    Default Another Hammock Group buy

    I have just posted the seventh Hammock Group Buy on BCUK

    So far I have done 6 of these (50 hammocks each time) and there are currently about 15 ordered on the reserve list. The information is the same as the first post in this thread

    http://www.bushcraftuk.com/community/showthread.php?t=7510

    Or this one

    http://www.bushcraftuk.com/community/showthread.php?t=7795

    Or this

    http://www.bushcraftuk.com/community/showthread.php?t=8288

    or even this

    http://www.bushcraftuk.com/community/showthread.php?t=11866


    or a number of others, although frankly if you do not yet know about the group buy hammocks you really have not been to the BCUK site much.

    The last time the price worked out at 19.30 including postage and PayPal fees. The price should be the same provided I am placing the order in the next few weeks.

    I am not placing the order yet but will do so when we get to about 40 reserved between here and BCUK.

    No payment is required until I actually have the hammocks in my possession and am ready to send them out.

    The reserve list does not actually exist as such. It is just people saying they are interested and it gives me an idea of when to run the group buy. You are only sure to get a hammock if you are on the group buy list before it reaches the 50 required. I'll add you to this list anyway

    So far

    First off all let me say THESE ARE GREAT HAMMOCKS!

    Just checked out the homepage you linked to on your original BCUK page john and was suprised to see i already own one of these hammocks... except i think mines slightly smaller width? seems to be about 1.5m and the one i have is blue with a greeny blue trim (reverse colours of the hammock you see on the main page here)

    I got mine for 25 (about 15) in a supermarket in france and used it several times bivvying out both inland and by a river. love it to bits and when combined with a 3m tarp i braught from decathlon for the same price they make an awsom shelter

    The lable says its made of nylon, can hold 300Lbs (150Kg) and having braught and used this hammock i can say i've will definiatly be sleeping in the trees alot on trips from now on. Sorely tempted by the idea of the 2m version over my 1.5m but would the benifits be that great?

    Will have to think about this

    Stuart

    PS - i'm not affiliated with these hammocks or the group buy, just giving feedback on my hammock for anyone 'on the fence'

    8 here so far and 11 on BCUK

    Stuart, I have never used the smaller hammock so can't tell you if there is any benefit. The reason I go for the bigger ones is that they are almost exactly the same size Eco System used and sold by Ray Mears and I tried one of those and liked it but was not as keen on the price

    Hi John
    if you have another I will have one, making it two in total. Trouble is the more people who see, or sleep in a hammock the more they want one!!

    Looks like this is going to be another week or so. The hammock supplier has a new bank account and the bank, in there wisdom, have rejected my payment. So we now need to wait for the money to come back to me so I can send it again

    I'll let you know when there is more news.

    I'm going offshore today for a couple of weeks so please don't worry when you don't get a response from me regarding payment. I'll sort it out as soon as I get back on dry land, if thats OK with you.

    Not a problem Ian.

    I have just heard from the hammock supplier and because I have placed a few orders before he is just going to send the hammocks anyway and we will sort out the money when it turns up either back here or with him.

    I cant figure out how i pay using pay pal for something i have not bid on, can you give me some pointers?

    Also, AndyM, you make me feel guilty now, I ordered two hammocks, if you are that desperate you can have one, as I can wait until the next group buy, not likely to be using them before next summer anyhow.

    Go to www.PayPal.co.uk and log into your account. Then click on "Send Money" fill in my email address and the amount. Put the details in the notes bog and you are done.
