Hate Setting Up Tents? Try Hammock Camping.

I’ve been reevaluating my camping gear setup, and I’ve decided to add a piece of gear that makes it a little easier to setup camp for an evening. I’m using the Henessy Hammock Expedition Edition and so far I’ve been really happy with it. It’s easy to setup and take down. It packs small, and only weighs 2.5lbs.

Here is a video giving a tour of all the features, such as:

  • Pack size
  • Weight
  • Mosquito netting
  • Entry through the bottom of the hammock
  • Space in the hammock
  • Rain fly

    I happen to own a hennessy hammock,in fact the expedition. I’ve used it a couple of times. Basically it’s pretty comfortable. There are a couple of considerations with it though: One, if it’s cold out, or getting cooler, like entering Fall for example, you’ll need some padding/insulation under you, because there is none, and the cold air will penetrate right up into your body, even with your sleeping bag (unless it’s a winter bag, I guess). Two, and obviously, it’s pretty useless where there are no trees of other posts to hang it from, like out in the desert. Ideally, I’d carry both the hammock and a small bivy tent while bike camping, but that’s not really an option as far as I’m concerned, so one has to choose based on circumstances, locale, temps, etc.

    I took this on my ride around Southern Africa. It is surprisingly hard to find 2 trees a fair amount away from the road that you can actually reach through the thick brush.
