    BB color question

    I'm a newbie to hammocking and have a question. I've seen pictures of the Blackbird and know that the web site says that it comes in od green and dark grey. Is it available in black as well?

    IMHO, I think that solid black would look really cool... especially since it's called a Blackbird!

    Brandon told me he was out of the black sil that he used to make tarps, and I got the impression he wasn't going to get any more. I'm not sure what weight that was, but it's possible that he made hammocks with it at some point.

    He'll probably be along to answer your question before too long.

    There are a couple of black Blackbirds out there, but yeah I think east stingray is right about him being out of stock. Hopefully he will get some more and in the 'fat kid' material weight next time. I'd still like a single 1.7 in black, but mostly I wish nylon took dye better and easier than it does. I have visions of a dye-tied hammock.
    Trust nobody!

    Shug's video on the Warbonnet web site (http://www.warbonnetoutdoors.net/) show's one. It looks waaay cool! I think Brandon should make that a permanent color choice!

    I wanted the black too until I saw the grey. Love my black MambaJamba though. I can't sleep a wink with any light on my face.

    Spent a few nights in mine....you fall asleep so fast the color just doesn't matter! Just buy one, even if all he has in stock is neon pink!!!

    Actually I really like the looks of the grey....more importantly, I just love the way the thing feels! These things are great, with unbelievable workmanship and comfort....
