    I just ordered one - went back and forth on the fabric cover, but eventually decided to get it. I figured I could extend my camping season a little bit if I had the extra warmth.

    Can't wait to try it out!

    As long as it's here by the time the snow melts in the mountains I'll be fine. Hopefully it will arrive quickly though! I just assumed they were available since the website doesn't list them as back-ordered.

    Backordered applies to the materials used to make the stuff and not the products he makes. All orders are pretty much made to order except for a few he makes up before a launch. At least that is what I have gathered in my time here.
    Where ever you go,
    There you are.

    I ordered mine 3 or 4 (cant remember now) weeks ago on the assumption they were in stock and ready to go. I think the site is a bit misleading in that area. If they are being made as individual orders comes in, and its going to take awhile, thats fine...but the site should clearly reflect that.

    Still looking forward to the new hammock and Im sure it will be a quality item.

    I ordered 4 weeks ago tomorrow. Brandon said it should ship tomorrow. Fingers are crossed.

    I agree the site seems to imply that items will ship quickly. After all, it says back-ordered items take 3 weeks, so you'd assume that otherwise things will ship more quickly.

    I don't want to sound like I'm complaining though. I love my BB, and I know it's a small local operation. I don't mind waiting, especially when I know I'll get a high quality hammock and support a small business. After using my BB, I never even considered buying elsewhere.

    My XLC arrived yesterday. I ordered it on 2/8. No complaints. It's here, I've hung it successfully, and plan to sleep in it Saturday when I'll have some time to sort out pads, blankets, tarp, etc.

    But my initial impression is that it's exactly what Brandon promised: roomy and comfortable for my 6'1" oversize frame, and the build quality is excellent.

    I'm a total noob, so I'm having fun just figuring out how best to rig it, mechanics of getting in and out, insulating it for the mild Texas spring and figuring out what other bits and pieces I need to make my BB comfortable.

    It's worth the wait.

    Blackbird XLC

    Got mine today. The entire process started Christmas eve. First thing I did was swap out the net for the solid top, not to give it a hang.
