    I own original BB's, an XLC and an Eldorado. I prefer the original BB. Between the XLC and Eldorado I prefer the Eldorado. I really like the shelf in the XLC and the BB as it allows me to store alot of gear in it.
    I am still 18 but with 50 years of experience !

    Can you get an Eldorado in an 11' hammock? If so 55 bucks for a shelf is steep. If the Eldorado is only a 10' hammock like the original was.
    Then spend the extra 55 bucks. Not for the shelf but for calf ridge relief.
    If you look at my avatar I am in a 10' original BB so I know a lot about 10' WB hammock calf ridge issues.

    Yes, in fact the Eldorado and XLC are the same hammock body. The differences are the zip on netting and/or top cover. The Eldorado netting does not have shelf, and is meant to save a little bit of weight. All of the Eldorado and XLC zip on netting and covers are interchangeable.

    I dunno on that one. Both the XLC and the Eldorado are 11' x 62".
