I have had a double deluxe hammock for about 10 months now and it has been the best buy I have made. It is comfortable, light (much lighter than any tent you will find), and extremely reliable. It is easy to set up almost anywhere (that being where there are trees or something of similar nature)
I use my hammock in place of a tent (usually), and it is the best and easiest way to sleep for me. My first few times out needed some adjusting, but after sleeping in it a few times, it wont be easy to sleep in anything else. There is a seem in the center of the hammock that takes some adjusting, but, in my oppinion, does not make the hammock uncomfortable. During the summer this will be your love! The hammock is entirly breathable and puts up little blockage from the temperature, and virtually no protection from the wind, so during those hot summer days you stay much cooler than if you were in a tent. Winter on the otherhand can bring some real discomfert and would not recommend using it during those times. My first few times using my hammock I used some spare rope, but after a recommendation from a frind, I bought the slap strap pro to go with it to hang the hammock to the trees, and I would highly recommend anyone with one of these to buy a pair as well.
The size is amazing, and EXTREMELY comfortable with two people in it. I've set mine up on top of some of the greatest lookout points and layed in it with my girlfriend and it couldn't get any better than that.
This is a well made, reliable, relaxing hammock that is well worth the money.
Bigger can be better
Figured I should review the Eno DDN since it seemed it was getting a bad rap and it doesn't deserve it. I've had mine for a year now and I've slept in it many times and lounged around even more. The DDN is perfect for someone who loves lots of room when they sleep, the center seam is not a problem unless there are two people in the Hammock, when there are the center seam will tighten up and stick up between the two, its not a bad thing. Just makes it hard to cuddle but if you like a dividing wall between you and them its good. Also mine was a bit itchy at first for a few weeks but then web away, it may have just been mine though. The DDN is a little big in terms of backpacking but if you love room the extra weight and size is well worth it. In its stuff sack its the size of a football without the points. You can lay perfectly flat diagonally and throw the stuff sack pocket over your opposite side to make a nice cocoon. Overall this hammock is great for someone who likes some room, I've tried single wides and can't stand them. If you want the California Kings of Hammocks you can't go wrong with the DDN.
I have had an eno for a few years now and finally got it out on a week long camping trip in the black hills. There was snow on the ground still in March so we took the hammocks.
Pro- light, easy to set up, but the biggest suprize I had NO.. Backpain in the morning. Usually sleeping on the ground with the cold air causes me to be really sore in the morning.
Con- if its windy its cold, and when sleeping single in the "double nest" the sides flap when its windy, this anoyed me a few nights but I got over it.
- Bring a close cell sleeping pad this will stop the wind and help you sleep more "flat". Rig it tight and you'll sleep like a baby.
O Yeah dont try to sleep two all night, it really sucks. For a nap or hanging around its awesome.
My husband and I love this hammock. It's well made both he and I fit comfortably. He is 172lbs, I'm 124lbs. We take it everywhere we can, including backpacking. It's a little heavy to take on a long backpacking trip. But it's a well worth luxury and a most rewarding item to have. It really adds to your outdoors experience. Let me paint the picture. You go on a 7 mile hike in the mountains and when you return you slumber in your hammock and drink some hot tea and gaze at the sun setting and moon rising. A must have and a great gift. We have had ours for 3 years and no issues, only great memories!
Love these hammocks!?!
I was originally introduced to the Eno brand hammocks by my brother back in 2010. We were camped in some woods at a music festival and him and his wife brought both their Eno single hammocks. I spent more time in theirs then I did in my regular hammock. I decided that after that I would get one as well. At the end of the summer in 2011 I finally got this one when it was on sale. I absolutely love this freakin thing. Its so big and cozy I love taking napping in it. Its great for road trips when you need a break from driving. Just pull over, find some trees and you're set!
We used this to camp while we went for an offroading adventure. It is very easy to setup and take down, which was perfect for pulling off the road and hooking to the rollbar and whatever else was around. I was a little concerned when we first got in it, with all the creaking and noise it was making, but it held us well. I didn't even notice the centerline issue everyone was talking about the first night. I did on the second tho. It was never an issue since we just made a simple adjustment of position and we were good to go. This hammock will be a permanent fixture in my 4x4.
Better have a gps using this hammock
Better have a gps using this huge hammock as you could get lost in there by yourself. I also have the doublenest which is great for 1 and you can get 2 in it but it is a little cramped. The Deluxe Doublenest is better for two with more room to spare. Not sure I would take my new Deluxe Doublenest backpacking because it does weigh more than the regular Doublenest but the deluxe is great for car or atv camping
Love My Hammock
I use the hammock on campouts. I am overweight and it covers me up while I am napping. Great for privacy, although I am sure that is not what it is meant for. I was dissapointed that it did not come with straps to hang it up nor was it mentioned when my husband purchased it as a Christmas gift. Very frustrating that I was not able to use once I opened it up.
Bought this for my wife and I and we love it. Plenty of room for two adults and even a little kid. I would buy another one in a heartbeat!
Light yet durable!
Very easy to use! My partner and I loved hanging out in the same hammock. Our nieces can vouch for this easily!
