    Vivere stand 9'

    Hi everyone !!!

    My vivere stand is 9 foot and I want to make sure it is safe to hang a longer hammock on it...

    This picture is not from me but, can you tell me if it's safe to hang the fabric over the pole ?
    I don't think it' a good idea but, maybe it's possible.

    Anyone tried this ?

    You can always try it but remember the old saying "hang only the height you are willing to fall".

    Obviously not a good idea with a $100 hammock. Maybe a $25 special. Doesn't look long enough to be comfortable either way.

    The upright poles WILL bend in.
    The legs will bend / twist unless on really flat ground with no wriggling in the hammock.
    Speaking from personal experience using heavy gauge steel pipe.I am 6'2", 225 #.
    See photos of my final use of the stand as a "Welcome to Da Shack" hang" in Midwest in HF.
    Why ruin good gear trying to save a few bucks.
    Oh, yeah, I predict one or two falls unto the pipe if attempted. Serious "ouch" potential here...

    been using one for a year now every night I hang inside or else I am hanging outside full time hammock sleeper

    yes its a bit shorter but wide hammocks are almost as comfy its really close and no wear on the hammocks
    I use BIAS or Dutch wide ones

    until I can make or get a better setup in the odd room angles I am in now it will have to do
    I am inside with this my outside is about 15 foot

    so yeah it works but its not perfect but if you are in a situation where you cant do anything else its fine IMHO

    I sleep in my dutchware hammocks full time in my house, suspension is fixed on the walls and I sleep in the wood also when I go out for a trekking.

    I ordered this Vivere stand to take some naps in my backyard, but I was scared to use my 11 foot hammocks on it... Finally I ordered a eno doublenest to go with it. The distance between the 2 poles is 9'6 exactly and the doublenest is 9'4 so it should fit. It's a short hammock but it's wide, will be ok to take some naps

    My only problem with it, is that it's too short. As in, height of the anchors off the ground. By the time I got a decent sag, when I sat in the hammock I was sitting on the main beam. Not comfy. Laying down I was back to a couple of inches above the beam, so it would have been doable. But it made getting in and out of the hammock really annoying.
