    Is this your site AlexK? Just curious.

    I see better out of the hammock versus any tent.

    Hmm. As the OP, I don't see any tools for recourse against such affiliate postings. (? are there ? or just public shaming?)

    AlexK, please tell Bezos hello. I'm sure he'll remember me from the "1984" ebook deletion fiasco.
    I'd be the one that put him over the precipice of public apology.

    He'll remember the names I called him too.... "Son of perdition! Little Horn! Most unclean!" were NOT the ones used...
    and he's a FAR worse excuse for a "human" now.

    Save yourself from his grip AlexK, there's still time.

    NOW, back to happy hammock discussions.
    Thanks again to (most) everyone.

    And you can't buy a Ridgerunner on Amazon. Guess that's why it doesn't get a mention in AlexK's website's "Best Backpacking Hammock list."

    Looking forward to more views from the hammock when the weather moderates and the tarp becomes optional.

    Lot of us here want, and get, exactly what you're talking about. Lot of us have gone through progressions of hammocks, never feeling uncomfy in the hammock of the moment, but yet seeking nirvana of both increased comfort and a special feel that you get from the right one. For me, and would seem to be the case for you, is that seeing out has made all the difference.

    I have a Streamliner and can vouch for the view. However, the cat cuts of the Streamliner aren't for everyone. Its somewhat difficult to sit up and put shoes on due to the rigid sides created by the cat cut. Does seem to help with calf ridge.

    I have another U/L hammock that is 10.5' x 65" wide where my diagonal leaves my head and feet at the edge with as good a view as the Streamliner. I suppose this seems counterintuitive with a wider hammock, but its how it lays. One of the reasons you just need to get out and see what works for you, and what method works for you. Can vouch for the WBRR view, but I didn't care for many aspects of a bridge - and I really thought the bridge was going to suit me best for reasons that turned out to be not so important (to me).

    I've seen SS post about his thunderstorm phobia and, thus, aversion to porch mode. I'll just say this... porch mode - its a great way to watch a thunderstorm (and a lot of other things, too). One of the great treats of "being" in the outdoors is seeing how the forest deals with rain.


    Hang your tarp high, in porch mode, and find the hammock that works best for you!

    I don't think I have a thunderstorm phobia - far from it. I just don't think about a view from my hammock since I use my hammock for sleep and not sightseeing. Porch mode, one would think, is for people who are awake, and I use my hammock for sleeping!

    I realize itís a personal preference for sleeping which is what youíre mostly doing in a hammock, but for me, the ability to look out and see that nothing is there actually improves my sleep experience.

    Question:
    Can Anyone "See" out of their Hammock, as seen in the photo?

    I'd like to, but can't. Not even close.

    If yes, are you tall? I'm not.
    If yes, have you modified your hammock?

    It would be nice to actually be able to see the world.
    Typically, I'm buried deep inside and the fabric blocks my view. (eno singlenest and henessy UL backpack Asym)

    Am I doing something wrong?
    Is the photo not accurate?
    Do I need a shorter hammock? Modify for my height?

    Comments welcome.

    Thanks,
    Woody

    Iím new to hammocking and got WBBB XLC for Christmas. Iím 180cm / 5í11Ē and laying in it the first time I was surprised how big the wall on the RHS (opposite side to head) was. Iím still very new and experimenting but glad I can at least see out head side and up of course (when no tarp).

    It made me think back to the SLD Stream Liner and reading this post has added to that. Really happy with WBBB still. Just getting compulsions to collect more gear. HammockTent 90 Degree is the other hammock that piques my interest so good to hear about its side viewing as well.
