As a new member, and a soon-to-be new hammocker, I went out searching for websites with cheap materials. The Joann near me has only a limited array of ripstop, and none i liked (pricey too). On one of my past threads asking for places with cheap fabric (price not quality), and reasonable shipping rates, I was guided to the website http://simplylightdesigns.com/ . The selection is limited, but now I know it is only ran by one person, I can see why. The prices for DIY fabric, Amsteel, and Webbing is amazing. Example, the Amsteel blue (color charcoal black) is $0.22 per foot, same as big name websites.
So, I got curious when i saw the option of custom gear. I requested a simple 2 layer 11' hammock, but my questions grew to more. Within 18 hours, and over night, 25 emails were sent back and forth between me and Jared Baker. All with the answers I needed, and with a friendly attitude.
SOOOO... I decided with ordering a Hammock, tree straps, and 100 Feet of Amsteel. 83$ later, He said it might even ship tonight and he will be getting me a shipping number... O did i mention its FREE SHIPPING?
