These Top 5 Best Camping Hammocks Tents are great for setting up camp on uneven ground, or away from the forest floor where there could be roaming animals, snakes, insects and what have you. We’re big fans of hammock tents anyway, and recommend them to anyone in search of a different experience — just be sure to take care of the trees you choose.
Hennessy Hammock Ultralite Backpacker Asym Classic
‘Ultra-lightweight, one of the most durable hammock tents in the world.’
We really have saved the best until last. The Hennessy Hammock Ultralite Backpacker Asym is one of the world’s best hanging hammock tents. It’s super light, durable, waterproof, windproof, mosquito proof, you name it. One backpacker from Israel even went 17,000 miles with just a Hennessy Backpacker for shelter. It doesn’t support as much weight as the other hammock tents featured here, but if you’re under 90kg, you’re guaranteed one of the safest, most comfortable hammock-based night’s sleep of your life. We love the Hennessy, and we really recommend it for anyone serious about their travelling and camping.
Size and weight
The packed weight of the Hennessy Hammock Ultralite Backpacker Asym Classic is 860g, so not too bad for carrying around. The height limit is 6ft, so you’ll need to be on the average to shorter side to fully enjoy it, and there’s a weight limit of 90kg.
As well as a mosquito net cover, the Hennessy Hammock Ultralite Backpacker Asym Classic also features a separate rain cover, which extends away from the hammock, to help keep rain away from you and your belongings. With an eight-point attachment system, pulling the Hennessy taut from each corner, the hammock is sturdy and windproof, more so than any of the other hammocks we’ve featured.
It comes with its own carry case, and some special ‘tree hugger’ straps, so that you can protect the bark of the trees you’re pitching the hammock to.
Spectra ropes and polyester Rainfly materials make the Hennessy both light and resistant to the elements. A winning combination in our book.
Adding to your expedition kit. Good for longer camping trips and moderate to severe weather conditions. A close contender in our top 5 best camping hammocks review.
