Finally got a chance to string my XLC up in my backyard between proper trees and give it a try. I had strung it up in the basement, but it's just not the same. Anyway, I am so impressed with this new hammock! This is my fourth hammock from Warbonnet, and I have found my "keeper". I always liked my regular Blackbirds, and my RidgeRunner was straight up awesome...but this one takes the cake hands down. It's everything I wanted out of the original Blackbirds I had. Me being 6'-5" tall, the extra length really makes a difference in the lay. The more open feeling with the way he uses netting on the new XLC really opens it up for better views, moreso than i expected. I can not wait to get back on the trail and in the piney woods with this new hammock!!
Thanks again Brandon!
