The Hennessy Hammock is the most innovative solution to lightweight, comfortable camping on the planet.
At last, you will never need to find a level campsite. No more roots, rocks or puddles coming through the floor of your tent. No more aching muscles and stiff joints from sleeping on the hard ground. And no more carrying a heavy tent. Finally, a shelter that takes the pain out of the outdoors and is good for the environment.
Here is a video with Tom Hennessy giving a quick demonstration of our patented hammock design. Try watching it full screen (and even in HD) to see the details.
Why buy a Hennessy Hammock?
In 1999, Hennessy Hammock was singlehandedly responsible for creating an entirely new segment in the outdoor industry and since then has revolutionized the camping experience with its five patented features.
Hennessy Hammock is a complete shelter system for one price. Some competitors' hammocks seem cheaper until you add up the cost of all the parts, then you find that they cost more and often weigh more than a Hennessy Hammock.
To be sure that Hennessy Hammock ropes can never damage a tree, we also provide complimentary webbing straps with every hammock. Now you don't have to decide if you can afford to protect the environment.
Check out a few of the video testimonials to hear what people are saying about the Hennessy Hammock.

Leave No Trace: the Hennessy Hammock has almost zero impact and is an excellent example of a “Leave No Trace” shelter.
Oversize “HEX” Rainfly option! For little or no difference in cost, the "double-wide"PU coated polyester ”HEX” fly can be substituted for the regular fly on several models.
All Hennessy Rainflies are designed to keep you dry when set up according to instructions; however, a bigger fly will give you an added margin of insurance or extra room to work under. Just choose the "customize" option for the hammock you want and add the Polyester Asym HEX rainfly to your cart. This offer is available only at the time of purchase to customers purchasing directly from Hennessy Hammock.
Extra SnakeSkins for the oversize fly: If you are substituting the "HEX" fly for the stock fly, you may want one set of SnakeSkins for the Hex fly and one set for the hammock bottom. Many people just use the SnakeSkins to collapse the wet rainfly and keep it on the outside of their Pack so you may want to order an extra set in addition to the free set you'll receive with your Hennessy Hammock website hammock purchase.
Emergency Preparedness: Hennessy Hammocks are ideal as an emergency shelter.
Hennessy Hammocks are popular with Peace Corps volunteers, forest fire fighters, smoke jumpers, emergency field hospitals, international disaster relief workers, and as survival equipment for military and SAR personnel. Hennessy Hammocks have even been used as stretchers in emergencies that occurred far into the wilderness.
