    Maybe i can get a test lay in gideons this weekend. Definatly thinking of dipping my toe in the water to see if it will work for me. Is there a return policy ,and if so how long? The weight for an all inclusive set up is amazing.

    You're welcome to try laying in mine Hairbear; can't speak to any return policy but I do know you could recoupe most of your money by selling it here on the forum.

    Enjoy the new week!

    I don't think Dream Hammocks has a satisfaction return policy (like Warbonnet's, for example). They do have an excellent resale, though. I'm sure you could sell it here for 90-95% of original value if used very lightly.

    I have the 11' Darien in coyote. Received it a few weeks ago just before the blizzard hit. Had just enough time to make a very quick trip to the local park the day before the blizzard to hang it for a few minutes. Absolutely love the room and comfort. The fabric looks so fragile it kind of scares me, but it feels sturdy when I'm in the hammock.

    Because I am tall I use a long UQ, and the quilt hooks actually end up a bit in-board from the corners of the UQ. Theys till seem to do the job, but with the long UQ it would be better if the hooks were a bit closer to the ends of the hammock.

    Other than that. I think I am going to love everything about this hammock.

    Re: New Darien UL in Coyote; 1st Test Hang

    Haha. My quilt hooks are all the way at the ends of my quilt. I'd like them a bit more inboard. Guess you can't place them to please everybody. I was thrilled just to discover they were there!

    I slept out two nights this week and must say I love this hammock.

    The quilt hooks are actually meant to hold the suspension lines - not to attach directly to the quilt...

    Sure, of course. I went and looked at my setup and I too, would prefer the hooks a but farther out, at least on the foot end. I might move them or add another pair. I am going to add a hook or something to fix my quilt at my shoulder, which tends to pop out of my quilt otherwise.

    Sorry for talking through my hat earlier.
