    Pretty freakin happy with the WBBB in MultiCam

    I will say it, even though you have heard it before. I tried to cut a few corners and save a couple bucks when I started out. I know better, but I did it anyway. Maybe I was skeptical and didnt fully buy into the hammock camping thing. Well the WBBB makes my 6th hammock. Don't worry, I know better than to say it is my last hammock. I can say it is my most favorite hammock, now. I wanted others to work and struggled. Honestly, when you add up the components of other hammocks that it takes to be comparable to the WBBB you are talking about the same money, but you will be amazed at the quality of WBBB. I have 3 nights in it and it gets better every night. I am going to take it back down to the river this weekend and spend sometime in it there.

    I have a TQ/UQ on the way. I will be ordering a new tarp, very likely the Superfly. My gear will be complete and I can stop reading this dad gum forum and be happy with the gear I have, right? I mean surely all of you have your ideal set up and dont need anymore gear, right? I mean, I am sure once my other components arrive, this humongous gear hole in my soul I have been trying to fill will be satisfied, right? I can't wait to just lie in my perfect setup and enjoy the satisfied feeling that I no longer will want for any hammock gear, right?

    Thanks Brandon, great product. I look forward to years of use. Man that multicam is sure sweet hanging in the woods.

    You know, I have never laid in a bridge hammock, hmmm.....

    And there is a sale on a particular no-net bridge hammock going on right now... Hmmm!


    Sounds like you're getting pretty dialed in - congrats on the new gear!

    Ahhhhhhh, 3 nights in the WBBB, sweet. My HG 40* burrow became in yesterday, sweet, sweet, sweet! Slept like a baby, my Phoenix 20* is on the way. I was going to order from Adam, but my last email questions were never answered, just so happened some fellow HF members were liquidating some of their gear, that happened to be the same gear I wanted. Saved over $100 bucks, sweetness for sure. Now I can put that hundy towards something else....

    I copied tncamper, I think? I saw a post this summer where he camped on his business trip. I had a meeting at corporate office in Beaumont, so I went to Lumberton and camped at Village Creek State Park. There were 3 RV's and NO primitive campers. Sweet little park, about a half mile hike into sites and had the whole place to myself. Nice camp fire and a little sipping whiskey. Perfect opportunity to test my rigs limits. I have an HG 20* 3/4 phoenix and a HG 40* Burrow. My last test left me a little chilly in high 30's. This test it got down to 32*, I added a small piece of reflectix under my feet and wore some really large loose socks as suggested here. It made all the difference and I can say I honestly was warm under the quilt. Woke up at sunrise, made a pot of coffee, packed up, hit the hot showers and meetings all day. I may just have to do this again. Can't wait to hear about firewood on my expense report! Still saved the company about $62 for the night.

    I received my multicam Warbonnet Blackbird a few weeks ago and set it up in a local park for testing. The testing was cut short when i fell asleep! What a sweet setup!
