How to Choose a Hammock
There are three main things to consider when choosing a camping hammock: the entry system you will use, how and where you will be using the hammock, and the weight range you need the hammock to support.
On our hammock collection page we have a filter that will help you narrow down your selection.
For entry system, you have the choice of our classic bottom entry or the side entry zippered models. The "collections" allow you to filter for the way you will be using your hammock: ultralight when every gram counts, two-layer bottom for extra insulation or bug protection, or our all-around great standard hammocks. The size filters can be used to show hammocks that are ideal for your weight range. You can also get a bigger hammock if you don’t mind a little extra weight.
You can get a better idea of your needs by reading about the design features of our hammocks, especially our unique entry system choices, or take a deep dive by going right to the hammock comparison chart. Our FAQ page will probably be helpful, and if you're curious you can read about how other people use their Hennessy Hammocks.

A Special Message to Our CustomersIt has been a strange summer but we’ve had so much positive feedback from customers about the wonderful times they have had out camping in their hammocks. There’s still time to get out there before the weather changes. We just want you to know that we are here if you have any questions.
Our shippers in the US, Canada, UK, and EU have done a wonderful job of shipping in a timely way; however, holiday shopping is starting to rev up already with more people shopping online. We encourage people to order early to be sure they get their gear on time.
Our shippers in the US, Canada, UK, and EU have been in touch and all have plans for making sure orders go out on time. That said, there may be a few disruptions because of local situations. We hope you'll contact us if you need any information about your shipment.
Let's hope that things get back to normal soon, and in the meantime, that there'll be some chances to get outside in our hammocks for some quiet time. -- The Hennessy Team
