This hammock is great! Used with a 0* Incubator and a Hennesey Hex tarp with sewn on doors by 2QZQ. I believe I have now found the ultimate setup for me.
This forum is great, thanks for all the advice.
Great to hear about that plan coming together! You always wonder how the shoulder issue will work out. That calf thingie really can be a chronic irritant. If it was not for that one thing, I would always choose a non-bridge and use them with my Pea Pod or HHSS. Not that the bridges don't have some other pros compared to non-bridge, but take away the calf thing and the over all benefits switch to the non-bridge for me.
Did you get the BMBH deluxe or UL?
