Okay. I've been talking to Nick, founder of DD Hammocks, about pricing for a group buy on the hammocks mentioned in this thread. I am posting this thread to gauge the interest and get an idea on how many hammocks that this group buy may entail. I am setting this up as a poll so that I can get a fairly accurate count of those interested. I just asked about pricing of the 2 models of hammocks: the Camping Hammock and the Travel Hammock. I did not get pricing on tarps, but I can if there is enough interest. Here some info and pics of hammocks.
Please do not vote in the poll unless you are serious about purchasing one or more of the hammocks
If you are ordering more than one of any particular model, please let me know so that I can adjust the count. If you change your mind about purchasing a hammock, let me know so that the count can be adjusted.
Size: 2.7m x 1.4m (~8.6' x 4.6') (comfy for people up to 6ft 5", ~330 lbs)
Weight: 700g (~1.54 lbs) (not including extra 10m of webbing)
Color: Olive green
Includes: 6m of webbing attached plus 10m of new stronger rope / webbing and a small stuff sack.
Two layers of nylon so you can insert a pad/ thermarest in cold weather.
Size: 2.7m x 1.4m (~8.6' x 4.6') (comfy for people up to 6ft 5")
Weight: 1.2kg approx (~2.65 lbs) - please note it comes with 10m (~33') of our new/ stronger webbing, which doesn't stretch, attached (5m at either end) - the webbing weighs approx 400g (~.88 lbs).
Color: Olive green
Includes: 10m of webbing (5m attached at either end), 2 x 2m lengths of elastic rope to support the mosquito net and a small stuff sack.
Additional costs would be PayPal fees and the cost of shipping the hammocks out to everyone once I get them. I estimate the PayPal Fees and USPS shipping to be around an additional $10 or less. I will have to get an exact price for shipping. Worst case scenario, you are looking at about $63 for the final cost of the more expensive Travel Hammock. Be sure to take into account that a Claytor Jungle Hammock, which is very similar to the Travel Hammock, will run you about $100 if purchased from the Claytor website.Originally Posted by Nick @ DD Hamocks[B
