    Looks like Dutch might have a viable lawsuit should he desire to pursue...imitation is the wrong kind of flattery...

    I agree, I have all of Dutch's gear, and they're great. Just thought I'd throw it up there, since it's a kinda obscure website. They have some other pretty cool gear there, and I was referred there, looking at some decent prices on used sleeping bags etc...(also, I'm kind of a camping gadget junkie)

    i doubt they are selling them for hammocks. they don't even give a load limit. just a novelty item
    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    Fish,

    Why do you say there could be a suit? Tons of metal biners out there.

    it's basically a metal mitten hook. I don't think it's realistic to act as if Dutch invented the concept, even if his gear is awesome.
