4Season Hammock Set Up Information

Tom has some new advice about stowing the 4Season Hammocks in their Compression Sacks:

We are very pleased with our new 4Season Expedition and Explorer hammocks but in the last few days I saw a YouTube video where a guy was having difficulty repacking his 4Season into the compression sack.  I’d like to show you how I designed it to be repacked.

In the near future I will be emailing you a link to a video but for now, here’s a description.

1/ In the morning, your rainfly often will be wet from rain or dew.  Collapse your rainfly into the snakeskins and store them separately on the outside of your pack so that  the rainfly will be ready to set up the next evening before you open your pack. Untie the rainfly and snakeskins from the trees, coil them up and attach them to the outside of your pack.  

2/ To pack up your 4Season in the compression sack, start with the hammock tied between two trees with the foam pad in position and all your gear removed. Untie the side tie-outs.  If you have a dry, flat spot you can put the hammock down and roll it up. 

3/ If there is no dry, flat spot, untie the hammock from one tree and start rolling up the hammock and rope toward the other tree into a 7” diameter roll about 40” wide.  Hold the roll between your knees, untie the second rope and tuck it into the roll.

4/ Slip the 7” diameter roll into the compression sack, rotating it as you push the hammock and pad firmly down into the compression sack.  Pull the drawstring closed. 

5/ Pull the cap over the end of the compression sack and tighten down the straps.

That’s how I do it.  If you have any questions, just email them to info@hennessyhammock.com.

Best regards

Tom Hennessy
