    Hey guys, I am going to be selling my Hennessy Hammock, Expedition Asym, that I bought back in 2012 and only used twice. It is the one with velcro on the bottom, and not the newer zippered ones. I paid $125 back then.

    What do you think it is worth to try and sell today??

    $80-$100, they are still a good piece of kit.

    I did post my setup recently elsewhere but it does suit the 'small bike camping'.

    2 man tent (not in pic)
    -10 down sleeping bag
    Thermarest mattress
    insulating matt
    Self inflating pillow
    Helinox chair
    2 stoves
    2 adaptors to fit cheaper gas cartridges
    2 gas cartridges
    Frypan (handle cut off)
    paper plates
    cutlery
    bowl
    sink
    T towel
    clothes
    cleaning gear
    toilet bag
    windshield for stoves
    cup
    paper plates
    billy
    headlamp
    chopping board

    I wouldn't normally take two stoves but my brother was meeting me at our destination without a stove. As it turned out we only used the one.

    The luggage gear comprises of the Kriega Overlander 30 panniers and the US10 bag on the rear fender. My Thermarest mattress lays across the panniers in front of the US10 bag using the bags straps. I carried some food and my water bladder in a backpack.

    exactly where I choose
    Multi-day and multi-week camping/travel set up on my 400 EXC.

    GCAG Hardcore softrack, two 20 liter drybags, GCAG Snake kits, 8 liter drybag up top with tools/tire/repair kits.

    Shelter
    - sil-nylon rectangular tarp, with ultralight ridgeline like the 1.9 mm Tech Line here http://diygearsupply.com/product/tech-line/, with Dutchware hardware and six stakes.
    - hammock, home sewn with spliced Amsteel whoopie slings
    - two tree straps, webbing with toggles for hammock suspension
    - two ultralight, multi section poles, (pieces found here http://www.makeyourgear.com/hardware/poles/ ), that I can use with tarp when hammocking for 'porch mode', or for when there are no trees and i am going to the ground.
    -tyvek sheet, for ground cloth. Used for when i go to ground, or a dry place to put moto gear under the hammock, or to cover moto gear.

    Sleeping
    -10* F rated, Drytek down Revelation quilt from Enlightened Equipment. http://www.enlightenedequipment.com/revelation/
    - separate Climashield insulation hood (can be worn in camp and when sleeping). The Hoodlum hood here: http://www.enlightenedequipment.com/hoodlum/
    - a faux-silk sleeping bag liner, I use this to not only extend the temp rating of the quilt and keep the interior of it cleaner, but it can be used separately when i am staying at the generous people's homes of the Tent Space thread, or in motels, or just when i only need a light cover.
    All three of the above sleeping pieces pack super small in a stuff sack.
    - Thermarest Neoair Xtherm sleeping pad. I choose a sleeping pad over a hammock underquilt due to the versatility of being able to go the ground.

    Cooking
    - Imusa 10cm Aluminum Mug for cook pot, with Batchstoves lid.
    - silicone collapsible cup.
    - homemade alcohol stove.
    - 8 ounce Nalgene container to carry alcohol fuel.
    I can easily substitute my Pocket Rocket canister stove, or a liquid white gas/unleaded fuel stove without taking up much more space.
    - long lexan spoon.
    - various food.

    Clothing
    - waterproof/breathable rain jacket (this is also often my wet weather layer when riding with just my Dakar Pro Jersey).
    - waterproof/breathable rain pants (for short trips with a clear forecast I sometimes leave these, but most of the time they are with me)
    - puffy jacket. i happen to use synthetic insulation for this piece.
    - 1 pair of lightweight gloves.
    - 1 pair of pants, quick drying. I use Prana Zion Stretch.
    - 1 pair of shorts. (in warm weather, these are usually all I have on under the Dakar pants I wear on the bike, so either the Prana pants or the shorts are on me, the other is stowed at any one time)
    - 1 pair of merino wool long bottoms
    - 1 merino wool long sleeve base layer
    - merino wool underwear
    - at least 1 spare pair of merino wool socks
    - 1 spare shirt, lightweight, quick drying.
    - lightweight, compact shoes, like the Xeroshoes Z-Trail sandals http://xeroshoes.com/shop/ready-to-wear-barefoot-sandals/ztrail-men/ or other.
    - small bag for toiletries
    - Warm N Safe full heated liner, with First Gear heated glove liners. This doesnt come with me for short summer trips, but is with me the rest of the time. I have the Trail Tech 100 watt stator kit I installed in the KTM EXC and have run these heated layers without issue.

    Tool Kit
    -this is compact, lightweight, and I got great ideas from The Toolkit Thread here in advrider. I keep it in a Nintendo game case like this : https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0196DONNQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Repair Kit
    duct tape, wire, zipties, quicksteel, superglue, etc.

    Tire Kit
    The tire irons are part of the Green Chile Adventure Gear Hardcore softrack, I also carry a spare tube, manual pump, patch kit, etc.

    My trail jack attaches to one of the Snake Kits and permanently resides there.

    My kit for a six month trip from the UK to Mongolia on a Honda XR125 which is also posted elsewhere on this forum, I found there was everything needed and nothing missing from this set up.


    It all fitted on the bike like this.

    Yellow Zebra I love that style tent. They seem real minimal.........until you see the packed dimensions. Wished it packed smaller though. Still very cool.
