    I still sleep in my ENO

    And Iím 6í3Ē!

    Itís small, donít get me wrong, and honestly I use it more for lounging, but my SuperSub that Iíve had for about 4 years now has treated me very well, introducing me to the world of hammock camping. I also have a newish Kammok Roo Double, and Firebelly UQ that Iím testing, but eventually will get an 11-12í HG, DH, or SLD bug net version going.

    I also use an Ember 2, which Iíve retired, and I use the Eno Guardian SL primarily. I have an original Guardian but I prefer the wide mouth opening better. Makes it easy to wrap everything in and retract it when I want.

    Anyway, I still like my setup, even if there isnít much love here. Over the next few weeks Iíll go head to head with my Kammok setup, and eventually these will probably all be handed down to my kids.

    I still use m8ne often for day hikes or just relaxing in the yard. They are a little small but comfortable. I have several name brands but still like my ENO starter.

    I started off with an ENO doublenest, bought another. I use one for camping, the other I have slept in nightly for 8 months now.

    Just because some or many do not like them doesn't mean there is anything "wrong" with them. If you are comfortable in them for your type of use, then nothing else matters! It's great to have gear that actually gets used

    I hear you! I'm also about 6'1" and my doublenest works great. Two questions for you: what ridegline length do you use on it, and for the Ember 2, do you ever have issues laying diagonally with it? I find it's either covering my shoulders or my feet, but not both. I'd hate to think it's just bad design and due to my ridegline being too short, hence putting me at too much of a diagonal. Thoughts?

    Thanks!!

    Ridgeline is 93Ē for a 112Ē hammock (9í4Ē). The ridgeline is about the only thing that keeps this working to sleep in consistently Iíve found.

    As for the Ember 2... unfortunately Iíve given up on mine short of modding it. Itís cut to only work for lounging (not laying flat on a diagonal), which is very limiting. Iíve since upgraded to a Kammok Firebelly UQ that I use on this and my Kammok Roo Double.



    That UQ and others designed for diagonal lays work really well. Here Iím testing different connection points (toggles versus carabiners) for hanging gear like shoes off dog bones and backpack off carabiner or toggles directly.

    So long story short, is ditch the Ember 2, or sell it, or keep it knowing itís only good for lounge mode. Iíd also get an Amsteel structural ridgeline in 93Ē from Jared at SLD, or Dutch. Youíll be very happy, and while itís not as deep between the ridgeline and hammock like an 11í, itís still a massive upgrade for under $10.

    Well you pretty much just confirmed what problems I was having with the Ember 2. Oh well. I put up a video on YouTube (https://youtu.be/zJGsC1MmH7U) with an idea of how to force the UQ to lay diagonally with you but it's proved to be more trouble than it's worth. But yeah, I agree and think I'm gonna have to upgrade. And 93" is just about where I have my ridgeline set with utility cord, might look into the Amsteel.
