    Not to be a nit-picker, but the WB bag is not a Bishop Bag. It is a double-ended stuff sack that can be fully opened on both ends. A Bishop Bag is like a normal stuff sack with a small opening on the 'bottom' for the suspension to pass through. There is a difference in use between the two, as one can still only be opened from one end.

    Me? I actually prefer a true Bishop Bag. I still have the double-ended stuff sack on one of my Blackbirds just so I can have a 'stock' rig from Warbonnet. The rest of my regular use hammocks all have Bishop Bags. What I like about them is the ability to tell head from foot without having to add a string, or different colored clip, or a marker spot, or a......well, you get it. Can't help it, I'm just lazy like that

    That said, the double-ended stuff sacks are more easily used as extra storage at the end of the hammock. Just easier to access items stored when you can open it up all the way and get a good look.

    Then I just stuff my Brownbird into a double-ended stuff sack that I use like a Bishop Bag. I like to be nit-picky because words have meaning--ever hear about Mickey Mouse's divorce proceedings?

    No, but this is a family-friendly forum.

    I totally agree! Even though he doesn't come around much (if at all) anymore, the fella that created the Bishop Bag, "BlackBishop", deserves to have his creation acknowledged in it's original form. Course, I suspect he'd be somewhat flattered that someone like Warbonnet would take his idea to the next level and unleash it on the masses.

    Obviously, I'm a stuffer when it comes to breaking camp. I've got a couple sets of Snake Skins and some DD Sleeves too, but they are mostly for curiosity's sake. I've hiked with them less than half a dozen times.

    As stated I stuff my WBBB hammock in the ends of the stuff sack in a way as not to let it touch the ground (avoid wet ground or mud).

    Here's a video on how I do it see it at 2:57:

    Suspension, hammock, sleeping bag all go in compression dry bag as one unit.... Makes setting up a breeze, attach tree huggers, attach foot end of suspension to tree hugger, walk to other tree hugger and attach head end, adjust if needed.... I like the dry bag better than regular stuff stack, my sleeping bag is down and water is a big no no...
    Happy Hangin'
