Material-wise, craftsmanship, and overall quality of the products seem to be very similar to each other (Eno Double Nest vs. Grand Trunk Double). Meaning that both were excellently manufactured, the parachute nylon material felt strong and sturdy, while feeling cool to the touch and comfortable against the skin. Both hammocks came with sturdy carabiners. While only the Grand Trunk came with a little cordage so you can hang your hammock right away (Eno does not come with any additional hanging cordage). While cords are great to see what your hammock looks like hung up, it is a little rough on the trees; consider investing in some tree straps (will review next).
What makes the Grand Trunk Double a better option over the Eno Double Nest, for me is the fact that it is much more comfortable to me. I carry have a large frame and the extra foot of length that the Grand Trunk Double (10.5') over the Eno Double Nest (9.5') makes a world of difference. I understand that there are larger hammocks on the market, but my primary needs involve backpacking and ease of use. Larger hammocks than the Grand Trunk Double tend to be a bit heavier and more difficult to find prime hanging spots (the Eno Double Nest is much easier to find spots to hang than the Grand Trunk Double).
A few weeks ago, I took the Grand Trunk Double on a three day trip to Havasupai Falls. Not only did the hammock hold up. It was the most comfortable camping experience I've ever had. While I won't be throwing away my tent anytime soon, as much of my camping (50%) is either at over 9000' (meaning fragile trees) or in the desert, I can't see myself using anything else but the hammock where it is a viable option. Please note, that there is a learning curve to sleeping in a hammock. Do your research and practice sleeping in it by taking your naps in the hammock for a couple weeks prior to your trip.
Overall, I love this hammock and would highly recommend it for hangers who are about 6' tall with large frames.
The Grand Trunk hammock is made of a sturdy rip-stop nylon parachute material. It weighs in at only 20 oz, very respectable for a good backpacking hammock. It fits very nicely into the stuff sack, which is integrated into the hammock material, making it pretty difficult to lose. Two aluminum caribiners are included, and are already attached to the tie cords.
This hammock has tons of extra material, making it easy to get into and out of. It is also plenty big for 2 adults, or 3 children. I am 5'9" and fit easily inside. Several of my friends also found it very comfortable, all of which are well over 6 feet tall.
I've now used the hammock 4-5 times and absolutely love it. No sign of any ripping or premature wearing. The only modification I made was to replace the supplied caribiner with a lightweight climbing caribiner.
Love the hammock. Highly recommend for general use or for hiking in the back woods.
Their customer service is like no other and they will always try and help you reach a solution or just send you a new hammock, no charge;)
Even though they already have one of the highest lb. testing ratings of any double hammock out there (400lbs), I have put over 600lbs of people (4 big guys) in this hammock! It wasn't very comfortable, but that's not the point... it didn't break! Not even a rip! Now that's quality!
So they are made with great material and come in many color options, but even better is the fact that they try to be user friendly in the fact that they give you two 5-foot pieces of strong paracord! So it's not the bee's knees.. but it's something and it's more than ENO gives. You can set this hammock up right out of the box (or bag rather). The paracord is strong enough to hold any weight that the hammock can handle, but it is kinda short and heavy for long-term advanced hammocking. For any beginner, this may be all they need.
It also comes with strong steel carabiners. These are heavy duty and will hold any weight you put in the hammock, but this also means that they are physically heavy as well. Again, for beginners this could be a great set-up.
You can also simply buy either the ENO Atlas Straps or the Grand Trunk "Trunk Straps" which are currently on pre-order but will be out soon. these are essecially the same strap, but Grand Trunk offers different colors while ENO only has black.
But for more advanced I would look into buying or making the famous "Whoopie Slings" out of Amsteel Blue (Which is a braided rope that is as strong as steel!). You can then use a number of different attachment types including aluminum carabiners, whoopie hooks, or even a Marlin-Spike knot with a toggle, among many other options. This will give you the best versatility and will be the most light out of any of the above suspension options, but will also be the most expensive.
This hammock is definitely big enough for two people to cuddle or even lounge, but will probably not be the best for two people to sleep in overnight. When hammocking, it is best to sleep diagonal in symmetrical hammocks (like this one and all other "double" hammocks). Sleeping diagonal will allow one to get flat and will be better for their back, neck, legs, etc.
I am a 6' 0' 270lb. guy who fits in this hammock very well, along with a possible friend or two or my "cuddle-buddy" :)
In my opinion, this is the NUMBER 1 best beginner hammock on the market! It can easily be "transformed" into a great advanced hammock as well, but this could get pricey depending on what you want to change about the actual hammock.
Bottom line, this hammock will do the job and do it well.
In my experience, do your homework, look up videos and/or forum posts and collect research before you purchase any product. It is usually always worth it and it will always pay off. :)
A couple notes:
I purchased a separate daisy chain suspension system. I highly suggest it as the system that comes with the hammock is not very useful. (I used the cord as a clothesline.)
For sleeping in it at night, mosquitoes can bite through the hammock. It does pull over and close nicely to prevent bugs from coming in the top.
Build quality however seems amazing. It's well built and the materials seem solid and I have no doubt this will last a long time. I also love how compact it is when stored in it's pouch. (Which is attached to the hammock to I won't lose it either... genius!)
The "Double" part is true... I can fit another person. But to get comfortable with two people is quite a feat. My wife and I tried to lounge in this the other day and after some awkward readjusting we sorta made it work. I prefer it with one person if comfort is your aim with this.
Overall I am giving it 4 stars because it's great quality and my gripe about the flap might just be my own novice approach to using it. Thanks!
