I have a blackbird, 2 traveler's and an eno double. I almost always use my traveler b/c bugs arent a problem. So I have some good news for you, I am a member of the arizona backpacking club and it just so happens that 8 of us are hiking west fork of oak creek this weekend. Some of the group are heading up and camping around the trailhead fri night, including my friend Jason. I think he is bringing his traveler, but I can ask him to bring his blackbird as well to let you try it out. Let me know if you want to meet up with them and I will put you in contact with Jason.
