...but still this thing kills it. I've used friends' DoubleNests in the past, and the extra room is awesome, but I got the SingleNest, because, well, honestly, I never bothered to ask my friends which ones they have. You'll still have plenty of room in this guy, though. Its not often that I'd REALLY need the extra room for a second person to chill in here, but the weight limit on this one is high enough that I don't see myself exceeding it, even with a second person. (I'm also pretty light, though.)
Be sure to consider getting a set of the SlapStraps to set this up with also- makes the whole system ridiculously simple to use!
Nylon hammocks are amazing, and this is a solid example. I've chilled in it in backyards, campsites, and even bivvied in it in a few times.
My only complaint is that the stock carabiners are just about useless. They are very heavy, and have sharp edges on the gate that actually started to do damage to the cord I was using to rig with. Replace them with whatever the cheapest climbing carabiner you can find is and it will be a serious upgrade.
I was doing mostly car camping, sleeping in a VW bus and the occasional tent when my friend turned me onto an eno hammock. They are the best for lounging at a campsite or relaxing after a hard hike up the mountain. No pressure points result in no back pain in the morning like sleeping in a bus sometimes does. The single nest is the perfect size for me 6'0 , 170 lbs.
I know it's a bit of a novelty, but I love carrying this thing into the backcountry
It's really quite light, packs up very nicely, can accomodate a variety of sitting/lying positions (can be a sleeping hammock as well!) and is a breeze to setup; you definitely won't regret having hauled it when your relaxing in it before a nice vista in the evening
It's great in the backyard as well!
