    BIAS Hammocks

    So let me tell you about BIAS hammocks. Keep in mind, most of my contact has been with Brian, but he is from the MS delta and that makes him all right!

    I started with a WW Micro DL with the Knotty Mods, GREAT HAMMOCK! They gave me a delivery date and hit it about a week early. I thoroughly enjoyed the hammock, 16 nights in about 60 days. Great field experience, best nights sleep on the trail I have ever had. The first 2 nights I went down at 10 and did not move again until 8 in the morning. This is from a side sleeper, that tosses and turns ALL night.. I had a minor issue, let's just blame it all on me not the hammock. I ended up swapping out for the WW DL, with the Knotty Mod.

    Despite peak season for these guys, they worked me in and voila, I received this hammock today, WOW! My DL is Olive green on the inside and Coyote Brown on the outside. The fabric is amazing, the hang is great the spread is wonderful. I promptly hung it and took a 1 hr nap. WOW.

    Beg, borrow, or steal your way into one of these hammocks. Anyone close want to hang in mine just PM me.

    We need a BIAS sub-forum!

    Ordered mine yesterday, WWM DL Talked to Brian today about the HF discount not working on line and he credited my purchase, was not expecting that. Looking forward to adding the BIAS to the collection.

    Wow. Really. Wow.

    So grateful for you HF guys. There's a real decency and understanding there when orders require more time and effort. More than anything, Shane and I appreciate the support. While I get far too much personal credit, the reality is that Shane is the builder supreme or as I like to call him, "el constructor." I am the nerd, handling the digital and building some easy merchandise. The complicated stuff... well, tncamper is the man.

    Hey Brian, never realized you were the nerd of the two of you (you hide it well). Speaking of a great product, I love my hammock still. got a few more nights in it and love it. The only reason I don't have more time in it is because I want to preserve this hammock as long as I can. It has found it's home inside my backpack for those great trips in the outdoors. My DIY is my daily sleeper, but thanks again to you and tncamper for such a wonderful set of products.

    Spent last night in my new WW DL, of course temp and humidity are high down here after Isaac, so I had to deal with that, power is back on, despite the AC in the house I chose to sleep outside in my WW. Another great nights sleep, the fan helped with the temp and humidity, BIAS took care of everything else. Price, comfort, personal service ALL stellar. Keep it up!

    Sorry for the heavily BIAS'ed opinions about these hammocks!

    just a quick shout out. I was told when I ordered mine that it would be at least ten days. It was like 3 days later that a package showed on the door step. Delivered early! What a great suprise. Underpromised and overdelivered. I like it. Thanks Brian.

    Funny you should mention the brown colored hammock. Made me think about this past weekend. I spent 2 nights in my favorite brown hammock and just realized how much it looked like a Moose from about 100 ft. away. Glad it isn't Moose season till Nov. but I had to wonder if that one guy was out there thinking that he was going to bag an early Moose.
    Think I will put some red X's on mine.
    Love the brown though. Very comfy feeling. Unlike the red that makes me feel like standing up in it and dancing all night.
