It’s a great portable shelter that can be set up quick and easily that provides protection from bugs with mesh netting that runs the full length of the hammock, and a wind/ sun/ rain shelter with the rainfly.

Today was a good day to hike a mountain ended up leaving the house around 1 p.m. and decided to find a trail with less people around ended up heading up to Glen Haven and checked out Signal Mountain trail ended up hiking 4 miles round trip and found this great place to relax and enjoy the sunshine without dealing with the high winds in town. This was a great mini trip as always arriving back home to only pick another spot to see next weekend.
Hennessy Hammock Expedition Zip with the HH Monsoon 30D Rainfly with side panels. First setup was the backyard right off the start I noticed the rainfly was going to give more room underneath the hammock. The side panels will definitely block wind and rain / snow. All tie out points include shock cord and also rope with a stow away pocket for storage of the cords. The tarp weighing 18 oz and you can wrap the hammock and rain fly in the snake skins just as if it was still the regular rain fly.
Solo Adventure to the summit. Mt. Crosier 9,280 ft. 8 miles roundtrip. 10 f Degrees Wind 15-35 mph Decided to camp on top of a mountain ended up finding a spot with a rock wall to block most of the wind that did not stop all night. Tied the rain fly to two different logs to help retain the fly from flying away and using trekking poles to help keep the fly stable. Also collected two flat rocks to block the wind from the open sides of the hammock. All in all it was a great experience. Every time I go outside I learn a small detail I could make better next time. Thats what survival is about making the right decisions and the ability to withstand what nature throws in your path.
Hennessy Hammock expedition zip hanging out up at Island Lake 11,128ft in the Rawah Wilderness Colorado. Surprised to find trees up here awesome place to explore and great fishing 15 miles roundtrip this was a solo trip just like 90 percent of last years camping.
Hennessy Hammock Safari Zip in winter use. After work friday night headed up to the mountains to get some ledgit winter camping under the belt, ended up snowing the whole time from friday at 10:00 P.M. till saturday at 3:00 P.M. decided to make it back to the car since the snow has not let up and with 8" inches of New snow it was going to be a trek back to a car buried with new snow. Always learning something out on the adventures from staying dry, finding dry fire wood, being resourceful with objects laying around. Buried logs in the snow for the rain fly to attach to walls held up good with the snow piling up.
I planned for two nights of camping but ended up making the call to get out of the snow before it was to late. It was a good idea

Thank you Hennessy Hammock. Stoked for the Safari Zip Defiantly like the bigger rainfly and also there is more room to move around. Spent the night warm in the 20's Good solo 5 mile roundtrip hike out to signal mountain
Trekking poles doubled as a way to create more room under the rainfly. Cooking was easy and the hammock provided a nice wind sheld
Found a nice spot to hang out with a good morning hike up to the sunrise.
