Ultra light, ultra coverage that even wind driven sideways rain can't penetrate! I've been camping all my life, so I know what it is like to sleep in a tent...on the ground, on a cot, on a ground pad. Then I discovered that hammocks weren't just for the backyard. Then I discovered they're lighter than most backpacking tents. And that they don't offer much protection from the elements by themselves. Step in the myriad tarps used with hammocks. Sure, you could use a typical fiberglass tarp from… Full review
A lightweight, hex-shaped, “cat” cut tarp, for hammocks, constructed of cuben fiber. Increase coverage while decreasing weight, but at what cost? The tarp that came with my Hennessy Hammock is a small rectangular design, hung on the diagonal. Such designs minimize weight, but provide minimal overhead coverage For that reason, they require careful site selection to minimize wind, and blowing rain.

Side sleepers can find themselves waking up to a facefull of nylon… Full review

And then I waited...and waited some more, which was completely understandable considering the huge number of orders I am sure they received. A month later, I received my quilt in the mail and made plans… Full review
Hammock under quilt that is well made and has a realistic temperature rating. I have switched to a hammock as my primary shelter after many years of waffling between it and a tent. Up until the past year, I used a Thermarest pad as my insulation in the hammock. Once I made the commitment to the hammock, it was time to upgrade my insulating capability to a down under quilt. After reviewing all the options (and there are several), I purchased a Hammock Gear Incubator. This is an independent company… Full review
