    Great review of a great product. One pro tip, if you order a double layered model and want to be able to insert a pad between the layers, make sure to mention this otherwise Mat will seal the fabric all the way around.

      Thanks Tord, this is really useful. I would have guessed that all double-layer hammocks allow the user to slip in insulation between the fabric.

    Great review, Derek! I’m considering buying a Woodsman X DL, and this article was very helpful. Do you know exactly how long this hammock is? 118 inches or even longer?

    How does this hammock compare with the WBBB? Looks fairly similar. I tend to be a side sleeper and wonder if this would be a better option?

      The footbox design is clearly different using different techniques but achieving similar results. The Woodsman X also has a removable bug net. The Warbonnet Blackbird has perimeter tie-outs to pull out the sides of the hammock. A few other odds and ends.

      As for side-sleeping, I often sleep on my side and in a semi-fetal position in all the hammocks I own. I haven’t found one that is better or worse, necessarily. Gathered-end hammocks, with their low center of gravity, really help maintain a balance and prevent you from tipping, so side sleeping and tossing and turning are no problem. Sometimes it can feel like working around in a water bed, but it is doable.

    Nice review. I’m thinking about matching this hammock with a hammockgear standard tarp with doors. What tarp length would you recommend with this hammock?
