hammock fantasy photos by Jonathan Stokes
I just wanted to let your company know that for almost four years now i have had my hennessy camouflage hammock [since] i purchased it online when i lived on Maui, Hawaii. Not once has it ever failed in any capacity. It still is in excellent shape all this time later. No damage anywhere on it inside or out. I have used my camouflage hammock everywhere. Superb quality at a affordable price.
Thank you so much for making a great product. If i ever bought another jungle hammock it would be from your company.
One very satisfied, very happy customer.
Thought you might like our solution to Aircraft camping with the hennessy Hammock.
Built up a collapsable, light aluminum frame that uses aircraft tie downs as anchors.
Wonderfully solved the issues of Heat, Rain, Muddy uneven ground and Bugs. Also weathered a heavy downpour with high winds.
This was at Oshkosh 2011, July.

I recently moved from Oregon to Michigan and used my HH to camp along the way.
I've just got back from Hammocking around Andalucia, Spain. I can't tell you how great it was. I got there on the 26th of febuary this year and was there til mid Apirl. It was a tad chilly on the first few day as I'd only brought a crappy sleeping bag and no roll mat but after a few days It was warmer and oh so comfy. I'd defo recommend a decent sleeping bag and a roll mat (basically the same as a tent althought the hammock is so much lighter and no poles!).
I was in a complete dessert there on the coast so it made it a little tricky finding trees etc... but it made it a little more exciting too. the best place I found was in a eucalyptus grove right on a beautiful beach. All in all it's a great product. last time round in spain I took just the basic scout but next time (in a few weeks) my girl and I are taking the safari and gonna go round the same places as I did last time so hopefully it'll make a good comparasion. Thanks for creating such an amazing thing.

Zuess, the Canoeing Canuck from Canada, on his expedition into the bayoux of Louisiana. He paddled over to a cypress tree and tied one rope to it. Then he paddled over to another tree and tied the second rope to it. Then he paddled under the hammock, lifted himself up straight up into the entrance, sat down in the hammock with the feet in the boat, tied off the bowline of the canoe to the inside of the hammock and took a snooze!
This works somewhat better than trying to find a place to spread out your foamy when there's no dry land to be had.
A Wild Life Expedition (UK) amazed and bewildered a family in the Amazon Rainforest when they strung up Hennessy Hammocks in the rafters of their lodge. They also used them as chairs during the day.

The Hennessy Hammock is shown here in a high alpine winter camp site near Mount Rainier. As long as you have two trees or some other anchor to tie it to, the hammock can be set up and ready to use in just minutes. It's just as much at home in the jungle, on the beach, or in a winter campsite.
In the far north of Canada, trees can be hard to find...but an innovative hiker pitched his hammock beneath a giant "Husky" oil sign. That's Michael sitting on the ground by the post on the right.
Here's a portion of a letter from Michael Wood of Planetrek:
"Dear Tom: I thought I'd start off by saying that you and I have had a chance meeting before. It was some years ago at the Payless gas station in Brentwood Bay (British Columbia)...we had a little chit-chat while I filled your truck with propane.
I mentioned that I was bound for the woods to try my luck at tree planting and that's when you introduced my life to the Cocoon. That same hammock has been an invaluable tool from Dawson to Panama City and most places in between. Every time I string the Cocoon, I am callled upon to explain the contraption to a multitude of folk, often seeking to acquire one for themselves. I tell them that it is the hitch-hiker's best friend...that a soul never need look far for a good night's rest anywhere in the great outdoors..."

Hennessy Hammocks are being used on board boats! This one is set up between the mast and the forestay of a sailboat in the Gulf Islands, British Columbia, Canada. The hammock and rainfly side tie-outs are attached to the boat's side rails.

The final night at Michigan Creek had one spot that was perfect for a hammock, however, by this time I had begun to travel and camp with a group of tenters and they wanted to camp at the other end of the beach. Again, thick trees with impenetrable underbrush. I scouted out a couple of potential places in the trees, but then turned around and spotted the most bizarre washed up tree I had ever seen. One stump projecting two massive trees that curved to form a set of giant mammoth tusks. The tide was low enough that night to provide me a great spot to hang. Just because of the shape and size of the trees, and the perfection of their spacing this was perhaps one of my all time favorite spots to hang from.
Is it really true that Hennessys are the hammock of choice for extraterrestrials?
