Pros

  • Full setup with rainfly and no-see-um bug mesh included
  • Bottom and side entry

Cons

  • If not setup properly rain fly can be ineffective

Our Take:

Hennessy Hammock Expedition Series offers a nice dependable hammock for the solo sleeper up to 250 pounds.

The hammock itself is 10′ long and is made with 210D Oxford durable nylon to help prevent any tearing and stands up to the elements and give you a nice comfy lounge. Hennessey’s reliable craftsmanship really shines throughout the whole set which also includes 1600 lb. tested polyester rope, webbing straps, built in mosquito net and a rainfly.

The rainfly is made with 70D Polyurethane Coated Polyester Ripstop so it will keep you dry as you swing to the rhythm of the outdoors.

There’s even a small pouch on the inside to keep your smaller important belongings.

The sensation of slowly rocking is second to none when camping out in nature and this hammock delivers.

The hammock also offers both a side zipper entry or bottom velcro entry.

You can decide which works best for your needs. T

he only downside is the setup is a little more complicated than other hammocks, but all in all a very dependable shelter.

    Pros Durable, comfortable hammock with very strong straps included., Rainfly and mesh netting also included in the set, , ,
    Cons Mesh netting can be easily torn The straps are a bit short, , , ,
    Our Take:

    The GoRoam Outdoors Camping Hammock is a great all-in-one hammock set that is super strong and includes a lot of things that other hammocks require you buy as add-ons.

    The hammock itself is made from breathable Micro Hex RipStop Nylon so perfect for the summer.

    If used in winter just get a cool temperature rated underquilt and you’ll be set. The attached mosquito net is clutch, although if you don’t want the net on it is permanently stitched in.

    All you have to do is unzip and it’s that easy.

    The material is very lightweight, a little on the cheap side, but works so long as it’s not abused.

    This is a great 1st-time hammock camper hammock, weighs a little extra because of all the add-ons including the straps.

    The straps themselves are heavy built to handle 400 lbs per strap with 12 different attachment points to give you plenty of adjustment capability when the hammock is fully hung from the aluminum carabineers.

    While you can find better quality and lighter weight this is a great hammock set for its price.

    Best Overall Option

    Weight 57 oz
    Packed Dimensions 5" x 8" x 12"
    Assembled Dimensions 130" x 59"
    Rainfly Yes
    Sack Included Yes
    Weight Capacity 300 lbs
    Straps Included Yes
    Mesh Netting Yes
    Current Price from $189.95
    Pros Strong, comfortable hammock, Lots of features including rain fly and mesh netting, , ,
    Cons At close to 4 pounds this isn't ideal for ultralight backpacking or anyone who wants as light a shelter as possible but Still a great hammock,, Although it can hold 300 lbs the layout can be a bit tight for bigger campers, , ,
    Our Take:

    The Hennessy Hammock Explorer Deluxe Series gives you all the quality that you expect out of a Hennessy Hammock and then some.

    The 210D Oxford nylon fabric holds up quite nicely to even a 300-pound camper and comes with a rain fly, mosquito net, and quality straps.

    The rain fly is made with 70D Polyurethane Coated Ripstop polyester to keep you, your hammock, and all your gear dry underneath.

    All in all, you’ll lug around just under 4 pounds in total weight, but if you’re using this in place of a tent you’re not giving up any extra weight in your pack and may end up being even more comfortable.

    The options of side and bottom entry are also very nice for more setup options.

    The bug netting is a double edge sword as it is permanently stitched in, so no option to lay in the open air on a nice bugless day unless you lie the netting flat over the hammock and sit on top of it.

    Not a deal killer by far, just something to be aware of.

    Assembled Dimensions 90" x 42"
    Rainfly Yes
    Sack Included Yes
    Weight Capacity 275 lbs
    Straps Included No
    Mesh Netting Yes
    Current Price from $229.95
    Pros Lots of features including reliable rain fly and bug netter, The Spread bar creates a nice flat surface to lie on, , ,
    Cons The spreader bar makes it hard to backpack with, No straps included, , ,
    Our Take:

    The Lawson Hammock Blue Ridge Camping Hammock is so fully loaded with cool features that its no wonder it was rated #1 By Backpacker and Outside and American Survival Guide and was the Winner of the prestigious Gear Of The Year Award.

    The Lawson includes a unique arch pole/spreader bar system allows for use suspended as a hammock or on the ground as a tent to give you more versatility on the trail.

    The spreader bar also eliminates the number one complaint most campers have with backpacks which is the cocooned/folded up effect by forcing the hammock material to lie flat. It also comes with both a rain fly and bug netting and a waterproof nylon border which prevents water from coming up and under the rain fly.

    With dimensions of 90″x 42″, there’s plenty of room inside for 1 person plus some gear with a weight capacity of 275 pounds.

    Keep in mind the hammock can require a bit of balance and isn’t the easiest to pack down. However, for the experienced camper, you will find a lot of good value here.
