I don't use DD, but I have essentially the same hammock 10th Wonder Hornet which I like a lot. The nearly identical, and from what I've heard, the quality is similar as well. There are some stitches that are wonky and some are a little frayed, but only in places that it doesn't make much difference. I actualy use the hammock sleeve made by DD which fits my Hornet like a glove. It's definitely not a lightweight hammock, but if you're planning on carrying it on the bike, I think it's a good deal. I would plan on swapping out the suspension they send with the hammock though. I use polyester webbing and climber's descending rings attached with a loop of amsteel. Many prefer tree straps and whoopie slings. I wish I had some pictures, but it was completely under my tarp at the last rally...not much help...
