Ultralite Backpacker Zip
Ultralite Backpacker Zip
Side entrance with zipper closure and a strong YKK zipper with two double sliders
At one pound fifteen ounces this is our most popular Zip model for ultralight backpackers on the long trails who need a shelter that is comfortable, compact and built to last. We know of one hiker who did 17000 miles / 25000 km including the Triple Crown in three years with one Ultralite Backpacker.
The Ultralite Backpacker Zip has our asymmetrical shape and structural ridge line patents to ensure exceptional comfort and a perfect set up every time.
Swap out the standard rainfly for the larger, heavier, polyester Asym Hex Rainfly using the green Customize button.

Build Your Own
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 instead of buying more than you need.
FREE LONGER WEBBING STRAPS: In some areas of the world, longer webbing straps are needed. Our stock webbing strap is 42" / 107 cm long which is fine for trees which are 14" / 36 cm in diameter. Now you can get a free upgrade to longer 72" / 83 cm straps for trees up to 24" / 60 cm in diameter or 96" / 244 cm straps for trees up to 36" / 91 cm 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 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.
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.
