User Review: Hennessy Hammock Expedition Asym
Ease of Setup: Find two trees at 12-15 ft apart. Tie one end to each. Test setup. tie out sides (2) crawl in with sleeping bag
Weight: Less than 3 lbs
I bought my Exped Asym from HH when they had a sale on their stuff last year. At 56 years I got to the point where I can't sleep on the ground anymore without making a hole for my shoulders and hips and leaving craters behind wherever I camp.
I have toyed with hammocks for 30 years but could not figure out how to stay warm in them anywhere but the tropics. The Exped is big enough to take an ensolite pad in with you. However, this winter I sewed up a quilt that hangs underneath, which is easier to put up and smaller to pack. I'll never go back to sleeping on the ground.
Downsides: 1) not much proom for gear inside with you, and 2) therefore, no room for your spouse or girlfriend.
