The Molly Mac gear Bivy Hammock first impression review by Ellis M. Delahoy

The article below was submitted to OutdoorTrailGear by a customer who recently purchased the Bivy Hammock made by Molly Mac Gear. Thank you Ellis! We look forward to a field report!

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.

Gear review by Mylifeoutdoors.com

When I was a little I loved to take straws from restaurants and attach them end to end to make one long epic straw. I don’t know what the fascination was, but it seems to be a pretty universal one. I have seen countless children, in countless restaurants making the same types of straws. Then you have crazy straws that loopy loop or form glasses or other crazy shapes. There’s just something about long straws that captivates the little kid in us. Maybe that’s why we like hydration bladders. In essence they are just really long straws.

The first and only hydration bladder I have ever owned is Camelbak. I actually own several and they have served me well through the years. But I recently had the opportunity to try a different hydration bladder called Hydrapak. It was my first time to see and use features another brand had to offer. And I was impressed with what they had come up with.

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.
