Ideal for backyards, campgrounds or the backcountry, the DoubleNest Hammock by Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO) is lightweight, functional and easy to use. Sized to fit two people, the DoubleNest packs inside its integrated stuff sack.
Any time you need to relax in the backcountry Eagles Nest Outfitters has got you covered with the DoubleNest Hammock. We are going to take a look at all the features here and talk about what makes this particular hammock so special.
This hammock is ideal for a variety of different adventures. It is small enough, light enough and packable that you can take it into the backcountry. It is really convenient and easy to set up. So taking it into the back yard, to the campsite, even on picnics, even if you go on a day hike and just want to relax, this is a really great option.
As the name suggests it is a double nest. So there is room enough in here for two people to fit comfortably. You can either lie down or sit side by side. And there is enough fabric here in the hammock that it is going to extend out and have two people sit in it comfortably.
It supports the weight of up to 400 pounds. And the straps that go along with it are also rated to 400 pounds. So you definitely have enough support there. And even if you are just one person sitting or laying in the hammock, it is really comfortable. So if you are just one person that wants sprawling comfort, the DoubleNest is an excellent option for that as well.
All the stitch lines here are reinforced. It is really durable. And the material here is 100 percent nylon. It is a taffeta feeling material. It is really soft. So on warmer days if you are hanging out in it, it is not going to feel clammy at all. It is a really breathable fabric. And, again, it is just really soft on the skin.
It packs down to be really small into this little pocket, into this little stuff sack here. The stuff sack is sewn on to the hammock so you are not going to lose it. And if you turn this inside out, it makes a nice little pocket. So it is a great place to store valuables, maybe a cell phone or a book or something like that that you want to get your hands on quickly while you are hanging out in the hammock.
We will take a look at the set up and the other features.
The way the hammock attaches to the straps is really simple. It is really a great design by Eagles Nest. And you can see the fabric here bunches up on the corners and you don’t have a lot of little straps going back and forth like I have seen on other hammocks. You can roll this up, pack it down and be really small. And it is not going to get tangled up. So you don’t have to worry about that. It is a really simple set up. So you know you have the peace of mind that you are going to be able to set it up the right way every time.
And here you have a really durable aluminum wire gate carabineer. It makes it really simple to attach to the straps. So this piece and this cord right here is really durable as well. So that comes with the hammock. You do need to buy the straps separately. Eagles Nest Outfitters has a couple of different straps that you can purchase to easily attach your hammock to a tree or to a fixed point.
With the additional fabric in the DoubleNest hammock, you have lots of room to sprawl. So that makes it a lot more stable and a lot more comfortable. As you can see, I am just kind of sitting in it now. I have sat in a DoubleNest hammock cross legged. There is a lot of different ways you can lay in it and hang out in it and it makes it just really, really comfortable.
What I normally do is position it a comfortable height off of the ground. You don’t want it to be too high for danger of falling out and that kind of thing. So just a comfortable distance above the ground that you know you are not going to be hitting the ground when you are laying in it. We suggest just sitting in it first, getting comfortable and then you just kind of pivot and you can relax, lay down and enjoy your time inside your DoubleNest hammock.
