    Wow, what a great lay!

    I recieved my custom Blackbird yesterday about noon but couldn't open and set it up till about 3 or 4 hours later due to other honey-do projects. Finally set it up and took a little nap. I slept in it last night in the back yard and it was the best night I've had in a hammock so far, flatter, roomier, etc. It was much more comfortable sleeping on my side than in my HH or Risk Z-Hammock. My DIY RMS clone UQ even hugged it better than on my HH; once set up I did not have to adjust it at all thru the night. I slept warm and snug in low 40's with the above UQ and my JRB Nest as TQ. I usually toss and turn all night even in my HH. But I don't think I moved much at all except for the couple bio-breaks during the night.

    I loved it. Thanks a million, Brandon!

    I think I see a 1.1 Blackbird in my future.

    Welcome to the gang stoikurt. Hard to go back to others after sleeping in a BB. Oh, and nice thread title.

    I encourage you to go for it. I got the 1.7/1.1 combo with the 1.1 on the inside and it feels really gooooooood.
