    The $55 ultralight system

    Butt in a Sling is having a limited time offer. We're selling our WEIGHT WEENIE HAMMOCK with a FULL SUSPENSION SYSTEM for $55 playing off the success of our $50 Camper Hammock System. Quantities are limited and the offer will not last long.

    You get:
    1) an 8 oz. Weight Weenie Hammock that's 64 inches wide and 11 feet long.
    2) A standard ridgeline which comes with all hammock purchases at 9 feet.
    3) A pair of whoopie slings made from 12 feet of 7/64 AmSteel Blue.
    4) Aluminum toggles.
    5) 1-inch x 72-inch polyester webbing (rated to 1,500 lbs). Polyester has less stretch, more strength, and better abrasion resistance than nylon or polypro.

    It's a helluva deal. Get it while it lasts!

    Tell your friends. We want to peddle out some of these and take a deep breath in time for the Reelfoot Lake group hang!

    Review of $50 camping kit

    Folks, I'd like to do a quick review of this kit. I was the lucky winner of the BIAS Facebook.com contest for their free silver Weight Weenie (they made 2), and I got one in the mail a couple of weeks ago. To my disappointment, we got a little more snow here in Buffalo and so I didn't have a chance to run out and put it up.

    Opening the package, I found that everything was bundled nicely in the pouch that it came in. I pulled out the hammock; this is a silver/grey ripstop nylon gathered-end hammock. Very soft material, and very nice build quality.

    Having come from a Hennessy, the first thing that I had to do was figure out the toggles. Several minutes on the BIAS site, along with some time with Shug (on the knot, NOT on the toggle), and I was good to go to set up the hang.

    I put up the straps (super long, not like the ones from the HH at all), and set the toggles in place. The next thing that I realized was that I had no idea what to do with the adjustable ridge line. This took a little more research and measuring (83%), but once I had that figured out I made the necessary adjustments to the toggle placements and put the hammock back up with the ridge line. That totally made the difference with the hang, and allowed for a comfortable diagonal lay, even considering the closeness of the hang points (I don't have any trees in my little back yard, so I hung from the kids' treehouse that I built for them instead).

    This thing is really really roomy! After letting all 3 kids test it (this took much of the afternoon), I got a chance to settle down for a little while in the hammock. Very comfortable, very well built, and very light weight considering the size of the hammock. Of course, now I have to figure out if I want to get a tarp and some kind of bug protection and replace the HH with the WW when I go hiking. Darn the consequences!

    We are working on getting the bugnets wrapped up, but have been really busy on orders and getting ready for the Reelfoot hang. Keep checking the site and we'll make a post when we have them up. The last thing I wanted was to get them going and leave for a long weekend. I'm sure we'll be backed up enough as it is.

    I glad to hear you liked it.
    It'll be alright Friday!
