    Introducing the new 2018 Warbonnet Eldorado

    So it's sort of a re-introduction really. Many of you may not know, but the original Eldorado actually pre-dates the original Blackbird. We have decided to re-introduce it with a few updates.

    We're hoping to have the order page up tomorrow. But as far as specs go, It shaves about 1/4 pound off the weight of the comparable XLC. Prices are still being ironed out but the single layer with bugnet and continuous loops has been set at $125.

    It doesn't say in the video, but the body is 11' if anybody is wondering that.

    That looks pretty sweet! So it's basically a BBXLC without the shelf, correct?

    Absolutely, It basically gets you into the XLC modular system at a lower price point. We made it for people either looking to save weight or for new hangers who are overwhelmed with needing to buy a hammock, UQ, and tarp all at once, but still want a modular hammock that can be added onto later.

    Thatís actually not bad. I tried the XLC and one of my primary concerns was I didnít like how it made it awkward to exit from that side.

    That is a simple, but kind of brilliant way to get two uses out of a stuff sack. The ridgeline organizer looks super easy to use. Well done.

    Hank Scorpio: Hammocks? My goodness, what an idea. Why didn't I think of that? Hammocks!

    The obvious question is, can just the net be ordered to retrofit an XLC and will there be an equivalent winter cover?

    Hoping to have the specs up tomorrow.

    We do plan on selling the XLC and Eldorado nets as separate items now as well, and if people seem to want an Eldorado style topcover then we'd probably offer those as well.

    Watching that video just feels like breathing rarefied air. What a capture of hammock lore!

    The El Dorado looks like a great one.
