RE: [BackpackGearTest] Hennessy Test
- Hi, Jerry:
I wasn't going to do this, as I already am a Hennessy owner and fan, but
I've been working on solutions to the few shortcomings of the hammock and
want to try them out on a new Ultralight.
I am a 53 year old male with over 40 years backpacking experience. The bulk
of that experience in is the mountains of the Southeastern US, where I
usually do three day to one week solo trips in any weather at any time of
year. Recently I started leading groups and preaching the gospel of
lightening up, and the Hennessy is a big hit with beginners. Two thirds of
the people who have tried it have liked it so much they've bought one.
I will comply with all the reporting requirements, and will illustrate my
aforementioned "solutions" (if they work), with drawings and/or photographs.
My short-term "winter" test will more likely be a "chilly weather" test, as
winter hasn't come to North Carolina yet, but I have a trip scheduled to
Mount Rogers on the 11th and 12th of November and will take the Ultralight
if it arrives before then. I do plan to test the hammock thoroughly when
winter comes to the NC and Virginia mountains and I will post follow up
reports as I do so.
