    I dig mine.

    Pros - as comfy as the black bird, no head or foot area so you can spread out where you want, light weight.

    Cons - no shelf so you can't store much of anything in the hammock besides your insulation, no bug net so you will need that during bug season.

    I like mine, but it's not love. It's well made, but for some reason I never have found the OMG! sweet spot. Still, it's reasonably comfortable, and I plan to keep it for occasional use. If the capability to utilize a pad is not needed, I prefer an ENO Double Nest.

    I enjoy mine. Comfortable, relatively light and as simple as they come.

    I'm afraid that I agree with Old Gringo. Love my BB, but the Traveler just isn't as comfortable.

    The view is far better from the WB Traveler, than from the WBBB.
    If by chance there is mosquitos I set up the WB netting or just use a net over my head.
    I have both the traveler and the bird.
    I only use the BB under special circumstances.

    I have hundreds of nights logged in my Traveler. I have enjoyed its simplicity since before the current version was even made.

    I guess I'm kind of opposite of OG above, in that I have found the sweet spot in the Traveler but not 'quite' in the ENO. It takes all kinds!..and is a good illustration of why it's great that we have choices.

    That's a common misconception, unfortunately. The Traveler and the BB have *the same* fabric bed shape and dimension. The 'footbox' is simply a sewn triangle that is there to meet up with the shape of the netting...it doesn't affect the lie of the hammock itself.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy
