Expedition Asym Zip

rated 2.5 of 5 stars An easily available hammock system that doesn't live up to its potential. This was my first hammock, and I purchased it after limited research from REI online. While it's served its purpose (and still does) I wouldn't recommend a Hennessy for various reasons detailed below. Unlike an ENO or a cottage vendor hammock, everything required to hang is included in the stuff sack the hammock comes in, which is great for a new hanger. The hanging system used does require the use of knots, however, which… Full review

Ultralight Backpacker Asym

rated 2 of 5 stars Overly complex and poorly implemented. Over the years, I have owned quite a few camping hammocks. I took this particular one on a 5-day hike through the Smoky Mountains a few years ago, then promptly got rid of it. DESIGN I currently own four camping hammocks (I returned my Hennessy, so it doesn't make the list.). The design of the Hennessy was the most complex of all of them. Like most camping hammocks, the Hennessy uses nylon webbing wrapped around a tree as an anchor point. However, unlike most… Full review

Ultralight Backpacker Asym

rated 4 of 5 stars Easy to hang and lightweight, great for solo backpacking travel. Just make sure you have a plan for lower insulation. The version I bought came with the hammock, straps, rain fly, and snake skin. Setting Up This is fairly easy as long as you are camping in areas with good trees.  Getting in This is challenging at first, but once you get the hang of it, it becomes much easier. You will learn where to put your tush and how to swing your body in so your stuff inside isn't too disturbed.  Comfort… Full review

Expedition Asym Zip

rated 4 of 5 stars I have used the Hennessy since 2010. I have suggested to the manufacturer five relatively easy modifications that would make this very comfortably hammock almost perfect, but none have been implemented. I did have it on a canoe trip one fall in Upper New York. Very strong rainstorm filled the hammock with a gallon of water, and I and sleeping bag were drenched. If the rain is coming straight down, it is fine, but if blowing sideways, you will get wet. BUT there is any easy fix. I also had it for… Full review

Expedition Asym Zip

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent! Comfortable, rain-proof, bug-proof, easy to set up and take down. Me: 210 lbs. Female, 30 y/o. You don't have to be old to want to sleep soundly in the wilderness. I used the entire setup as intended. I did pay attention to wind direction when choosing trees and setup. The asymetrical design made it very easy to point it in a wind-resistant position every time. Depending on wind, the lines to stabilize the fly work best staked and stakes aren't included (though I always find a free stake… Full review
