Hennessey Hammocks are innovative designs of hammocks created by Tom Hennessey. Tom Hennessey, an avid camper, designed the first hammock based on his memory of a World War II United States Army hammock that he utilized while hiking as a teenager
As the story goes, that particular hammock was lost, but served as his inspiration as he created a hammock based on his memory of that first camping hammock. His creation took less than a day to make as he personally stitched the material together. During this process, Hennessey realized that improvements could be incorporated.
