Customization

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.

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.
