We use Camp Nano carabiners for our hammocks, they have... in our opinion, an unmatched strength to weight ratio. They however are not cheap. Just 2 carabiners cost near the same as the materials for an entire Cinch Buckle Suspension.
Hemlock Mountain Outdoors is a very small business... 1 person to be exact. CoyotePacks take the longest of any current product to make. While I would love to have a bunch in stock (although I am working towards that) I prioritize current orders over stock at hand. Keep an eye on our Ready to Ship page for in stock hammocks.
Simply, size. WestRim 9 is designed as a day hammock. 9 feet long and approximately 58' wide. Not to say you couldn't camp in one if that was the size you were looking for. The WestRim 11 is, you guessed it, 11 feet long and approximately 74" wide and is available with an optional ridgeline. Neither has an attached bug net but can be used with our cocoon style bugnet.
Our 3/4 position pocket on the WestRim Hammocks is placed about 3/4 of the way to one end of the hammock body. This allows for easy access to the pocket while laying in the hammock, when traditional "center positioned" may be just too far away and keeps the pocket out of the way while sitting in the hammock with your legs out one side when traditional "center positioned" pockets wind up either right between your legs or right behind your head.
The 3/4 position pocket is not used as the stuff sack, the WestRim Hammocks use a ridgeline mounted, slotted stuff sack.
When Hemlock Mountain Outdoors launched our netless hammocks went by different names depending on length - ThruHiker, BackPacker & BaseCamp. They were basic hammocks with no suspension and an attached stuff sack/pocket. I was contemplating either making a change to the design or just dropping them all together. While on an overnight backpacking trip to the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania (Pine Creek Gorge) one of my friends I was hiking with asked about a day hammock. While hiking I started to visualize the layout of a new netless hammock which became the WestRim Series.... the trail we were hiking? The West Rim Trail, of course!
Size: RedTail Hammocks are 10 feet long and approximately 58" wide. CoyotePacks are 11'x~74"
Net: RedTail Hammocks netting unzips on both sides, but not all the way around, and designed to stow away on the ridgeline. CoyotePacks netting unzips all the way to one end at tuck up into the end cap.
Weights: RedTail Hammocks are designed to be lighter and come in a standard 300lb limit version and a 200lb limit UL version. CoyotePacks come in a 300lb standard version and a 400lb X version.
Cost: The standard RedTail was designed with price in mind, coming in at under $100 for a full netted camping hammock with an included suspension. The RedTail UL, due to the cost of the lighter materials unfortunately carries a higher price tag.
Both the MidZip and EdgeZip pouches come in both Canvas and UL versions. The Canvas pouches are obviously made of canvas both inside and out. The UL versions are made with 1.6oz HyperD ripstop nylon, but are the same dimensions and use the same build technique as their canvas counterparts.
DragonSnares are simply water bottle holders. Designed to let gravity do the work, simply place the loop around the neck of a water bottle and attach the clip to your backpack, belt loop, hammock ridgeline or whatever is nearby.
I got the idea for these water bottle holders while out on a backpacking trip in the Catskills. A friend of mine was using a homemade tether to hold his water bottle while we were out on a side hike away from camp. When I got home I started messing with different cordage, connectors and knots until I came up with the current design. I asked him if he would mind me using this concept, he did not as he had seen other people do similar things. My friend's nickname? Dragon.
The PackHanger 2 is the newly updated version. The original (PackHanger 1) was very similar in design, but was made of a non weight rated nylon webbing. Designed primarily as an easy way to keep your backpack off the ground by simply attaching it around a tree like a belt and using a carabiner or hook of your choosing to hang your pack on it's built in loop.
The PackHanger 2 builds on that primary design by now using the same webbing our tree straps are made from and using the same box stitching as the tree straps. This gives it enough strength to also be used as an emergency tree strap for your hammock, should one break or get lost on the trail (or in my case left at home once).
Not everyone likes to use carabiners for their hammock gear. Plus the carabiners I use are great, but a bit pricey to include in an accessory. Most people have hooks or carabines they would rather use, and usually wind up carrying spares already and just use one of those.
No, we no longer sell T-Shirts through Amazon or any other online stores, only through HemlockMountainOutdoors.com
As of November 2018, we pulled our T-Shirts from Amazon and incorporated them into our website, fulfilled by a different vendor. I am aware that a few of our designs we offered through Amazon have been "borrowed" by other vendors. As we find them we notify them that they need to remove any merchandise including our logo.
In short, any shirts sold with the HMO logo that aren't available from this site and not legitimate.
