HappyCamper-took it down just to weight for you
On the Rapala 0.71 kg
On the postal digital 25 ounces.....
So if you think in pounds it is 1.56 pounds.
And I've got some economic impressions.
Poof is studying hammocks to purchase and has seen most of mine, so we crunched some numbers over a bite of bread.
Once we'd hashed the dollars a bit it suddenly hit me that the DangerBird is SERIOUS competition for the others out there. Why?
That listed weight is double bottom, integral bug net, integral over cover, bishop bag and whoopies....for this ingenuity ~and who can deny the integration of the zippers of the netting and over cover is brilliant~ and the included features it is huge dollars lower than the competition--how so you might ask; well say you have a WB Blackbird and want to add an over over. The only one I know of off the shelf is AHE's BBO and that's $75 (I've got one, one of AHE's great gifts to the hammock world and used it at the Ocala hang to get 10F more warmth). What's a current price on whoopies? and tree huggers (also included with the DangerBird)? Probably around $30 as a guess. So your already getting the comfort of a BlackBird but with 100 dollars of accoutrements thrown in.
What do you loose compared to the BlackBird? The shelf and footbox all I've noticed so far; but the DangerBird includes the ridgeline storage bag which offsets some of the lost shelf....but under the hoods are the bags that stow the over cover and bug net. You can get small items there too if needed (think stuffable items like down hood, down gloves).
Now my biggest fear just looking at pics of the Dangerbird prior to ordering was that it looked like a Hennessey--and me thinking it would lay like one. I sleep in a HH Backpacker A-sym kinda often and have years of Hennessey use-my favorite lay of all that I've tried over the years is the BlackBird; so I was most pleasantly surprised to find the DangerBird very similar TO ME in the Blackbird lay.
But you say there is no footbox with the Dangerbird.....true but this is a wide hammock, no footbox is needed.
One more thought-COLOR. Go to PapaSmurf's site and look at the color options. I went with coyote body and green hoods for the muted look and it's a great color scheme for me, but the choices are huge.
Forgot something. I said I took it down to weigh it....but of course while it was up I went through the various combos of netting up/down, over cover up/down and realized when both covers were stowed that this hammock is peapod capable. I'd set it up with the Leighlo 5-50 (Leigh's 0F rated UQ) which is also coyote and green-almost a perfect match!
I have to go back in my cage tonight but will work on a vid soon.
