    BB is in the Air. Phoenix is about to as well. The buckles were not a big issue. The hardest thing was/is the fine adjustments.

    Thumbs up 2/24 1.7 DL WBBB Update

    Spent some time in the BB Last night and today, and let’s say, “Well done WarBonnet!!! Super cool hammock”! Now for the 1Arm review:

    The setup was very easy with the buckles. The adjustment was a little awkward at first but quickly was learned and adjusted too. Getting in and out of the hammock was easy. There was a little calf ridge but I was able to readjust the angle and reposition myself easily. I did have a little issue with trying to adjust my UQ on the closed side of the hammock. I believe this is mainly due to the way I had to reach up and over to get the UQ in position. The Foot box was cool, and easily used. The zipper pulls most defiantly will have to be altered for me, adding a small loop of paracord to the pull should do it. Once in the hammock I did notice some slack in the hammock fabric close to my head. Nothing major but at times it flopped on my face. The view was obscured some by the shelf and the extra fabric. I was very comfortable, and secure in this DB 1.7. Please keep in mind the issues I experienced were mostly due to the lack of experience in this hammock. The BB has moved to the top of my list of hammocks to purchase. I do wonder if the 11' XLC would reduce the calf ridge and the extra bug netting would extend the viewing area??? I guess we will have to wait and see. Again, Thanks to Muskrat for the use of his WBBB.
