The Hennessy Hammock is the most innovative solution to lightweight, comfortable camping on the planet. Now you can build your perfect hammock with our "Customize" feature.
At last, you will never need to find a level campsite. No more roots, rocks or puddles coming through the floor of your tent. No more aching muscles and stiff joints from sleeping on the hard ground. And no more carrying a heavy tent. Finally, a shelter that takes the pain out of the outdoors and is good for the environment.
Why buy a Hennessy Hammock?
Tom Hennessy has been camping in jungle hammocks for over 60 years and designing his own models since 1984. In 1999, REI credited Tom with singlehandedly creating an entirely new segment in the outdoor industry and since then has revolutionized the camping experience with his five patented features.
Tom is a perfectionist so every hammock he designs is uncompromising in materials and workmanship. There are countless tiny improvements that only 20 years of testing could produce but you can feel as soon as you stretch out in his hammock and close your eyes.
Hennessy Hammock is a complete shelter system for one price. Some competitors' hammocks seem cheaper until you add up the cost of all the parts, then you find that they often cost more, weigh more and are bulkier in your pack than a Hennessy.
All Hennessy Hammocks come complete with attached "no see um" mosquito mesh, an elastic "hold open" for the mesh, detachable rain fly, support ropes, a gear loft on the ridge line and stuff sack with set up instructions on back. Hennessy Hammock also provides complimentary 42", 72" or 96" long "Tree Hugger" webbing straps to protect the tender bark of trees. Because these accessory webbing straps are complementary, they are weighed separately from the hammock.
A complete line of specialty hammocks
Hennessy Hammock has a complete line of specialty hammocks, including jungle hammocks, double bottom hammocks, winter hammocks, camos, ultralights, and the right size and weight for anyone up to 350 lbs. Hennessy Hammocks come in five different lengths from 9 to 12 feet long.
Designed and tested for six years before going into production
Tom Hennessy traveled for six years and made over 50 prototypes before going into production and being granted 5 patents for his revolutionary shelters. The Hennessy Hammock brings truly new features to jungle hammocks with a range of models for every purpose. The Hennessy Hammock is a totally new design for camping hammocks with patents in the U.S., Canada and Internationally. It has been tested in Canada, the U.S., Central and South America, Borneo, Australia, Africa, the Congo and even the Arctic and other extreme and hostile environments around the world.
Amazingly Comfortable Asymmetrical shape
Experience a level of comfort on the trail almost as good as your bed at home and maybe even better. The patented asymmetrically shaped hammock supports your back like a quality mattress off the ground. Tall or large campers and campers with injuries, arthritis or bone spurs and back pain tell us about finding their first night of comfortable camping in many years in the larger Explorer Deluxe or Safari Deluxe models. You will wake up in the morning feeling great. Some owners of Hennessy Hammocks claim that they come home from their adventure feeling better than when they left. Some hikers have tossed out their beds when they got home from a hike and set up their hammock in the house.
A revolutionary piece of camping gear
If you have been shopping around looking at ultralight camping gear as an alternative to a heavy tent, this might be the best piece of outdoor gear that you ever buy!
- Quick and easy setup and packs up in 2-3 minutes.
- Reduced bulk and pack weight means you travel faster and further each day.
- Same comfortable bed every night over rocky, muddy, wet or sloping terrain
- Never touches the ground. Stays clean and dries fast.
- Bug proof mosquito net for protection from malaria-carrying mosquitoes, leishmaniasis-bearing sand flies, poisonous insects and small reptiles while sleeping in tropical and subtropical areas.
Leave No Trace
The Hennessy Hammock has almost zero impact and is an excellent example of a “Leave No Trace” shelter.
All of our Hennessy Hammock models are provided with complimentary "Tree hugger" webbing straps to protect the tender bark of trees. The smaller the diameter of the tree, the more times the webbing straps go around the tree to spread the load. The environmentally friendly design requires no ground leveling, trenching or staking. When you walk away from your campsite, there will be no tent footprint and almost no sign that you were ever there.
