    could use some advice on hanging my hammock

    I'm new to hammock camping and I'm going to get the warbonnet blackbird 1.7 double layer with the webbing straps option. I don't know what system of hanging would be best for this hammock and any help would be great, I also plan on ordering 2 climbing carabiners with it.

    could use some advice on hanging my hammock

    Have you watched the videos on the warbonnet site? They are a great place to start. But I'm a nutshell. Wrap the end of the strap around the tree 15ish foot apart, clip it to its self. Hang the foot about a foot higher than the head. Tighten the suspension until the ridge line is taught but not real tight.

    U should watch shug's videos if you have not yet, there is also tons of info on here that you can read until your hearts content. Also this link is a good source of info, but as I am finding out there is no replacement for practice

    Pretty much what dammfast said.

    I too have a WBBB 1.7 and hang it the same way.
