    A Few Questions about Warbonnet hammock.

    I have been needing to upgrade to a better hammock for a long time now, I just haven't gotten around to it - But that's going to change soon - I hope...

    I see a lot of people with Warbonnet hammocks, so they must be pretty good. I am looking at the Warbonnet Blackbird, Double Layer 1.7 Is it any good? Is the hammock material its self "mosquito proof"? Also, is the Travel Sock any good?

    Warbonnet Blackbird is a great hammock, so is the RidgeRunner and everything else I've owned from Brandon.
    Even if you eventually decide you don't want your Warbonnet (not likely) - you can sell it for just a slight discount. They don't last long on the For Sale forum...

    Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."

    Mosquito's can bite through bottom if you do not have an under quilt. Some guys spray bottom with bug juice, but I do not. Mosquito's in short supply in Arizona.

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)

    I think that can be said for any hammock. An under quilt works great for that, permethin should help to

    I have both a WBBB 1.7 dbl and a 1.1 dbl (both with adjustable webbing suspension). Really like them both but prefer the 1.1 for the softer lay (I barely beat the 275 weight limit) YMMV. Quality made stuff.
    Mark is the name and If there is more than one way to understand what I just said....I meant the good one.

    +1 on Warbonnet. I've purchased quite a few things from Brandon and have been pleased with every single one of them. I've also had a chance to drop by their offices and can say that Brandon and his group are incredibly friendly folks. My money likes going there - for the quality products and people.
