The Blackbird is Warbonnet's original mosquito hammock. The dimensions of the hammock body are roughly 120″x 63″, with an overall length of 101″ from end to end (ridgeline length), this gives you 15-16 inches of tarp overlap at each end of the hammock if using an eleven foot tarp. The Blackbird is rated for a user up to 6’0″ (for folks 6’0″ and above see our Blackbird XLC model). Hammock fabric is breathable nylon treated with a DWR finish. (Durable Water Repellency). Blackbird is available in several fabric types and also with a single layer body or a double layer body, the double layer increases the weight capacity and is also recommended for anybody using a pad as bottom insulation, you place the pad between the 2 layers which helps hold the pad in place and keeps it from sliding around.

The Blackbird includes a full-length zipper on one side, the netting can be rolled back and out of the way when not needed. Also included is the very popular storage shelf and footbox. The storage shelf is approx. 2 square feet in size and great for small and med sized items (pair of shoes, water bottle, glasses etc.). The Blackbird also includes a footbox which allows the user to fully use/extend the hammock fabric in the foot area without restriction from the netting, the result is maximum leg room. The hammock can be setup on the ground as a bug bivvy if needed, just be sure to use a groundcloth to protect the bottom of the hammock from water and abrasion.

The Blackbird comes with 2 elastic lines, one on each side of the hammock, these are used mainly to pull the netting out and away from the user, and to support the shelf, you can fully remove or leave these cords un-staked whenever it’s convenient, they are not required to use the hammock.

FAQ: What is the difference between your suspension options?

Continuous loops: This option is not a usable suspension by itself. It comes only with small Amsteel loops on the end of the hammock that act as anchor points for the attachment of just about any suspension type. Suspension weight: 7g

Webbing w/Buckles: This is a popular suspension option, it includes a pair of 12′ polyester straps with simple to use buckles, it is intended to be used with a pair of carabiners. Easy to use and adjust, almost no learning curve. Suspension weight: 6.7oz, one pair of Warbonnet carabiners: 1.75oz.

Whoopies w/Dynaweave Straps:  Standard 6′ Amsteel whoopie slings hitched directly to the end of your hammock, and 6′ Dynaweave tree straps (loop at each end). Our Dynaweave webbing is made from UHMWPE fiber which has the highest strength to weight ratio of any synthetic fiber available, the result is a full strength webbing that is much thinner and compact at 1/3 the weight of standard polyester webbing. Suspension weight: 2.35oz

Becket suspension: Our longest suspension option (and lightest per foot), with 6′ of extra reach compared to our Buckle or Whoopie suspensions. Hammock comes with Amsteel continuous loops hitched on the ends and a pair of 15′ Dynaweave straps (loop at one end). Suspension weight: 2.5oz
