    Exclamation CLOSED: You know you want some!

    Ahhh, fall is here at last and winter is on its six. The air has turned crisp and our discussions have revolved around staying warm in our beloved hammocks.

    This can, of course, mean only one thing. Itís time for our annual Down Group Buy!

    The Details:
    This is the good stuff; 900fp down from Speer Hammocks! Ed has graciously extended a 15% discount to Hammock Forum members only. His 3.1oz bags of 900fp down are normally $30 each, but he is offering them to us for $25.50 each cause weíre 'special'. This is only $1.50 more per bag than we paid last year, which in the current economic conditions is fairly amazing to me.

    $25.50 per bag

    Shipping:
    1-10 bags: $9.50
    11-15 bags: $12.50
    16-20 bags: $15
    International shipping will require that you contact Ed for the rate, but he WILL ship to you.
    If you need more than 20 bags, well, you've got bigger issues than me which is saying a lot!

    This offer ends November 30, 2009!

    Luxury spending (like hammocks and hammock accessories) is generally one of the first sectors to drop off and Iím certain that Edís costs havenít gotten any lower. Also, consider that this is the highest quality stuff out there at 900 fp and still 45 cents cheaper than Thru Hikerís 800fp down bags. Not to mention that with Ed you get bags of 3.1oz instead of 3oz. Now 0.1 may not seem like much if youíve never worked with down before, but itís added to the bag to account for any spillage during the transfer. Yes, it happens!

    Deal is pretty much the same as last yearís concerning the ordering process. This deal is nowhere to be found on the Speer site as it is only for us. To order, you will need to email Ed at info(at)SpeerHammock(dot)com. When ordering, specify how many bags and provide your shipping address. He will then send you a PayPal email invoice so that you may pay with a credit card. If youíre a cash only kind of person, Ed will still hook you up. He was very accommodating to us last year I and doubt this year will be any different. If you prefer to speak with Ed directly, you can order over the phone by calling him at 828-724-4444.

    Now then, the challenge: Last yearís down group buy is going to be tough to beat. Iím not sure you new kids have what it takes. Just kidding! Iím a proud man to be sure, but would be very happy to see the previous record beat. It stands at 100 bags. King of the Group Buy! If you watch the TV show ďBonesĒ youíll get that reference.

    Weíve got more people on the forum this year than we did last year, so I have high hopes of beating last yearís record. While not required, it is fun to post what you are ordering instead of doing it quietly behind the scenes. Dutch got me in all kinds of trouble last year with his ĎIíll order two more if you order two moreí stuff. However, Iíve grown and matured in the last year , so Iím invincible to those type of attacks now.

    Iíll start it off with a commitment to 5 bags of glorious 900 fp downy goodness.
    Next...?

    Bags!!

    Would this be a great buy for DIY folks? If not a DIY person can it be called an investment for having some else make a UQ, or something?

    I have not read "yet" that there are folks willing to make quilts....if someone supplied the filling.

    School me if you like, but I could use a nice cover quilt.

    New to Hammock Forums, and excited for DIY projects!

    Hello to all, I'm new to the forum. Thanks to my foot surgery and my fiancee, I am now in full sewing-project mode for our DIY hammock gears!

    I'm about to attempt my first UQ project, and very glad that this group buy comes up just in time. I can't wait to get started!

    Thank you for putting the group buy together!

    900 cubic inches? 9"x10"x10" according to specifications.
    or 40" x 11"x 2" approx...
    so 3 oz might do for a torso underquilt- 33x 40 x2"
    (Just bought 8 oz off stormcrow- stll got some left- call me in the spring, eh?)
    you guys have fun without me! KM
