    I'm in if you want... In fact I'd test any thing you want tested.

    I think it is great to have the manufacture's reps on the forum.

    absolutely! see without guys like you setting us straight we can sound like a bunch of ninnying hair salon clients. Id be willing to test out the Skeeter Beeter for sure.. in fact Ive had my eye on it for a while now. I already own the Ultralight, and if it matters to you I decided to keep it OVER the Claytor Mosquito model. I find your Travel Hammock products to be just as nice in construction as the other 2 brands that Ive used. Here's a pic of the Ultralight coupled with a MacCat micro, in central Arizona. I did replace the "S" hooks and the stock ropes. The only way to hang a tarp on a structural ridgeline is to add webbing straps. Please PM me for testing guidelines.

    I'd be up for testing an Air Bivy Extreme Shelter, should you need any testers for that one...

    Thanks

    Thanks for your replies, it's good to be on the forum. I've been wondering where all the hammock lovers have been hiding out!

    If you weren't already a salesman I was going to recommend they hire you . I think it's great to have manufacturers on the site to answer questions, usually they disclose that first though.

    I'm sure you won't have any problem finding testers here for your new hammock. I still plan on picking up a skeeter-beater at some point.

    Welcome to the site!

    Welcome to the forum. I'll see about getting you added to the manufacturer's list.

    Welcome to the site!

    Sorry to all of you for not disclosing my position, I wasn't exactly sure how this worked, wasn't trying to be sneaky! Hope to chat with many of you and learn from your experiences with my products as well as others.

    Is that a window in the side of the netting??

    Looks like two small squares in the netting.

    Didn't mean to imply anything other than you gave yourself away!

    I was perusing your site and noticed you have both nylon and polyester hammocks, I was wondering if you had any info on the differences or are they pretty much the same?

    Thanks,
