    Imported hammock brand similarites?

    It looks like many of the imported hammocks are coming out of the same factories. I haven't been able to do an up-front touchy-feely comparison--- it looks like many of the ENO, Grand Trunk, Pawleys Island, and others are clones or just have different logos slapped on the stuff sacks. Am I right? If not, which ones use the better fabric/workmanship?

    I posted a thread last week asking if there was really a difference in all the parachute type hammocks. someone did say that there was talk of them being made together but I dont believe theres any proof but I dont know for sure. dont hold me to it haha
    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.

    Randy : yea but just remember yer roots and where ya come from....you got Hennessy in yer blood son......

    You might try searching on Alibaba. If you find a company selling single layer hammocks in lots of 100 or whatnot... SOMEONE is buying them wholesale.
    An emergency of my own making...is still an emergency.

    Last week my ENO came with a Grand Trunk sticker in the bag . . . whatever that means.
