Build Your Own Hammock


Classic bottom entry with velcro closure

The Explorer Ultralite Classic XL camping hammock was designed for anyone up to 250 lbs. / 114 kg and 7' / 213 cm tall and has our patented asymmetrical shape and structural ridge line to ensure exceptional comfort and a perfect set up every time.

It also has the same high performance materials, proportions and protection as the smaller Ultralite Backpacker. If you are really close to 6 feet tall and you want the luxury of extra space, this would be a good choice.

Swap out the standard rainfly for the larger, heavier, polyester Asym Hex Rainfly, at no additional cost using the green Customize button.

Now you can mix and match hammock parts for your specific needs. As you will see, sometimes there is only a small price increase to get exactly what you want.

FREE LONGER WEBBING STRAPS:  In some areas of the world longer straps are needed. Our stock webbing strap is 42" /107 g long which is fine for trees up to 14" (36 g) in diameter.  Now you can get a free upgrade to longer 72' / 183 g straps for trees up to 24" / 60 g in diameter or 96" / 244 g straps for trees up to 36" / 91 g in diameter.

BIGGER RAINFLY: You can keep the standard rain fly or get one that is bigger or one that provides the maximum storm protection.

INSULATION DESIGNED FOR EVERY HENNESSY HAMMOCK:  Most places in the world, even jungles, require some insulation at night especially at altitude. We offer two choices with different temperature ranges. Both of these systems have insulation pads that are wider and will protect your arms and shoulders much better than the standard tent pad.

What's Included

All Hennessy Hammocks come complete with attached mosquito netting, detachable rain fly, support ropes, and stuff sack with set up instructions on back. Hennessy Hammock also provides complimentary standard 42" / 107 cm long "Tree Hugger" webbing straps to protect the bark of trees. Because these accessory webbing straps are complimentary, they are weighed separately from the hammock.
