    Hennessy Discount

    ok so i got a new job as of about a month ago at Mystery Ranch,
    the coolest backpack company in the world.
    anyways we have a huge list of venders that we get good deals on, and hennessy happens to be on there at a whopping 50% off, so while i love my warbonnet, and have made a few of my own, i figure at 50% off i might as well get one to see what all the fuss is about.
    i was looking at the deep jungle.
    has anyone had any experience with it,
    im glad they started coming out with the side zipper, and though i have an underquilt, i like how that one has a double layer,
    thanks for your help.

    The Deep Jungles are fine hammocks. Feels the same as the Explorer models, minus the bottom entry. I really like the fabric they use; very soft. The double layer is a nice option for a pad user. The Deep Jungles are my favorite HH model so far.
    Trust nobody!

    That is awesome that you are working for them. I knew that Dana Designs went out of business, but am super happy to see that Dana Gleason has started up a new company. Dana Design packs were by far my favorite company for packs. They are so comfortable and carry a load like no other. I have a Dana that I bought a over 10 years ago and use it a couple times a year for longer trips, and have never had a problem with it.

    I also ordered my first hammock, HH Explorer Deluxe w/ hex tarp, last week. UPS said it should be here today. Will give it a whirl over the weekend and let you all know how it goes.

    Horray for HH and for Mystery Mountain!!!

    I have a DJ(long) and I love it. The fabric is very soft and doesn't make the noise that some other fabrics make when you move around in it. The reflective pad works amazingly well. I used it this past winter - reflective pad between the layers with a zero degree sleeping bag - & was comfortable at 15 degrees (F). Now my buddies with Explorers have bought the same material at Lowes & use it in their hammocks.
    Hung this spring with a shorter CCF pad with great success. Don't remember exact temperatures; maybe around 50.
    I just came back from a 4 night trip with lows in the mid 60's. Left the reflective pad at home & just used my 40 degree sleeping bag (was a little more than I needed). GREAT nights!
    I stuck with the stock/diamond tarp and have never been wet. Alot of people get a larger tarp and suspend it separatly (which is good), but I kept the original to save weight. I keep it connected to the hammock suspension, so when the hammock goes down, so does the tarp. Tarp stays close to the hammock so you don't need more tarp to maintain coverage.

    Good to know on the pad. I agree on the excellent coverage provided by the stock tarp when attached to the hammock. But have you done anything, any tricks, to deal with the loose tarp after you get in? Or is it just not that much of a problem for you? I have to use various tricks to quiet the thing down in the wind. Good coverage though, virtually bomb proof when used with the HH SS.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    I don't worry about the "loose" tarp. I had some thoughts about small bungies, etc before my trip last week, but when I set up & looked at it, I decided that the center (ridgeline) of the tarp is loose, but the edges are tight all the way around, corner to corner. It flaps a little when I'm not in it, and it doesn't really change when I get in. The rain has never pooledon the tarp, so I decided to just leave it alone. I know the tarp is tight around the edges, so I just consider the flapping to be a soothing bedtime lulaby.
