    New Hanger (upstate NY)

    hey everyone just making a quick post!

    I first got into camping 2 years ago. My first time camping was in a tent with my friend. He is like a pro. He tought me everything i know to date and does trail crews reguraly. so back to me. i bought my first hammock just over a year ago. It was a hammock bliss with a mosquito net. And went camping in it once becasue i got into it on the mosquito net side late at night and it tore. then after that i was on the look for a new hammock. later my friend told me about the HH hammocks and i did some resherch and finaly bought one. and man am i happy i got that. i still have it today with some mods that my friend did. he replaced the rope at the end with amsteel and a kind of not that allows you to shorten it or legnthin it. and so thats pretty much where i am today. currently i am looking at underquilts and the HH SuperShelter and trying to decide which one is better. if anyone has any advice for me plz let me know.

    Thanks
    Chris

    Welcome to the forums from Kentucky. I am not a Hennessy user, but I expect you'll get some feedback soon. There are some strong opinions (both ways) on the SS.
