    Thumbs up Xlc...do it!

    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!

    I can take a few pics if people really want them, but I didn't this time because I figured enough have been posted. I was enjoying laying in it too much to bother with the camera

    This thing really is a winner though, what a great hammock. My fiancee' came out and saw me in it and promptly said "looks like you really like this one". I told her I definitely found everything I was looking for in a backpacking hammock. Just a perfect blend of all options

    After spending some more time in it again this afternoon, I'm even happier with it! It's so much more comfortable than the regular Blackbird I had, and I'm really loving the more open feeling from the interior...views!

    Yukon,

    Great pics. I'm glad you like your new baby!

    Do you have any knee hyper-extension? Or does the length + footbox "drop" dot away with it?

    Thanks much.
