    Question about the Hennessy snake skins/doing a DIY version.

    I'm looking at just snake skinning my Expedition Asym, not with the fly attached. Hennessy appears to be only selling the XL one, does anyone have experience with it using it on just the hammock? Is there a lot extra space? I want a nice tight fit.

    My other thought was to make my own, does anyone have the dimensions needed for DIY snake skins for the Expedition Asym?

    Thanks

    I just put on some new snakeskin xl's on my expedition and safari. I use a separate tarp so it doesn't go inside the snakeskins with hammocks, and I wouldn't say there is a lot of extra room... I'd say the snakeskins slide on easier, and you can fold up the "skinned" hammock easier.

    That "tight fit" on the snakeskins won't make things any easier, really. Makes it a bit tougher to slide the skins on and get rid of that 'knot' that forms in the middle when you're skinning the tarp or hammock, and it's harder to fold the 'snake' into a manageable shape if the skins are really full.

    Thanks for the info, maybe I'll get the snake skins XL for my hammock and do the dollar store scrubby thing for my tarp. And save my fabric for a bag cover

    Seshan,
    I think Hennessy only makes one size of skins these days?
    I can put my expedition and monsoon tarp into them with a tight fit, hammock fits easily on its own.
    Cheers

    Get the XLs and then order a set of mesh tarp skins from cottage vendor Mountain Goat.

    Hennessy only has one size for sale anymore, and they are the xl version.

    This is my HH Explorer Deluxe with the SS undercover attached, in the HH snakeskins. Fit is snug, no loose spots at all.
