    Warbonnets wants

    I have been the proud owner of a Blackbird for a while now.

    This is a hypothetical question, sort of.

    If you could change or would want something added to the blackbird to make it better what would it be?

    The only thing I'd add to the blackbird would be a better way to secure the pad. Even with the double layer, the dang thing is so HUGE inside that the pad can move around a bit.

    More color options, especially black! Blackbird hammocks should be available in black IMHO. ;p

    Bigger triangle rings on the straps to make it easier to loosen.

    Some way to hang back the netting when you don't need the bug net without having to get out of the hammock.

    We got a foot box, would a head box make it even more comfortable? hehehe

    Little pieces of fabric tied on the zippers for easier pulling. I know this is an easy thing for everyone to do , but i'm just trying to help. 8)

    Yes I agree with the big space for the pad with the double layer. I have found that you can not just slide the pad in and leave it. There is a little aligning to do but it is not a real big problem. The way it is sewn together it is just a second layer sewn on top of another layer and it goes all the way up the sides of the hammock until it meets the netting on both sides. These leaves a lot of space in between layers. It would be nice to set it up so that it does not go all the way up the sides but I can not think of a better way so I have no suggestions.

    Due to a right shoulder problem I am only able to lay on my left side, so my feet extend to the left. If the foot "pocket" was available on the opposite side, I'd be interested in one, but right now, without that, there isn't a great advantage over the Speer I already have.

    A way to bring the right side "wall" and net down closer to the same height as the left side is. This would allow it to work better with the PeaPod, like my Claytor does. And a cure for the left calf pressure I feel just as with all other gathered end hammocks. Though this varies from hang to hang, or from person to person(I may be the only one who feels this with this hammock) and is probably not a problem when using a leg pad with a torso UQ or with something under your knees, it would be more excellent with out this gathered end effect. In fact, if I didn't feel the calf pressure I don't think I would even need anything under my knees with this hammock.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
