Great price and it looks like a decent hammock. I would be a little worried about condensation with that fabric cover.
I've been looking into DD hammocks for a while in my search for my first hammock.
As I understand it that model is basically a Z hammock but withthe sleeper inside. Basically you could use it as a standard netless Z hammock.
I've been considering the travel hammock (basically the same Z style but with a bug net). I'm waiting for the new fly to come into stock, its to replace the current one that needs seam sealing before use.

I have a DD Travel Hammock with the mosquito net. I also have a HH explorer ultralite. DD comfy and hangs well and quickly - DD has a wee bit of streach in webbing but not arse dragging kind...chief benefit for me (Canada hiking and camping) is the double layer bottom on the DD Hammock -- a pad (or other insulation ) just slides in easy peasy - it works! I added a wee bit of velcro along the edge so the pad even more firmly secured in the layered pouch. I like this hammock - not as comfy as the HH but not so much less comfy as one might expect- once you get the thing to North America (stoopid shipping $) and buy a good tarp not or so much cheaper than HH expedition or other similar hammocks...good hammock and good value.
There is a group buy going on the DD that ends today.
