Best Hammock of 2022 - GearLab
For multiple years running, the Warbonnet Blackbird has been our favorite suspended backcountry bed. Of all the end-gathered models we tested, its spacious asymmetric design lets you find the flattest position, and the foot box provides space to spread your hard-working extremities. The Blackbird ha...

First Hammock Purchase
Warbonnet Blackbird. Well made, can be custom made to order, and have a storage shelf.
buying my first hammock
I have a Warbonnet Blackbird, it's very well made, double layer, full bug net. VERY nice.
How comfortable is sleeping on a hammock vs a tent?
Buy the Warbonnet Blackbird XLC - you will be glad you did - no air mattress- invest in Wookie -

The hammock I've had for 10 years finally died, in the market for a small or regular sized replacement
Warbonnet Blackbird (regular).
The shelf feature is awesome. There is an internal ridgeline underneath the bug net. And you can customize the construction - single or double layer, weight of material, which side the zipper is on, etc.
Looking for recommendation: Hammocks with storage
The Warbonnet Blackbird XLC has the “shelf” which is on the right side for the traditional “head left/feet right” lay and on the other side if you reverse it. It’s good enough to hold your wallet, keys and other small items.

Amok hammocks
Once I spent an afternoon getting in and out of it a few times, I knew this would stay with me a while. I also use a Warbonnet Blackbird which I enjoy tremendously. While others have talked about the weight, yes it’s a bit more then my WB setup, it’s not a deal breaker for me. It’s supremely comfortable and with the Amok winter pad, I was comfortable down to low 30s F. Long story short, it’s not as easy to enter as a typical style hammock but the options for laying/sitting up far outweigh the cons of a slightly bulkier design.
First time hanging with my new setup. Verdict: A+
I've always slept well in the Hennessy, but the Blackbird is next level. I liked the top entry with the new hammock, and found setting up the tarp, straps, and hammock as separate components was a better overall experience than having all on the same suspension (as with the Hennessy).
