Positive Reviews:

Almost perfect ...

I'll quickly review the Setup, Material, Size and Construction so bare with me ...

I recently took part in an overnighter in the north-eastern part of the Los Padres National Forest. The Hammock was strung 3 feet above the ground, between two relatively large tree trunks. The ENO Straps were too short, but it was nothing 6 foot of rope could not remedy. It was at ~4000 feet in altitude, temperatures ranged from ~90s during the day to ~30s during the evenings. We were not allowed to light-up fires, which made it even harder because of the fact that our packs had be relatively light 10~12 pounds.

Slipping into my sleeping bag, and then sliding into the hammock were a breeze ... However, the hammock's fabric does very little to stop the wind from cradling you asleep. Nothing that could not be remedied with a thick Space Blanket, used as a buffer/sleeping mat. The fabric's thickness -or lack of thereof- also means that the hammock is breathable, which in my opinion if a good thing too. But you just need to be aware of that aspect as it could potentially ruin a night-out.

Length wise -i'm 6'4"- the ~9 feet hammock did a great job at accommodating myself and my back pack in addition to a jacket. My only problem was with the width ... ~4'5" in width at the center is not nearly enough to accommodate shoulders and a sleeping bag ... So if in doubt go for the "double nest".

Apart from that, it's perfectly well put together, the fabric and construction are more than adequate. The quadruple stitches and the nylon sly fabric, seem to be VERY durable.

I foresee many more happy trips for mine, although it is imperative to combine it with a descent tarp to keep the wind and rain away.

A great way to camp!

I just got back from Maui where I slept in my Singlenest by the beach for a week. By far the best sleep I have ever had in the outdoors-PERIOD! It only took a couple of minutes to set up and I just used my climbing webbing so the ENO strapping might even be easier. Takes up no space at all! My only regret is not buying one of their flys for the trip. It poured one night and I ended up in the tent for a miserable night's sleep. Plus, the whole campground was under water but if I had a fly I could have watched everything float away from my nest.
Also, the hammock allows you to be right there with nature(a bonus I never thought about until the whales woke me up in the middle of the night). I thought the price was a little steep but after my trip, it is worth every penny! I was even sleeping on my side by the end of my trip. I would recommend placing something under your knees when sleeping on your back. I didn't like using a pad under me when I slept and don't want to pack a pad around anyways. I think a bag liner is in order for cold nights.
I can't wait to use it in the mountains!

Don't leave home without it!

I got a lot of guff from people when i brought home a hammock, i purchased it on a whim and i am so glad i did. This hammock packs up to the size of a softball... you can make room for it in any pack... and with the straps or webbing, you can put it anywhere. I bought this for camping but i now set it up wherever i can... balconies, day hikes, parks, backyards it is great. There is nothing better to relax in when you have really been working hard on a hike. when you take off your boots and swing in a hammock, no lie, it is more comfortable that a couch. It is almost exciting when you set it up on the mountain with a good view for the first time, it feels so strange to be that comfortable in that environment. i may purchase the double nest next to see how it is to have a little more room. The hammock seems well made and the straps are really well thought out but you can save a few bucks and a few oz's if you know what you are doing with webbing or cord.

Best Travel Hammock on the market

I've practically given up on my regular tent. I take my ENO hammock whenever I can think of a reason too. Sometimes I seem to force a reason. It's extremely comfortable and really lightweight. Rather than using a sleeping pad between my back and the hammock material as other users here write, I sleep using a sleeping bag as a cocoon. I have a full-zipping rectangular sleeping bag which I open both ends of and thread the hammock through the sleeping 'noodle' - Then I zip the foot area mostly closed. Since the sleeping bag is 'floating' around the hammock and me, nothing is getting compressed, and it actually turns out to be quite warm, if not warmer than sleeping on a pad on the ground. I use the ENO hammock in conjunction with the rain shelter, and the slapstraps (which are actually really handy and quick) - and it all weighs less and takes up less space than my usual tent. I haven't used the 'doublenest' but the 'singlenest' is great for solo camping. - it also replaces the need for any kind of travel seat, and is a hundred times more comfortable than any of them anyway.

Never go back to tents

I started sleeping in hammocks when backpacking as a kid in the 70s--back then I had a mesh-type hammock that could get cold overnight, but I slept so well that I never considered a tent unless going above the treeline.

As an adult getting back into packing light, I tried the Eno and I was transported back in time! I never sleep in a tent, now, if I can use the hammock. With a light pad under my sleeping bag, the Eno is actually warmer than the ground and infinitely more comfortable to me.

I have had mine since 2008 and there's been no sign of wear or problems. I'm 5'10", 220# and I've even had my kids wrestling in it too--the construction is excellent.

I toss a bit when I sleep, but I've never fallen out or even felt like I was going to. I can roll over, sleep on my side, whatever.

But the best part? The stars above me as I lie in warm comfort and drift to sleep.

Best Investment Made

By far the best investment I have made in camping gear. It's versatility is beyond compare. I have taken it on more than 20 campouts and 4 week-long backpacking treks. I also string it up in the backyard and always carry it in the car so I always have it available when I leave the house.

I'm always the first one to set up and then break camp, and I sleep like a rock in it. It's strong and durable, and can easily be washed. It's compact and lightweight, and easily fits in my backpack without being too heavy. As an added bonus, it's stylish and fun to look for places I can use. The possibilities are endless.

I'd say the only downfall comes from the fact that the hammock is sold by itself and the straps are separate. This is only a minor thing, though, and might actually prove to be beneficial in the future when I look to upgrade my hammock and/or straps or look to buy other awesome ENO accessories.

