User Review: Hennessy Hammock Ultralight Backpacker Asym
Source: bought it new
When camping below the treeline, there's a better way. Ditch the tent and give a hammock a try.
- Doesn't require level ground to pitch
- Can be used as a chair
- Can be cold as temps drop
This is the BEST shelter I have ever used. I use to look for a flat spot to pitch a tent. Those days are over! My last hike I camped on hillsides, over rocks, and next to some of the most beautiful scenery on the trail. You'll never again have to keep hiking while looking for a good spot to camp...now they are ALL good spots!
I've found the Therm-a-Rest RidgeRest closed cell foam pad placed inside the hammock is a great way to insulate yourself on cold nights. I use the large RidgeRest, which is five inches wider than the regular size and has a great R-rating. Also, using an inflatable neck pillow is a comfortable support for your head and neck.
