    Hi all ,
    yes it's me again with another DD group buy. Nick at dd has said we can have the same
    deal that we had last time..which was-

    Less than 15 items...
    £3 off camping....£4 off travel....£2 off tarps

    More than 15 items
    £4 off camping....£5 off travel....£3 off tarps

    More than 25 extra £1 off.
    And again at 45 items.


    Also we have netted hammocks this time as well...this bits from Nick-

    The netted hammock is £11 including postage. If bought together with another hammock the price would be £7. It comes with 10m of our older (not as strong) webbing and a stuff sack. We don't recommend this hammock for sleeping in, it can be used below your sleeping hammock (or above, if you wish, when using the Camping hammock) to store gear in - keeping it dry and within easy reach. Can also double as a fishing net! Weight is just under 500g including 10m of webbing. Colour is emerald green (not quite as dark as our other hammock).

    Back to me.
    There is also a light weight tarp in the pipeline that isn't ready yet but might be before the end of this gb..I will let you know if and when this is available and how much.

    Heres DD's web site to have a look. www.ddhammocks.com

    i'm aiming to have this group buy finished for early July .ready for this years bush moot

    and o'yes... apart from this group buy i have nothing to do with dd hammocks etc,etc

    I'd be interested in the light weight tarp (will it be 3x3 or 3x2 or both?) if it's available before the end!

    Hi Sandbag,

    You must be mental to go through this again but good on ya!

    I've posted a heads up on the Song of the Paddle forum as some of the guys over there may be interested, hopefully that may get your numbers up a wee bit.

    Cheers,

    Alan

    Sandbag, I got a replacement tarp 2 delivered this morning and was told it is the lightweight new one, it weighs in at 1.6k instead of 1.9k, same size (3x3) just a bit thinner. If you want to have a look I'm only just down the road at Towcester.
    I would like to add I am over the moon with DD's after sales, I had a problem with stitching on my tarp 2 and it was very quickly sorted, very pro company. No I don't work for them, just a happy customer!

    The more say yes, the cheaper it is. For a hammock / tarp combo prob £6-10 discount.

    I meant of the new lightweight tarp itself, but actually reading his first post again he says he'll updated when he gets the prices, so I doubt he has yet :p

    o'yes if you are buying more than 1 item you can save even more. because of the savings in postage by posting 2 items together.it works out to £2 of the price for 2 items
