One more reason I'm glad I've put my Hennessy in the closet. Still a comfortable hammock, even if it's manufactured by a disreputable person.
I never understood how anyone could patent a rectangular piece of fabric with hemmed edges and bug netting sewed on or a ridgeline (a piece of rope).
I maybe can understand the bottom entry being under a patent but that's stretching it in my opinion.
The made in the USA issue is just wrong. Funy how it dissapeared overnight. I wonder if it will effect the gov't contracts in anyway. Probably not.
Don't get me wrong, I'm completely for an open global market and if you can get it done cheaply in China, great. Don't be desceptive about it though..
