Before I get into the review I'd like to go over why I think that ENO's are a great place to start when taking up hammock-ing. The ENO Doublenest come in at a very reasonable price ($64.95) for a true quality hammock. Eagles Nest Outfitter supplies tarps, bug nets, and underquilts to upgrade all of their hammocks. So a new comer can purchase a model such as the Doublenest and then upgrade the same hammock as the user's needs may change. A super user friendly system that is very versatile.
The Doublenest as the name implies, can hold two people (or as you will see in my photo's any gear that you may not want to sit on the ground). They come in a variety of colors from Rastafarian as well as other bright colors or more subdued colors. This makes choosing a hammock system to fit your lifestyle much easier.
The Doublenest measures 6'8" x 9'4" and has plenty or room (as you can see in the picture to the right). The sides of the hammock hug your body well, ensuring that you won't spill out of the sides. It also offered plenty room for two of us in the hammock without sacrificing comfort. The Doublenest weighs a mere 22 oz's and stores inside the affixed stuff sack. The stuff sack has built in compression straps that compresses the hammock to the size of a coconut. The Doublenest also comes standard with nautical grade carabiners to link up with the suspension system.

had enough room.
I do recommend getting the Doublenest over the Singlenest. Why? The Doublenest is roughly $10 more bucks, it gives you the possibility to share the hammock, as well as to store gear in the hammock with you (as seen here to your right). Laying with my mountain pack and I still had enough room and was very comfortable. With the ability to hold up to 400 lbs and triple stitched seams the there's no need to worry about the integrity of the Doublenest hammock system.
