Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO) SingleNest Hammock Review
The Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO) SingleNest Hammock is a popular hammock that serves as a good lightweight hammock for camping or casual use. It weighs in at 17 oz, but is a bit narrower than we’d like. It’s easy to set up and take down when using daisy chain style tree straps. Made with durable parachute nylon, it is a good choice for a 3 season hammock, with the narrow frame making it a bit less suitable for winter weather.

Comfort: The ENO SingleNest Hammock wasn’t the most comfortable hammock, but it was a good balance of weight, ease of use and comfort. The smaller size of the SingleNest makes it a little less relaxing to use than larger hammocks like the Serac Sequoia, although some may find the comfort tradeoff acceptable in exchange for the smaller size.
In the summer, the SingleNest performed well enough with just a sleeping bag and pad, but colder temperatures would require more accessories.
As a casual lounger, the SingleNest performed well. The smaller size made it easy to use the hammock as a chair and it’s a great piece of camp furniture if you do not intend to use it as your primary shelter.
Weight and Size: The ENO SingleNest tops out at 17oz, making it a fairly light hammock at face value. However, keep in mind this is without any suspension systems or upgrades such as a bug net or rain fly. It supports up to 400 pounds with its durable parachute nylon.
Durability: With triple stitched seams and stretchy parachute nylon, the Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO) SingleNest Hammock is durable and performs well in all conditions. There was some slight fraying on the ropes and pouch, but otherwise the hammock held up beautifully. Expect to get great mileage out of your SingleNest.
Versatility: The Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO) SingleNest Hammock does not come with any suspension and you won’t be able to set it up right from the get go. Daisy chain tree straps can be purchased from many different manufacturers including ENO, but that brings the total price to set up your hammock to just a shade under $100. Additional rainflys and bug nets can also be purchased.
The positive features about this hammock is that the SingleNest is smaller than most hammocks which makes it fit easily between trees that would normally be too close together. It’s also easy to get a good hang when there is less material to mess around with. Generally speaking, the SingleNest is a versatile hammock, once you purchase the accessories to surround it with.
At its price point, the Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO) SingleNest Hammock is a bit expensive, especially when compared to the Serac Classic and Bear Butt hammocks which are cheaper and include the daisy chain tree straps for set up straight out of the box. However, with a huge range of colors to choose from and the versatility of a smaller hammock, the SingleNest can be a good choice if you’re looking for a colorful alternative to the larger hammocks that dominate the market.
