What is more important when weight is in question is the type of material you use for mounting the hammock on. Lighter and breakable materials might collapse under the weight of a heavier person.
This way you’ll keep in touch with the latest news and you’ll always be the first to know if there’s a discount on some products.
The hammock stand is made to be easy to set up. It comes with all the needed parts and a guide for easy mounting. Just be sure you have all the parts needed to tie the hammock on the stand, things like a suspension system, straps, and other accessories needed for a comfortable camping.
You might ask why it is the same weight? It’s a good question – it is because the ENO hammocks use the same material that has the same breaking point no matter the size of it.
The difference between the single and the double is the room for one or two persons. The double can fit two persons without any problem, but you will have to know about the weight limit and do the math.
You’ll need to drill two holes on your wall, place the hanging kit and voila, you have an indoor hammock. When you want to go camping, just take it off the hangers and you’re good to go.
Rain won’t damage it, but repeated exposure to rain and sun is bad for it. For example, it isn’t wise to let your hammock hanged in the yard during the year no matter the conditions.
It will soon be ruined. On the other hand, there’s no problem for occasional washing in the machine and using it again.
Many people wonder if it is comfortable enough to sleep in an ENO hammock. The answer is that it is comfortable, but you need to know how to do it properly. The secret is in getting a good angle.
The hammock should be loosened and the person sleeping in it should place the feet a little on the side and not at the center of the ENO while placing the upper part of the body and head on the opposite side. This way you’ll feel like you’re sleeping in a normal bed.
Yes there is. This type of ENO hammock is usually called a double nest. It is pretty similar to single nest hammocks, but the difference is that there is more space when it is mounted.
When it’s not used it looks pretty much the same as the single one. However, two people can easily relax in it.
The rain fly is good choice but what we really think will do the job is a tarp. Just make sure the size of it is big enough for your hammock. You can’t buy a double nest ENO and a small size tarp.
A good choice is the DD Superlight tarp because of its small weight and the dimensions that are outstanding. It’s 9.8 by 9.5 feet and can be setup in various different ways depending on what you need at the moment. It has 19 attachment points that will give you anything from a standard hammock shelter to a wide ground cover from rain.
Putting up an ENO hammock is really easy. First, make sure you have all the parts you need – the actual hammock and the ropes. Tie the straps around the trees you chose as most suitable for your hammock. Then connect the straps to the ends of the hammock. That’s it.
Of course, there are tips and tricks on how to do it better, so if you want to know all about the hammock mounting, read this article.
No, ENO hammocks does not come with straps. The best straps that fit ENO hammocks are the Atlas suspension straps that are offered together with the hammocks, but you’ll need to pay extra for them.
Of course, you can always use something else that is also good. Please learn all about hammock straps here.
Sure. The bug net can be very important in areas that are wet and hot. Mosquitoes can be a real trouble so it’s necessary to have this with you.
You can make a bug net by yourself and it will surely work, but if you don’t like getting into this problem, you can always purchase some of the nets available online.
Yes, ENO offers a sleeping bag with its hammock models. The sleeping bag can keep you warm on temperatures as low as 30 degrees Fahrenheit if you combine it with an underquilt.
People that love adventures, hiking in all weather conditions, mountain climbing and spending days in nature, this is another part of the equipment that’s absolutely necessary.
ENO straps are specially made to be as simple as possible and used without too much trouble. They have a webbing and a couple of opening on it that allow you to tie it the way you need it.
At the end of the webbing, there’s another bigger opening. Simply put one end through the openings and tie to the tree or the object you’re using. Then use the hanger to tie the hammock to the strap.
The ENO profly is really simple to be set up. All you need to do is tie the top of the rain fly to the same tree or object as the hammock so it can protect you from the rain, of course. Then secure the four angles. The best way is to stake the pegs into the ground, thus hold the ropes tight.
Also, make sure you find rocks that will help you do a better job with secure the pegs and the rope if the wind becomes a threat to the profly.
Yes, ENO hammocks come in all sorts of color combinations and designs. Usually, the ENO hammocks have at least two colored combinations but there are some with even more than 4.
Some standard designs like patriot or navy are part of the offer, and some of the most used colors are blue and its variations, black and grey. Of course, red, green, yellow, purple, orange, and other colors are also available. You just need to know what suits you the best.
Even though it might seem complex to setup an ENO bugnet it really isn’t very hard to do it. All you need to do is set a ridge line over the hammock and then put the bug net through the hammock.
Once you do it, look for the clips on the net. They are supposed to be placed on the ridge line. This is very easy to do. When you see how the bug net is placed over the hammock, tight it on both ends, get inside the hammock and zip the net.
