    Thanks for the kind word guys. Fin is owed a ton of the credit on the BBO's design, we just worked to make it a bit AHE

    Crawldaddy, just cut your BBO and will be using the high speed precision stabbing device to force thread into the fibers of fabric this afternoon. We should have it ready in the next couple day.

    Hope I'm not stepping on toes.

    I know this is the Warbonnet section, and that AHE has a great product, but Hennessey has an overcover for $35 that is almost half the weight of the BBO. It even has a hole to allow for venting (avoid condensation). I haven't used mine with my WBBB yet, though I carry it along in case, but as it is Asym in shape I don't see how it wouldn't fit.

    If I lived in a dry cold climate and had more money, I would probably switch to the BBO, but for the low cost and ultra low weight, I'm sticking with my HH OC for now.

    Looking at the photo on the HH site, I don't see any way this would work with the WBBB.

    The WBBB requires a "kite" shape cover, not an asym at all. I strongly suggest you try it out in the backyard before you are counting on it on a cold night.
