    My First ever camping Hammock-DD Frontline

    I am really excited as I have just ordered a DD frontline camping hammock, fly and snakeskin. I researched many including Warbonnet, Eno, Clark, Hennessy, Claytor and finally DD. I had been looking at hammocks for serveral months now, My research was greatly enhanced by the information on Hammock Forums!.
    My decision to buy the DD Frontline Hammock and 3x3 fly was based on durability and quality, Features and Accessories available, and Value for the dollars. my ultimate decision was to go with the DD hammock as everything I could find indicated that they have a great quality product, the right features for me, supportive customer service(Thanks Penny!) and the right kind of information available (thanks bushcrafters for the in depth product videos ) that made buying one of these sight unseen easy.
    In my opinion, after several months of research, DD represents the best overall build, features and value out there. They have a great line of accessories as well.

    Now comes the hard part, waiting for the package to show up in the mail!

    You do know that this posting can't be validated until your package arrives and you post a pic of the new gear in use.

    Enjoy the goodies.

    You are going to love it. And, in my experience, it won't take long to get it. The best feature of that hammock is the bug screen if you use spreader poles. Also that it can be simply flipped over if you do not need the screen.

    I had good customer service from penny as well, the tarps seem very durable with my limited use of the 4x4m.

    Congrats on the new gear, I'm sure you'll love it!

    Thanks Guys,
    Craige, it is really cool to be able to hold conversations over the span of several countries and the Atlantic at the same time!
    Passingthru, they come with little poles now for the netting. I cannot wait to use this.
    Although today the wind is gusting, and it is snowing off and on. I **** near froze on my bike ride this morning, was sunny when I started..........
    Im working on an adjustable ridge line, two mini carabiners and a prusset knot on one end, sort of like the single line suspension systems on the forums.

    I like my DD Frontline, a very nice piece of kit! I got mine used from a member here on the forum.

    I have used it successfully as a bivy by using a sheet of plastic underneath as a vapour barrier and jury rigging supports for the bugnet. (OK, it was successful after I killed off the ants and did up the zipper...I had forgotten to do up the second zip and hadn't yet treated with permetherin I did not make that mistake the second night. )


    One of these days I will sew the ends of the spreader tabs shut as I find the bar ends up poking through.

    I have also considered replacing the RL that the organizer hangs from. It is made from shock cord and sags and when I hang my book, watch, mp3, flashlight, cap, wallet etc. from it. Yeah, I know I'm a hoarder. It is probably fine for most folks, but I am NOT most folk.


    For the price and features it is definitely hard to beat. Hope it gets to you soon so you can find out for yourself!
