    Well I just read through this whole thread, and I have to say I'm still interested in the results.

    I can certainly understand having technical difficulties - I've been there. Would it perhaps be easier to borrow some gear from a friend? You usually can't throw a stone too far without hitting someone with a nice video camera or dslr.

    Agreed, wouldn't be worth it now. I don't know what he could cover that hasn't been discussed here already...

    He received free gear on the promise of a comprehensive review. Backing out now would pretty much confirm the prevalent suspicion that he is potentially taking advantage of the kindness of our cottage manufacturers.

    I don't think it was ever his intent to take advantage of anyone, I just think too much time has passed to make the review worthwhile. The hammocks should just be sent back and this review forgotten...

    It will be good to have a comprehensive review of the bridges, much like Edmunds reviews all sedans together, etc, which work along with the individual car reviews to give the potential buyer more perspective.

    But for cryin' out loud, if I lived in Ontario, I wouldn't have done the reviews by now either. I wouldn't be ready to leave the igloo for another month!

    I don't think it's been stated what the destination of the gear is to be after the test. We've all had good intentions and either failed or experienced delays and setbacks, well maybe not the rest of you but I have.

    Hopefully the review goes forward, admittedly it will be after significant discussion has transpired, but I'll watch a couple of the reviews regardless if they materialize.

    Who knows, this equipment may show up and group hangs in a raffle or some other display of good citizenship.

    and it snowed today in Toronto...

    where the reviewer lives they usually get much more snow than Toronto, so he's probably adding another level to his igloo

    We also didn't receive free hammocks costing hundreds each. I thought the main reason for the review was to see how they compared to each other with the release of Warbonnets new bridge. But so much time has passed, and so many reviews have been made, that it just seems moot at this point.
