For generation after generation, hammocks have been a part of both South and Central America culture. These people know no other way of sleeping than under the stars, wrapped up in a hammock. They have mastered the art of making hammocks and have taught their children and their children's children the special ways of making incredible hammocks. Interestingly, when they tried Hennessy hammocks, they were astounded at the degree of protection and comfort provided.
These people immediately noticed that they were better protected from the harsh elements and annoying bugs such as mosquitoes, fire ants, scorpions, leaches, vampire bats, centipedes, and other insects. Not only did sleeping in Hennessy hammocks provide them with a more restful night, but it also provided them with a higher level of protection from such diseases as malaria and dengue fever.
For example, models such as the Backpacker Asym, Racer, and Explorer Ultra Light have special hammock bottoms that are constructed of densely woven fabrics that are high performance. They are made especially for durability, extraordinary comfort, properties to help with perspiration, and even a unique design that is mosquito resistant. With the West Nile virus being such a major problem over the past few years, and the mosquito population in this region of the world being so high, this type of protection is invaluable.
These hammocks are designed in greens that blend perfectly with the forest as well as other neutral tones. If you are in an area that is extra heavily populated with mosquitoes, the Ultra Light fabric is the tightest woven and therefore the one recommended hammock from Hennessy to use. Keep in mind that mosquitoes can penetrate any fabric but by using these hammocks, you greatly reduce your chances of being bitten. For added protection, you can spray Permethrin on the bottom portion of the hammock as well as clothing.
Whether living in South or Central America, planning a trip there, or living in any country or region with harsh insect populations, you do not have to stay cooped up in your home. If you love the outdoors and want to camp, you can by using a Hennessy hammock. If the locals who have lived with hammocks their entire lives can proclaim Hennessy hammocks as being a revolutionary hammock, then you too can be sure it is the answer to enjoying the outdoors in ultimate comfort.
