    New guy, just got my first hammock

    Hey, just joining the site after buying my first hammock today. Its a Hennessy Hammock Explorer Asym deluxe. I was originally going to get the expedition, but after reading the site the explorer sounded like a better choice for me, as I was pretty close to the height (and weight ) restrictions of it.

    Just set it up in my backyard and was amazed at how quick it sets up! And comfortable too! Only thing that bugs me is I was wearing shorts and the velcro is pretty abrasive on my right leg when getting out. Other than that I love it anc can't wait to take it on its first paddle trip!

    Thanks!

    This is my first time with a hammock like this. When I was in Honduras we had one and I loved napping in it, so I am looking forward to more of that!

    Interested to hear any tips or tricks!

    Welcome the the HFs. There are additional threads available for "donating" members, to include a paddler's thread...

    You'll love taking your hammock kayak camping! Leaves so much more room for extra gear than a tent does. Even if you're just going on day paddles, your hammock will become the one piece of gear you won't leave home without. I love paddling out and finding a perfect little spot for an afternoon snooze.
    The velcro used to bother me too but in a different way...it got stuck in my hair no matter how hard I tried to prevent it. Sold the bottom entry and got the side zip, problem solved!
    Welcome to the forums, you'll find so much information and many helpful people here, you'll be a pro in no time!

    Thanks everyone! I can't wait to get it in my kayak and go for a quick trip! Trouble is there really isn't anywhere close to here for that
