    Thumbs down What's up with the price increase?

    Clearly I was wrong in posting this... so let me just throw this out there..

    "it *looks* like HammockGear increased their prices"... i could be wrong.

    Moderator's edit: The information that the OP started this thread with is factually inaccurate. The vendor responds (with much more detail than quoted here):

    I really think these kinds of concerns should be shared through a PM. You don't bring up issues you have with someone in front of thousands of people. I am not negating your concern, I just think a PM would be more appropriate. My humble opinion.

    My guess would be a little something to do with things like this.
    Seems like they were not given much choice.

    To the OP. PM your concerns and request the thread be shut down. Hopefully your concerns will be addressed in an appropriate and timely manner. I think you could make this a win-win situation. Thanks in advance for your consideration.
