Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO) DoubleNest Hammock Review
As a lightweight and very packable double hammock the Eagles Nest Outfitters DoubleNest has gained a huge following for several reason.
It’s portability means you can stuff it in your backpack and enjoy kicking back on extended camping or hiking trips. Plus, at 20 oz it is barely heavier than it’s smaller brother, the Eagles Nest Outfitters SingleNest Hammock, and you’ll have the added bonus of comfortable sitting two people.
Built from stretchy 70D high-tenacity breathable nylon taffeta, the Eagles Nest Outfitters DoubleNest is truly a super comfortable hammock. In deed, the comfort level is the main reasons so many people have flocked to this hammock and given it very high reviews.
The parachute nylon is extremely breathable which is a bonus when relaxing and sleeping during hot summer months and it is soft enough to use against bare skin.
It may not be as large and spacious as other double hammock models on the market, but if you’re not concerned about shear size then the ENO DoubleNest could be a solid option for you. We found it plenty large enough to comfortably fit two people and possible to completely cocoon up in the extra material when sleeping in it solo.
When it comes to comparing the Eagles Nest Outfitters DoubleNest to other double hammocks out there it is a very close call. Given personal preferences and sleeping positions one may find the larger sized Grand Trunk Double to be overall more comfortable, but this hammock was a very close runner-up.
Weight & Size
At 20 oz the ENO DoubleNest is among the lighest double hammocks on the market and comes with two ultralight ENO Aluminum Wiregate Carabiners and lightweight nautical grade line.
An added bonus is that this model comes with an ultra-lighweight compression stuff sack to make packing away the hammock easy and efficient. When it’s packed down to the 4″ x 5″ size, you won’t have much trouble finding a place for it in your pack.
This incredible portability is what makes it one of our favorite double hammocks for providing a place to sit and relax around camp or cozying up just for sunset with your significant other.
Note that the hammock does not come with a suspension system, so keep in mind that you will need to add a high-quality hammock straps to your setup before you head out on your first adventure.
As a hammock brand, Eagle Nest Outfitters is one of the most trusted manufactures out there, which is why they have such a huge following. It’s also great to know that all of their hammocks offer a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty if any durability issues were to arise from use.
Constructed from extra strong parachute nylon with added triple interlocking stitching the ENO DoubleNest is built to last. Buying a hammock with high quality materials and construction is vital if you want to get years of future use from the hammock.
As a double hammock it’s designed for two people and can hold a maximum weight of 400 lbs. This means you can rest assured in your hammock without worrying about the hammock failing; just keep in mind not to overload it with more weight than designed. You can even set up the hammock for a kids hangout around camp and have several kids comfortable fit into it.
Overall we didn’t find any durability issues, and we are confident that with proper care this hammock can withstand even the harshest weather and elements year-after-year.
Given it’s incredible portability and lightweight the ENO DoubleNest ranks as one of the most versatile double hammocks.
We love double hammocks because they are generally more spacious and comfortable than singles, plus they only weigh a few ounces more. We found the ENO DoubleNest was a perfect option for two people to relax in as a chair or hanging up along the trail during a long day hike. However, even as a double for ultimate comfort you’ll want to sleep in the hammock solo so that you’ll have plenty or material to wrap yourself up in.
At a slightly smaller length you have the added benefit that you can hang the hammock in more restricted spaces and between tighter trees. This can come in handy when hanging options are limited.
We want to stress that because it packs down to the size of a grapefruit, you’ll always be wanting to bring the hammock along just for the added bonus of relaxing off the ground. It’s one of the most backpack friendly double hammocks and once packed away in its attached stuff sack you can easily slide it into you bag.
Although designed as a camping hammock, the ENO DoubleNest is incredibly versatile an ideal for anything from backpacking, traveling, relaxing at the beach, or just kicking back in your back yard or indoors.
The ENO DoubleNest is comparable to other double camping hammocks on the market. We didn’t feel that it was a standout competitor when it came to value, but given it’s combination of lightweight and portability it can be a great all-around double hammock.
With the hammock you’ll get two of ENOs ultralight carabiners and a built-in stuff sack, but remember that the hammock is sold without a suspension system. There are many great hammock strap options out there, but an easy solution is the ENO Atlas Hammock Suspension System.
