    Warbonnet Blackbird DL 1.0

    My Warbonnet Blackbird Double Layer 1.0 arrived today, so I thought I'd take a few photos in case anyone was curious as to what it looks like. Thanks, Warbonnet Outdoors!

    Also, since it is the very first time I've hung a hammock, I'd love some feedback about how I did. Thanks!

    Congrat Lib! Looks good! The attachment to the trees looks like they could be a touch high but how does it feel when you hang in it?

    Thanks, Bubba! When I sat in it like a chair my feet didn't touch the ground, so I was thinking maybe it was a bit high. I readjusted it prior to that because when I laid in it, the ridgeline was way too saggy.

    I only commented because you will hear members mention 30 degrees as the optimal angle of the suspension to the tree and your pic looked closer to 45. If you lower the attachment points on the tree and shorten the suspension you'll get closer to 30 degrees and your structural ridgeline will become more taut.

    Thanks, I appreciate the feedback. I just watched Brandon's video again, in the video he wraps the webbing waaaay up over his head. But perhaps that's because his trees were further apart?

    That's right, his trees were something like 15 feet apart in that video. The closer the trees the lower you attach them.
