Thanks...it's been a fantastic purchase. I don't mind paying top dollar for high quality equipment but I refuse to pay just for a name/brand. It must be quality. My sleeping bag is a Mountain Hardware Phantom 15, my pad is a Exped SynMat 9 but my down puffy jacket is from Costco. I was going to get a Patagonia down jacket but the Costco Kirkland one had the exact same specs/type of down for the fraction of the cost. So that's the process I'm in now...trying to find a hammock that is high quality and comfortable.
