    buying DD tarp from store

    Hi guys,

    I am interested in getting a 3x3 DD tarp, however I do not want to do an online purchase and since one of my friend is heading to London for his holidays I was thinking of asking him to help me get a tarp for me.

    So any of you know which store can he go to to get a DD tarp in London?

    thanks and appreciate the help.

    DD is in Edinburg Scotland. It's a bit removed from London. I don't think they have a retail presence.
    Really on line is fine - these guys have a good reputation from what i can see,
    Look at their website http://www.ddhammocks.com/contact
    They have a distributor in Australia as well-but send DD an email and see what they say.
    I bought a underquilt from Arrowhead Equipment in the U.S. It was a seamless transaction and that seems the same for most or all of the cottage vendors on hammock forums from what I can see.

    I just bought a tarp and 60m of amsteel from dd hammocks a couple of weeks ago, I live just outside Edinburgh and they are based in Edinburgh and they are only online as far as I know, however they are very easy to talk to and quick with communication so you can ask about different options to pay and they should be very friendly and forthcoming with all the different options!

    I am not absolutely sure, but I think that their website prices include shipping. So you will know exactly what your tarp would cost delivered.
    When I ordered a hammock from them it was delivered to the states in 2-3 days.

    Yeah you're right, all their items are priced to include shipping on each item, so what you add to your basket is what you pay.

    I have to say, the tarps aren't really lightweight but they are well made and seem pretty much bomproof! I will be looking to upgrade come the summer though as 2lbs + is heavy!

    You are correct to be concerned about having it shipped to Singapore. You might be getting into some sort of Trade Agreement. I would call and ask for details about having it shipped to your country. It is some times tricky buying bettween countries. So man legalities to consider.

    Since your friend is willing to bring it from a store, perhaps he would also be willing to have it shipped to his address in the UK? Even easier for him, if you order it delivered to his doorstep.
