What customers say about "Key Specs"
Hennessy Hammock Cub Zip Our Smallest Camping Hammock for Kids
  • Comfortable! I have had some of the best, most peaceful and comfortable night sleeps and naps in my hammock. That's saying a lot from someone with back issues.
  • My son loves this hammock for his Boy Scout camping trips. Its comfortable, compact, lightweight, and it keeps him dry!
  • The material used to make the hammocks is top of the line, and the stitching is strong and neat. No worries about falling out or tearing.
  • Was out for 48 hours in a thunderstorm and it kept me high and dry.
  • Wish it was more compactable for weight and space reasons, but I never fail to take it with me into the wilderness.
Hennessy Hammock Explorer Deluxe Classic XL Series - Built Tough for Emergency Services
  • This is so well made I felt comfortable trying all kinds of different positions. There is plenty of room so I was able to get comfortable and not feel claustrophobic.
  • This is it, this is the hammock camping solution you are likely looking for. It does everything it says it does and does it very well.
  • The quality of materials and workmanship is top notch. If you're just starting out with hammock camping and thinking about a Hennessy... don't hesitate!
  • It's easy to enter/exit, and durable. Very comfortable to sleep in, no bugs or rain inside, pouch to hold keys/phone etc inside tent.
  • It is simply an amazing hammock. It is very easy to set up, especially if you have the snake skin, it is very well built, it is super comfortable.
  • It works really well, but if you are a backpacker/trail hiker it might take up more room than you want.

What customers say about "Features"
Hennessy Hammock Cub Zip Our Smallest Camping Hammock for Kids
  • I have used mine in the rain, in cold hot and mild weather, with rain fly and without. I stayed completely dry and so did my pack with rain cover underneath.
  • The built-in screen protects me from the mosquitos and other bugs. Wow! No need to purchase a separate bug screen.
  • The zippers are strong and well made. Nice, easy, smooth zipping. No snags! The pocket inside, along the ridge line, is very nice and convenient.
  • Beautifully made hammock. Lots of fantastic features and details like the tarp prusic knot with hook and the round hooks at ends of hammock. Great little hammock.
  • Was out for 48 hours in a thunderstorm and it kept me high and dry.
  • This hammock is awesome but i would get one a little bigger.
Hennessy Hammock Explorer Deluxe Classic XL Series - Built Tough for Emergency Services
  • Fly could be shaped better, wind can bring moisture in. Bug netting works well.
  • The fabric is tough and the constitution of the hammock is as good as it gets. It has room to spare inside and I can sleep flat or on my side if I like.
  • It sets up fast and uses only two stakes to hold both the hammock and tarp in place. It will keep the high winds and blowing rain from getting to you.
  • Wind and the chill of the night were not a problem. Entrance and exit of the hammock could not be easier. There is a dry line on the inside to hang items from.
  • Really nice hammock, well made. Excellent value over brick and mortar sources or company web site. Great design except for the bottom entry.
  • The entry from the bottom is odd. If you sleep with a pad good luck. the fly is way too small to protect against a blowing rain.
