Hennessy Hammocks were being used in disaster relief efforts and the people who are using them are finding them to be very effective solutions to the problem of finding a dry, comfortable, bug-proof place to sleep in a flooded, mosquito-infested area where malaria and other insect-borne diseases can occur.
Photo: This picture sent by a relief worker from Banda Aceh shows that a hammock can be pitched even in an area that has been devastated by flooding.
We are also developing a freestanding modular system that can support an indefinite number of shelters. If you are a volume buyer interested in such a system please contact us.
By the way I used it 4 nights during the most recent Hurricane deployments for Gustav and Ike. Everyone else was sleeping on cots and swatting mosquitos in La. and Texas while I slept like a baby. The outside of the net was covered with large birds that they call mosquitoes.

"Hello, Just wanted you to know I slept in your hammock for our entire deployent at Hurricane Katrina in Hancock County Mississippi ...this is not the first time I've spent my nights in it. This time, however, I slept every night of the 2 week deployment snug, cool, and mosquito free. This picture is the first night on site at the Hancock Medical Center. I ended up setting it up from luggage rack to luggage rack on some of the vans we drove over in. Later I found two columns that ended up being the final setting....Your product is WONDERFUL."
"Greetings, First allow me to say that I have enjoyed your products for several years and have enthusiastically recommended them to friends and co-workers. I have used your hammocks (namely the Ultralight Backpacker) for travel to a variety of locations primarily while responding to man made and natural disasters. Some examples include Seattle, Vancouver, Turkey, El Salvador, Liberia, Rwanda, Albania, and currently in Iraq. In every location I have been the envy of my compatriots......one quick example was in El Salvador '99 just folling their earthquake, I was with a medical team establishing remote clinics. During one night of the second week there, we experienced an "after shock" of 6.6. I awoke the next morning to questions of how big I thought the quake was. I responded "what quake, it was a week ago". Apparently it had awakened everyone else during the night, as they were all in the usual terrestrial tents, and I slept straight through."

I am a Canadian Ranger on North Island (Port McNeill). I now own 3 pairs of snakeskins, two Hennessey Hammocks (Exped), 2 HHSSs, and a 30D hex rainfly (perfect kit). I was actually turned on to my first Expedition by Brent (now our Sergeant) from Sointula. I was talking to a member of Search and rescue in Salt Springs who mentioned they swear by your gear. So thanks for creating such quality and functional gear.
