From the manufacturer
The Ultralite Backpacker is designed for anyone under 200 lbs. This is our most famous model for ultralight backpackers on the long trails who need a shelter that is comfortable, compact and built to last. It has a 30D silnylon rainfly and 1400 lb. test Spectra support ropes the thickness of a boot lace. We know of one hiker who did 17000 miles (25000 km ) including the triple crown and many side trails in three years with one Ultralite Backpacker Asym Classic.
Choose from the Classic bottom entry sealed with velcro or the side entry Zip sealed with a strong #5 YKK zipper.
Serious Camping and Survival Shelters
When serious adventurers are planning expeditions into unknown areas of the world they all know that they are getting the hammock with a proven reputation for quality and comfort.
A Complete Shelter System
Every Hennessy is a complete, engineered shelter system for one price.
Hennessy Hammock believes it is essential to include webbing straps with each hammock to prevent damage to the tender bark of trees.
All Hennessys include webbing straps, tightly woven fabrics and high quality support ropes, a matching detachable rainfly, a "no see um" mosquito mesh, a gear loft on the ridge line and a stuff sack with set up instructions on the back. Built tough for years of service, all of our support ropes and webbing straps are six times stronger than the weight rating of the hammock.
The Hennessy Hammock has almost zero impact and is an excellent example of a “Leave No Trace” shelter.
Experience a level of comfort on the trail almost as good as your bed at home and maybe even better. The patented asymmetrically shaped hammock supports your back and knees like a quality contoured mattress off the ground. Tall or large campers and campers with injuries, arthritis, bone spurs or back pain tell us about finding their first night of comfortable camping in many years with the larger Explorer Deluxe or Safari Deluxe models. You will wake up in the morning feeling great. Some owners of Hennessy Hammocks claim that they come home from their adventure feeling better than when they left. Some hikers report that they tossed out their beds when they got home from a hike and set up their hammock in the house.
Why a Hennessy?
The Hennessy Hammock is a legendary piece of camping and survival equipment and has been the choice of epic expeditions exploring the full length of the Nile, Amazon and Congo Rivers, up to the Arctic, down into the deepest caves on Earth, and other extreme environments around the world.
It's a shelter that takes the pain out of the outdoors and protects the environment.
Built tough for years of service, every hammock is uncompromising in materials and workmanship. There are countless tiny improvements that only 40 years of effort and five patents can achieve, all of which you can feel as soon as you stretch out in this hammock and close your eyes.
Unique Bottom Entry
Patented entrance on the bottom automatically snaps closed under the weight of your body and seals with velcro.
The "Classic" bottom entry works great when you are being followed by a cloud of mosquitoes. When you duck your head down to open the bottom entrance, the mosquitoes don't know what you're doing, so they get out of the way for a few seconds. Before they know what's happened, the door has snapped shut and you are on the inside and they are on the outside.
Side Zipper Entry
Zips closed with a full length, heavy duty #10 YKK zipper on one side between the mesh and the bottom fabric.
One advantage of the zip model is that it's a little easier to set up your bedding but the mosquitoes also find it easier follow you in and join you for a snack later, so double check for intruders before you zip up for the night.
Hennessy Hammock is a small family run company whose only mission is to continually improve the evolution of hammock design.
The inventor, Tom Hennessy, has been sleeping in hammocks for over 60 years and experimenting with designs for over 40 years. He made over 50 prototypes and beta-tested his designs for six years before getting five patents and going into production.
Triangular Mesh Gear Pocket, Glove Hooks, Carabiner Loops, and included Webbing Straps.
A nifty gear pocket slides on the ridgeline and stores out of sight behind your head. Two glove hooks are also threaded on the ridgeline and can be used for attaching LED lights and even attaching a drink can by the hole in the pull tab. All hammocks ridge lines are installed with a loop on each inside hammock end to which a small carabiner can be hooked to hold daypacks, water bottles, and other small items which are too heavy to hang over the ridge line.
