The Hennessy Hammock Ultralight Backpacker and Hennessy Hammock Extreme Racer are well made backpacking hammocks. The Hennessy Hammock design is more comfortable than any other backpacking hammock we've tried, and hits the sub-two-pound sweet spot for a lightweight, fully-enclosed, solo shelter. This Hennessy Hammock review discusses materials and constructions, ease of entry/exit, gear organization, features and specifications, comfort, insect protection, cold weather use, rain, wind, and snow resistance, condensation resistance, and durability. The Hennessy Hammock is reviewed well, with an overall grade of A minus, but the user should be aware of some caveats when using the hammock (these limitations are discussed herein). In short, considering the increasing number of backpacking hammocks that are available on the outdoor specialty market, the Hennessy Hammock is a solid performer.
