Wound up hanging the hammock at almost chin height. I'm 5'7" and once I got in I was about 10" from the ground. Whoppies from Warbonnet are on the way already. In the picture I took the hammock was below the back pack after I got in it. Lay was great though and the Army 30* bag with bivy + windshield reflector worked pretty good. Nice 30 min nap out in the woods.
