The Warbonnet Blackbird Hammock by Jim Bradley

The Warbonnet Blackbird Hammock is a nice fully featured hammock. It is a bit pricy and also a bit heavy but if you are looking for a luxurious sleeping experience that still weighs less than a tent this could be a good option.

The Warbonnet Blackbird Hammock boasts a large set of features. The primary ones being: a full length side zipper, storage shelf, footbox and elastic side guy lines (not to mention the whole bug net thing…). You are also given the choice of two suspension options – webbing and buckles or whoopies with tree straps. I decided to go with the webbing and buckles (personally I don’t think it really matters which setup you go with – webbing seemed like an easier setup option which is why I choose it). Setup is fairly similar to any other hammock and Warbonnet has some great online to help you if you are confused. The major difference between setting this hammock up and traditional hammocks is the configuration of the elastic guy lines. They are intended to pull the netting out and support the shelf. They achieve this purpose well but make it kind of a pain in the butt to get into the hammock. I generally tended to set up the guy line which supports the shelf and forgo the one on the other side. This caused the netting to drape a little closer to my face then I liked but made entry/exiting much easier.

I use a Warbonnet Traveler Hammock with a DutchWare Whoopie Hook suspension (minus the Dutch Clips). My tarp is a Hammock Gear Cuben Hex Tarp, which I’ve rigged with a CRL, soft shackles, a Dutch Hook, and a DutchWare Wasp. I use a warbonnet Yeti UQ, which I then supplement with a little CCF in early spring/late fall. I’ll probably add a sock into the mix this winter.
