I have used this hammock once in my yard and I plan on taking it camping in about a month. So far, this hammock has lived up to its reputation. I was able to get in and out of it easily (Iâm an average height of 5â 4â) and I could put it up myself without any extra straps (although it took a whileâ¦ more on this later). My husband and I both laid in it in various positions and it is very comfortable.
Set up was the only downside to this hammock. I am not very good at tying complex knots and the instructions on the stuff sack were incredibly confusing to me. After a YouTube search, my husband had it down but I was still having trouble. On top of that we have thick trees so I had to tie the rope about one foot from either side of the tree strap. To be fair, this is not the hammocks fault but it is a nascence. We ended up purchasing longer tree straps and a carabiner with ring system so we can camp on thicker trees and I would not have to tie such complicated knots. We tested it again in the yard and it is working out fantastic). This so far is an excellent hammock and I would recommend it for campers more than recreational backyard user.

The integrated mosquito net is the best part, given that we camp in the north woods of Michigan where mosquitoes can be so thick they’ll carry you off in the night. You might get bitten through the bottom of the hammock, but you can take care of that by spraying some permethryn on the underside before you head out.
Here’s the problem: the tarp that comes with the tent is tiny. It barely covers the tent. It did rain while we were out, and the tarp did keep my son dry, but when it’s raining, you have to keep the tarp very low to the tent and then it’s like you’re in a burrito slung between two pines. A little confining. I have a tarp that is much, much larger, so that when it’s raining, you can still ‘hang out’ under it in a way similar to a regular tent. And if the wind starts to blow, there will be some rain that comes into contact with the hammock at the very edges. Long story short, you’ll probably want to buy a separate, bigger tarp to go along with your Hennessy.
