Courtney writes in about an unexpected bonus feature of her Hennessy Hammock

I love your hammocks and I have a small anecdote if your interested.  My job involves camping in remote regions of BC's central coast for months at a time.  Did you know that in BC's temperate rain forests, banana slugs, can comprise up to 70% of total animal biomass and be nearly 30 cm in length! Before I switched to a hammock, I slept in a tent and let me tell you, those guys got in everything, even sealed totes.  They are incorrigible.  The bane of my existence camping in the forest.  Once they invade, your tent, your pack, whatever - you can't move them, as soon as you touch them, they start to slime, huge globs of the stuff and nothing (not soap, water, isopropyl alcohol, a good scrub with sand) will remove it.  You just have to learn to live with them - that was until I switched to a hennessy hammock.  I switched because I was over sleeping on uneven forest ground (my sleep much improved, thank you!) but an unintended miracle was; no more slugs!  The scoundrels clearly couldn't be bothered to climb up a (leafless) tree trunk and across the line, so thank you for a slug free summer!

Webbing Strap Sale

Now you won’t have to pay more to get the right strap for your new hammock. Because of our concern for the environment and protecting trees from hammock rope damage, the Hennessy Hammock team has decided to reduce the price of our longer webbing straps so that all straps are the same low price.   Also, any person who owns any brand of hammock without webbing straps can also buy a pair of any standard size or length for less than $10 plus postage from Hennessy Hammock.

Introducing The Leaf Hammock

All New LEAF Hammock!

We are very excited about introducing our new green "Leaf" hammock, the first full size Hennessy Hammock made specially for open top lounging.  The Leaf has our patented asymmetrical shape and ridgeline to ensure a perfect set up every time.  It also features the same high quality construction, durable fabric,  ropes and webbing straps as our legendary camping hammocks. The Leaf is lightweight and packable, perfect to take along on a picnic or camp-out for sitting, napping or reading.  It's also a great stay-at-home hammock which would enhance any back yard or dorm room.

Happy campers: This season's best tents for your summer trip - Globe and Mail

There’s no doubting the Deep Jungle’s cred. When British explorer Ed Stafford walked the length of the Amazon River in 2008 – a feat that earned him a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records – it was the tent he brought with him, made by the family-owned company on Galiano Island, in British Columbia. For that reason – along with its featherweight and its quick assembly – it will appeal to hard-core campers. But there’s much for lazers to like, too. Think of falling asleep in a hammock on a lazy summer day. Then imagine you have a mosquito cover to keep the bugs away, a fly above you to shield you from rain and an insulation pad underneath you to keep you warm. Logistically, you’ll need to find trees or some other secure post to tie the hammock to. And obviously, given its size, you’re not bringing kids along. But putting it up can be done in only a few minutes, and you’ll sleep like a baby with no worries of ever having a tree root digging into your back.
