    All Terrain- First Impressions

    Got my ATHH yesterday and I am very impressed so far. This thing is huge. Laying diagonal should be no issue, if you setup with the PU coating on the inside and use a pad, it should not slide around.

    Coming in around a pound it's still not to heavy. I don't like the hooks and will be modding to rings.

    I will be doing a hang test on saturday and will have more then.

    I to got mine yesterday, and I have to say, even with the problems that kept them from being sold, I really like it! I hung mine last night and did a little late night reading in it, and I was able to lay, for all practical purposes, flat. It was very comfortable. Easy to hang. I just wrapped line around two trees a few times and hooked the hammock to one of the wraps on each end. Real easy, but I just got lucky in how far my trees were apart. I'll be modding also, but I haven't decided how yet . I do like the simplicity of the hammock with the hooks though.

    Mine arrived today. I took it out of the stuff sack and spread it out. It looks great but I haven't played with it yet. I would like to see some diagram instruction or something like that showing it's varied uses and how to pitch them. I am not as creative as some of you, but at the same time... I haven't taken the time to unhook the s hooks and mess around with it as a tarp.

    Thanks Chief Hammock Officer.... I'll be getting a check in the mail to you before Monday.

    PS.. Hint about the stuff sack... Took me three tries to get the item back in the sack but not because of the coating issue. I started at the joiniing seam and started to stuff from there. I finally succeeded when I grabbed the S hooks and stuffed those first. leaving the joining seam for the last. That may be a no brainer for some of you.. but it wasn't for me.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Thanks for the feeback

    Nice! Glad to hear that a few of you have received the hammocks and glad to hear you are satisfied to this point. On the new ATHH (V2) we have done hangtags with instructions and print information on the outside pouch making it easier to figure out. I'm going to attach some pictographs that show the various uses, i'm sure there are more and would love to hear about them.

    This has been really fun getting a chance to speak with most of you and sharing some of our gear with you!

    Here is the link to view the pictographs and a couple basic pictures....

    That addresses my comment. I would find that helpful. Thumbs up. I do remember seeing those on the website and probably would have stumbled back there sooner or later. But having the readily available with the product is even better.

    ATHH V1 Vs. V2

    The differences between V1 & V2 are......

    The PU coating and general design/build of the product is correct. No more sticky PU coating on the inside of the stuff sack and the end folds were done correctly, making it easier to take out and put back the "S" hooks.

    We changed the color from olive green to a dark blue.

    V1 had 10 takeoff's and V2 has 8

    Lowered the weight from 22 ounces to 20 ounces

    Proper hangtags and printed information on outside stuff sack

    Same overall functions

    Hope this helps!

    Cheif,

    I just received mine today, and am eager to test it out. Neither here nor there, but another waterproof sack that goes inside a backpack/pannier I have is coated on the inside. It definately detracts, so I am glad you all decided to wait until the good version could be brought out. I am excited to get out and test!

    Where are we to send feedback? Your email?

    Mods--do you all have plans for the reviews?

    WHAT! Went from a perfectly good stealth color to blue? There's a mod you might want to reconsider!

    Seriously, you've done a great thing here, Chief! I'm looking forward to testing mine out when it gets here.
