    Thumbs up New Half-Zipped Dutchware Hammock Excited!

    SO I have recently gotten back to hammock camping, and spent a lot of time looking for a better entry point, I came from the eno/amok and recently purchased a hammock from Dutchware.

    Now I'm a big boy (actually Fat, but letís not start picking on me just yet), I also did not have the $ to move to the high end under/top quilt and tarp so I wanted something that would allow me to use an existing insulated sleeping pad and a cheap eno underquilt from my early days.

    I went with Dutchware Half-Zipped with 2 layers. of Hexon 2.4 why? well for one.. in fat, plus I now can use my pad between the layers and the extra thickness should have no issue with weight, maybe after a year I will move to a more advanced hammock but this bad boy is built to last. With the bug net sewn in its one less thing I need to deal with. I may purchase a sock later as I donít do that much cold weather camping, and no I'm not a back-packer or hiker. Did I mention in fat. I own a Jeep 4x4 and pull a small trailer on my Jeep outings so.. im 100% not in the light gear crowd.

    Now that I have humiliated myself letís get to my 1st thoughts. (pic to come as the weather has been poor but will update this thread with some pic's once I get time to set it up)

    1st. The Quality is amazing, from what I spent I was most impressed at the quality of Dutch's product. OMG this thing is well put together and a lot of time was put into making sure itís a quality product. I spent an hour looking over the stitching and how it was constructed. If youíre looking for Quality Dutchware is A+ in my book.

    2nd. buying experience. Website was easy and shipping was super-fast, appears as I got a personally thanks (guessing it was from Dutch) written on my invoice in the package. Nice touch and tracking and email updates where nice.

    3rd. did I say Quality. Ok. see #1 just canít say any more about how well this thing is.

    I am using WoopieSlings and toggles for hooking into my tree straps, which I may swap but I have used them in the past and itís something I know.

    SO for now thats my early thoughts on my new Dutchware half-zipped hammock.

    again, photos to come once the weather allows me to venture out and set this bad-boy up.

    Always nice when you get a new piece of kit and you're really happy with it.
    Yes, my pack weighs 70lbs, but it's all light weight gear....
