    Anyone 6'2 use the Hennessy Expedition Asysm Zip

    Just wondering I'm 6'2" and am looking at one of these used, but on the website it recommends a limit of 6'. I'm thinking there might be some margin for error there...anyone with first hand experience??
    Thanks

    I'm 6'2" and own both an Expedition and Explorer. Trust me, you won't like the Expedition if you're over 6'.

    I'm 5'9" and I find the Expedition a bit too short for me. I think you will find it too short also. You may like the Explorer Ultralite or standard Explorer much better. If you aren't worried about weight, the HH Safari is a big comfortable hammock. I have the DJ XL and it is wonderful. Good luck to you, and this is just my $.02.

    Hate mine. Took it out 2 nights and started looking for one for taller people. For the price I ended up with a Dream Hammock dual layer 1.1 Dangerbird68. I am much happier and was almost driven back to the ground by my HH experience because I thought there would be wiggle room in that spec.

    The Mrs is well under 6 feet, and now she loves that hammock.
