    i know this is an old post BUT....

    well after 3 years of heavy reviewing in guyana and peru i can confirm this hammock is awesome and the zip is still exactly the same. ive probably spent over 300 nights in this hammock.

    i havent been using the garda hitch... just one twist round a caribiner, pull to desired tightness and then stick in a quick release knot.

    even that has had its toll on the spectre chord and the sheath is a bit fluffy in places but its stilll holding strong and shows no sign of breaking.

    i FINALLY broke my snake skins after 5 years of use.... over zealous tug and one side popped at the thin end....

    hennessy have sent me a pair of their new funnels but i missed them in the uk so i havent tried them out yet... will use them in malawi in september/october time...

    ive used the DJ with and without a pad (never with the actual one hennessy gave me as it was too bulky) also with a therma rest (slightly inflated but not too much), with duvets, sleeping bags, pillows, blankets, in wet season, dry season, mosquitos, no mosquitos, towns, villages, cloud forest, savana, high jungle, low jungle, net rolled back, net zipped up, with oversized tarp, no tarp, camping, for work, for fun and for emergencies...

    all in all i can say its still going strong and if it should ever fail... i will definitely ask hennessy for another!

    great bit of kit!

    Ok, you win for the best long term test of a hammock I think. I have a deep jungle as well. Love it.

    Now that is quite the endorsement! This gear update should put to rest anyone's concerns about the durability of a HH.

    Cheers

    You were my inspiration for going Hennessey for my hammocks and I definitely value your opinion! It sounds like a great hammock!

    I appreciate the response man! Yea I adopted your garda hitch method years ago as well, you're one the first guys to be putting out videos about hammocks from back in the day. I believe you influenced alot of people with your garda hitch videos. Haha and thank you, if im ever in Peru ill look you up! Its an honor!
