    a few questions on the blackbird

    Hello all
    ive got a couple questions about the blackbird if someone could help me out here..
    im thinking about ordering one for my brother .. hes about #255 lbs 6ft 5in or so .. so i was looking at the double layer 1.7 ..
    now does this mean when it says double layer that there is a pocket on the bottom of the hammock ?,that can be used for a sleep pad? also before i email brandon . any ideas what i MAY expect for turn around on my order? i know christmas is comeing soon .so he might be pretty busy..
    thanks all

    Yes, the double layer is ideal for slipping in a pad.
    No idea what the wait time is these days, but it's usually around two weeks from what I've seen.
    Trust nobody!

    Be forewarned - I ordered a DL 1.1 recently and it was in my hands in just under 1 week! Just wanted to warn you so you don't face the temptation to open your brother's hammock a week sooner than you had expected because the temptation might just get the best of you if you're not prepared...

    I don't know if turnaround on a DL 1.7 is longer.

    I see Brandon didn't tell anyone, but because he's going interational, he will sent mine first to the Netherlands

    It becomes 4 or 5 weeks for you *grin* Just kidding he!

    Hope mine will get thru customs soon...

    turnaround times are getting shorter, they were a few weeks for some folks because i was stuck waiting on the 1.7 fabric, which i have now. hopefully lead times will be down to a couple days on everything really soon. currently i have 1.1 blackbirds and 3 season yeti's and some tarps in stock. 1.7 hammocks will be in stock soon, but are currently about a week or so wait on those while i finish getting caught up.
