Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice big cover Full sized hex cover supplies great shelter. I bought to use with my ENO hammock and the first couple of days use went well. If you go with a piecemeal hammock setup, be aware that in this instance my fly is longer than the hammock. Thus, I can't tie off to the hammock ridgeline to keep the fly close. For Fall/Winter use, I'll probably drop the sides to make an almost A-frame shelter, though I'm going to continue to experiment throughout the summer. Bottom line...just the right amount of tie-outs, comes with attached lines that fit inside their own pockets for storage, and fairly light for it's size. Wished it came with a sack, but no real biggie since it's waterproof....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Rain Fly I bought this to use with my eno double nest because it is a large size fly. I have used this for 4 days straight in heavy rain with only a few hours of no rain. I stayed dry the whole time. I have used this in an unexpected hail storm on tablerock mtn in sc and it held up fine, it wasn't heavy ice but enough to have me worried. Overall I have used this over 10 times and have no complaints. You can adjust the slope to accomadate your needs and it is easy to set up. it does take up a little space in my pack but not much more than my hammock does. I am planning on putting a scotch guard type coating on it soon just to prolong the dwr coating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great spacious upgrade I have camped exclusively with my eno hammock for the past 2 years, and after one particularly rainy summer, decided that I needed to size up my tarp for more living space. This tarp is perfect - I can pitch one side down in a fairly tight A line for privacy, and stake the other side out on 2 tarp poles and have ample space to cook, put on my boots, etc., without crouching in and huddling next to my hammock. Best of all, the tarp doesn't take up any more room in my pack than the pro fly I had been using. I highly recommend this tarp for folks whop want some living space out of the rain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have I have owned my Hennessy hammock for about five years. I have used the hex fly and have never regretted it. If you hang your hammock high enough you can store all your gear underneath and still have room to cook and relax underneath the fly and while staying nice and dry. Sometimes i dont even bring the hammock and only use the fly. Buy it and you wont regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great BIG heavy duty tarp I have used this nearly dozen times over the past year. So not really a longterm test. I can say that it is big, though considered heavy. I think the weight is a worthy trade off when you consider price, durability, and coverage. While other materiels may be lighter. This stays tight in the wind and rain as polyester stretches less than other fabrics, does not "mist" through, and is more UV stable. It covers a very large area. In a porch configuration it provides ample space and you can run it all the way to the ground when needed. Sometimes my wife and I will hang close together and share this tarp. The price speaks for itself. The only caveats I have are related to the REI description: -It is NOT coyote brown. It is more of a dark olive. (Fine with me.) -It is NOT asymmetrical. It is a symmetrical hex tarp. I had to contact Hennessey before purchasing to verify, as an asymmetrical would not work for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice and Big! I wasn't expecting this Hex Fly to be as big as it is. I love it! It provides plenty of shade from the sun and keeps me and my belongings dry in the rain and morning dew.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, reasonably priced tarp... not Coyote. This is the third of these I have purchased. Now all three of us will use these with our hammocks. While we have not used "#3" yet...I have inspected it and am not disappointed. While there are lighter tarps, it is a good value for the money. Providing generous coverage, UV resistance, low stretch, and a fair amount of durability. However, these are NOT COYOTE. Rather they are DARK OLIVE. Which makes no difference to me.

Can anyone speak to the durability and the waterproofness of this fly? I would like to use this as a backpacking shelter.

Asked by: oldbackpacker
I purchased this tarp in 2013, and have used it on about 5 treks. It is not as well made as the original ones that were manufactured in the USA. However, the only real signs of wear on mine are the pockets. And after the last trip on the OLP in Pennsylvania when a tornado whipped through, knocking the tree my tarp/hammock was secured to. No damage. The only penalty is the weight.

Is this the symmetrical or asymmetrical version. The title and description say two different things.

Asked by: Merc272
This Hennessey Rainfly is the symmetrical version. The references to the asymmetrical model in the details are incorrect. Thank you for bringing this information to our attention. We will update the product listing on REI.com as soon as possible.

If I cannot use a hammock in an area, can I still use this tarp as a regular tarp? Might sound inexperienced to tarps - because I am.

Asked by: SFphoto
Yes, this is a standard hex tarp design that will be tied between two uprights and the sides stakes out. If there are no trees, you can use your hiking poles as uprights.
