    Dutch clips seconded! Awesome little piece of kit. Some people are surprised when they find the hammock arrives without carabiners (if you get the webbing straps) so grab a couple (or Dutchware) in advance.

    That's what I did... I actually got two rigs before my WBBB got here.

    One thing you can do to prepare is buy your tarp guy-out line material and make up your lines. I think the Warbonnet site has a video that tells you the ideal number and length of lines. I added a couple of mitten hooks to the tarp "door" D-rings and rigged up my lines so I could clip them together under the tarp when the doors weren't deployed.

    I also purchased a pair of Titanium Dutch Clips for my XLC's tree straps. Highly recommended (like any of Dutch's goodies).

    Take it easy,

    Thats what I did while I was waiting. I got some Zing-It and made my ridge line using Mini Dutch clip and a tarp Fly. I also made adjustable guylines with prusik loops. Worked out great

    Just got a refund from Brandon...they are out of guyline and I had 100ft on my order. I'm hoping that means it's almost ready to ship.
    Any recommendation for a source? How about Jacks R Better's self tensioning lines?

    Same deal here. I e-mailed Brandon and if I get a response I'll let you know what he recommends.

    He said that Arrowhead (http://www.arrowhead-equipment.com/) carries basically the same thing but it's called "utility line". I went ahead and did what you did though and picked it up from Dutchware (http://dutchwaregear.com/25-feet-of-zing-it.html) since it was quite a bit cheaper.
