It is a balmy spring evening and you are reading to hit the hiking trails for a bit of overnight adventure. Should you pack up that bulky tent for protection in case a drizzle sets in? Not necessarily. Simply bring along a Hennessey hammock, and you will have the perfect solution to the debate between sleeping under the stars and running the risk of rain.
These hammocks can mount anywhere off the trail between two trees, keeping you off of uneven or rocky ground and away from the damp earth. The attached canopy will protect you from the rain and provide shade if needed. With open sides, however, you can still catch a good breeze and enjoy the beauty of the moonlight while being lulled by the sway of this perfect camping bed solution.
Dropping from the canopy is mesh mosquito netting to shield you from those pesky mosquitoes. If the rain becomes a driving one, you can lower the sides of the canopy to provide some additional coverage. The ridge line of the canopy has a sliding mesh pocket, perfect for a stash of energy bars. It also includes two clips for mounting a flashlight and other essentials so that they are at your fingertips while sleeping in the tent. A Velcro closure prevents insects from getting access to your toes while you're sleeping as well.
The Hennessey Hammock comes in a water-resistant tote with instructions printed on the tote for set-up, making it nearly impossible to get stuck with a hammock you do not know how to put up. A tie-down on the bottom of the tote keeps it from shifting when carried so you are comfortable when carrying it. Even with the tote bag, the Hennessey Hammock weighs in at only 2.5 pounds, making it a pleasure to carry along and much easier to handle than a tent.
Easy set-up takes only minutes, including the canopy. For portability, ease of set-up, comfort and protection while hammock camping, the Hennessey is a great choice.
