    Actual weight of Blackbird and suspension?

    I'm wondering if the weights listed on the Warbonnet website are accurate, and do they include all of the components of the suspension (whoops, tree-huggers...) I'm considering the 1.1 blackbird, but can't justify it unless the total weight is really below my current set-up (Hennessy Hyperlite w/whoopies.)

    In the past, the weight listed on the website was consistently more than what my scales showed. But I just weighed my WB BB 1.1oz DL with webbing, and it only differs by 3g (0.1oz) from what the specs say now. The weight listed seems to be without the stuff sack, which adds another 20g (0.7oz). You will also need to factor in biners or Dutch Buckles. Other than that, the hammock is complete.

    I forgot: if you want to use the tie-outs, you might want to add 2 stakes as well. However, lots of people just tie off to roots, twigs or whatever they find at the campsite.

    I have a DL 1.1 XLC Blackbird. Brandon lists the weight at 32 oz. and it actually weighs 32.28 oz. (915g). He lists the Superfly tarp w/ stuff sack at 19 oz. and it actually weighs 19.45 oz. (552g). I'd say the weights he has listed are fairly accurate.
