For all the hammock campers in search of the perfect hang, finding the ideal hammock is the first step. It's the foundation that our sleep is built on, and in the backcountry, a good night's sleep is the difference between a beautiful day of happy hiking and long hours of slogging down the trails.
The Warbonnet Blackbird is my perfect hammock. I've been using the Blackbird for about one year, and it's the piece of gear I've built my entire system around. So I'm here to share my experience with the hammock—along with some tips and tricks I've picked up along the way—to help you decide whether the Blackbird is right for you and to help you learn how to make the most of your new hammock.
