The double figure eight is a favorite of mine, I use it along with a locking biner, when I'm teaching beginners as it is less time consuming. and a very good secure knot to use.
Firefighters use this knot to make a rescue harness for patients. The loops are made large enough to hold the patients legs. The running end is run around the patients chest with a half-hitch. Then the tail end is used to create a bowline out of the half-hitch around their chest. The patient can then be raised or lowered. It's hard to explain the chest part without seeing it.
Mike I think you might be talking about a two loop bowline right, thats a water rescue knot.
Just remember; this knot is NOT redundant. If one strand breaks, there is a good chance the other will pull through!
This is a must knot & my favorite as well. using it with a lock-carabiner is less time consuming while m teaching my juniors.But otherwise i tie a double eight with the harness without a biner.
