    Hammock Equipment Comparison Chart (Hammocks, Tarps, Insulation, Netting, Suspension)

    Hello!

    I got a little frustrated that the hammock comparison chart in the sticky was broken and out of date... so I've gone through to all of the manufacturers listed on the forums and some of the others I could find to make an updated one.

    It's located here: http://goo.gl/ofbMko

    Please leave comments if you see a mistake or some information I missed, or if I missed an entire manufacturer or something let me know here. I haven't done suspensions yet as there're so many options for that!

    Changelog:
    15Mar2015: Initial Release
    16Mar2015: Added DD Bugnets, UK Hammocks, Mid-Atlantic Mountain Works. Marked Underquilts.com as not available. Started work on suspensions.

    Wow is right! This is fantastic.. deserves a sticky to replace the old one.

    Awesome stuff, thanks so much!
    FYI - the Dutch PolyD hammock is available in two fabric thicknesses: 1.4oz and 1.2oz. The brick red option is the 1.2 oz fabric, and an 11' one of those weighs about 7oz. I can weight it again just to check. I'm suspicious of those numbers for 10' and 11' PolyD hammocks; half oz of weight difference between them?

    Thanks for pointing out there's another color. I only see the Navy Blue and Grey available on the site right now, and I went with the gram weight listed there. If you can weigh yours I'll drop it in!

    Does anyone have any suggestions for the columns for the Suspension category?

    I've added every cottage vendor I could find and most of the big commercial ones. If someone's missing PLEASE let me know.

    Suspension still needs to be added and I swear there's more hammock socks than I have in here.

    Also, some vendors have so many options I had to trim them down just so I didn't get carpal tunnel. (Looking at you, Enlightened!)
