I am not a fan of the included rain fly because no matter how you adjust it, there isn't perfect coverage. I purchased a larger Hennessy fly and it works great. Same with the tree straps, they are too short and don't provide the versatility and easy setup I need. I ended up buying the straps from a competitor and those work wonderfully.
Setup call for hanging the hammock using figure eight knots and a half hitch to finish everything off. This works, but I like adjustability without pulling the knots apart. I ended up purchasing carabiners and descending rings - watch a YouTube video to see how this is done. Now I have perfect adjustability.
Hennessy has a great product, but they should be aware they should be aware of the innovations coming from their competitors, specifically the one with the extended foot pocket.
Awesome hammock, a little bit of a learing curve to set up and sleep on, but very confortable when you figure it out!
Some extra things you should do to make this hammock system better:
-Use a ratcheting strap system to hang it much easier/faster/tighter.
-Use stakes to tie the side strings to.
-Invest in the snakeskin, it will make this much easier to take up and down.
-If it is going to be below 40F at night, use a wide, flexible thermal mat. I bought a skinny one and it is awkward in the hammock.
First I'll start with some pros:
- Tough material. I can wad this up and shove back in the bag with no worries it will rip.
- Built in bug net. Amazing. Kept all bugs out when I was in the woods next to a river.
- Small footprint. I'm sure there are smaller things out there, but this packs up quite small and saved me a lot of space in my bag.
- Included straps are too small. I'm going to have to order bigger straps because these don't fit around most trees around here. That is the SouthEastern United States. It would only go around half of most trees.
- included rainfly is too small. The rainfly is just enough to get by. I haven't actually been able to test it in rain, but it is pretty small and just barely covers the hammock.
If you are looking for a camping hammock, look no further. If you want a hammock just to relax in or take to the park for an afternoon, you may want to look elsewhere.
On a personal note, I wish I didn't get the bottom entry. It is a hassle for me to get into it, especially at night, and sometimes the Velcro wouldn't snap back correctly. If I could go back, I would probably get a side entry zipper hammock from Hennessy instead. There are companies out there that will modify an existing bottom entry into a side entry, which is probably what I am going to do.
