comfy and dry
I've taken this camping a few times so far. I really like it. I even sleep on my side in this. I haven't tried sleeping on my stomach but I'm sure it would be uncomfortable. It's hard to tip it over. I've slept in the rain and been bone dry all night. It comes in pieces (hammock, dry fly, bug net, etc...) so it's very easy to pack. Also each bag has a compression strap. I recommend the ProStraps because they are longer. In the cool and windy weather I recommend extra layers (blankets/cloths) because you are more exposed to the cold air. Also it takes a little more time to set this up than a tent although not much longer. If you're a backpacker you can lay your gear under you on the ground or hang another hammock underneath the one you sleep in for your gear. Also the attached stuff sacks are good places to store a head lamp and any other gear on the hammock.

ENO is a great company! Thanks to Altrec for carrying this brand at good prices. This system is excellent for one or two people and is a viable, reasonably comfortable alternative to a tent. Plus, it is a lot of fun! All materials seem well made. The accessories for this system are very cool, too. You do have a choice of overhead rain tarps with this system, I recommend the DryFly. It is broader than the other choices and, therefore, will provide better rain protection (even if it is a little heavier in weight). Overall, excellent, innovative product.

We love it!!
We bought this hammock system for our daughter who loves the outdoors. She is in Seminary and sets it up outside her dorm room and studies in it. She loves it.

DoubleNest is PERFECT for couples!
My Fiance and I went camping for 4 days in north GA and this set up was the best...may want to bring a tent for privacy...but this was the best sleep setup ever! Never sleeping in a tent again...Waaay better than the soggy rocky ground! We set up camp well after dark, drank a bottle of wine, and I was still able to set the system up correctly in under 5 mins!

Super set up
I just spent a week camping in my ENO double hammock and dry fly set up. It was heaven, even when it rained I stayed dry, sorry for the other soggy guys that went with me in their tents! Very easy to set up and take down.
