Jacks R Better Bear Mountain Bridge Deluxe Hammock (nearly)Complete setup:
The Hummingbird Single Hammock is a very impressive little package that packs a huge punch. Weighing in at 5.2 ounces it can hold up to 300 lbs of weight. The Hummingbird Single Hammock is the lightest and smallest hammock currently on the market.
Approximately 4-6 weeks ago I was sent a Traveler XXL double hammock. Since then I have setup the hammock a few times.
While trying to lighten my pack load for the coming year, I learned that my hammock with my alterations weighed 1 lb. 6 oz. Add to that an 8 oz. bug net for a total of 1 lb. 14 oz Almost 2 lbs! As much as I like my DIY hammock, it was a bit too much. So I went searching the Internet for an alternative. What I found was the Molly Mac Gear Bivy Hammock. It weighs less than a pound and is so multipurpose as to be the Swiss Army knife of hammocks.
Before making my recent purchase, I had done hours upon hours of research trying to figure out which hammock was right for me. I am a fairly frugal person when it comes to spending my money (so is my wife) so I had a lot of questions in my mind before buying my hammock from a cottage industry. What size, what style, what materials, what type of suspension; those were some of the things I was concerned about. After countless amounts of hours browsing, I thought I had finally settled on a particular hammock, the BIAS Weight Weenie Micro single layer.
As a member of hammockforums.com I hear all about the latest gadgets in the hammocking world. One vendor that comes up in almost every thread is Dutch and his DutchWare line of lightweight hammock hardware. Like any gear junkie, I let out a bigfoot howl over every new piece of titanium bling that comes out of his shop. I am going to share a little review on one of them.
