    Ultralite & Value Priced=dphammockgear.com

    Checkout this site. $89 UQ, $89 TQ. Both rated to 40-45 degrees. Each weigh 19 ounces or less with stuff sack. Dave(owner) is an awesome guy with very innovative ultralite ideas(met him at the Hoosier Hang and took a look at his stuff, it is very nice). Hopefully he will be on here to add a few words or corrections if I got anything wrong.




    Mods: I offered to post this for Dave. So if there are any issues please let me know. Thanks.

    I think his top quilt design is pretty sharp.

    I also met Dave at the Hoosier hang last year. He is a pretty sharp guy and has some great ideas. If I weren't limiting myself to DIY gear, I'd be trying some of his stuff for sure.

    dp special for Hammock Forums readers ...

    Hey hangers, especially ManCat for posting ... Thanks MC !

    I just found this thread. The Forum is so deep, sometimes it pays to dig deeper?

    A bit of "dp" background ...


    I've backpacked and bicycle camped for years. Got serious about going Ultra-Lite a LONG time ago. I've spent a LOT of $$$$$$ purchasing the next light piece of gear that happens on the scene.


    With the above in mind, I began crafting my own camping gear. People began asking where they could get something like I was using and thus www.dphammockgear.com happened.

    I've spent many a overnite testing gear designs. Some worked and some "didn't". What I'm offering on www.dphammockgear.com works.

    Bear in mind, dp's goal is to have "affordable" U-L, reliable gear that will ALWAYS be made in the USA.


    If you would like to help www.dphammockgear.com launch, for those of you who have found this thread, till August 18th, 2011, I'll offer FREE SHIPPING within the USA for any purchases you make.

    Just mention in your order note, that you are taking advantage of the Forum's FREE SHIPPING offer. I'll then send you a $7.95 "shipping refund" check along with your order. A refund check is the only way I know how to offer this special to a select few.

    FYI: I have been offering "free shipping" on each customer's second order. But this Forum offer stands till August 18th, 2011.

    While this looks like an awesome summer system, the lack of reviews/videos/etc. makes me too unsure to place the order. Someone order this and review it!

    EDIT: Left this page open too long before posting, and while it was open Navigator made his post! Great news.

    How do you think the vendors on this site got started.......someone gave them a chance.

    Just goes to show ya how ridiculously over-priced a lot of this stuff is...IMHO of course.

    IMO, in the end lets let the products speak for themselves when those that have taken the leap give their reviews and opinions. If the reviews are positive and the gear is well made and is as advertised, then that really is my main criteria.

    Well, I just finished my overnight test of the DP Underquilt and I have to say, it did quite well. Here are a couple of pics of the quilt on my Blackbird 1.0.








    I am using Triangle Thingies from Paul at Arrowhead and they really did the trick of keeping things in place. The temp dropped to a low of 48 degrees and I was wearing a thin polypro top, thin polypro pants and smartwool socks. I woke up at 2:30 A.M. (Thanks to the neighbors' two barking dogs) and was quite comfortable. I should also add that I'm a bit of a cold sleeper (Thanks to my 160lb frame). I quickly fell back asleep and woke again at 6:30 A.M. I was just starting to feel a chill from underneath. Not C.B.S., but an overall chill. I could have probably gone back to sleep, but decided to go ahead and get up. I would say that the quilt will take me to about 45 degrees. It is very well made and will be my warm weather quilt on all outings. In my opinion, this quilts a winner!
    When life gives you lemons, keep them, because hey, free lemons!
