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.

Deep powder/ windy weather/ winter camping

Fresh Tracks trekking through the woods

Trekking through the real deep snow I've wanted to find and test out the MSR Denalis proved to float better with the 6" inch tails. 3'-4' of powder was around this weekend. It was a first for that much snow winter camping. Photo Props: Lane

This was our base camp for the night our front yard was a perfect place to snowboard on. Next time....

This weekend made it up to the Snowy Range Mountains to get some ledgit winter camping under the belt. The Hennessy Hammock proved to be a great shelter the bigger rain fly is key to being able to have some living room area under windy conditions. Ended up hiking around 3 miles roundtrip near the top we walked off the trail to find fresh new snow to camp near. The mornings sunrise was a great view from the mountain we were on facing east.

Lane's setup Alps Mountaineering tent

Lane and I made a very nice snow wall all around the fire. Even with the high walls the smoke would get bad when fire needed more wood. It takes a lot of energy moving around on a mountain and when things go wrong it gets frustrating but the reward always out balances everything and it seems to be a test from mother nature.

Hennessy Hammock Safari Zip 2013

Morning sunshine in the Hennessy Hammock woke me up so I climbed out to get some photographs. Burying the side of the rain fly into the snow proved to be a great wind shelter wall to keep the wind away

We camped on a epic place to snowboard on. Next time I will have my snowboard Good times

Lane descending down into the valley about 30 seconds later the snow almost gave out from under his feet. This happened a few other times so we decided to stay of flat ground when we were exploring without the heavy back packs.

We both had some new snow shoes to try out and this weekend was a ledgit place to test them out.

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.