Simply Amazing

I guess my experience with the ENO Singlenest has been much different than the previous poster. I am also a big guy, 5'10" and 240 lbs, so I am around what the previous poster is, and I absolutely love my hammock. I have had no problems sleeping, relaxing or camping. I have used it anywhere from 90 degree humid weather all the way down to camping in 30 degrees (I will put a disclaimer that it was hard to put my liner and my bag on at the same time but once I did that it didnt move on me at all during the night) Other than that, this hammock has been simply amazing. I always keep it even in my school bag when there are times when I just want to chill out on campus. All I Had to do was just keep the slap straps and hammock in one pocket and I'm set up in two minutes. It has been the most profitable purchase I've made in a long while.

Great product, maybe not best deal

I use the single nest hammock both when camping/backpacking and for short visits to parks, hikes, in the backyard, etc. Wherever you can find two sturdy anchors, you'll be able to use it. I love how lightweight it is but still accommodates my size (6 ft tall). I was leery of buying the single nest pro for it's reduced size, don't think I would have fit in it well. I find it very comfortable and easy to sleep in.

The set up is fairly easy- but you are required to buy separate straps or ropes to put up your hammock. Eno sells $20 straps, but I use webbing and tie rope around tree or posts using water knots.

The price of the hammock is higher than other similar products that do include ropes or straps. I would have bought one of those hammocks if I hadn't found a $15 dollar reduced price on the Eno. However, the Eno seems sturdier and better built than some other hammocks I've seen.

Excellent even in extreme conditions

Got this hammock for camping because I was sick of sleeping on the ground.

I love the way you look at trees near campsites now- Its as if your finding a new fortress to settle down in.

I have slept in this hammock in freezing conditions. I will say heat loss through the thin material from wind below you is the primary factor in getting cold.

The best way to counteract this is either put a sleeping pad or blanket down before you get in. I also laid a tarp on a chain above me that covered all the way below me- I was plenty warm.

Just set this up on my balcony too. Again- the only issue is the lack of connections available with the product. I counteracted this using rope I bought from REI for like 10 bucks. Tie some bowlines and adjustable knots and your set.

Good for me (a backpacker).

I have had my single nest for several months now and I have gone on four or five camping trips with it already and have also slept in it at home for the sheer comfort. When I bought my hammock I was torn between getting this hammock or a tent. I wanted the lightest and smallest thing I could get for the practicality of it. What I was worried about was staying dry and warm. However, after having bought a rain fly, staying dry is no issue (in fact you stay more dry than your buddy with the tent because you're off the ground). And additionally, I purchased a "thermarest z-lite" which solved the insulation problem. I'm convinced that the hammock route is superior to that of the tent... Unless you plan on camping in the desert or somewhere else where there are no trees.

Negative Reviews:

Not for Everyone...

I am 5'11" and 225 lbs. This hammock, while having nothing to compare it to, is uncomfortable to sleep in, for me. I like it, and I hate to be the first one with a negative review... but this si just how it is for me.I've taken it out 3 times now. I am convinced you have to buy the Slap Strap accessory, it is very time consuming trying to find an even relatively comfortable position while tying and untying the knots. So basically, you can count on another [$] purchase to make it as easy as they say.Good luck trying to stay on a sleeping pad in this hammock... or getting in and out of your bag, or keeping your bag the way you want it. Everything shifts and twists with the slightest movement.I don;t know, I'm a bigger guy, maybe the double nest was more suited for me. There is not nearly enough material to lay 'diagonal' on the single nest. I am a side and stomach sleeper, and for this hammock to keep me in one position... I haven't had a good night's sleep in it yet.So there you have it. I like it for a hammock, for a siesta in the trees,but for a guy my size at least, who likes a little freedom while he sleeps, it just isn't for me. Thinking about trying a different brand or bigger hammock. This one's going on ...

Too Small go with the DoubleNest

I bought this for my fiancee when we went hiking a few weeks ago. He didn't like it because it was way too small. He actually even fell out of it at one point. My advice would be go with the bigger DoubleNest hammock. That is the one everyone else had on the trip and we loved them. The single just doesn't have enough room to get comfortable.

A hammock you gotta buy other stuff for.

What kind of hammock is this? You can't attach it to a tree unless you buy other parts? Nice trick!

Neutral Reviews:

Sufficient - but not the best

This is a good hammock, but not the best I have used. I bought this hammock only because the Byer Moskito Traveler was out of stock at my local REI and I didn't have time to wait for the shipping. This does have a hefty weight rating at 400 lbs, but most campers are not that heavy, so the 240 lbs rating on the Byer is sufficient.Sleeping in the ENO is challenging. laying end to end tends to fold my body in half, and laying diagonal, while providing more comfort, results in my feet falling off the edge periodically. The extra cost for the mosquito net is insulting when you have an integral net on the Byer for much less dollars. If you like fancy colors or need the 400 lbs rating then you may like this ENO hammock. If you want a great hammock for a great price, I would go with the Byer Moskito Traveler for sure.

Super comfy

Great hammock so far, can't grasp the idea as to why you have to purchase straps for it seperatly though. The material is surprisingly strong. I can not believe how much stress the material can take. The hammock is honestly slightly small for my liking but works perfectly and I never feel like I'm going to fall out, I just would like more room for error haha. I'm 6 foot 200 pounds. I think the product has too high of a price point. Buying everything for the hammock adds up quickly.

Not the best for backcountry use

Not the best for back packing as in the back country temps can get low. Not warm enough (even with a 20 degree bag). Perhaps using sleeping pad with it would help?
