I just received a Hennessy Expedition Asym Classic hammock today. The thing goes up in just a few minutes and weighs under 3 lbs with the rain fly. It has a velcro bottom that you can kick and exit quickly. The built-in mosquito net is a nice touch.
It got me thinking about using this as a hooch. That might not be proper field craft protocol but it could work if I could bring myself to camo painting it. Better yet, use a camo thermal shield for a rain fly…
What do you think? Of I show up to the CRCD/Patrol class with this, will Max run me off?
He’ll let you camp in it during CRTC but not as a hooch during Patrol Class…. I disagreed with him but after the Patrol class I’m in 100% agreement. The hammocks are great for what they’re designed for, I love mine. But they’re not sutible for the patrol scenario.
