    HC! I would have picked this up as a spare if I had seen it first! I love almost everything about my BMB!

    Why wasn't it for you?

    I'll keep you in mind if the deal falls through.

    The BMB is just to narrow in the shoulders. At home I tend to sleep on my side and stomach, but in a hammock I spend a lot of time on my back. The BMB is just too tight on the sides when on my back. I also like to stretch my legs out to the sides when in a hammock and I just cant do that in the BMB. Don't get me wrong, it's a very comfortable hammock, but I just feel more comfortable in a traditional design hammock.

    I still have a mostly complete DIY bridge based on Grizz's design sitting at home. Maybe I will get it finished up.

    I'm gonna pick up a Warbonnet Blackbird and try it out.

    I would love to get a Warbonnet, but my budget won't allow it right at the moment. The BMB is a known commodity for me, so it wouldn't be as much of a stretch to purchase, but with a tight budget, splurging on the unknown for me is out of the question. Although, I have seen Warbonnet's work in person, and it is top-knotch. I'm sure the Blackbird is even better than the El Dorado. Discretionary income is just very tight at this time.

    Now I know why you asked about my air mattress post in one of the BMB threads. I wish you would have PM'ed me about the air mattress - I would have sent it to you to see if it resolved your issue with the 'squeeze'. A half inflated air mat does make a difference in the squeeze. It does take getting used to with the legs, as well. I routinely hang part of my legs or my feet over the edge of my top-loaders when I'm laying in them - you definitely can't do that in a BMB. It is a HCU, or "hanging containment unit". But it is comfy! A little wider would be nice, but I don't know how you deal with wider spreader bars and a tarp.

    Anyway, we can debate the pros and cons of a BMB or a Blackbird, etc. in other threads. Let me know if the deal falls through, and I'll see if I can't move some numbers around in the checkbook.

    When I saw the original post, before there were any replies, I was really tempted by this BMB, but I've got a warbonnet ordered and am anxiously awaiting it. This'll be my first "real" hammock, so I won't have much to compare it against, but the glowing reviews I've read so far have me convinced. I would like to try a couple of designs, but the budget just doesn't allow for that. Of course, once I've got mine, I want to convince my girlfriend to give hammocking a try, so maybe she'll want a different design.... hmmm.....
