    Hey Guys I need a little help

    I just made the switch from HH to a BB and am going on a trip very soon. The one thing I did like about my HH was the Over Cover. Is there anything on the market like this for the BB or should I try to DIY one up? I would rather purchase something if it isn't to expensive because I have a pretty busy week before the trip and would rather just get something already on it's way instead of buying ripstop and making one (my DIY skills is not as good as it could be). Any suggestions or if anybody has any thing they want to get rid of feel fee to let me know.

    The BBO is a wonderful piece of gear and well worth the money IMHO.

    Wow I had no idea the BBO was so popular it's such a speciality item.
    I would have posted in the forsale area.

    Samwise did purchase it.

    What's the purpose of the over cover?

    Top covers help to trap a bit of extra heat in the hammock with you for cold weather. The breathable nylon will block some wind and retain heat so that you can extend your temp range a bit. It also will block a bit of light so you can sleep in
