    Review of Blackbird on BicycleSmile

    Not sure if this has been posted yet, but you can check out a full review of the Blackbird with lots of photos at www.bicyclesmile.com/reviews/blackbird.

    This was the first hammock I have used and I was amazed, it was great!

    I think that was a well written review. Every time I read one of these reviews it gets me more excited to receive my blackbird. Should be here the 16th or 17th of march.

    TY

    That would be my site, thanks. I am loving the Blackbird. I cannot wait for the weather to warm up a bit more so I can use it again.

    Nice review. The only thing I kept waiting for was some mention of a tarp. Those who tent camp would be asking if that weight included staying dry in a rain. Then again, maybe you bicyclists only tour when its dry?

    Nice site. I plan to explore it more.

    Yeah, the weight is purely for the hammock and no tarp. I did have an old tarp incase it was raining, but I did not need to use it. I plan to get a Warbonnett tarp this spring and I will let all know how that works out.

    Nice site, I haven't taken a hammock out on any bicycle tours yet. Makes me want to plan a short trip soon. I actually just pulled out my touring bicycle yesterday...
