Here's my rub with bridges, compared to a gathered end-with few exceptions-there is a weight penalty (I saw Hangnout's personal bridge and this was not the case), add to that the need for a larger tarp and penalized again.
I understand some have to sleep on their back and for them the penalties are moot.
Pole mods and bridge use. Not knowing but it looks like the double pole mod=conestoga wagon mode seems ideal. Kinda like in Acer's most excellent vid but with the poles on the inside of the tarp, thoughts?
you know, the double and single are really close to the weight of the blackbird if you don't count the poles, so if you used hp's as spreaders you wouldn't have to add the weight, you could make an argument for a slight weight penalty for needing a bigger tarp, but then again, the underquilts are lighter...the full length 3 season lynx is barely 17oz (5.3 oz lighter than the 20 deg incubator)
