    Love the zip-off bugnet / convertable feature of the hammock. This one will definately go on my wish list.

    I REALLY like the openness of it. Nice to be able to see about. The cover is a real plus for cold weather. On my list for sure.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    Really like the new 11'er.
    I have a question on the zipper. Is it just one pull that goes all the way around?
    I could not tell in the video.

    Yes, he does state that the zipper goes around the end. So it is one long zipper.

    I like that the covers are completely removable setting it apart from the DangerBird. One disadvantage in having just one long zipper I see is that practically speaking, you still have only one side with which to enter and exit. Same as before. With the DB you could technically use either side.

    Still a very nice hammock. I like the openness of it. Should be nice and cool in the Summer months.

    Any plans to offer this on the 10 ft version as well?

    I wonder if the zipper has a second slider so that you can reach under the hammock to adjust the underquilt from both sides? This is something I miss being able to do on my regular Blackbird.

    Excellent point! I also would like to be able to adjust a quilt like that.

    Wow. You combined all 3 of your hammocks into one. Very cool.

    The boss has been wanting a hammock for a while;

    Somewhere along the line, the laborious and expensive evolution will push these type of hammocks over $300 or close to it. Never mind the Clark...
