    Superior Gear Hammock finally arrived!

    I could not be happier with my 11-foot 30-degree Superior Hammock! I did a lot of research. I watched countless videos from any source I could find. Thank you Shug, BuckIey, Marine and all others that have reviewed this hammock. Let me add my 1/2 cent.

    I did the math and found the ultimate bundle came out to be a bit less than buying from other vendors for what I needed for tarp, quilts, and hammock at the temperature rating I wanted. Iíve now spent a few nights in various conditions and have been warm, dry, and oh-so-comfortable! I can sleep on my side as I like. When I get it dialed in I have no calf-ridge. As a 64-year-old arthritic with back issues, I am at times more comfortable in a hammock than in my bed at home.

    The general construction of this hammock in my case is great. I found nothing to cause me concearn.

    The only downside to this was the 11-week wait for the hammock to arrive and the lack of status updates; A first-world problem for sure. (Thank you for your kind patience, Kyle, with my multiple emails of Ďare we there yet?í)

    If you are thinking of purchasing a hammock, I highly recommend this hammock. Just be patient. It is worth the wait.

    It's such a good piece of gear. Did you get the elite upgrade?

    Thanks for the review! had I known all of this before beginning my journey, I'd have looked seriously at the superior as my first hammock. Our lows only reach the low 30s around here, but I dream of hammocking in the snow.

    It's still on my list if I can ever get some serious winter trips booked.

    I endured a similar wait time of 12-13 weeks after ordering to take advantage of the Memorial Day sale price. Summer was waning before it got here. Nonetheless, I think it is a very fine camping GE hammock and I'm pleased. However, it won't take the place of my DH Sparrow as my everyday "couch" and nighttime bed because the fabric is substantially less robust than the Hexon70 2.2.

    Hopefully we both can report something positive on acquiring the Hammocks.I'm getting tempted to sew my Mt Washington Under Quilt to the bottom of my Dream Hammock Sparrow.I will retain that as a option,if needed.Good Luck!

    Just out of curiosity, what was your order date?
