    Need cheap 1st hammock

    Would like a Hennessy to start. Tent camper, but my back and hips say "no more!" Mature woman, 5'3", on budget, and have to replace some gear. Thanks a lot.

    I'm suspecting a 'mature woman' owns a sewing machine or at least has access to one. In this forum you will find many wonderful ideas and patterns to make your own. Many have done this and have videos or pics describing their process of making very good hammocks and tarps. There is even a hennessy clone thread here that will help you.

    good luck.

    Greetings

    Check the for sale area on this site. There are some Hennessy Hammocks listed. Also if you visit the main website for Hennessy Hammocks they have their odds and ends sale going on for demo, seconds and clearance items.

    Check it out.

    Cheers

    Pretty nice deal on a Hennessy Ultralite Backpacker Asym with skins and straps over in the for sale section...

    http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=10750

    I would have bought one of these myself if I hadn't already killed my bank account this summer buying other gear.

    Welcome to the forums, BTW!

    you should go to the HH site and request the list of current items they have in the odds and ends sale. It does not last forever so if you are still looking, get on it soon.

    Avalonmorn:
    You may want to look at this set up http://www.campmor.com/outdoor/gear/Product___40707. My lady friend really loves hers. I had to get here this one or I would have lost my Clark NX-200, and that was not going to happen!

    Its not a bad price for what you get. Here is a photo of her in it on the first test run:
