I own a BB. I thought I should get the best gathered end hammock available as a comparisson test for the bridge hammocks that I make. Overall comfort and flatness are primarily what I am comparing. Plus I like supporting innovative cottage industries- like Warbonnet.
I keep the BB in reserve for hiking friends, in case they want to hang, but may not like my bridge hammocks as much. Since purchasing it, I have also made a bridge for big heavy guys. Previously I would not have been able to offer a choice of hammocks to my double weight friend. This Spring I will offer him his choice; I am curious as to what kind of hammock a person of that body type would prefer.
So far the BB has not seen a night outdoors
but I am still glad that I have it- (even though I clearly prefer a bridge hammock personally). As someone else mentioned "I thought they would cost more". Yes, they are currently a bargain- not to be passed up!
