    Prediction=Dream Hammocks to be hiring!

    Ended up with a demo Darien UL post the MAHHA hang.
    I've thoroughly examined it, weighed it and fallen in love with it.
    Where can you get a hammock of this size with integral bug net,
    ridgeline organizer, Dutch quilt hooks installed, awesome camo
    pattern, for this price and weight?????? Only one place-Dream Hammocks.
    So I predict PS will have to hire/train for when the word fully gets out
    on this beauty.
    As a lot of you know I use a sock and Poof questioned the use of the Darien
    UL in a hammock sock. Why not! Even warmer! and no different getting in
    and out than if you were just under a tarp.
    Lay was wonderful. I went huge asym and was amazed at the room. I'm between 6 and 6'1" (shrinking with age so by the time you read this closer to
    6').
    Only thing I didn't see (eyes getting old too) was ties to hold up the bugnet
    when not in use.
    Bravo PapaSmurf; so hard to believe but the bar has been raised yet again.

    +1 Agree w you MedicineMan. Papa Smurf has engineered a sweet ultralight hammock with this one.

    The specs on the Darien UL are really impressive.
    Randy is really pushing the envelope which is great for everybody.

    UL Winter sock?.... i think he is almost done with my "nobul1" winter sock at .67oz per sqyd. We'll see what the final weight ends up being.

    Randy makes an awesome product and is just an all around nice guy too.

    Been curious for some time at Randy's hammock work. One of the few I have yet to try! At this rate its getting harder and harder to resist!

    Really like the looks of this hammock MM! How was it for flat on the asym? Any calf ridge? I've got a batched up knee and if it gets hyperextended at all, it drives me nuts. Been spending all my hang time in the RidgeRunner and love it, but would really like a full bugnet gathered end UL to round things our for keeping weight down.

    This one really fits the ticket, for all the reasons you listed above. Basically, its exactly the hammock I would build if I could build one.

    Cheers!

    It did feel really nice laying in it. Worth considering...feature set is really nice. Papa smurf did a great job.

    Callahan, you asked so I have to answer; just know Poof had it set up at home for her and all I did was crawl in. So yes I did get a LITTLE calf ridge-left leg when I initially got in, remember I did not dial it for me. I shifted further a-sym, as far a-sym as I could go and the ridge disappeared.

    Dang it, I was saving up for a WB new bridge hammock to give it a whirl. I all ready have a PSDB 62. But have been wanting something lighter. The ASYM lay may be the deal breaker for me though..especially since it is in the opposite direction in which I like to lay.
    I miss my 4.8Lb base weight as a ground dweller...But I sure DON'T MISS the ground.
