    Packability of the Blackbird Winter system

    BB1.7dl, SFd, BMWL, WYDlx

    Locations:

    The middle one: Blackbird hammock (1.7 denier fabric and double layer)
    The smallest one: Superfly tarp with doors
    The biggest at left side: Black mamba top quilt (winter long)
    The second biggest one: Winter yeti under quilt with heat sheet vapor barrier.

    The last image with on only two items shows door package taken out from tarp package.

    An the paper is A4 copy paper sheet.











    Volume of the rucksack is about 21 liters. And while it was possible to do this, rucksack is too small. About 30 liters should be fine.

    Finally I got it!!!

    It came to Finland about ten days ago (one week from mailing from USA), but custom and local post service took their time...

    Nice setup! I need close to 35L to pack my winter WBBB setup. 30L is enough for all my gear for several days in 3 season conditions where backup clothing isn't so essential.

    Nice! Great display for future reference.

    Now, imagine how much smaller it would be if had a Double 1.1 Traveler hammock!

    I has a few of them black stuff sacks in my pack too! Brandon needs to start color coding his drawstrings, or something. With all that black, I get lost in the dark!

    Do not worry! I'm so seriously impressed by the product that I'm going to order other set for summer use (I'll will keep it with me all the time, day hiking, bike trips etc).

    Black bird 1.1 dl + Yeti (three season) + Black mamba long + Edge spin ul

    Weight 71,65 oz (2 kg) and it will almost go to pockets of a trench coat.


    And on the other hand, the hammock is very small compared to quilts.
