I set out to review the Hennessy Hammock Explorer Deluxe Asym from the aspect of a survival or bug out shelter. What I ended up with was a piece of gear that has revolutionized my bug out bag. One night in the Hennessy Hammock and you may as well just toss the old tent, you’re never going to sleep on the ground again.

as long as you have two sturdy trees, which isn't always the case. i have been looking at the same system myself, probably will get one. it would be nice if they had sleeves to run some fiberglass poles to use it as a tent also.
with a safety harness and some effort you could go up 20 feet in the air and improve your chances of staying hidden when the need arises

You don't need too much of a tree. 3 or 4 inches in diameter will do.

I just gave away a 4 part sleep system. They weigh almost 10 lbs and are as big as my entire pack. Don't get me wrong, they work, but they are just waaaay too big.

I have spent a couple of nights in one of these and they have my fullest recommendation!

They say that patience is it's own
REWARD,
while this is wise and true,
with enough patience comes
COMPASSION
and this always seem
TO BE THE ANSWER.

have you ever slept on an iceberg? i have, and that is the capability of that system. pack light and freeze at night. it is a 4 part system, sometimes i just take the patrol bag, which is around 2 pounds and very small, or if i just want to hang out in the rain and observe i take the bivy bag crawl in and stay dry
if you winter camp in a hammock you have to insulate it underneath and use an artic bag, so you end up with the same weight as a tent.
i love hammocks, just another tool in the kit though.

I'm not saying they aren't capable, just bulky and heavy.
