EXP: Is this a double layered hammock, Clark pockets? ? How did you put clothes "under the hammock inside the outer layer?"
BRIDGE FANS: Is it easier to winter insulate with bridge vs. compression hammocks? It appears to me that since there is much less stress on foot and shoulder areas that these vital spots might allow "inside" insulation with less bedding compression. If this is so 1/2 or 3/4 under quilts might be all you need. I imagine that you don't get as much "shoulder wrap" too.
Can you set bridge hammocks closer to the ground? Wind convection seems more the problem with initial heat loss in hammocks than radiation, and this would allow more protected pitches.
Sure wish the designer would join in. Seems like Chrysalis prices are dropping fast, so I wonder if some of the limitations are insurmountable. It is great to see innovation though, especially with the "bivvey approach." High pitched tarps are always going to be a windage problem.
