    Which Options did YOU Choose

    Just curious which options members went with when purchasing their Warbonnet. Since I coundn't figure out how to post a poll, here's my question:

    Which one of the suspension options did you choose, and why?
    Which one of the fabric options did you choose, and why?

    I think I know which way I'll go with these, but am curious as to your ideas and useage. Thanks.

    1.7 double with rings and webbing. Why: I'm a lazy lard-butt who likes to be comfortable and dislikes huggers, but is still concerned about damaging the trees.

    1.1 double with rings and webbing. Why: Because I bought it for Genuine Draft. She's a cold one so the ability to slip a pad into the hammock in addition to the SnugFit on the outside is a nice thing. Same suspension for the same reasoning.

    Coming soon...
    1.7 single layer with rings and webbing. Why: I've got a 485 mile hike coming up in July and want to shave a few ounces.

    Ditto!...........
    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.

    Double layer 1.1 - because I use a 40" wide ccf pad for insulation, I wanted a pad pocket because I don't like laying directly on the ccf pad, and I weigh in at about 160#, so I figured the lighter weight 1.1 fabric would work for me.

    Adjustable ring buckle webbing and suspension - Its just very easy to use and I like being able to adjust the hammock from under the tarp when its raining. Also, I'm not a knot person.

    Just an update to say that my BB should be on the way by tomorrow 5/9. I chose a double 1.7, standard configuration, OD green, with webbing. Thanks to everyone for the help. I wonder if I'll need to switch from the MacCat Deluxe to an Ultra (got to keep the economy going).

    I used the Speer Winter tarp with mine. I will use that tarp even in the summer since it is so light.

    Both of my warbonnets are 1.1 double. I ordered the first one with the rope and huggers setup and found it annoying to work with, so I ordered the second with straps and ring buckles, and had brandon add a second set of ring buckle suspension to my order so I could switch the first hammock over.

    John I got the BB second hand from another member here. It is the 1.1 with webbing/rings and the reason I wanted this one is the ease of setup, plus webbing and rings/buckles is what I prefer. Im light at about 134 soaking wet so the 1.1 works great for me. Also, i dont use a pad in this one, just a summer weight underquilt. (2/3, 32 rating)
    its about 26 oz after all stock accesories plus 2 Camp nano 'biners.

    I thought you were a bridge guy? You have come over to the BB cult?

    Both of mine are custom, so no idea on the fabric weight. I know the second one is much, much lighter than the first. But both are double layer, and both are camo. Tree straps for both. Love the treestrap setup.
