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 protects the environment.
Why buy one of Tom Hennessy's Hammocks?
Tom has been sleeping in hammocks for over 60 years and designing his own models since 1984. In 1999, Tom Hennessy was singlehandedly credited with creating an entirely new hammock segment in the outdoor industry and since then has revolutionized the camping experience with his five patented features.
Tom is a perfectionist so every hammock he designs is uncompromising in materials and workmanship. There are countless tiny improvements that over 20 years of testing could produce but you can feel as soon as you stretch out in his hammock and close your eyes.
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 often cost more, weigh more and are bulkier in your pack than a Hennessy.
Tom is very concerned that many hammock manufacturers and retailers do not include protection for the trees in the price of their hammocks. This results in damage to two trees every time a hammock is tied up. Because of his commitment to protecting the environment, Tom includes free "TreeHugger" webbing straps with every hammock to protect the trees. Now you don't have to decide if you can afford to protect the environment.
Hennessy Hammocks are most comfortable when suspended off the ground as a bug proof enclosed bed or folded into a chair or lounger for relaxing around camp. When there are no trees or other supports, they are superior to a bivy sack when set up on the ground as a tent.
Hennessy Hammocks are the choice of serious expeditions into the Congo and Amazon. They are also popular with scouts, section hikers, thru hikers, Peace Corps volunteers, forest fire fighters, smoke jumpers, emergency field hospitals, international disaster relief workers, and as survival equipment for preppers, military and SAR personnel. Hennessy Hammocks have even been used as stretchers in emergencies that occurred far into the wilderness.

Hennessy Hammock has a complete line of specialty hammocks
Hennessy Hammock has a complete line of specialty hammocks, including jungle hammocks, double bottom hammocks, winter hammocks, camos, ultralights, and the right size and weight for anyone up to 350 lbs. Hennessy Hammocks come in five different lengths from 9 to 12 feet long, so getting a longer hammock will be even more comfortable if you don't mind carrying a few more ounces.
All Hennessy Hammocks come complete with attached "no see um" mosquito mesh, an elastic "hold open" for the mesh, detachable rain fly, support ropes, a gear loft on the ridge line and stuff sack with set up instructions on back. Hennessy Hammock also provides complimentary 42" long "Tree Hugger" webbing straps to protect the tender bark of trees. Because these accessory webbing straps are complimentary, they are weighed separately from the hammock.
Designed and tested for six years before going into production
Tom Hennessy traveled for six years and made over 50 prototypes before being granted 5 patents for his revolutionary shelters. The Hennessy Hammock brings truly new features to jungle hammocks with a range of models for every purpose. The Hennessy Hammock is a totally new design for camping hammocks with patents in the U.S., Canada and Internationally. It has been tested in Canada, the U.S., Central and South America, Borneo, Australia, Africa, the Congo and even the Arctic and other extreme and hostile environments around the world.
Experience a level of comfort on the trail almost as good as your bed at home and maybe even better.
The Hennessy Hammock is just as comfortable for expeditions into the Amazon jungle or on an African Safari as it is in the backyard or out at the cottage.
Two of the ultralite camping hammocks are under 2 lbs. Tall or large campers and campers with injuries, arthritis or bone spurs and back pain tell us about finding their first night of comfortable camping in many years in the larger Explorer Deluxe or Safari Deluxe models. The patented asymmetrically shaped hammock supports your back like a quality mattress off the ground. 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.

Leave No Trace
The Hennessy Hammock has almost zero impact and is an excellent example of a “Leave No Trace” shelter.
All of our Hennessy Hammock models are provided with complimentary "Tree hugger" webbing straps to protect the tender bark of trees. The smaller the diameter of the tree, the more times the webbing straps go around the tree to spread the load. The environmentally friendly design requires no ground leveling, trenching or staking. When you walk away from your campsite, there will be no tent footprint and almost no sign that you were ever there.
New Jungle Series
The new Jungle Series have double bottoms which forms a pocket to hold the Radiant DoubleBubble Pad. The Jungle Expedition, Jungle Explorer and Jungle Safari have recently been added to the Deep Jungle and Deep Jungle XL providing an insulated hammock for hikers of every size and weight. The Radiant DoubleBubble Pad can be used inside both the bottom entry and zip hammocks.
