    Fighting the dreaded leg ridge

    Does either have essentially no calf pressure?

    There you are, I'm sure you were wanting a whole bunch of questions, right?
    Lol lets see if I can answer them all. (I'm fighting silnylon right now and need a break anyway)

    In the 11' I can find much less calf pressure but I half to be careful, because if I don't watch for it a leg will fall asleep. I never had that problem with my HH. When I find the sweet spot/angle in the 11', there's almost no calf pressure at all. I was never really able to get rid of all the calf pressure in the HH, unless I was in a tight fetal position because I was cold.

    I think that some calf pressure is probably just part of the gathered end hammock. It how you work with it that makes the difference.

    this is what I was thinking too, there seems to always be that "wall" next to your leg that comes from the gathered end of the hammock. Makes the legs fall together.
