I am quite fond of the Speer. I must admit, though, that I have not
used the Hennessey, but I did spend time sweating over this same
issue before buying. With the Speer I like top entry, the removable
bug net, the bigger tarp, the tarp being separate from the hammock
(it doesn't sag when you get into the hammock), no need to peg the
sides to the ground, very easy to set up, very comfortable, and if
you aren't afraid to try sewing, very cheap. It was my very first
sewing project, and I breezed right through it. If you buy it pre-
sewn, it is still fairly priced. And Ed will give you a signed copy
of his book with the purchase. I can hang my LED light and medical
needs form the bug net line, within easy-to-find-in-the-darkness-
reach. I must say that I also like the elegant simplicity of the
Hope this helps.
