Eno Singlenest Hammock
We all enjoy the feeling of simply being outdoors and taking in the fresh air, but there is little to compare to the sensation of sleeping or resting peacefully in a hammock while doing so. You can enjoy a good book, the sounds of nature and the feeling of a cool breeze while the sun warms you. It is an ideal feeling even for those of us who prefer the shade because it is open and relaxing.
It also is a great way to relax the ever-energized minds of kids with autism or social anxiety. They get to be alone in their own way and work out their frustrations in a healthy manner by enjoying the comfort of the hugging sensation without having to deal with a physical touch which can make the anxiety or tension worse. With both of these aspects in mind, we dive in to see what sets this hammock apart from the others we have written about and researched to allow you to make the best decision for your needs.
Great for kids
Comfortable in warmer conditions
Great for smaller settings
Smaller in size
Doesn’t come with set-up equipment
While you can pair any company product with another, it often provides better and easier setup if you hold to the same place for both parts. Eno also offers freestanding equipment to hand their hammocks from so you don’t have to turn to hope the area you are in has the perfect space for it between trees or even the poles of your front porch. Of course, if you are camping, you may just want to stick to finding those trees.
They also offer carrying bags, though, like most, this one comes with its own attached to the nest itself. It all depends on your feelings on whether to stick just to what you are given. Or look for something you feel is more appropriate for your needs. They even provide the tarps to make this your ‘tent on the go’ if that’s what you want it to become.
So, what is 70D high tenacity nylon taffeta, and what makes it so important to mention? The most basic way to describe what this particular material is would be to give you a product that it is most often used for: parachutes. This means you can rely on it to hold up under many conditions and not fall apart.
The carabiners, the hooks for the suspension equipment, are made of aluminum wire gate, which we will explain here as well. It is a type of hook which is built to withstand heavy abuse and last while remaining lightweight and easy to use. This is a key point for this company- quality without depending on heavy materials to do so.
Capacity and Length
If you are a smaller person, or it is a child who is going to use the hammock, having it be large enough to fit a tall and heavy adult or two may be overdoing things. That being said, the design is suited for those under five feet tall, as it is only 9’ long including the narrow areas where it attaches, but it can hold up to 400 pounds easily which makes it ideal for kids and smaller adults. When purchasing an item like this, it is extremely important to take into consideration the specs and use you need it for.
With those of us who desire a hammock, but have very little room to set one up, this is the perfect answer. You get a high-quality product that is best suited for smaller frameworks to use. While you could use it for camping, it is simply ideal for cramped area use, which is not a commonly considered issue by other companies and their products.
It is also not made to trap heat in the end but can quickly get too hot if you are in it during the height of a summer day. What this is best on its own for are cool but not cold days. When it does start to get chillier out, if you want to stay warm, it is suggested that you take a sleeping bag or some quilts to stay warm. It remains as comfortable size-wise no matter what the weather, but it is definitely not intended for extremes, but then most hammocks aren’t.
The rainfly goes over your nest and allows you to sleep comfortably and protected in the light rain while in your hammock. The lack of treatment is not necessarily a downfall, but it would have been a good idea- and other products sold by this company do offer such, just not this one from what we could find.
Going beyond the design, this type also offers the ability to get a more personalized appearance as well. It can be difficult to tell which belongs to whom when everyone’s hammock looks identical, but this one has multiple choices for color and pattern. With twenty-two variations to choose from, you are sure to find one that suits you better than the rest.
Rather than just sticking to one main solid and a different color trim as your only options, this company is also known for giving their hammocks a tri-color look, and this is one of the products that they do this with. We could list all of them here for you, but that would take several paragraphs just to get through all of them. Instead, we will list for you what colors are available in total.
This model offers black, grey, blues, yellow, red, orange, green, purple and even pink in different combinations. Currently, however, there are three combinations of the twenty-two that aren’t available as this article was written. These three are grey with blue trim, blue with green/teal trim, and light blue with dark blue trim.
The triple stitching and the durability of the fabric itself, being the nature of something meant to carry a lot of weight in varying conditions, guarantee that if you take care of it properly it will last you a long time. Those who have purchased it already have stated outright that, due to how easy it is to use and care for, they feel it will last years before needing to be replaced. Unless purposely cut or directly misused it doesn’t tear easily and it has already served several people more than one season of enjoyment.
If you feel safer up in the trees rather than in a tent, this could be ideal once you buy the rest of the accessories and keep you out of reach of most creepy crawlies and harder objects on or in the ground. It also makes for a great way to rest easy on your porch. It will protect you from the milder cool weather, but you may want to have a blanket to curl with the inside of it once the temperature starts to fall.
Buying both the rainfly as well as the mosquito net gives your time of rest higher quality enjoyment, and once it does get colder a simple quilt and pillow can grant you the extra warmth you seek. Otherwise, be looking to use this model for warmer and gentler weather.
If you want to make sure you are ready for a nice and comfortable outdoor rest, this is likely to be one of your best options at a very affordable range for your wallet. Each one comes with a two-year manufacturing warranty against any damage that comes by defect, and that can be a wonderful thing when you want to know your hammock will be there for the long term.
