SnakeSkins are an instant stuff sack system that collapses your Hennessy Hammock in about 30 seconds. Your shelter never touches the ground, never gets dirty or muddy. It just disappears into two tapering tubes of silnylon which sit gathered on the ropes at each end of the hammock for amazingly quick set up and take down. For use with all Hennessy Hammock models. SnakeSkins XXL work great even with the largest models, like the Explorer Deluxe and Safari Deluxe. It can even accommodate a Hex Fly with the hammock.
Works with Explorer and Expedition models (standard and zip)

Installing your 'Snakeskins' Thread each rope into the wide end of the 'snakeskin' and out the small end. The 'skins' stay gathered on the ropes. Depending on how they are set up on the hammock, 'snakeskins' can be used to collapse the hammock only, the fly only, or both the fly and the hammock together.
How to use 'Snakeskins'? To collapse the hammock in the 'snakeskins', release the side adjustment cords for the rainfly and the hammock. Reach under the hammock, grab all four cords and fold them into the rainfly as you roll up the hammock inside the fly. Holding the rolled hammock in one hand, simply wrap your hand behind the reinforced ring at the larger end of the gathered 'snakeskin' and slide it over the rainfly and hammock to the mid point. Do the same from the other end and the whole hammock disappears into the SnakeSkin. Then just untie it from from one tree, coil it up, untie it from the other tree and throw it into your pack or tie the waterproof coil to the outside of your pack. With a little practice, you will do this in less than a minute.
