Apocalypse Survival School Hammock of Choice – Hennessy Ultralite Backpacker A-sym
In the advent of a survival situation when you need to grab your bug out bag and leave in a hurry, the last thing you need to struggle with is carrying extra weight. To decrease the weight and simplify storage in your Bug out Bag or Survival Pack, we recommend the Hennessy Ultralite Backpacker A-sym due to the following reasons:
The Hennessy Backpacker A-Sym Ultralite actually does just what it’s name suggests: presents camping fans a featherweight suspended bed, the weight of which will not impede them while you’re on the trail.
Hennessy describes this particular hammock as offering the best balance between it’s durable and comfy Backpacker family as well as its super-light Extreme Light Racer, given that the Hyperlite weighs just 1lb 15oz/860g.
A-sym means that the survival hammock uses a unique a-symmetrical design or shape. This allows the hammock to hang more diagonal, like a parallelogram. This shape creates a much more comfortable position which is flatter than other designs of hammocks.
In short, for ‘normal’ hardcore survivalist who aren’t racing inclined, the ‘coyote brown’ Ultralite Backpacker is the lightweight, usable Hennessy of choice.
Like all Hennessy’s models it is provided with bug netting (this is sewn-in and will not need attaching separately), a detachable rain fly, ropes, tree hugger straps and a hammock stuff sack with the Hyperlite’s installation instructions printed on the back. Additionally you now receive the company’s ultra-useful Snake skins free of charge too; utilize these to roll up the whole hammock for quick day storage and quick take-down.
