Now I can use my ENO & Hennessy hammocks anywhere I wish, no trees nor straps needed.
Eight pieces snap together easily and I’m ready to hang my hammock. Its sturdy construction allows it to remain stable and balanced on different terrains, as I chase the ever-moving shade in my backyard. Its shapely aesthetic and powder-coated steel mean I can leave it assembled in my backyard (wife-approved).
Also, my hammock settles low enough to convert to a swing. And my dog can easily hop in – important conditioning for when we go hammock camping.
Still, the Solopod is not as portable as I believed from the packaging. In total, the 8 pieces weigh 58 pounds & are of an awkward size. I won’t wrestle with this in order to bring it along to the beach or any locale that’s a significant distance from the car. This needs the convenience of a wheeled carry bag, similar to the quick shades.
Also, I like the convenience of a shade made-to-order for this product. In lieu of this, I tie a ridge line for my rain fly, but have no convenient anchor points for stretching out the tarp. A custom shade that can be easily attached would be ideal.
Still, I’m glad I have it & highly recommend the ENO Solopod to anyone that wants to enjoy their hammock even when Nature doesn’t provide nearby trees.
