best of all it only weighs 900 odd grams (just under 2 lb for the old world) and with a tarp it packs half the size of my 1 man swag.
If there's no trees around i can use it as a bivvy if needs be, and with the sleeve it takes even less time to put up
and for any aussies looking at them - the importer is based in ballina, i love supporting the local blokes
Looks like you scored a great deal. I dropped $150 for a Warbonnet Black Bird. It hasn't landed on my doorstep yet but it's my last shot at finding real comfort out on the road (or trails). I figure two nights in motel expenses covered the price and if I don't like it, I can sell it pretty easy on the hammock forums.
