    I am not really a side sleeper but I go there for short moments and the BB is VERY good on the side.

    Great review Shug !
    I'm regretting my choice to skip the straps.
    Those triangle buckles looks great, gonna get some.

    But what makes me most happy ,
    is that it works out for evan if you are a lefty.

    Really , really good quality of the video *clap,clap*

    PS. Be careful,l so you don't become the official loggo of the warbonnet

    I have a dumb question. I sleep on my right side. It appears that one needs to sleep on their left side in the Blackbird in order to see outside of the bug netting...or, am I imagining things? Inquiring minds...

    Are you a lefty? I was concerned about that but it works just as well.

    The netting is lower if you face to the left but it is rather high up due to the design. I roll with my face to the right from time to time and it is me looking into ripstop but the BB is so roomy it isn't a problem

    Maybe you could try to sleep with your head at the foot end in the diagonal where you head is not in the foot box. Some one will have to try that and report back to us.
