    Warbonnets wants

    I have been the proud owner of a Blackbird for a while now.

    This is a hypothetical question, sort of.

    If you could change or would want something added to the blackbird to make it better what would it be?

    The only thing I'd add to the blackbird would be a better way to secure the pad. Even with the double layer, the dang thing is so HUGE inside that the pad can move around a bit.

    More color options, especially black! Blackbird hammocks should be available in black IMHO. ;p

    Bigger triangle rings on the straps to make it easier to loosen.

    Some way to hang back the netting when you don't need the bug net without having to get out of the hammock.

    We got a foot box, would a head box make it even more comfortable? hehehe

    Little pieces of fabric tied on the zippers for easier pulling. I know this is an easy thing for everyone to do , but i'm just trying to help. 8)

    Yes I agree with the big space for the pad with the double layer. I have found that you can not just slide the pad in and leave it. There is a little aligning to do but it is not a real big problem. The way it is sewn together it is just a second layer sewn on top of another layer and it goes all the way up the sides of the hammock until it meets the netting on both sides. These leaves a lot of space in between layers. It would be nice to set it up so that it does not go all the way up the sides but I can not think of a better way so I have no suggestions.

    Due to a right shoulder problem I am only able to lay on my left side, so my feet extend to the left. If the foot "pocket" was available on the opposite side, I'd be interested in one, but right now, without that, there isn't a great advantage over the Speer I already have.

    you can order the BBwith the footbox on the left side. I did and when you order you just say in your email that you would like a lefty.

    I know Brandon has offered to someone online here to do a reverse BB.
