Made of nylon, weighing less than a pound and a half, the Eagles Nest Outfitters DoubleNest Hammock is designed for family-friendly car camping and backpacking. We, along with our kids, loved it! With a 400 pound capacity, heavy duty triple-stitched seams, and simple set-up, it’s a guaranteed favorite for everyone, except for the inevitable squabbling over whose turn it is. 🙂
Carabiner attachments mean easy-on and off, with no worries about knots coming loose or becoming impossible to untie. We took our hammock all over the place, on walks and bike rides to neighborhood parks, in our backyard, and on our camping trip to Ottawa Lake during The North Face Endurance Challenge. Since it compresses neatly in its attached stuff sack, it’s a cinch to toss it into the camping box, into a backpack, or just hang off the handlebars if you want.
To make things even simpler, and to give yourself WAY more options on where to hang it, get the SlapStrapPro hammock suspension system. At a half pound, they don’t add much in the way of weight, but allow you to hang the hammock between trees that are too wide for the hammock itself. Flat webbing is tree-friendly, while sewn-on loops allow the hammock carabiners easy attachment at a variety of tree space widths.
This is truly a must-have for anyone who spends time in the outdoors, especially if you have kids. Not only is it a romantic spot to snuggle with your significant other, it gives the kids a place to play or use as a swing. Turn it into a couch and sit back in front of the fire (not too close!) or lay back and laze away an afternoon. Lightweight, simple to use, and totally portable, it’s a win in every way.
