Just received my Hobo Hammock Skeeto Shield hammock, and it is awesome!! It’s the newest product in their hammock line up, and it is a double nest hammock with integrated mosquito netting. I’ve only had the opportunity to briefly set up and try out the hammock but it does not disappoint. Sturdy hammock, easy to use straps, and the integrated mosquito net makes it even better. The netting is zippered on one side and sewn into the hammock on the other. I questioned the ability to use the hammock without “tenting” the mosquito netting — emailed HoboHammocks around 7PM Eastern time and in less than an hour received a reply to my question (huge kudos there with the customer support). They recommend flipping the hammock so you do not lay directly on the netting if it’s not in use, thus protecting the netting.
My youngest has a double nest ENO, and at first glance and use I see nothing readily that makes the ENO any better than the Hobo. Honestly the Hobo seems (in my opinion) to be the better built of the two. In doing a comparison of the hammocks we have in our household:
Weight rating… Eno: they say 400 pounds
Hobo: their site says 540 pounds
Cost… Eno double nest: $69.95
Hobo double nest: $59.00 (with mosquito net $69.00)
Hang straps… Eno: not included — extra $19.95 and up depending on strap
Hobo: strap included
Carabiners… Eno: included aluminum wire gate
Hobo: included steel — doesn’t look as “fancy” as the Eno carabiner, but perfectly functional
Warranty… Eno: 2 years
Helping someone in need… Eno: nothing I know of
Hobo: provides a homeless meal for every hammock sold
While the ENO we own is certainly an excellent hammock, the Hobo definitely packs a whole lot more bang for the buck — provides for the community — and WOW their customer service is the bomb!! If your looking for a hammock, I’d definitely recommend the Hobo.
Please note, I am receiving no monetary or product compensation for this review (although I’m always open to receiving hammock love). It is based solely on product that were purchased privately and are being used in a family setting.
I’ve had my hammock for about 2/3 years now. Always stays in my car or on my porch and has been used across the country at this point. I have even bought my nieces and nephews some because it’s so easy and flexible/durable enough for them to use on their own and leave it or pack it up.
One of the nicest things I’ve realized about hobo hammock specifically is you DONT NEED ANYTHING ELSE! Everything you need for a quick chill is in the bag. Other brands you’ll get the hammock for the same price, then you gotta buy the straps and then the carabiners.
Ive loved the mosquito net for many reasons. The main reason I bought the mosquito net one was for camping reasons. The cords included help you not feel enclosed and the net actually works! Slept in it too many times to count and never had a problem with rodents or bugs.
After all my usage and times leaving it out I’ve never had rips stretch marks or any damage to it, plus I just read recently you have a lifetime warranty? Haven’t read much about that but still haven’t needed it so ????????♀️
