    Hammock with ATTACHED under quilt ...

    Hangers ...

    A few months ago, buddy Mule asked ... "Why don't you make a differential cut under quilt ATTACHED to a hammock?"

    Being the gramMAN that I am, the creative juices started to stir ...

    Long story short ... It's here and for sale. www.dphammockgear.com Hammock/Bug Net page

    Wait'll you see what the dp HEETER HYBRID hammock/under-quilt weighs ...


    FYI: Prices are up as we are in process of setting up with eBay and I'm sure you know, eBay wants their cut ...

    So ... till October 1, 2011, 10% discount to anyone who mentions "Hammock Forums Discount Please" with their NON eBay order ...
    FYI: Website isn't powerful enough to calculate the discount with your order, so I'll send a 10% refund check along with your dp gear.

    Happy Hanging this Fall ...

    Is the insulation just sewn to the perimeter or is it quilted to the hammock body?

    DutchMAN,

    The dp Heeter Hybrid is perimeter sewn for more than one reason over quilting.
    Thanks for asking.


    Took a look at your sight and I'm most impressed hammock gear. Do you have a machine shop?

    I made custom bicycle frames for 12 years nationally with a small manual shop. Shut down due to labor intensity and the major bicycle manufacturers starting producing models similar to what the public wanted. I'm thinking there is only a handful of custom frame builders left.

    Also, my being of Dutch heritage, and I assume you are, does the saying "If ya' ain't Dutch, ya ain't much" hold any validity?

    I thought about making an insulated hammock but it can be tricky with making sure the insulation tight to the bottom. That is why I asked if it was quilted. However that can be just as tricky. Actually I don't think it would work on a gathered end hammock. Things kind of need to move. I think it is a good idea.

    Actually i am Pennsylvania "Dutch". Which is really German heritige. When they migrated here from Germany and were asked where they were from they replied Deutsch and it was interpretted as Dutch. I am only a machinist by hobby. Mostly just to make gear.

    Very cool gear! I may have to try out some of your hammocks. I like the no-stretch hammock body myself.

    I also noticed your bug net -- reminds me of the HUG design, with some modifications. It think it's a great design, personally

    Dejoha,
    I'm not sure how Nylon ever got ahold of the hammock industry. Polyesters, in my head are vastly superior for comfort. And in our case, a coated polyester.

    As www.dphammockgear.com states, "we discovered this aspect by accident" trying to double duty the hammock as a poncho wrap as our Triastic fabric is waterproof.

    Not a perfect poncho for sure, but it really works having the hammock waterproof and using it as a rain wrap on one's shoulders/head.

    But by far the best feature with our Triastic fabric, a low-stretch, waterproof fabric, is how it Brazilian lays. I equate it to a firm mattress feel. Plus, it really shines and helps keep our attached under quilt spaced properly for warmth with a differential cutting. (See dp Heeter Hybrid on dp's Hammock webpage) I should mention how we gather the ends helps also.



    dp Bug Net: Not a perfect bug net, but we wonder why permanently attach a bug net to a hammock with the problematic zipper and its weight, when it really isn't used but a few weeks out of the year?

    Plus, the light weight and small packing size of our bug net really makes our design shine. I might mention, our dp Bug Net sells really well.

    Thank you for the kind comments Dejoha.

    Your Tarp End Doors might come in handy for some guys with tarps without doors. They remind me of the ingenious invention of the Grizz Beak and the Grizz Beak v2.
