Huaulta Cave Diving Expedition 2018 uses Hennessy Hammock Leaf at Cueva de la Puena Colorada

"Our team has finally reached sump 7 and camp 2 where we are using our Hennessy Hammocks. Before any exploration dives can take place the team need to bolt and rig the 70m pitch down to the water and install a portaledge at the bottom of the shaft. Using the portaledge our divers will be able to assemble their kit before heading off on deep dives. The portaledge will also play an important role after each dive. Our divers will need to wait here for several hours whilst off gassing before exerting themselves with the long prussik up the shaft back to camp."

‘You can talk,’ he retorted. ‘Look at your shoulder straps, they’re torn already.’ It was true: the first day of a two-year expedition and I’d ripped the top shoulder adjuster clean off the harness.

We had more than 45 kilograms in each of our packs: a sign of our lack of any notion of what lay ahead and what we would need to tackle it...

A Test of the Hennessy Hammock in an Extreme Cold Weather Environment

PROBABLY THE ONLY HAMMOCK NORTH OF THE ARCTIC CIRCLE :

a Review by Ben Reynolds of the Royal Marines Commandos

It’s indisputable. Hennessy Hammocks could well be the best in the world. Light, durable, comfortable and excellently engineered… perfect for warmer areas of the world, right? Well, you will have seen from the website that ever evolving design solutions are attempting to expand the boundaries of the hammock inhabitable world, from calm low lying areas and comfortable lower latitudes, to where the silent killer reigns supreme…. cold. So, it was with Hennessy Hammock’s Explorer Ultralite Asym, along with elements of the insulated Superstructure that I found myself in Northern Norway in order to test whether the cold can be defeated by this intruder from the tropics.
