    AHE BBO for BB

    I just placed an order for a bear burrito oven cover for a WBBB. Does anyone have any user experience or advice for it ?

    I don't have my WBBB any more, but I used an AHE BBO with it a couple of times. Very nice way to kill the breeze and bump the interior temp a bit. I had a problem with all gathered end hammocks and could never fall asleep in them so I have not spent an entire night with the combination.

    The BBO was very well made and easy enough to put on. I would buy one again if I had a WBBB.

    Got one for my wife's BB. Got it same color as hammock which I think was a mistake as it makes it hard to tell where it starts and ends in relation to the hammock. Found it very easy to put on as I did it one time in the dark with out a flashlight. Wife reports it works very nicely for her.

    If wind is a major factor where you hang then a Sock might be a better way to go as it will block the wind from all parts of the hammock.

    Would be interesting to see how well a BBO and a Sock work together under very cold conditions.

    I use a BBO with my WBBB almost all the time. It fits loosely, blocks the breezes, and keeps the Yeti UQ and the BB clean. It also adds some heat retention.

    I have been looking at these for my wife's bb and would be very interested in your thoughts about it after you have a chance to test it out abit.
    Paul at AHE does nice work and i'm sure the quality will be fine, just not sure if it's a good deal or not.
    Keep us posted..

    I wonder what the ETA on the updated version for the 2014 WBBB is?

    The comment above about the wind is a good one. Does anyone know if this will parachute up in high wind or does it stay in place due to the 4 attachment points? Any ever try this vs a Sock? I'm not even sure who makes Socks these days.

    I bought a BBO and UQP from a hammock forum member late last year. I have used the BBO on a few colder nights and I thought it did a great job of increasing temps inside my WBBB and blocking wind. It is very well made and fits tight against the hammock without any billowing up. I also used the underquilt protector and thought it helped in extremely wet windy conditions but have not used it enough in colder weather to have an opinion.
    I say buy the BBO. If if does not work for your needs, another foreum member will snap it up in no time when you sell it.
