Thread: Blackbird XLC

  1. #31
    Hi guys,

    Thanks for the compliments. I've been wanting to do an 11-footer for a long time. I'm hoping to have these up on the website by then end of the week, hopefully sooner.

    To answer a few questions, there is no vent hole, you've just got the breathability of the fabric itself plus partially opening the zipper when needed. We're just using matching hammock fabric for the topcover, both our 1.1 and 1.7 (and the 1.9 multicam) are non-calendared with dwr only for max breathability.

    We will offer this in a 10' version, but that may take a few more weeks to get to that. Anybody interested in the shorter 10' version should contact me via email and i'll start a list.

    Someone was asking about the weight of the fabric. The hammock in the video is a single layer of 1.7 oz fabric. Just about all options will be avail with the possible exception of the single 1.1

    The superfly will work just fine, the cloudburst would work well also. Havent tried it with the mj yet, but there should be about 10" or so of overlap at each end, but it is a hex so noticeably less coverage at the ends compared to the above 2 mentioned tarps. i may come out with a longer hex down the road.

    Great Idea! I think that extra 1' will take care of the calf issues that I had with the BB. I like how you opened up the view too.

    I didn't see it mentioned & I couldn't tell from the video, is there still a shelf on the right?

    You're going to make this in a Multicam? And, have you ever considered putting a few gross grain loops along each side to stabilize UQ use?

    Nicely done!!

    Nicely done, Brandon. Looks good, and I love the ability to convert. Opens up the ability to use for all seasons. I don't think I'll give up my Traveler yet, but I can't wait to get my hands on an BB XLC.......

    I've always thought these should be on more hammocks, including BBs. Light, easy to ignore if you don't use them but incredibly useful. I actually use the netting tie out on my BB to help stabilize my Incubator UQ at the foot area.

    wow. I was all decided until I saw this video!

    I wondered why to many people have so many hammocks, but
    this is quite versatile.

    Definitely going to go with a BB now. (XLC)
