I've been motorcycle camping for 20 years and never seem to get a good night sleep, despite having a really nice air mattress. So I decided to give hammock camping a shot. I bought a Hennessy Hammock Jungle Safari XXL Zip (I'm 6'3" 250lbs and a side sleeper). 47711550882_96244892d7_z.jpg
The hammock is great (so far) but I feel really exposed vs being inside a tent. I know this is a mental issue, that I might get over, but I'm looking for a tarp with doors to create a tent like shape and a bit of privacy around the hammock. I ordered an inexpensive version of this that will be here this weekend.

I'll report back after I try it, but wanted to see what works for others (and doesn't cost $$$). -Thanks

the only negative to the hennesey is where do you dress undress , easy in a tent ..... I have put off buying one because of that issue . I bought their regular lounging hammock for relaxing in and it is great . I have wanted to try one as it is hot in texas even at night and being off the hot ground with air circulating should make it more tolerable.

I bought an oversized tarp that forms a tent around the hammock so I have som privacy and a place to pull the bike in (as needed).

I’ll report back after I test it today
