    New Opinions?

    I'm considering a DD Hammock, in part due to this little remark by Dutch.

The time before Dutch owned every hammock made. The days will end that man will kill man, tornadoes swept across trailer parks, and American Idol rotted the minds of the forgotten.
    I've been reading the DD subforum, but to say I'm confused is probably an understatement; which is it neo? Love it or hate it?

    I'm mighty tempted to get one of their underquilts just to help justify the $50 in shipping (still think that's a scam). Not too bad of a deal getting hammock and underquilt for right around $200. But, I don't want to just waste my money either; other than that whole Dutch thing (I'm currently at 14 camping hammocks BTW ).

    So those of you with one, would you buy another? Would you recommend one to a friend... or to an enemy? I'm leaning towards the "Camping Hammock". I get a free net-hammock too, ummmmm, yippee?

    Thanks!

    My DD hammock is made of some of the sturdiest material that I have even seen in hammock construction. I will probably still be around long after global warming, meteorite crashes, and nuclear war has taken it's toll on the human race; cockroaches and the DD hammock. I really like the feel of netting. I think if I were taking someone out for the first time I would have them use the DD with a pad setup.

    OK, thanks!
    That's a perfect post for the reason behind my question. I'm trying to collect hammocks for use with my Meetup group out here. I'm getting mostly newbs who do not have set-ups, so if I want to hold overnights....I'm gonna need some hammocks! If this would be a good 'first' hanging hammock, then I'm probably sold on the idea.

    I like the DD but I never take it hiking b/c it is too heavy. I've been thinking of selling it b/c it also takes up too much room in my hammock bin. I'm afraid it might roll over on my BB and wrinkle it or bend my tri-ring. I have rethought my biogtry of trailerpark crushing tornadoes. Sometimes I root for the tornado.

    I always root for the tornado. Now that I don't live in Kansas that is. There is a reason I left that state in the early 90s...tornadoes.

    If you think anymore about selling that DD, give me a holler.
