    New to the hammock life. I have always used a tarp and bug bivy setup so I am use to the light weight and would want to match or come close to that weight in a hammock setup. I have been thinking a going with Hennessy’s Ultralite setup because of the all in one ease. But at 1lb 15oz I feel like I can go lighter for the price they are selling at. So I was looking at this hammock in combination with their buginator nest and possibly a cuben fiber tarp. My question, is there enough room for a person who is 5’10” to sleep on a diagonal without having my feet extend past the hammock? I do not really want my legs, pad, and quilt hanging off the hammock.

      You sound a lot like me :) I’m the same height and this hammock would fit you very well. In fact, you are the perfect height for most hammocks. The Hennessy Hyperlight (I’m laying in it as I type) is a great set up for all-in-one convenience, and it can go lighter by switching out the rope suspension and tarp, but if your goal is to be SUL, mixing and matching is the way to go. When I go SUL I use a simple hammock and use my HUG bug net. Cuben tarps can cut additional weight. Mountain Laurel Designs sells a great diamond Cuben fly. You might even ask Adam over at to make a custom asym Cuben fly for even more weight loss. Feel free to email me if you want more lightweight hammock ideas.

  2. Hi, Derek,
    What do manufacturers usually mean by width and length of a hammock? Are these the dimensions of the fabric they’d used or the actual dimensions? Speaking of length of a gathered end hammock, is it measured from where the channel is sewn of from the outer edge of the channel?

    • Derek says:

      It is usually the finished, flat dimension. The fabric may start off a little wider and longer before it is hemmed and gathered. I do my own measurements in my reviews and I usually take apart the hammock, if possible, and measure the flat dimensions of width and length from edge to edge.
