For the past few years, our family has been doing mostly car camping with a large tent, sleeping bags, cots, etc. Now that the kids are a little older, I have been wanting to trim down our gear and lighten things up. For that reason, I have been looking at hammocks to replace our traditional tent and sleeping bags/air mattress set up. Eagle Nest Outfitters recently sent me their DoubleNest Hammock and Atlas Straps to review. So today I’m sharing that review with you plus a few advantages of hammock camping.
The Eno Hammock Atlas Straps System is the simply the best hammock hanging strap system out there. And that is because they are made of polyester and do not stretch. Oh wait! They have more places to hook a hammock than anyone else (15ea =30ea for the set). And they are longer than most other hammock system straps (9′). Together they support up to 400 lbs. And set up is easy, just slide one end through the loop on the other end, hook the hammock to it and you are done. And you didn’t even have to tie a knot. So if you need to hang a hammock, this is it! It does not get any easier. Promise.
Like I mentioned above, recently sent me their DoubleNest Hammock and Atlas Straps to try out. Here is what I thought about this hammock and it’s suspension system.
Stay tuned for an upcoming contest where we will be giving away the DoubleNest hammock and Atlas straps featured in this review!
