Had to be done, just pulled the trigger on a new Dangerbird. Excited to see this new hammock. And now...the dreaded wait
That is the most versatile hammock I've seen. It can morph into whatever you need to match the conditions. Maybe Papa Smurf should have called it the Chameleon!

I was about to pull the trigger on a WBBB Lefty, but the dangerbird has definitely got me reconsidering....

For those thinking about a DangerB let me share my leaking tarp story.
This past weekend Poof and I camped in the Smokies.
I set up an old venerable tarp that I've used for a long time....the rains came into camp about 10 minutes after setting up.
We cooked under my tarp (the larger one) and I had my hammock pulled over to the side out of the way tied off to the pole (pole mod)...not long after eating and I was in the hammock for the night--almost 10 glorious hours of rest.
When we were cooking breakfast I was sitting in the hammock and eventually noticed the large and growing drip spot just to my right. I looked up and saw a drip forming then dropping. I can only guess that it had been doing this all night since it rained continuously. The spot on the hammock is where my right chest would have been.
I never knew it, slept warm and dry under an Nunatak Ghost.
It was 'dogwood winter' and I had used the over cover. My best guess is that the momentum either deflectd the drops or absorved/evaporated them-most likely deflecting.
So what could have been a miserable wake up call around 0200-0300 when the TQ got saturated was avoided thanks to PapaSmurf.
Since then I asked PapaSmurf just how waterproof Momentum is, well it's not, but fairly water resistant; so I wouldn't go without a tarp but it did make a huge difference on this hike.
Congrats! I have yet to have a chance to use mine and I've only been able to hang it in the basement. Superb workmanship I'll say. Can't wait to sleep in it.
I'm up to 20 hours of sleep time in a DangerBird-you will NOT be dissapointed.
