User Review: Hennessy Hammock Expedition Asym
Price Paid: $140
After hearing a number of people talk about Hennessy Hammocks, I decided to give one a try. Unfortunately, I was pretty disappointed in what it had to offer.
The tarp is borderline useless, it is far too small to offer adequate protection from a decent storm. The entry system, while novel, is too much of a hassle to get out of and it makes using the hammock as a chair pretty inconvenient. Mosquitoes are able to bite through the bottom fabric. The hammock feels tiny and cramped.
The suspension system isn't bad, and the overall setup is not particularly heavy, but at $140, I decided to return my Expedition Asym and went with a Warbonnet Blackbird (which doesn't come with a tarp, but everyone I've spoken with who stuck with the HH Expedition ended up getting rid of the tarp anyways). For $100 less, you could get yourself a Grand Trunk Skeeter Beeter.
If you are a shorter than I am (6') and aren't going to encounter bad weather, this hammock would probably be fine for you but based on my experiences with this hammock I would not recommend it.
