    I'll let this thread run until at least the end of June. If we haven't gotten enough interest by the end of the month, the group buy will be put off until a later date.

    Too bad, these are nice hammocks. I would love to get my hands on one more.
    This really looks much like a Claytor. The Claytor no net is a 10 ft x 4 ft double layer, mine weighed about 22 ozs, and cost $45 including shipping from Thailand. And it is one of the most comfortable hammocks, as is the Jungle Hammock.

    I have been wanting to try a Claytor jungle but I like the DD's color much better. That's the main reason I wanted to instigate a group buy. Other than that they look almost identical. It also looks like the DD hammock is a little wider than a Claytor at 4.6', if the Jungle Hammock is just 4' wide.

    Yeah, the DD is nice and wide. Sleeping on your side is easy, and the double layer bottom is nice if you use a pad, or even throwing a fleece blanket between the layers.

    THAT IS correct, the JH and NN are both 4 ft wide.

    Just another bump.

    I am thinking about going ahead with this group buy even if we don't reach 10 hammocks. I have been wanting to try out a Claytor-style hammock for a while, especially after trying out Mule's DIY version at the RRG hang out. I've always thought Claytor's were a little narrow for my taste. This hammock is a little wider and I love the color.

    So, assuming all 6 people are still in, we are looking $46 for the hammock, approx. $22 each for shipping from the UK, and I am estimating $6-8 for me to get the hammocks sent to their new owners. That's a total of $76, worse case scenario.

    So do we still want to go through with this, even if we don't hit 10 hammocks?

    The world will not be whole until I own every hammock made and every piece of gear the can possibly be attached to it. Only then will peace reign across the land. Evil shall be replaced by good, tears will stop and laughter will proceed with boundless joy. Little boys will look up to their father and ask about the dark times. The time before Dutch owned every hammock made. The days will end that man will kill man, tornadoes swept across trailer parks, and American Idol rotted the minds of the forgotten.
