Rated 4 out of 5 by from "A Stealth Camper's Dream" You can sling this hammock in about two minutes in places no one would ever think of putting a tent, steep rocky hillsides, marshy ground, no problem - all you need is trees (or something sturdy) to tie it to. It is very dry since you are off the ground. It's remarkable comfortable, if a bit cozy. I use several small stuffsacks to keep things organized inside. The optional Snakeskins system is great - get it, and you'll need a full lenght Thermarest pad. No poles makes for easy packing. The brown color blends in with most any surrounding. It's light enough to carry on day trips for an afternoon snooze. Unfortunately there's only room enough for one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hennessy Hammock I have used these hammocks for many years in the jungles of Panama and Honduras. Off the ground from toxic ants, snakes and other insects really helps. No flooding like tents. You need to practice and remember certain thing while setting up. Place the straps high enough on the trees or what ever you are attaching to, 6-7 feet for me. Need 15 feet apart or in between anchor points. You need to make sure the fly will not capture water and collapse sending you into the rain to fix the fly! I sleep on my sides and have no sore hips or shoulders. I am 6'4" tall and weigh 210 lbs. Robert the Explorer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tropical Expeditions Best Tent Option On a circle island paddle in Hawaii this was the shelter used by several of my cohorts and I (ranging in body weight from 130lbs to 200lbs). It proved to be VERY simple and quick to set up even after a long day on the water.We stayed up off the rocks, out of the wet and away from the bugs. All things that make for the best possible night's sleep !The "snakeskins" add-on(available from the manufacturer) proved to be the best way to set them up for easy packing/unpacking even in the rain.Could be made better by allowing it to be used by two, but that is a minor flaw (they do have larger ones[...]).Leave the tent at home-this is lighter and more comfy !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm not crippled Simply put, ground sleeping renders me crippled in the morning, period. The HH not only prevents the backache, it supports my body and I get great sleep. Quick setup and takedown. Great ventilation. Great in the rain. Know that part of the fun is learning how good sleep can get by making adjustments. I frequently get up during the night and untie one end and raise or lower it to fine tune my sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great alternative to a tent I never considered hammock camping because I did not think you could sleep in it. The Hennessy hammock's assymetrical design allows the user to lay diagonally and very nearly flat. After deciding to try it, I found that I sleep far better in the hammock than I ever have in a tent. It is light, easy to set up and is extremely comfortable. I have several good, thick inflatable ground pads (REI and Big Agnes) but the quality of sleep I get in the hammock is far better than any I get on the ground. This is a great piece of gear and has become my preferred method of camping whenever possible. It makes site selection much easier (where trees are present) and is truly 'leave no trace' camping. This product is very well designed and constructed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'll never go back to a tent Couldn't wait to try out my new hammock. Went camping with my kids. They got the tent, and I got the hammock. Still getting used to it, but I had better sleeping nights than I ever did in a tent. I'm a big guy, so it took some getting used to. Found I had to wrestle to get the right position, but once I did, goodnight. The third night out, we had a great thunder and lightning storm. I stayed bone dry while swinging gently in the wind. I tried using a 20 inch inflatable pad, but there was just not enough room in there for it, my bag, and me. Plan on getting a lot of use out of it. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Glad I bought one I've been using a hammock for 2 years and am glad I took the plunge. I've used it in all four seasons sleeping to a low of 18*F. I prefer it over a tent for temps above 50*. Hammock forums is filled with tips to make your hammocking experience a good one. This product is for the back country hiker more so than for the weekend car camping recreational user. It packs very small and is much lighter than a mainstream tent. It keeps you cooler in the summer than a tent. It sets up on any grade of ground, flat or sloped. The insect netting does a good job keeping the bugs off. The fly is minimal. I upgraded the fly for more coverage. It is a solo shelter. Can set up without the fly if you want to see the stars. There are no pressure points, so you don't wake up with numb arms or sore hips. My hammock does not show any wear & tear even after two years of steady use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than a Chicago apartment Having just moved up from Chicago to a dry cabin in a bog in Fairbanks Alaska, I desperately needed a way to spend time outdoors without using copious amounts of DEET, or slapping away at jurassic-scale mosquitoes. This hammock returned my ability to sleep outdoors, and read in a completely peaceful environ... once I stopped laughing at the droves of mosquitoes trying to get in the mesh anyway. I've also teamed this up with a Snakeskin setup from the manufacturers website and that's an invaluable component in keeping the hammock from getting tangled up in its self. My first trip out to camp on gravel bars in the Tanana was an amazing success, when I didn't have to do any ground clearing and I could sleep well above the rose bushes. In the morning the tent shed moisture and dew quickly having never saturated by pressing against the ground all night. it packs up in a minute with some practice and stuffs easily into a small stuff sack. I couldn't recommend this more highly for people that want an easy camping experience and if you're ok with sleeping in hammocks I've gotten some of the best sleep in my life in this thing sleeping flat across the asymmetrical bottom. I can see where sleeping in the tent would be uncomfortable if you're over 5'8" or stockier but it fit my frame fine. And I can definitively report that it's capable of supporting ~300lbs of swaying weight all night long - as my friend and his girlfriend so generously demonstrated for all of us. This hammock is not sound proof unfortunately.

The specs say the weight limit is 200 lbs but the description states 250 lbs. Could you clarify the correct weight limit? Thanks

Asked by: FlyfishMT
The weight limit for this Hennessy hammock is 250 lbs., as stated under the title. Thank you for pointing out the discrepancy so we can correct our specs.
