    Got my Warbonnet hammock today

    I got my Warbonnet today in the mail. I did not have time to give it a full testing. I did however set it up real quick and lay in it. I really think this has a flatter lay then the HH. I will try it out this weekend and give a better report.

    Here are as few pros and cons that I noticed, there are more pros then cons so far.

    I did not get the tarp that comes with it because I already have a MacCat tarp, so I can not do a report on the tarp.

    You do not seem to get as much screening to look out of as a HH has, but it is a different hammock style too. Don't get me wrong there is plenty of screening though.

    There is no ridge line, but it hangs easy and I hung it perfect the first time.

    I am concerned about the hanging cord on each end of the hammock. It is thin but it seems to hold me. I will switch that out with a buckle system later. It is very easy to switch out unlike a HH cord where you have to disassemble the hammock to change it this it very simple and easy job, a child could do it.

    It has a side pocket and I like the way it packs into its own pocket.

    I like how you can tie out one end of the screening separately (at entry point) like you would an end of a tarp. You can reach the outside of the hammock through the entry point and access anything near you side of your hammock unlike the HH where you can not do this.

    I am wondering how well the zipper will hold out on a thru hike or after a few extended long hikes. Right now it looks like it would.
    Love the top level entry so far.

    This has the feel of a HH or any flat laying hammock but it totally different then a HH (my opinion).

    I am hoping to have the day off from work tomorrow and if I do then I will try it out. If not then I will try it out Saturday when I head out to do trail maintenance.

    I don't know if he sells the tarp separately. I know you can order it without the tarp so I am sure he would sell it separately.

    Like I said I set it up and took it right back down so I did not have time for pictures. I will take some pictures either tomorrow or this weekend when I get to actually use it.

    Yep!

    Glad you got your's attroll. Yeah, the cut of the hammock does kind of limit the views. I'm in total agreement on the comfort vs. the HH. I'm not sure how to describe it, but in the HH you can feel the hammock supporting you and in the warbonnet I get more of that "floating" feeling. Don't have a clue why, but I'm diggin it!

    Thinner support lines? Since my switch to 3500 lbs polyester webbing that the hammock feels less "floaty" and more sturdy.

    yes you can buy the hammock and the tarp seperate or together. i think i will offer a slight deal if you get the combo. right now the price is 225 for the combo or 140 hammock 95 for tarp. website will be up soon...Brandon

    No need to disassemble the hennessy cord to change to the buckle system. Cut off rope/spectra at about 2 feet and tie to rings.

    Brandon,

    Since I already own a Speer Snugfit and a couple of JRB under quilts I have to ask: Have you tried either of these quilts on your hammock? Will they work?

    I have been thinking about buying one of your hammocks in the future, but the ability or inability to use my current bottom insulation will greatly influence my decision.
