    Looks very nice. I’ve had one of his hammocks on my list since i first saw it on hammockforums several years ago.

    Great review. I’m thinking of getting a Dream Hammock but am a bit confused on what width to get. Do you know the width of the T-Bird you reviewed?

    • Derek says:

      I believe it is 60 inches. It depends on which fabric you pick too, but it’s all listed when you go through the ordering process.

    Great review. I had the honor of winning a hammock at the Florida hang and chose the Thunderbird. I gotta say it’s a great hammock and extremely well-made. I love the modularity of it. I haven’t needed the netting yet but the overcover absolutely cut a number of degrees off the inside temp (as well as keeping the blowing wind off me).

    I absolutely love the 1.6 HyperD material. It feels very nice. I opted for coyote and it’s a gorgeous hammock.

    With the assem pullouts on the DH is the lay flatter for a diagonal lay.
    In your opinion can you lay nearly as flat as a warbonnet XLC.
    I love the WB XLC but I also like the DH zippers and options.
    Wish I could have the best of both worlds

      The side pullouts help open up the fabric and do more to keep the bug netting off your face and legs and make the whole hammock feel larger inside. The size of the hammock has more to do with the flat lay than the pullouts. The Warbonnet and DreamHammock are built with similar dimensions and have a similar lay.

        Derek, thanks for the reply and most of all thanks for this great site and the wealth of information. I am seriously honking about getting a Dream hammock thunderbird and giving it a season of use.
        I have your book and have read it more than a couple times.
        I have converted some tent campers just armed with your book. I am a convert and love flying into the Alaska bush and hanging from my plane. Thanks.
        Patrick

    DH has come out with a new flagship hammock, the Sparrow. I don’t know if there is any way to improve the Thunderbird, but I think it would be awesome if you could do a review on it.

    I ordered my new DH a few weeks ago and I can’t wait to hang in my DH Thunderbird. It should be arriving mid June. I also selected the 1.6 HyperD material in double layer. Top cover and bug net too. Love the available custom options they offer and I have to say Randy and Deanne are just super easy to deal with as a vendor. Deanne is so nice. She gave me some great advice and feedback that I was looking for on my first custom hammock purchase.
