Make your boots levitate.

The Eagles Nest Outfitters Underbelly Gear Sling isn't like a hammock for your gear; it is a hammock for your gear. Built for use in conjunction with your backpacking hammock, the Underbelly lines up underneath you so that your gear stays off the ground and is easy to access in the middle of the night. And if you have a skeptical buddy who wants to see what's up with the whole backpacking hammock craze, the Underbelly can comfortably sleep another person.

can I just say "no DUH!" ? HA!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Not busting on anyone TOO hard here, but this is a "gear" hammock and not designed for your little "mini me" like s hammock version of a trundle bed! That said, it is so great to not have my gear down in the ground frost and dew in the is also really nice to be able to roll over and dig around in my gear right below me. I have had a multi-day back in it and my boots (circa 50lbs) and no issues. I also note that SOMEONE I know may have found it rather convenient to keep a soft sided cooler with frosty ones close at hand. Mmmmm, delicious. Not a requirement for hammock packing, but one of those niceties that can make things a little more convenient, like that piece of foam mat you use to sit on in the morning while making your coffee.


peace of mind

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

snakes love boots. I use it to hang my boots and pack in, zip them up along with the hammock into the bug net, and never worry about something creepy crawly in my stuff the next morning.


Definitely not for another person

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I used this during a week long trip on the beaches of Puerto Rico. This kept all of my stuff off the sand and was awesome to have right under me while I slept in case I wanted to reach for a bottle of water or some snacks. It did take me some trial and error on how low to position below the hammock, because the first couple of times I actually felt I was putting my body weight on the sling as I laid in the hammock. This resulted in the cords snapping from the sling, so I know there is no way a human being could lay in this. Fortunately, it was an easy fix.

What is it's weight limit?

Odd that the description suggests letting your hammock-interested buddy crash in it for the night then... I mean, it would probably hold, but still.

Yea, I think someone needed another cup of coffee before they scribed that description...

Do they make a quick attach system for this?. The carabiner trick works. But I want something more secure .


Dry gear!

This underbelly sling works awesome under my eno. Holds my 90 liter pack and then some! Great core insulator as well on those cold nights! If you have am eno pick one of these up, keep the food in the tree still though...(not bear proof:))


great for gear no a friend(unless its the 4 legged one)

    awesome addition to any hammock!!! keeps your gear dry as you are. your quick access to the things you need with out having to get out of you nest. a toddle could use this as a hammock, but the dogs love it for sure!


    Good, yet not really what I was looking for.

      This hammock is good for what it states...hiking, trekking, and camping...however, the dimensions state "9 x 4 ft"...with the sides bunched up the way they are (because of the strings you're going to be attaching to the wall, or tree...) take SO much length out of the hammock. It says 9 ft...but it ends up being more like 4ft x 4ft in the end. Do not purchase this hammock unless you are intending to just hang out in it...I bought it for sleeping in, and I'm only 5ft 5in, this hammock was WAY too small to lay in for me. Other then that, it's's super lightweight, and a very strong thin just didn't live up to it's size dimensions. Only purchase this hammock, if you intend to sit in it, in that case, it would be a fantastic hammock!

      Yep - this isn't meant for people. If you're looking for a people hammock, eno's singlenest and doublenest hammocks are great - I love my doublenest. I use the underbelly to keep close the things I need outside my hammock in a backcountry camping situation, like my shoes, puffy jacket, etc., especially if I've hanged my hammock up high or if I'm worried about critters chomping holes into things. I'm hoping I can get the dog to like sleeping in the underbelly, but for now she's more into snuggling up in the doublenest, which doesn't make for a great night's sleep.
