    Sweet!!!

    Just got my black bird 1.7 double in the mail! Set it up in the back yard, threw a pad between the layers and crawled in. Wow is this thing cool! I had an eno dbl that I used this summer. It's a back up now. First solo to the BWCA this Friday and I'm looking toward to using my new hammock. Will a 10x10 tarp cover enough?

    Sounds great and hope it doesn't get to cold at night in the BWCA this late in September. Wishing you a great time and good fishing

    Ordered last Thursday, had it monday. I got lucky.

    RE; insulation, I have a BA synthetic pad, a Kelty 20 degree down bag, and a Marmot 15 degree synthetic. Pad between the layers, then the marmot unzipped underneath me and the kelty like a top quilt. Its supposed to be lows in the twenties on friday night. Will I sleep?
