    Ok Hanger, what hammock should i go with...

    Ok, i am by no means a small fella, 6 foot tall and about 275 lbs (But still getting smaller). I was thinking of the Warbonnet Blackbird. I have read alot of good reviews about them, but what do you guys think...

    It will do you right. Many think so. But look around on the Vendors Threads on here and see what the haps are.

    I enjoy both my BB's and my Switchback hammocks. Can't go wrong there!

    I love my HH Explorer Ultralite but....had Warbonnet been around when I bought it I probably would have bought one of those instead. Over the years I've swapped out the suspension, added a zipper, and got a better/bigger tarp. So, I've spent some substantial funds to "upgrade" my HH into what the Warbonnet already has. I don't think you can go wrong with any of them though.

    Weight capacity, weight of hammock, type of suspension, netting or no netting, price, etc. There are lots of questions. Sounds like you need to get to a hang in your area and try out a bunch of different setups.

    Good luck

    WBBB, HH Explorers (the expedition series might be a tad on the small side for you) or even a DIY all have pluses and minuses. Even bridge hammocks are highly recommended, although I've never used one personally. Take a good look at what is out there and decide what features will suit you best and go for it! Can't go wrong with any of them, really.
