    Talking "Blackbird on the way"

    Very excited, I just paid for my new " Warbonnet Blackbird ". This will be my Christmas gift from my wife. To bad I have to let her wrap it up, and put under the tree. I hope it arrives while she is out for a quick sneak peek. I will give my review with pictures soon. Russ

    I was relieved Brandon finally got his supplier issues worked out and my second arrived yesterday. The webbing suspension with the triangle ring buckles is super convenient to pitch, and I'm hoping to get some cold camping in before Christmas.

    I Paid for it Friday, hope to get it soon. Now all I need is a tarp. I'v narrowed it down to 2 choices: The Speer winter tarp or the MacCat deluxe. I can't decide. The speer has a nice sale price, but I think the quality of the MacCat is very well made.

    I have a MacCat deluxe and i'm very pleased with it!
    I'm sure you would be as well

    But then, i have never even seen a Speer Tarp in action.

    My 2 cents.

    It seems that the new BB from warbonnet is swiftly becoming the most popular hammock...
    If warbonnet can ever increase his size like the jacks did i think he would have no trouble with the commercial competition.

    When you get that light weight one( if you do) let me know if there is any noticeable comfort or flat lie difs.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
    Romans 8:18,21-22
