor I would because it would have allowed more flexibility form the get go and I would have saved money as well because most of them like DH include better suspension, a ridge line, and netting. But your question was specifically if you should get a single nest (SN) or a double nest (DN). If you must get ENO get a DN.

What happened to HYOH?

I have both, an Eno SingleNest and a Double nest. I enjoy the lay of both of them and find them both comfortable. I do like the Double better as it is easier to get a good diagonal on. Also, I kinda like the extra fabric, you can wrap up in it on cold windy hangs or you can use it as a chair and pull one side up behind your shoulders to easily sit and chat with other hangers. Finally, my wife and I (me=5'11" 210lbs wife=5'1" 140lbs, dont tell her i told you) can both fit comfortably in the double nest. We laid in it for a couple of hours last weekend. She read and I dozed off to sleep.

WITH ALL OF THE BEEN SAID...

I enjoy my Enos because it is the only brand I have ever used. Had I have seen this thread before purchasing my hammocks I would probably be a proud owner of a Dutch product by now. So much cheaper, longer, great customer service...the Pros list goes on and on. My next hammock will definitely be from Dutch or another cottage vendor from this site.

With your size, I'm sure you will thoroughly enjoy an Eno product, but why not get more for less?

Whatever you decide, Hang Your Own Hang.

A lot of great comments and instruction and I yes have bought a used Eno DN last fall for my 1st experience ever in a hammock and my brother got a new Eno unit as well... that said it was a stepping stone in getting antiquated with this Hanging thing LOL I have taken what I think I've learned from a couple hangs and this amazing forum and having it setup in my basement, this unit as I have learned isn't the best for me, it has pushed us into a new and adventurous way of camping tho, I just ordered 2 Simply Light Design Tree Runner DL hammocks last night and new fly's because this ENO kinda helped us dive in!!! could I have saved money NOT getting the Eno, YES, but I am able to give it to my wife because it suits here needs. Enjoy whatever you buy and Hang!!!!

Just wanted to share my 2 cents. I'm brand new to hanging, but excited for my upcoming 3 night 4 day trip in the smokies in 2 weeks. I dove into hammock videos until my head hurt and settled on a Hennessy Deluxe Explorer Zip. I have a good dividend at REI so I emailed Hennessy with a couple questions. While waiting for a response from Hennessy (which I still am, 3 and 1/2 weeks and counting) I stumbled onto Hammock Forums and read, and read, and read........I started looking at some of the vendors on this site and looked at A Warbonnet Blackbird XLC as I am 6'4 220, I emailed and called Brandon. I received an IMMEDIATE response. Brandon was awesome and for that reason I ordered a WBBB XLC and a Superfly Tarp. (I'm sure the Hennessy is a great system as well, which is evident from the owners, but customer service is really important and that was my deciding factor)
In addition, I was able to speak with Paul (arrowhead equipment) and ended up ordering a New River Long KAQ UQ, again super friendly and extremely knowledgeable!
While waiting for my cottage set-up, I pulled the trigger after watching a few reviews on an ENO Junglenest for my son ( dividend) and a set of Kammock Python straps, still deciding on a tarp for him but probably going with the ENO Hex (again dividend through REI). The ENO came in quickly and set-up was breeze, you do however have to hang an independent ridge line for the bug net. We both tried it out, and my son loved it! I also felt comfortable and started to second guess my order. ( this was the first time either of us had tried a hammock.
About a week later my WBBB XLC came in and I immediately set it up, which was even easier than the ENO. Now I am not here in any way to blast ENO as hammocks are personal preference in many ways, i.e. Ford v Chevy v Dodge,,, ( I'm Toyota all the way sooooo blast away). BUT the moment I got into the WBBB XLC, my first thoughts were, how in the heck can I keep my son out of this so he doesn'tsee how much more comfortable my hammock is 😨. I then started to think about cost and really, the ENO Junglenest $99, plus the suspension $29, the WBBB XLC 1.7 DL $200. Cost difference is negligible considering comfort and room gain IMO. Whatever your decision, I'm confident you'll be far more comfortable than sleeping on the ground. Happy Hanging and thanks for all of the knowledge on this site. Special thanks to Brandon with Warbonnet Outdoors and Paul with Arrowhead!

I bought the ENO singlenest and regret not getting the double. I've tried the double and it is much more comfortable at not much of an extra cost/weight sacrifice.

I have an ENO and i wouldnt recommend it for anything besides car camping or sitting in a dog park. If you are going to sleep in it there are better options, if you are going to hike with it there are better options, if you are trying to save money ENO is not the right hammock for you either. I own a singlenest, and if i were to recommend you to buy one i would refer you to buy it at REI. Then order a better one from one of the many vendors people have said, when it comes return the eno to rei.

I'm 5'7" and I like the double nest over the single nest. Be aware that listed dimensions of the ENO are before sewing, so everything is 4-8" less than indicated (the amount needed to hem the edges and make the gathered end). So they are even shorter and narrower than you think.
