    3 Minutes

    Received new Warbonnet in mail today and I wanted to see how long it took to hang.

    I did a great deal of research on hammocks the past month, and decided the Warbonnet Black Bird was the best choice for me. I've watched all the videos (thank you Shug) online but have never hung any hammock before today. So while my brother timed me from start to hang it took only 3 minutes. Amazing for never having done it before and only watching Brandon's setup video.

    After sitting and laying in hammock I did make a couple of adjustments, but this will come with experience. Looking forward to being on the trail and being able to hang only minutes after a long hard day.

    I've attached some photos.

    Congratulations on your purchase.

    Looks like that bug net will come in handy to slow down those pesky golf balls!

    oh man definitely flatline. Palm trees and hammock = If I had that going on I would do anything in my power to work and live from my hammock.

    I'll have to wake up before dawn since the netting won't stop a golf ball. Palm trees nice but give me a pine forest with a soft bed of needles anytime. One note about my first hang... even with temps in the mid 80's I noticed the cooling breeze on my back.

    Welcome Ironman, looks like a good rig! You should be good for the night down there with a blanket on bottom for now.

    Hopefully my Warbonnet will be not to far away. I've ordered a blackbird, Superfly and UQ about 5 days ago, has not been sent yet. Want to use the gear on a upcoming 1 week hike.
