This is the 2008 size.
It was the DD Hammock that got me to this site as well. I am a reformed ground dweller as well. I started camping with a bivy shelter, went to a 4-season 2 man, then to a 4-season 4 man tent for group trips. I hated sleeping on the ground and would sometimes sleep in my packable parachute hammock, but the bugs would drive me crazy. I heard about Hennessy hammocks, and bought one. I hated the darn thing. I then looked at the Claytor and the DD, and then did a web search for hammock camping to see what else there was, and found this site. I lurked for a little less than a year, and joined after I bought my Clark. It was all over for me then - now I have 5 hammocks, 4 tarps, 2 UQ's, 2 top quilts, and a lot of DIY fabric yet to use. Most of the DIY people here have a lot more than that!
Anyway, I really like the DD and am glad I bought it. It's not a totally flat sleep, but flatter than my Clark. But I don't think there is any such thing as a bad hammock, just one that doesn't fit you personally. And if you don't like your DD, I'll buy it from you. Post pics when you get it. If we do end up doing a group buy, I'll probably get another one.
, and address it to Penny. She's great, even though I never bought from her, she was very helpful and answered all my many questions.
