    DD Hammock

    I am a newbe to the forum and hammock camping. I have decided on a DD Travel Hammock, however there is a simple problem. Freight. Although weighing only 4 1/2 pounds shipping is a whopping $168.00. Has anyone on the forum found a "better way". What I had in mind is someone coming to the US in the next month or two. Trans-ship via Canada? Group Purchase or something like that. Sure could use some ideas.

    I bought a DD 2010 Travel Hammock and DD XL Tarp last year and did not pay anything like that in shipping.

    This canadian site offers the Travel Hammock for 99 bucks including free shipping...

    If it's the wrong hammock they have a few others listed. Some include the "DD" before the name and some don't.

    Excellent Gentlemen. I got the price quote directly from DD Hammock but didn't know about the Canadian site. Will give them a buzz tomarrow.

    Thanks

    Let us know how it goes. I'm about ready to pull the trigger on a DD myself.

    Shipping

    Sent an E-Mail to the Canadian supplier and received a prompt reply to the effect that they cannot ship to the US because of Liability Insurancde Problems in the US. They suggested finding a Canadian to order them for me and have them trans-ship them to the US.

    I have the dd frontline. the travel hammock has non breathable material, make sure you know that less breathability of the material might give you more condensation.
    I'm happy with my dd, integrated bug net rocks!
