    VIDEO: BIAS Buginator Review

    Horrible camera, horrible lighting in The Swamp, but a great piece of kit I got recently, and only just got around to doing a gear review on it.

    Nicely done... Looking forward to the next one. Camera man now? Your a star already. Before you know it youll have guest appearances on good morning america...

    Looks like a nice piece of gear. So it packs down well? My hammock just fits in my bishop bag, how much more room would you say this takes up?
    Enjoy life's journey, but leave no tracks...

    If you have any extra room in your bag after it's packed in, you should be able to cram this thing in there, but if you're already at a tight fit, you'd do well to pack them separately.

    Nice work, Call me slow, but I just figured out that BIAS stood for Butt In A Sling. I knew of "Butt In A Sling", but always wondered why I never saw the "BIAS" in the manufacturer's / vendor section. I thought it was a seperate company or something

    I Love Your Suspenion System

    I love your suspension system. I doubt that those chains are the weakest link. (Excuse the pun)

    Thanks for the video. I keep kicking around if I'm going to make one or buy one and from where.

    The chain is loud, but it lets me adjust for a longer or shorter hammock when I'm testing.

    I've had DIY nets and now I've tested this one, and I can say confidently that when I get another one (and I will be getting a few more, 'cause I put a few kits together for a few family members) it'll be these.

    Thanks for the review. I have enjoyed them, so please keep 'em up!

    I did have to laugh at your lighting and the effect from it. At about the 6:45 mark when you're inside the netting, I swear it was like looking at some bizarre ultrasound picture at the OB's office! "Ma'am, you're gonna need a C-section for this baby for sure!"

    I like my buginator. It fits the longer hammocks very well. You could pack it down to about the size of a soda can. The nano might pack down a bit more and you shed an oz or so.
    If you ain't havin' fun, you're doin' it wrong

    Since I bought my house 5 years ago, I've never replaced the halogen lights in the ceiling of The Swamp.

    Now that I'm doing this, proper-ish lighting is gonna be a thing I need, so new bulbs are going in tonight.

    I'm suppose to get my xl this weekend(if the hang isn't cancelled due to rain). I'm really looking forward to spending some spring afternoons in it(not to mention campouts)
