User Review: Hennessy Hammock Explorer Deluxe Asym
Design: Three season - extra long
Ease of Setup: not as easy as advertised
Weight: 3 lbs
Price Paid: $200
I used the Asym ONE TIME on a two-night backpack in the Smoky Mtns in mid-May. Night one it rained a bit with temperatures about 48 F. Slept very cold with my summer bag (rated to 20 F). Used a Therm-A-Rest in the tent with me and it slid all around, got bunched up, etc. Did stay dry.
On night two we camped high (6600 ft) under dense trees. Very stormy night with high winds and driving rain. The Asym was a COMPLETE FAILURE! Rain blew in, under, and through the fly. I got thoroughly soaked. The base is treated so water accumulated inside the tent! Same problem with the Therm-A-Rest. Worst of all the tent ripped at the fly/base stitching - after only two nights of use.
Very disappointed. I sent it back to the manufacturer and after six weeks have still received no credit and no response. VERY DISAPPOINTED.
