Hello Hangers I've got a Hennessey Hammock, and I've watched all of their videos on set-up...I've tried different techniques, but it seams that every time I set up my hammock, it looks just fine from the outside. But then, when I get inside of it, the walls seem to sit on me..it's rather claustrophobic. I mean, I can deal with it, but I suppose that I imagined that hammocks would be a little less enclosed, so I must be doing something wrong with setup. If any of you guys have a hennessey, you know that there are the two strings to tie down for the fly, and then two for the actual sides of the hammock. Tom Hennessey, who I bought the thing from at trail days, recommended clipping the strings for the sides of the hammock (there's a small clip at the end of each one) to the strings for the fly...I do this, and still, there's sag in them and the walls of the hammock just eat me.
I feel like a caterpillar in a cacoon when I'm in it sometimes. I've tried different angles for tying the fly out, tried tying all the strings separately instead of clipping them together, I've basically just fooled around with it. But..considering a tent due to this. Any suggestions?
