User Review: Hennessy Hammock Ultralight Backpacker Asym
Design: 3-4 season
Ease of Setup: It is easy in the forest a little tougher in the desert.
Weight: With skins and pegs weighs in at about 2lbs.
Price Paid: $145
I bought this on a whim, saw it on display and read the "how to and why for" and thought that it might be nice to relax in, providing I could find two hard points far enough apart. I have since made it a permanent part of my backpack. It is great in all but the worst condition, I'd guess that to be a raging blizzard. It is great for solo hiking or even on a fishing trip when you don't want to listen to a campmate snore thru the night.
It sets up quick and is comfortable to the extreme. I use my light pad in it to ward off the cold from below and a bag for the season. The way it sets up it keeps me at a very comfortable angle and I sleep very well and wake up very refreshed. Better than sleeping on the ground by a long shot.
The only complaint I had is that the first time I set it up I didn't get the knot right and I landed rather abruptly on my butt. Hasn't happened since. I do recommend the snake skins, they make stowing the thing very easy.
