    Waited till my order was in for my first post....

    I'd just like to take the time to Thank Hammock Forums, and everyone here for all the info I was able to absorb in choosing my first hammock.
    I just ordered a WBBB 1.7 DL with the web suspension, carabiners, and
    the superfly.
    Cant wait till it arrives....my backyard is about a brisk 10 minute walk to the Appalachian Trail (very close to Sunfish Pond in NW New Jersey for those who may know the area) and I've spent many (way too many) years as a ground dweller.
    The asymetrical lie and the footbox combined sold me...(Too many years in Heavy Construction and 2 back surgeries)
    Looking Forward to meeting new friends here, and Once Again,
    Thank You All.

    You are going to love your new hammock. My girlfriend just bought me one for an anniversary present. It arrived earlier today, and I spent the rest of the night inspecting it and enjoying the comfort. This was money very well spent. In my personnel opinion the 1.7 double is far superior to my other two camping hammocks. In terms of ease of entry, comfort, setup, storage, and functionality. I believe this so much I just bought 2 more 1.7 doubles. One for the gf ( because shes super jealous) and one to convert ground sleeper when we're camping. I hope you love your WBBB as much as I do and cant wait for your review

    Thanks for the welcomes....I absolutely love this hammock...its so easy to set up, and more comfortable for my bad back then my bed!
    Ive had it out twice so far, once with the superfly in porch mode, and once without the fly (loved this)
    Will try my hand at a video review, but will say this; there's nothing I don't like about what I've got. I'm researching UQ's right now, but have been fine with a Klymit static V pad for now.
    Happy hangin'
