    Smile Hammock newbie living in France

    Hello!

    After a lot of hesitation (spanning about two years), I've decided to purchase a hammock. My primary motivation is to alleviate my back pain, and the horrible nights I have sleeping on closed cell foam (or even inflatable) mattresses.

    For a long time I looked at Hennessy Hammocks thinking that they were pretty much the only ones around. I don't know why - they must have good marketing.

    Anyway, since I decided to plop down quite a bit of saved money, I went and did more research, and settled on buying a Warbonnet Blackbird (with an Edge tarp).

    My other shelters are the Hilleberg Akto, the GoLite Shangri-La 1, and a pretty cool tarp from Alpkit (lots of attachment points throughout the tarp, allowing for many configurations). But, at the end of the day (or rather in the morning) I always wake up feeling like I've been hit by a train. So, here's hoping the Blackbird will solve these problems

    Now I can't wait for it to arrive...!

    Welcome to the addicting world of hammocks! It sounds like you've learned the lesson the hard way: a bad night in the hammock is better than a good night on the ground!
    Chase your dreams without fear or hesitation!

    Welcome from Canada! Most people I see that complain of back pain are thankful for their hammocks. Hope you feel the same!
