    I just bought an overstuffed CDT Lynx clone w/ faux baffles from the f/s section and.it's great. No messing with shock cord on each corner, just slip the loop over the tit on the spreader bar and done! So much easier.

    Have been thinking about the Ridgerunner, but I usually side sleep in the fetal position. I know it tapers in toward the middle. Does this make it difficult to side sleep in the fetal position?

    Some find it good in fetal and some find their knees against the stiff edges of the RR and find that uncomfortable. It must depend on height and amount of fetal position one is in.
    In my experience nothing works for everyone 100% when it comes to hammocks.

    Im 62 and my knees hit the side of the RR when laying with my knees up in a fetal position. I had to send mine back - really wanted to like it but it didnt work out.
    Maybe it works for a shorter person or with knees more at an angle?
    If you can see one at a group hang that would help.

    I don't know how far away it is for you, but I'll be bringing mine to the NoVA hang in November if you are still interested in trying one then. I'm 5'7 and I don't have a problem laying on my side in a fetal position. It looks like it really does depend on how tall you are and how far you bring your knees up. Since getting my RR.I haven't used any of my GE hammocks, that's how comfortable I am in it. And since I got the Lynx clone its been even better. So much for getting a new GE hammock to replace my XLC! All I need now is a spindrift and I'll be set. WB has a few in the blem section that I've been checking out, 2 old style w/ the single zipper that are first quality @ $25 off , and 1 new style w/ the pad zipper and a small patches hole for $15 off. I think i might get the brown old style since I don't use a pad. I used the sock in my XLC quite a bit last winter and it makes a big difference. As long as I left a small gap in the zippe rd for condensation to escape I didn't have any issues with it, and only once did I wake up with lots of frost inside.

    Thanks for the offer Chesapeake. I live about a mile from the Ohio River, so that would be a bit of a drive for me. Have a 90 degree Hammock Tent and an Amok Draumr that I may be selling soon to get some funds for a Ridgerunner. Son is outgrowing the 90 degree and I am preordering the Amok Draumr xl, so wont need the 3.0 anymore.
