Thank you RE: OR - BIAS Weight Weenie Micro Hammock - Derek Hansen
- PLEASE READ THIS EMAIL IN FULL. IT IS MOST IMPORTANT!
Thanks for your Owner's Review. It has been added to the Owner Review Queue and will be picked up by an Edit Moderator soon. If you are new to BackpackGearTest.org, welcome to the community! The Editors will work with you, within their own time constraints, to get your first two Owner Reviews approved and upload in a timely manner. Do not worry if nothing happens with it for several days. All our Editors are volunteers and your report will be subject to an official edit within fourteen days. If you have not had a response from an Edit Moderator via the Yahoo Groups list within this timeframe, please let me know directly at jdeben(at)hotmail.com
To assist in this process, if this is your first Owner Review we ask that you post only ONE Owner Review for edit at a time. Our experience is that it is more efficient for both the Editors and
yourself, if you post your first review, have it edited, approved and uploaded before you post your second and subsequent reviews.
Once your first two Owner Reviews have been approved and you have submitted your Tester Agreement you will be eligible to start applying for Tests. If you'd like more assistance or guidance with the process you can request a mentor by sending an email to Jenn K., the mentor coordinator, at mentor (at) backpackgeartest.org.
You may receive edits or comments from other members of the group. These edits and comments, while not official, should be considered carefully, and if you find them substantial, revise and re-post your review. Incorporating member edits and re-submitting to the list
will usually result in a better review, as well as making things easier for the official Editor. Please put REVISED in the subject line of your re-submitted review if you take this route or make any
changes to your review BEFORE the review has been taken by an Edit Moderator.
Additionally, it is important for you to monitor the Yahoo Groups list to keep track of the progress of your Owner Review. Once an Editor has taken your OR and made the necessary edits they will post their comments to the list with EDIT in the subject line. Once you have incorporated these edits into your review please use REPOST in the subject line. When your OR has been approved by the Editor they will use APPROVED in the subject line.
If you'd like to keep track of the progress of your OR while it's in the edit queue, the entire Owner Review Queue is posted to this yahoo group list on either Thursdays or Fridays.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask via the list or contact me directly.

- Hi Derek,
OK, let's get another one here while I can sneak a few minutes. There are a lot of edits that a quick spell check would have caught.
Once corrected you may place it at:
Reviews > Shelters > Hammocks > BIAS Hammock Gear Weight Weenie Micro
See you down the trail,
EDIT: you need a caption under the pinned photo to the right of your review acknowledging BIAS. (But as their weight is wrong, why use it? Or was the weight from the mod?)
***and allowing for a better, flatter, diagonal lay.
Edit: I believe a diagonal "lie" is the proper word.
***The BIAS Weight Weenie Micro is the lightest hammock in their collection at only 6 oz (170 g), although the weight increases when you add some of the modifications
EDIT: change the "when you" to "if I choose to"
*** I made sure to sleep without any sharp objects in my pockets or with clothing that has sharp or protubing elements
(e.g., snaps, zippers, etc.). I never had any rips, snags, or tears, but I did have a few loose threads on the end channels that worried me slightly.
*** As I would lay in this hammock I often mused about finding a formula
EDIT: I am sure this one is "lie" (You lay the blanket on the ground, then you lie on the blanket.)
*** I think there is some kind of "golden ratio" for hammock length to width, but unfortuantely I fell asleep too quickly
*** The asymmestric lay is somewhat narrower with the Micro than some other hammocks, if they are pitched correctly.
Thanks for taking the time to edit my reports! I'll have a few more to post soon. And sorry for the simple errors on the BIAS review -- it was horribly sloppy of me to miss the spelling errors. I made all the edits, uploaded the files, and removed the test copies.
See you soon,
