    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.

    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.

    1.7 double because I have a lot of natural insulation and rings and webbing for ease of setup and I dont like knots!

    1.1 double and rings.

    Double because I like the option of using a pad.

    Rings because they're really easy to use and not that much heavier.

    I also like the slickness of the 1.1. It's easy to move around in and also to reach around and slid your pad to the right spot.

    I have the 1.7 double for easy pad install. With a single I would tend to stick to pad. The double prevents that. Ring buckles with the webbing for ease of setting up of course. Think I'm going to order a double layer traveler with the footbox installed if possible for winter use and sleeping in cellar at in laws.

    TY

    The Double 1.7 because it's the one designed to hold my 260 pounds. Got the strap with d-rings because Brandon indicated it would be a good choice for a newbie.

    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.
    Romans 8:18,21-22
