    Decision after much research

    Getting warm and buggy in the south so I had to make my mind up on what hammock to get. Since this post is here, it should be easy to guess what I decided. Hopefully Brandon got the 1.1 dbl and Sprfly order this morning. Looking forward to a flatter lay than my ENOdbl. Thanks to everyone for the great info on all the minutiae topics on this elevated way of life.....LOL

    Hope you enjoy it. I really like that the bug-net is up off of my face whilst in the BB.

    I have an 11' DIY hammock that lays very flat and was nervous that the BB is shorter and therefore wouldn't get me that flat lay I was after. Boy was I surprised at the comfort level of Brandon's gear. The footbox and shelf are just such great features. Enjoy your new gear!

    not trying to thread hijack but how long does it take for one of these to get to you after you order one
    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.

    Just got a dbl 1.1 in the mail yesterday and so far so good. It has a very different lay then the dbl 1.7 that I am used to but I like how its a good bit lighter. Enjoy the new hammock WB makes great gear
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    How does the lay differ? I'm 200lb and looking at the 1.1dbl. Is it because the fabric stretches or is it a different size and cut?

    Thanks

    Newton - You can expect about a week for it to get shipped, then however long it takes for USPS to get it from Colorado to your location.
