A little over head height? Wow, ok. I tried like I said to set it up for the first time yesterday. But I only set the tree straps about 3-3/12 feet off the ground and pulled the hammock somewhat taught. I guess I figured the tighter it was, the more you would be able to lay flat lol. Will try the higher hang and give it a little more sag. Looking at some pics after my initial post I can see I went about it wrong the first time.
I take it a tighter hang is gonna give you the "shoulder squeeze"? At least that's what I found. It was however, EXTREMELY comfortable and look forward to ditching the tent to the kids this years trip. (their backs can handle it better than the old mans).
