How-to: Set Up SnakeSkins

Remember: Free SnakeSkins are included with each hammock ordered through Hennessy Hammock's online store. SnakeSkins can be purchased separately here.

SnakeSkins: The instant stuff sack

SnakeSkins are an instant stuff sack system that collapses your Hennessy Hammock in about 30 seconds. Your shelter never touches the ground, never gets dirty or muddy. It just disappears into two tapering tubes of silnylon which sit gathered on the ropes at each end of the hammock for amazingly quick set up and take down. For use with all Hennessy Hammock models. The 70 D poly hex fly requires an additional pair of SnakeSkins because the hex fly is bulkier than the standard rainfly.

How to use

One minute or less to pack!

The entire hammock, netting and rainfly can be packed into two skinny 1/2 oz. tubes of silnylon which are an instant stuff sack.

Just tie the hammock up between two trees in about a minute, slide the skins off the hammock onto the rope at each end of the rainfly in less than ten seconds, clip the side cords out to nearby foliage and pile in.

After a short rest, pop out through the bottom entrance like a born-again adventure racer, unclip the side cords and drop them into the folds of the rainfly and slide the SnakeSkins on as the hammock, mesh and rainfly instantly disappear inside the SnakeSkin.

Untie the hammock from one tree, coil it up as you walk to the other tree, untie that end and throw it into your pack or tie it onto the outside, all in probably less than a minute.

A Special Message to Our Customers
It has been a strange summer but we’ve had so much positive feedback from customers about the wonderful times they have had out camping in their hammocks. There’s still time to get out there before the weather changes. We just want you to know that we are here if you have any questions.

Our shippers in the US, Canada, UK, and EU have done a wonderful job of shipping in a timely way; however, holiday shopping is starting to rev up already with more people shopping online. We encourage people to order early to be sure they get their gear on time.
