    Wonder if TH is thinking double use for the SS OCF pad. Hmmm.

    I like the Grey color better than my Coyote Brown.

    The one sided zipper for the bugnet flopped over the ridgeline seems unsophisticated compared to my ZQ mod.

    Great report but so far,
    The hyperlite fabric is a tan ripstop

    Out of my price range. Way out. If they were the same price as the regular HH, I might have bought one.

    Guess I'll jump in the line for a BB and Yeti...
    Ouch! For that price, you could almost get a Clark NA. At least you have zippers on both sides, you get a tarp with it, and the weathershield built in.

    It will be interesting to see how his new version sells mainly due to price...

    I'll let you know in a year. It is very comfortable fabric and doesn't seem to stretch too much for me.

    What are ya gonna do? It also says made in BC (forget the town). Glad to see he is being straight with his labeling. I know there were some questions in the past. Looks like he's decided to end that argument.

    For good reason IMO. The Hennessy are quite functional hammocks and I think they have their own strengths, but they really don't compare to those 'Colorado hammocks'. Still, the more hammocks the more better!

    $290 is falt out crazy for just the hammock. I sure hope he is throwing in a fly of some kind when it goes retail. Yeah, the Clarks are starting to look cheap. Glad I only paid what I did. I might be able to double my investment on Ebay in a few months.

    I thought putting this hammock out there was Hennessy's competition against Brandon. Guess not if it's double the price....

    Don't take this wrong, but you're probably the worst person on this forum to test a hammocks durability. It's hard for me to imagine you sleeping in the same hammock for a year, when you have 100 of them sitting around, begging to be used.

    From your pictures that fabric looks like it's Dyneema gridstop, in which case it's probably very durable. I've never actually seen a Hyperlight, but I didn't think that's the stuff that they were made out of though.

    Now, what I really don't understand is what makes this design a "deep jungle" design, or why a design that's exactly the same only with a second layer in silnylon's a "deep winter."

    I'm not seeing why using the sil is better in the winter than it would be in a jungle. Did TH explain any of that kind of thing to you when you spoke?

    Yeah, but it's Cannibal. The smell and grime alone is 10 times the average person, so you can count 10 days of testing to every one of a normal person. And he has that hammock gymnastics thing going for him, as well.

    I certainly wouldn't want a sil hammock in the summer - not breathable. You would wake up in a pool of condensation every morning, if you made it that long. For winter, it isn't as big of a deal, which is why I assume they made it with an outer layer of sil. Slide the pad between the hyperlite material and the sil outer layer, and you would have a pretty effective vapor barrier built in.

    There are about 50 ways to Sunday to accomplish that...none of them include a seperate hammock that you can only use for 3-5 months a year, IMO.
    Of course, average internet hammock shoppers don't know that...that is were WE come in!

    I might be wrong, but the only Dyneema material I've seen comes in at 4 oz/yd. (are there other weights?)
    A hammock made out of that would be bombproof...and IMO, too heavy to carry.

    I still think 2Q and ZQ's zipper mod looks better
