Hennessy hammocks have earned their strong reputation in the industry. They have consistently provided the most innovative solutions to enjoying the great outdoors. The Scout Zip hammock features their “Original” non asymmetrical model with updated features. It now has a larger asymmetrical rainfly to improve head and feet coverage, when laying diagonally. The headroom of the hammock is for anyone up to 5′ 8″.
The designer founder Tom Hennessy, combines a life-long love of hammocks with a passion for innovation. He has been sleeping in hammocks for over 60 years. His experiences continue to drive and shape they way the company designs hammocks.
In 1999 they launched their first product which was a six-year personal design challenge for Tom. It was a bottom entry expedition sized model, a one-size fits all sturdy hammock system. They also introduced the unique patented entrance through the bottom. The product was a success but their customers wanted more. Their follow-up was the super comfortable asymmetrical shape, another ground breaking innovation. Adventure racers and long distance backpackers asked for an ultralight hammock. The Ultralight Backpacker was launched followed by the Hyperlite model. Meeting the demands of taller people was the next goal. The results were the Explorer Deluxe, the Explorer Ultralight and the Survivor. Finally there is the The Safari for super-sized comfort, completing the “Classic” bottom entry series.
The Scout Zip hammock like all Hennessy hammocks come complete with all the following accessories. Attached mosquito netting, detachable rain fly, support ropes, and stuff sack with set up instructions on back. Hennessy Hammock also provides complimentary standard 42″ long “Tree Hugger” webbing straps to protect the bark of trees.
