- All in one hammock and bugnet - Innovative combination of market leading ENO hammock with bug net. The net is 950 square inches and the netting is high quality, protecting you from most bugs and insects. The bug net can also be detatched from the hammock with ease.
- Integrated full length side zipper - Getting in and out of this hammock is a simple task. The full-length zipper has double pulls on each end. There are also glow-in-the-dark zipper pulls on the inside.
- Lightweight fabric - The hammock material is 210D nylon taffeta ripstop which is strong and durable but quite light. It is also very breathable so ensures a comfortable sleeping experience.
- Manageable size and weight - A standard ENO Doublenest with a Guardian bug net weighs around 8 oz heavier than the JungelNest. It also packs down to around the same size as a Doublenest.
- Easy to make adjustments from inside - The bug net isn't attached to a ridge line making it very easy for you to make adjustments. It also has bug net pull outs accessible from the inside, so you can make more changes.
- Accessible pockets - Storage is always a valuable addition to a camping hammock. There is a pocket inside that you can store items you need to access quickly like phone or torch.
- Bugnet can sag - The bug net can occasionally sag into your face which is uncomfortable when you are sleeping. You can use the pull-out close to your shoulder to get more clearance without losing any protection.
- Doesn't come with tree friendly straps - Straps are sold separately for all ENO hammocks. Buy ENO Eagles Nest Outfitters - Atlas Hammock Suspension System (FFP) for an easy setup anywhere!
- No tarp included - You will need a tarp if you want to be comfortable in wetter conditions. An under or top quilt for warmth may also be required to hold heat.
The ENO JungleNest is a great combo of hammock and bug net. You will be very impressed with the design, quality and attention to detail. It's standout features are high quality material for both hammock and net. Add in clever integrated zippers, shock cord attachments for the bug net it offers great value for money.
Expect an excellent sleeping experience, protected from bugs and insects but with no loss of comfort. The ENO JungleNest is a far better system than doublenest + guardian bug net. It's much quicker to set up than the doublenest/guardian combo, not to mention much lighter, which is important for backpacking.
