The Blackbird is our 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 aprox. 2 square feet in size and great for small and med sized items (pair of shoes, waterbottle, glasses etc).  The Blacklbird 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 bivy 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.

All our hammock models come with your choice of suspension, “Webbing/Buckles A.K.A Adjustable Webbing Suspension” or “Whoopies with tree straps”.  Check out our video section and look for the video titled “Hammock Suspension Differences” to see both these suspensions in action.

Included: The Blackbird comes with your choice of suspension, elastic side-guylines, built-in bug netting, shelf/footbox, and stuffsac.  Carabiners and tent stakes are sold separately in our accessories section.

    The Warbonnet Blackbird is a great choice for new hammockers. Setting it up with straps is very simple and straight forward. The storage shelf and footbox are two unique features I can’t live without. The footbox assures me of a good night sleep and the storage shelf is like having a nightstand. The weight penalty of these great features is negligible which makes the Blackbird the perfect hammock for me.

    We use to hang in Hennessey hammock until Shug showed the blackbird. I got one and loved it, then my wife got in it and I had her one . Going to get the xlc next. These are the best hammocks on the market bar none.

    The first time a spent the night in any hammock was in the Warbonnet Blackbird that my friend WESLEY BANGS loaned me on an overnight backpacking trip. I dare say I have never slept better in the woods. I am a side and back sleeper and was able to turn with ease, never feeling unstable. And it’s so roomy! I always thought sleeping in a hammock would be like being in a cocoon, but not so in the Blackbird. I never felt confined. My only regret is that I didn’t go to bed earlier!

    The storage shelf is perfect for keeping your essentials organized and available through the night. And the footbox is great. I never felt restricted when I stretched out.

    I went in a bit of a skeptic, but am amazed at how incredibly comfortable the Blackbird is.

    Just ordered my 3rd complete BB/tarp set up and it arrived in a record breaking 3 days! I order these as graduation gifts – not from high school – from 1st grade! Once one of my grands graduates 1st grade, I purchase their WB setup to start their adventures (and training) in the backwoods. Every grandchild is buzzing about their future WB setup by the age of 3. I have my criteria set (behavior/grades etc) and they work diligently to earn their WB. Some people say I spoil my grands, but they’ll tell you upfront I make them earn their gear and trips, carry their gear, and help with the preparations and maintenance. All gear stays at my house, and they’ll get to take it home the day they graduate from high school. BTW, we are going to visit relatives in a few weeks who don’t have enough room to board everyone. Being the older female, they of course offered me first dibs in the house. “Nah,” I said. “You got trees? Great! Then I’ll bring my hammock. I’ll be fine!” Life is grand in the woods when you are sleeping in WB gear. I wouldn’t trust my grands to nothing but the best! “Nuff said!

    The hammock was damaged upon arrival but as a testament to their customer service it was super easy and fast to get it all fixed. The hammock itself is super comfortable and easy to setup. I also opted for the whoopie slings and I am amazed it holds me up and most my gear off the ground without budging. (300+ lbs). Yet another great review. This will be my main setup for my Appalachian trail thru hike and im sure i will be happy sleeping in it every night. Thank you guys for an awesome hammock and great customer service!

    I am a kayak guide on Lake Superior and I love this hammock! It fits great in the stern of my kayak and I can set it up in no time. Having the bug net sewn in is such a plus during some of the buggy summer months (very happy it is not a separate piece). I sleep so well in here it is unreal. I have been using mine for close to 4 years now and no sign of stopping. Every time a guest sees it they want to try it and they are instantly in love.
