    Fireinmybones: Bonefire Video: Mini Review

    This review is long overdue and Fireinmybones has made an excellent hammock that meets all my needs.


    Here is the material list.

    Warbonnet 1.1 DBL Traveler
    9 feet- #3 one way non seperatong zipper
    1-#3 double slider
    3 yards of Nanoseeum
    3 yards of Coyote momentum (M50) from Thru Hiker
    9oz of 850 downtek WR down.
    ZigIT (ridgelie).

    I have spent about 35 full nights in the backyard and 4 backpacking nights with this hammock. The length being 9.5x62 inches has been perfect. The whipped ends greatly reduce the calf ridge. The undgerquilt fits exactly my 5'9 frame with no compression of the down. The only issue is the foot area being less down. I have used this from 50deg nights to about 29 degrees. The total weight is 27.3 ounces with suspension.

    This was about a month long project but it was well worth the wait. I knew going into this it would be a project, and his project is superb quality and craftmanship. For the few who have seen one of these in person it is a work of art.

    Thank you Fireinmybones for the superb product.

    I've had some people ask. This is a combined hammock and underquilt. The outer layer of 1.1 ripstop is the inner quilt shell of the under quilt.i weight right at 210lbs.

    I think you should do it over, with a pretty girl laying in it. Ha.
    Good job my friend, and you are correct, this is a fine piece of workmanship by FIMB.
    If you prepare for failure you will probably succeed.
