“DoubleNest Hammock Sleeps 2, Holds 400 lbs, Stuffs in a Pack.

There’s nothing better after a long day on the trail than relaxing in a hammock under the stars. (Especially when you’ve got someone special next to you.) But there’s nothing worse than hauling a big, bulky, heavy hammock along in your gear pack.

The DoubleNest hammock from Eagle’s Nest Outfitters takes care of both issues. Constructed of strong, breathable, tightly woven nylon (that means no waffle marks on your back after a trail nap), it measures a huge 9’4” x 6’2” and can support up to 400 lbs. Plenty of room for you and your hiking date.

But as big and roomy as it is, the DoubleNest weights a featherlight 22 oz. and stuffs down into its own attached compression sack, where it takes up less space in your pack than a couple of softballs.

Use the attached super strong nautical grade line and carabineers to hang the DoubleNest with your own line, or grab a set of ENO’s Atlas straps, designed make set up of the hammock quick and easy. The 11 oz. straps are constructed with 15 loops on each side to provide the perfect option for hanging, and are made of a poly-filament webbing to prevent them from providing extra and unnecessary give. Because nothing ruins a good double hammock afternoon like a droopy line.”
