Picked up a Texsport Hobo Hammock II today.
First hang was at a little county park, just to try it out... knot let loose or sumptin' I had it strung between two columns in a shelter... good thing I still had my ridin' pants on, or that concrete mighta' hurt.
Second try I made a continuous loop and hung from that - just about got the angle right, and was able to lie diagonally across the hammock. I can see where an underquilt would be necessary for a good rest, just a half-hour lazing about and I could feel the breeze on my back. Maybe jerry-rig a poncho liner for the job.

It's not bad for a $15 hammock - I'll bring a tent along "just in case" if I take it camping without trying it out in the backyard first.

I heard HF's got a couple hangs in Oregon coming up - maybe I can crash the raffle for one o'them high dollah hammocks.

Help!
At some point back a bunch of pages, someone wrote about someone else who will modify Hennessey hammocks with the butt crack and put zippers in the side(s).

Who does it, and is it strong (I'm 220). After 50 couple years hanging in a topless or side opening hammock, I can't deal with the bottom opening.

I think this is who you are looking for. They do great work and have a great rep. I just had zippers put on my Hennessey over the winter and work is beautiful.http://www.2qzqhammockhanger.com/index.html

I got mine back a week or so ago. It takes two-three weeks. I haven't had a chance to rehang mine and test it yet.

This sounds like a glass half full response.


Glass half empty would be the butt crack.

Python Straps

Yes, they are worth the money.

(In my case, since I caught a deal and got the Kammok and Python Straps for $69, they were REALLY worth the money.

Made some straps from old tie-downs - hung out in the front yard for an hour or so yesterday - didn't mean to take a nap but...
Straps = good, and easy to set-up/tear down with a marlin spike hitch thank doG for the innerwebz!

Ok, so I am digging the Kammok. The thing is friggin HUGE! And the material is very soft and feels very pleasing against my skin...

And the Python Straps make setting it up a snap! (and no, they don't stretch).

First hang of the year. Forgot the pegs and improvised with trees and a found arrow.

Got a little cool overnight, water froze in my pot. Glad I brought my underquilt and a pad. Only my feet got cold.

Rode through slush and snow to get there

and blowing snow on the way home

Yesterday June 9, a real adventure ride

Ride safe

Phil

Looking forward to RTTH where we can 'hang' out.
