    Question re Blackbird color

    It appears the color scheme for the Blackbirds is clear -- 1.1 comes in slate grey and 1.7 comes in olive green. Does anyone know whether the 1.1 nevertheless is available in olive green? Thanks and sorry in advance for what is probably a stupid question.

    It is not. One color, per weight of fabric.

    Still trying to figure out how something called a Blackbird...doesn't follow Henry Ford's words:
    Any color you want, as long as it's black.

    I'm lucky enough to have a black Blackbird.
    All dark black fabric and netting. Love it!

    I have a 1.1 and a 1.7 the 1.1 is "grayer" but still pretty green, it is ripstop looking (grid) material. My 1.7 is Olive Drab and "thicker" material...

    they look similar to me

    I just recently received new WBBB 1.1 DBL and it came in Olive Brown. The hammock and stuff sack are both the same color, a cool shade of brown'ish sateen.

    How about this to muddle it up further. I've got a 1.0 that is black. Grey Black.
