    Hammock Footrest from GargoyleGear

    I love lounging in the hammock. I tried the rope style footrest, but it cut into my foot and got uncomfortable, especially when barefoot. So I said "hey, why not a little mini hammock for my piggies?"

    Sorry, I'm no hammock model

    Attaches quick and easy to the hammock with a larkshead loop over the fabric bundle. Or slip the loops over the hammock suspension.
    Weighs a whopping 0.7 oz...because someone will ask. Sized to fit the popular 100" ridgeline hammocks. Tried it out for size on the rest of the gargoyle clan and seems like a universal fit for all.

    When not in use, the footrest hangs down out of the way, and doesn't interfer with the underquilts.
    I'll give three away to posts # 6, #9, and #11. (unless its me posting)

    Gargoyle, that's a great idea. Maybe I'll repost something in an effort to win one. Any way to double purpose that piece--make it into small stuff sack of some sort? Love the concept and it looks like it would be extremely comfortable!

    Great piece of gear you got there, looks like it's pretty comfy on the bare feet.

    I GTTA HAVE...
    "Pips"
    Mountains have a dreamy way
    Of folding up a noisy day
    In quiet covers, cool and gray.

    Surely, God could have made a better way to sleep.

    Surely, God never did.
