OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION :

The Hennessy Hammock Scout Classic has a diamond shape and a large, protective rainfly, just like the original Hennessey Hammock. The Scout is a simply a bit shorter in length than the original.

  • This general-purpose model is an excellent and economical choice for young adventurers, Scouts and short individuals.
  • Hennessey Hammock Scout provides comfort for those up to 5 ft. 10 in. and 200 lbs., with more room for shoulders at one end.
  • Patented, easy entry through the bottom; automatically snaps shut behind you as weight tensions the entrance and seals with VELCRO® brand closure.
  • Patented integral ridgeline maintains the same comfortable shape to keep your back straight and level when resting on the diagonal.
  • Patented “never-tip” center balance design eliminates instability by entering from the center instead of flipping over the side.
  • No-see-um mesh provides excellent insect protection and ventilation and will deflect wind, providing a calm space inside.
  • Coated ripstop polyester rainfly protects the Scout from the elements; slightly asymmetric in shape, it may be tilted to any angle, rolled up above, removed or used separately.
  • Nifty gear pocket slides on the ridgeline and stores out of sight behind your head.
  • Complementary polyester webbing straps protect the tender bark of trees and provide greater span for the ropes.
  • Hammock folds into an open air lounger/chair or can be used on the ground as a tent when paired with your hiking poles, sold separately.
  • Includes detachable rainfly, support ropes and stuff sack with printed setup instructions.

REAL REVIEWS BY OUTDOORS ENTHUSIASTS LIKE YOU :

“I used this for a weekend hike in Florida. It actually belongs to my friend, who has the Expedition Asym model for himself. He bought the Scout for his wife who is much smaller. I’m a pretty short guy, so I didn’t have much of a problem fitting in a getting comfortable. Since I hadn’t really played with this at all, I needed a little help setting up. Since then, we’ve utilized a different method of setting up that takes even less time and is even easier.
As far as comfort goes, it got down in the 40s during the nights we were out there, and so the draft under the hammock was a little chilly, even in a 20* sleeping bag. I’ve just stepped up my sleeping pad, though, so hopefully that will no longer be an issue. I still slept comfortably.
With the snake-skins, tear-down was even easier than setting up.
For the sake of being able to get my pack under the hammock, I think I’ll upgrade to a bigger fly when I buy mine, as well as perhaps a bigger, more highly-rated hammock. But I have no intention to return to a tent any time soon.”

“Never has camping been so comfortable. On a flat bed or in a tent, I wake up with a tight neck and shoulders, but sleeping in a hammock gives my body a gentle curve. I usually don’t need a pillow. I try to find excuses to sleep outside, even when not camping.
Setup took a long time when I first used the hammock, but after that it was quick and smooth. The videos on Hennessy’s website are very helpful.
The straps included are small for the trees in my area, but they still work–it just means the ropes touch the trunk more. It’s important to note that no stakes are included! I usually find small sticks and use those to secure the two support ropes and rainfly.
Getting situated inside is tricky at first, especially with a sleeping bag and gear. The first few times I used my hammock I woke up frequently, trying to get in the right position. Now I sleep through the night.
This is my first hammock and definitely a favorite piece of gear.”
