The Blackbird XLC is our most popular model, it’s a larger, modular version of the Warbonnet Blackbird and fits users up to 6’6″.
-Available in our new Dream–Tex fabric… built just for hammocks, it combines a traditional ripstop weave with a bias-directional diamond grid to create a fabric that has an incredibly comfortable cotton-like texture. Add in a fantastic strength to weight ratio and just the right amount of stretch and you have an ideal hammock fabric. 40 denier 1.6 osy
-Updated second generation design
-11′ long x 62″ wide hammock body, 112″ Ridgeline. Reversible Asymmetric end-gathered design
-Comes standard with fully removable, noseeum mosquito net top.
-Modular design allows the use of different tops and accessories across both the XLC and Eldorado lineups, mix and match parts from either product line to create what works best for you. Buy the hammock now and buy other accessories later that will zip right on. Build and customize your setup over time.
-Reversible top allows you to remove and “flip the net” to create a mirror-image or “reverse” lay configuration if desired…Head left, Head right, the choice is yours.
-All tops incorporate a 7″ wide strip of fabric or netting to raise the canopy’s edge-height above your face so that all of the hammock body width is useable, allowing you to lay right to the edge of the zipper while still having plenty of headroom. This gives the effect of wider body fabric but at a lighter weight.
-Multiple suspension options that are easily removable and interchangeable
-Enter or Exit on either side of the hammock
-Footbox for maximum legroom
-Features the famous easily-accessible storage shelf adjacent to the hammock body, around 2 square feet of storage space at your fingertips but out of your way.
-Fully compatible with our 2/3 length Yeti and full-length Wooki XL underquilt models.
-Fully compatible with XLC and Eldorado net and winter tops. Zip the optional underquilt protector directly to either top to create a wind and water-resistant shell that puts hammock and underquilt inside a highly weather-resistant micro-climate. (allowing you to use just a small tarp even in winter)
-Can be setup on the ground as a bug bivy. Be sure to use a groundcloth and pad underneath to protect the hammock fabric.
-Elastic side guylines pull the netting away from and out of your face. One or both can be removed if desired.
-Made in the USA by Warbonnet
Continuous loops: This option is not a useable 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, One pair of Warbonnet FishHooks: 6g.
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, One pair of Warbonnet FishHooks: 6g.
Note: The weight ratings listed below are based on comfort, not absolute tensile strength. So for instance the single layer is rated for a max of 250 lbs because users above that weight will experience more stretch than is ideal and so would be more comfortable in something with more support (like the Heavyweight double). The comfort ratings can be pushed somewhat but you will be trading in comfort in doing so.
