    My severance package

    DSCF7039.jpg

    As a long time supporter of Hammeck and their unpaid volunteer sales rep I was told I would get a severance package




    Had talked to MomMeck a while back ( can't remember if it was before or after they announced they were suspending their sales ) about ordering a wide Netty and she let me know that she had some Dutch Gear Hexon XL set aside for me. Told her I did not care what the color was but I did want it at least 64" wide, 11 Ft and a zipper that I could open on both sides of the hammock.

    As the Hexon 1.6 is rated for 350 pounds I decided to go with a single layer hammock.

    I got the hammock several weeks ago but due to work, grandkids visiting and the weather I have been trying to find time to set up the hammock and take pictures. The last time I set it up after receiving it, a major rain storm hit about the same time I finished setting up the hammock so it came down faster than it went up.

    From the pictures you can see it is a light gray with blue stitching which looks great against the gray fabric.

    Plenty of room inside and very little if any stretch.

    My problem now is waiting for the weather to cool enough to go outside and spend the night in it.

    Gunner, you and I had very very similar ideas. I'll have to take a picture but after they announced, I also worked out an order for a Netty, zippers on both sides, charcoal gray w/ blue triangles and stitching, mine is 62 inch finished width. Twins!

    Great looking hammock. I look forward to seeing it and you in the woods.
    If you prepare for failure you will probably succeed.
