How are these compared to Enos hammocks?

Byer of Maine was the first company to bring lightweight products to the US in 1999.  We have redesigned this hammock 4 times in the last 5 years using consumer feedback as a guide.  If you want to compare this to the ENO Jungle Nest here is some info.  Theirs $99, ours is normally $59.95 and this deal gets you a price of $31.99.  The material of both are Nylon, although I cannot compare the different types of Nylon.  But again, we have been making and selling hammocks for almost 20 years using this material and production methods.  We produce the best quality hammocks and stand behind our products.
Theirs has a 400lb weight capacity, ours is 275.  We've tested ours to 600, but we like to be realistic and given the dimensions below, find it nearly impossible for anyone over 275 lbs to be comfortable in this hammock.
Theirs is 112" x 57", ours is 116" x 56". Theirs is 29oz., ours is 22oz.
Ours have the lightweight spreader bars in the netting so it doesn't fall down in your face when you sit up to look around.  The spreader bars are removable incase you don't need the mosquito netting and want to use it in reverse without the netting.
Hope this helps.

What does " find it nearly impossible for anyone over 275 lbs to be comfortable in this hammock " mean? I'm a little over 275 and have several hammocks I can get comfortable in. Just trying to understand the statement since I'm not familiar with these hammocks but am interested in possibly getting in on this drop. Thanks

We've had lots of consumer feedback from people in the field that suggested anyone over 6'4" and over 275 lbs would have a hard time getting comfortable in our hammock. But, we often times only hear from those that are not satisfied, so maybe you can offer a different perspective. Are your other hammocks at least 116"x56"? It would be nice to have your perspective too.

I'm at work but I have a Grand Trunk Single which is somewhere around 120"x 60". I have a couple Dutchware Hammocks and they're both 11 feet (132"), not sure on the width but the site says 58". I also have a Yukon Outfitter's XL Mosquito hammock and Amazon says it's 118" x 55" I can understand the height being an issue, just checking if there's a problem for someone who weighs just over 275 plus clothes and possibly gear depending on the circumstance. So I try to shoot for hammocks that say they support 300 at least for the buffer. Thanks for the prompt reply BTW, that's awesome.

Ok, thanks for the detail. So the best item for comparison is the Yukon Outfitters. We did test our hammock to 600lbs and left it up for a few days, bounced it up and down, pushed it from side to side, etc. So then with consumer feedback we tried to gauge how much someone one 6'0" to 6'4" might weigh and we settled on 275 to be safe. I wish I could encourage you to buy the hammock, but I cannot encourage someone to exceed the weight limit.
