    Help! Looking for a new hammock.

    I'm currently using a DIY which is fine but been looking at the Lite Owl and Blackbird. Like the looks of both of these and would like any input I can get. Don't know if I like all the tie outs on the Blackbird. I'm 6 foot 225 pounds. I would need a bug net for the Lite Owl but heard its worth it. Thanks. I do move around a lot at night and move to my side some.


    P.S. I own a ENO DBL nest that is not my favorite.

    Take a look at the BIAS line of hammocks. At 11' they are mighty comfy and come in a variety of widths and suspension options.

    I agree that the bias are excellent critters... I may also recommend the dream hammocks... Ultimate in custom fit hammock... And both bias and dream hammocks are phenomenal at getting back to you in a quick and timely fashion for all your questions. Heck I talked Brian's ear off at bias a couple times.

    The BIAS are nice, but I really love my Lite Owl. I think you would be very happy with either of those.
    If you ain't havin' fun, you're doin' it wrong

    i started with a Black Bird and quickly moved to WL Night Owl.
    i have since added 2 Lite Owls and can say with full confidence that i have found the perfect hammocks for me.
    i have not tried a BIAS but they are gaining a following.
    as for me, i'm a Wilderness Logics hanger!
