    New Thunderbird - Order 907

    My Thunderbird arrived in the mail today. I was working from home, so I took a little break to set it up real quick in the backyard and snap some pictures. More testing to follow, when I actually have time to set it up properly and sleep in it.

    Specs:

    Thunderbird # 907
    Length: 11'
    Single Layer, 1.8oz Charcoal Grey Nylon Taffeta
    Whoopie Sling Suspension
    Overcover: 1.1oz Black
    Weight: 31.4oz, with everything it comes with, in the stuff sack

    Really liking the Charcoal Grey fabric. It looks great, and seems to lay pretty nice - firm, but not rock hard. Planning on swapping out the stock suspension for continuous loops and whoopie hooks once I have some time. Then I'll get it set up, and spend a few hours in it. In the meantime, pics to follow in the next post.

    In the stuff sack:



    And a couple pictures of the end, for color comparison (different lighting):

    I was technically goofing off while I should have been working, so I didn't take the time to set up the over cover and take pictures of that too. That'll be on the next round, once I swap the suspension.

    Great looking setup. Congrats on the new gear! Those DreamHammocks are really nice. I love my WB BBXLC - especially the footbox. I really covet that dual bug net overcover in the same setup piece that some of the DreamHammocks have going on, though.
