Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice hammock so far. I just purchased this hammock yesterday and i set it up in my yard to try it out. My brothers and I all laid down in it and surprisingly, it was extremely comfortable considering it's 6.5 ounce weight. I'm a big guy at 265 pounds and 6'1'' so i was concerned about length and support but i didn't have a problem with this hammock. It doesn't 'suck you in' like other hammocks do but (so far) it's built well enough that i don't feel like i have to baby it. I bought the Atlas Suspension to compliment it which made setting the entire thing up in under two minutes. Pretty nice! If you're watching ounces, this is the hammock to get.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ripped on first trip The positive and (I think) negative thing about this hammock: Weight. I got it to take backpacking, and the "sub7" oz weight is what drew me in. But on the second day of use, it ripped (see photo). The nylon is such light weight (that's how you get "sub 7") that it is simply delicate, at least from my experience. I weigh 180lbs for reference. I returned it for a refund and I am not sure what I'm going to do next. I love having a hammock with me, but I'm very pack-weight conscious and a hammock is a luxury; I will not carry at 20oz hammock. I may give this one another try, but since it is the end of the season I'll wait until next spring and see what is available then. Anyone make a Tyvek hammock?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hammock ever Well the obvious is light and small. I mean really light and small, literally down to a sandwich size and really easy to stuff in the attached pouch. Featherweight binders apparently made for this purpose and dyneema lines can't be beat. But the really great surprise is that it is the most comfortable hammock I have ever owned and I have tried a bunch. No seams so you can move about comfortably on the diagonal and silky smooth. With an incredibly light fabric I expect to be careful but so far no indication its not strong and durable. Just don't abuse it. I paired it up with their Helios ultralight webbing and dyneems lines and this rig is going with me everywhere !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPER LIGHT, a little warm When it comes to comfort, this hammock is excellent. Coming from a Double Nest, I was a little wary, but as soon as I laid in it the first time I knew I was going to be just fine. I'm 5'6 130 lbs and had plenty of room from head to toe and width was not too narrow at all. The only thing I noticed was that it wasn't quite as breathable as the fabric used in the Single and Double Nests. Don't get me wrong, I still LOVE the new fabric, just not as comfortable when it's 90+ degrees, as your sweat doesn't dry and your legs/arms/whatever kind of stick to the hammock. Thankfully fall is right around the corner! Going to be my go-to hammock from now on, though. Can't beat the weight, and the comfort lever can't be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everybody needs one of these This hammock is perfect. It's lightweight, easy to set up and strong. I've wanted a hammock to use for backpacking for some time now but never wanted to haul the extra weight (I prefer sleeping in a tent). I now have the best of both worlds as the entire thing with Helios straps is around 1lb. I can lounge in my hammock around the trails and sleep in my tent. I've found myself using the hammock many times beyond camping. Whenever I go on a trip I throw it in my bag and find a place to set it up. I've even used it in the backyard while on my laptop while working from home. I'm 6' & 150lbs and find it very comfortable. It's not as roomy as a single nest or double nest but I actually like the fit better. Great product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ripped after third use I had this product for under 2 weeks and it ripped after the third use. I had read other reviews about the ENO Sub7 ripping but I am a smaller guy (5'7" 150 lbs) and very careful with my gear so I figured I could make it work (I have a Sierra Designs Flashlight Tent from 1993 that all the zippers still work in). I was carefully getting out of the hammock after the third nights sleep and the hammock ripped right under me as I was swinging my legs out to stand up. I will return to REI and get the ENO Tech Nest that seems to be a better compromise of weight and durability.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weight savings done wrong. This hammock was highly disappointing. The concept is phenomenal, a lightweight hammock setup for backpacking is a great idea. However, ENO decided that they should sacrifice comfort to shed weight. As a 6' person, this hammock was simply not long enough and nowhere near wide enough to comfortably sleep through the night. Laying diagonally in the hammock was just not possible. The width of this hammock seemed to be less than that of a singlenest. That's not how weight savings should be accomplished. The rest of the ENO products I have owned have been great, but this one let me down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased for UL backpacking I purchased this hamoc for ultralight backpacking, and at 7 oz you can't beat it! I'm 6' 200 lbs and fit relatively comfortable. If you're a larger person, or prefer comfort and can deal with a few extra ounces I may recommend going for the single or double nest. The ENO Sub7 gets the job done, and I have no reservations about the material strength supporting my weight. However if you're looking for luxury go with a size up. Rating 5 Stars because the quality is great and it performs as advertised.

I'm a 6'5" and change. Will this be long enough for me? I'm using it on an 5 day backpacking trip.

Asked by: PaulBates
It may be difficult for you to comfortably lie in this hammock, as many taller testers have reported. While it is technically 105 inches long, saying that means you'll fit is utter nonsense - very disappointing coming from REIservice. Anyone who has laid in a hammock knows you can't lie from end to end of a hammock - it needs gather and droop room on each end!

Does this have the capability to keep you dry during rain? and could I use this as a tarp without damaging it if it was not raining?

Asked by: ELT
No, it is made of a breathable nylon. No waterproofing has been applied. The hammock could work as a tarp, but REI does not recommend it.

Do you have to use the Helios straps with the sub7 or can you use the atlas straps and witch one do you recommend 

Asked by: Luke546
You can use either the Helios or the Atlas straps with the Sub7 Hammock. The Helios straps are recommended as they are ultralight and this is an ultralight hammock.

Does this hammock come with the straps needed to connect it to trees?  What other equipment do you need to use this hammock?

Asked by: MrsFrzl
The Sub7 Hammock does not come with straps. The ENO Atlas Hammock Suspension System would be a great choice and all you need to hang the hammock.
