Youngblood, in my case, at least, I doubt that hang height was an issue. I don't recall exactly how high I strung the HH when the ridgeline broke, but generally I like to string it as high as I can and still get into it. I usually have to push up on my toes to get my butt high enough to sit down into the hammock. On level ground this means the tree hugger webbing is at eye level or a little higher. I'm 68" tall.
