    If you go to a used car lot, you'll see lots of Fords and Chevys, but not near as many Volkswagons.

    That's because there are more Fords and Chevys in the country than there are Volkswagons. It doesn't mean that Volkswagons are better cars, although you would have people argue on both sides of that opinion.

    Same same with the Hennessy.

    One reason you don't see many ENOs and GTs for sale is because they started out inexpensive and it just isn't worth selling them---even if you get half your money back, it just ain't worth the time and effort. At the price they could reasonably be sold used, most folks would rather get one brand new for just a bit more. With a Hennesy, you have something that will at least get you more than $20 when you re-sell it. You an get into one for around $200 and you an sell it for anywhere from $100 to $150. They hold their value very well. While some folks who want a hammock would pay $50 for a new ENO rather than $25 for a used one, they might pay $100 for a used Hennesy that originally sold for $150-175.

    There's side entry on my Deep Jungle, I'd assume its the same on the others. You just have to get used to pulling the zipper at the foot end part way down before getting into it and laying down---its kinda hard to reah up and get it one you're laying flat.

    Works great otherwise. And it lets Scout The Wonder Dog know that I'm awake and getting up.

    They have the side entry option on their "new" stuff, and there's a zipper mod. I've had the zipper mod done, not as nice as the side entry on my clark but decent enough.

    My first hammock was a HH ULBA. I still have it, then I bought a Hyperlite with the velcro entrance, and then a WBBB 1.7oz. When HH came out with the Hyperlite Zip, I got one and it's been my favorite ever since.

    What I like about HHs is the more mesh-to-body fabric ratio. That allows for better ventilation. The WBBB is nice with the fancy footbox and shelf features, but truth be told, when I lay in it I feel like I'm inside a bath tub. The bugnet sits to high and it does not improve ventilation. I use it when I camp in cooler weather, but for the most part I keep it as a loaner.

    I'm currently getting a custom-built Dream Hammock, but I doubt that I will ever part with my HHs.

    Hikers are buying up the Hennessy stock like it's going out of style and he sells out in the first few days ....
    I bought my HH A-sym Ultralight from Tom Hennessey at Trail Days '05 and it's still my hammock, though I have modified it more than once. If 2QZQ had not done the zipper mod for me, I would have sold my HH, but that fixed the major drawback. I've never had a problem with it being a "lemon" at all.

    I think there is a real "fad" issue with hammock buyers. Wanting the latest thing is a powerful influence.

    I LOVE my HH. I have read a bit about some of the others, but I subscribe to the "if it aint broke don't fix it" philosophy. I'm perfectly happy with my HH Explorer. Are there better option out there? Maybe, but the fact is I am perfectly happy with what I have. I'm not an experienced hanger... I've done one 3 night trip (including one big storm) in mine, and probably 6 or 7 nights in my backyard, but to me, its awesome and I love it. Definitely not a lemon to me. I went with HH because thats what my local outdoors store carries. I ended up seeing it on a local outdoors forum and that sparked my interest, then I saw it at the outdoors store and asked, and the salesperson took it out and showed me how it works, and I left without buying one, but kept thinking about it. So I went back a week later and bought it
