Explorer Ultralight Asym Zip

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Comfy centerpiece of a four-season hammock rig. I have had this hammock for about five years now and have spent many (50? 60?) nights in it. The most impressive feature is the durability of the stitching and the zipper on the bug netting. When you enter this style of hammock, with the integrated zippered bug net, there is stress put on both the zipper and the stitching connecting the zipper to the hammock fabric. However, I've never had an issue with them failing. When you lie slightly sideways,… Full review

Ultralight Backpacker Asym

rated 4.5 of 5 stars UPDATE TO 2004 REVIEW: Nicely researched and developed products. They are comfortable and dependable. This is an updated review from many years ago. As I could not find my information from back then, I made a new profile. As I'm such a major fan of hammock camping, I thought I would submit another review and mention some additional points. When Tom was just starting out making hammocks, he and I had the pleasure of talking several times over the years. I was very impressed by his dedication to quality… Full review

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
