    BIAS Weight Weenie Hammock

    I recently got a BIAS Weight Weenie Hammock and wanted to share.


    Description:
    Hammock
    10' x 62" Finished Size
    Triple Stitched Ends w/ AmSteel Continuous Loops
    1.1 Ripstop
    Weighs 7.52oz in Stuff Sack


    Suspension
    BIAS straps (72 inches x 1 inch)
    12ft Whoopie Slings
    Optional 3" Carbon Toggles

    Cost for everything Under $58

    Everything (hammock, straps, whoopies, toggles) in stuffsack was ~10oz. Plus Brain said they are coming out with a Weight Weenie Micro (little more narrow) that weighs ~1.5oz less.


    I think it is an awesome setup for the light hikers. I am 6'1" @ 220lbs and get a pretty comfortable lay in it. Well crafted and super light. They also offer carbon toggles that are the lightest I have seen. This is my go to light hammock. Best bang for your buck and great customer service. I PMd Brian (jbrianb) many time and he answered all of my questions. My ww, whoopies, straps, and toggles weigh in right around 10oz total ! I should have a field test review soon.

    BIAS is even helping out the HF Members by selling to us at a discount.

    Ah man! That thing packs down tiny! Thanks for posting the pics...going to be a looong couple of weeks waiting for that hammock to get itself up here!

    +1 on the great customer service, Brian was great to deal with we emailed back and forth and quickly sorted out the details on getting one of these up to BC Canada. Made it happen!

    Cheers!

    TackyHiker, Callahan:

    tncamper and I are blushing.

    You guys are a great example of why we offer the HF discount. Great folks to work with. Thanks for the positive shout outs and a special thanks to my partner, tncamper, who does the fabulous needlework on the WW series and who's the master of solving mechanical and design problems.

    Tacky Hicker - glad you like it. Thanks for the shout out. I've been busy the past couple of days getting stuff ready to get out and haven't had much time on here.

    Callahan - I just finished yours and it should go out tomorrow. Hope you enjoy it!
    It'll be alright Friday!

    I appreciate the attention to detail with my order. I added a suspension and the Knotty UG, after the fact, and they were right on it.

    Can't wait for delivery
