    The all Inclusive HammEck

    I wanted to make a post about my wonderful experience with the Mecks. First I want to thank the community for the abundance of information found on this forum, which ultimately lead to my decision on the Hammeck.

    When I had first heard about hammock camping I was very excited about the idea but when searching I found out they came in all different types, and all different prices. First think I needed to figure out was what Iwanted. I knew I was very interested in a bugnet, but I wanted it integrated with the hammock itself. Given I have no experience still with a separated bug net, it just seemed like a pain to me. After looking through quite a few different manufacturers such as Hennesy, Warbonnet, Dream, Hammock Bliss and pretty much anything I could find on the internet I narrowed it down to a few. I purchased The Ultimate Hang to learn a bit more about the experience as a whole and then I asked the community what they thought and that's when the Mecks contacted me. David answered over 15 emails stock full of questions. I cant thank him enough for his patience and knowledge. I also think it is the best bang for your buck. A custom built hammock that start at $50 and can found for less occasionally in the clearance section.

    All in all I could not be happier with my HammEck. In fact I should of posted this months ago, but I recently moved from NY to VT and when while the weather was good all I did was lay out in my hammeck everyday. I seriously did not even connect my computer to the internet, and that is a big deal for someone who went to school for computer animation and game design.

    Anyway for those of you who are new to hammock camping or anyone interesting in a new hammock, I seriously suggest at least contacting the Mecks. The whole family is amazing. I believe the product sells itself so please take a look at my Dual Layer, Two tone, Netty with Ridge line Organizer.

    If you choose to go two tone, they ask what color you would like to have for these triangles

    Ridgeline organizer is the way to go if you ask me. The Netty comes with a pouch for the net, I usually throw my water bottle in there, and my phone and other stuff in the organizer.

    I decided months ago that I wanted to purchase my next hammock from the Mechs. I have never seen a bad review on the Hammecks or their products. Please keep posting reviews for the small cottage vendors.
