    My Dangerbird Joy (pics-a-plenty)

    It came, today. I openly admit I've only spent a limited amount of time in it, but, my goodness. What a cool rig. Some specs:
    132ish by 60ish Double 70D Crinkle Taffeta = 440z with whoopies, but without straps / toggles. It's about the same as my BB w/ the stock suspension. I opted for a green overcover, same green as my HG quilts.
    I provided a bunch of a particular cordage I found and love for guylines, Papasmurf incorporated it into even the stuffsack:

    Just the ASRL:

    Hardware examples. Dutch hooks, Dutch biner on the REMOVABLE ASRL, my cordage incorporated into the zipper pulls, and the sweet reflective black grosgrain Randy used:

    Closeup of the M90 peak storage bags, with cordlocked bungied drawstrings:

    Netting Deployed:

    Overcover deployed:

    A combo which will probably be my favorite:

    Both ends of the ASRL can be tucked into the peak bags on either end, so this baby can go topless:

    Flat flat flat:


    Very impressed, worth the wait. My UQ is off to Adam for an update, but it'll look right at home on this guy. Great job Randy!

    I wish I could have gotten one of those while he was still taking orders. Hopefully there will be more to come later.

    Hey Rip, I've got one of your Ex's in my garage cabinet. How awkward does that sound?

    I think the thing I was most impressed with was Randy's flexibility on the front end. Much like Adam over at HG, Randy built a hammock around ME, not me trying to find an "off-the-shelf" that would just "work". Not that people don't find their dream gear on the rack, but I felt a hammock could really benefit from some personalization.

    Did I mention the GREEN purposefully matches my quilts?

    Looks awesome! Forgive my ignorance but does the overcover act just like a winter sock? Also, what mysterious cordage do you use?


    Again, your pics show all of the excellent customization one can ask for when ordering a Dangerbird. You really tricked yours out with some nice titanium bling! Think of a name for it yet?
