Okay just to let you all know I did lower 20's and high teens in the blackbird and all I had was a cheap pad that I use in my Clark and a 30 something bag and was wearing Polypro underwear and and fleece stocking cap for two nights this weekend one night of rain and the other night of high wind. Had the super fly wide open on both ends and on both night I had to come out of bag to cool off. both morning's I woke up and started my hot tea from the hammock what a treat to watch the sun come up out of the end of hammock and drink not 1 not 2 but 3 cups of hot tea that was heated up by my soda can alcy stove. Along with two pop tarts ( Sorry I had REAL POPTARTS SHUG ) but all in all was a great weekend. I sat and listened to the OWL's that last morning and with them making such a ruckus the turkeys where making more noise. Put my Pistol,IPOD,JEANS,and PEE Bottle in the shelf and it all worked out great.
(Side note) I do miss the Pockets on the Clark a Bunch but the shelf held my clothing fine along with everything else.
that is it for now.
Brandon thanks for such a nice product anyone who is second guessing a Blackbird make no mistake you will do just fine in this hammock.
