and a Clark hammock. I bought the Hennessy first, then bought the
Clark. Both are very good hammocks in my opinion, but I am more of
a camper than a hiker and the Clark suits me better. My 4 and 6
year old kids love the Hennessy hammock. I am 43 and the Clark
suits me for overnight trips. It is more bulkier and weighs more
than the Hennessy hammock but I prefer it. I have only read about
the Speer and Crazy Creek hammocks, but they sound well made also.
I really like my Clark hammock, out camping or just in the yard, I
really enjoy it. Being in your 50's and aching joints, I think you
would appreciate and enjoy a Clark hammock over a Hennessy hammock
with bottom entry. Just my opinion. And rope hammocks do not
compare with camping hammocks, least not in my mind.
