Hennessy Hammock Tarp

They are our largest, strongest, and roomiest hammock, with heavy-duty bottom fabric and ropes that are 6 times stronger than the weight limit. They are also our most comfortable hammock for larger people or even for cozy couples whose combined weight does not exceed 350 lbs / 160 kg. These models include a big, double wide hex-shaped rainfly, ideal for hunting, car camping, boat camping, out at the cottage or in the backyard.

The Classic model has an ingenious entrance through the bottom that snaps closed automatically under the weight of your body and seals with velcro. Mosquitoes can’t figure out how you disappeared standing outside your hammock and magically re-appeared lying comfortably inside.

The model has a side entrance with a full length heavy duty YKK zipper and two double sliders; mesh can be pulled back and secured with an elastic so you can watch the stars on clear, bug free nights.

The Hennessy Hammock Tarp has a double layer bottom with 40d nylon for 100% mosquito protection and to hold the Heat-Reflecting DoubleBubble Pad between the layers and on the correct diagonal. One of the nicest things about the Jungle models is to climb into your hammock with your sleeping bag and not have to think about keeping an insulation pad from moving around under you during the night.

The double bottom jungle models are designed for temperatures down to 40F / 4C. when used with the accessory Heat-Reflecting DoubleBubble Pad.

A Complete Shelter System

The Hennessy Hammock is a legendary piece of camping and survival equipment and has been the choice of epic expeditions exploring the full length of the Nile, Congo and Amazon Rivers, up to the Arctic, down into the deepest caves on Earth, and other extreme environments around the world. Every Hennessy is a complete, engineered shelter system. Built tough for years of service, every hammock is uncompromising in materials and workmanship.

All Hennessys include webbing straps, tightly woven fabrics and high quality support ropes, a matching detachable rainfly, a “no see um” mosquito mesh, a gear loft on the ridge line and a stuff sack with set up instructions on the back. Built tough for years of service, all of our support ropes and webbing straps are six times stronger than the weight rating of the hammock.

We believe it is essential to include complementary webbing straps with each hammock to prevent damage to the tender bark of small trees. The Hennessy Hammock has almost zero impact and is an excellent example of a “Leave No Trace” shelter.

Amazingly Comfortable

Tall or large campers and campers with injuries, sore joints.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 report that they tossed out their beds when they got home from a hike and set up their hammock in the house.

  • It’s a shelter that takes the pain out of the outdoors and protects the environment.
  • Extend your seasonal use by adding accessory insulation systems.
  • Countless tiny improvements over 40 years of effort and design.

Asymmetrical Design

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 and knees like a quality contoured mattress off the ground.

Unique Bottom Entry

Patented entrance on the bottom automatically snaps closed under the weight of your body and seals with velcro.

The “Classic” bottom entry works great when you are being followed by a cloud of mosquitoes. When you duck your head down to open the bottom entrance, the mosquitoes don’t know what you’re doing, so they get out of the way for a few seconds. Before they know what’s happened, the door has snapped shut and you are on the inside and they are on the outside.

Side Zipper Entry

Zips closed with a full length, heavy duty #10 YKK zipper on one side between the mesh and the bottom fabric.

One advantage of the zip model is that it’s a little easier to set up your bedding but the mosquitoes also find it easier follow you in and join you for a snack later, so double check for intruders before you zip up for the night.

Evolved Hammocks

Hennessy Hammock is a small family run company whose only mission is to continually improve the evolution of hammock design.

The inventor, Tom Hennessy, has been sleeping in hammocks for over 60 years and experimenting with designs for over 40 years. He made over 50 prototypes and beta-tested his designs for six years before getting patents and going into production.

Thoughtful Details

Triangular Mesh Gear Pocket, Glove Hooks, Carabiner Loops, and included Webbing Straps.

A nifty gear pocket slides on the ridgeline and stores out of sight behind your head. Two glove hooks are also threaded on the ridgeline and can be used for attaching LED lights and even attaching a drink can by the hole in the pull tab. All hammock ridge lines are installed with a loop on each inside hammock end to which a small carabiner can be hooked to hold daypacks, water bottles, and other small items which are too heavy to hang over the ridge line.
