The Ridgerunner is not deep AT ALL - it's quite easy to press your leg up over the edge a bit, without feeling like you're going to come out of the hammock. I regularly lay in a figure 4 position with my legs, and both arms over my head, palms below my head, with my elbows sticking straight out, and have plenty of room. Stretching the leg up to the side is absolutely not a problem in the ridgerunner. Sure, you might press on the netting a bit, but the netting on the RR is loose, and as long as you've got a layer of clothing or insulation between you and the net, bugs won't be an issue.
One of the most-praised features of the ridgerunner is the massive amount of space to the side of your head. Nearly every person who I've let try ours has immediately done the hands-behind-the-head pose within the first couple of minutes of laying in the hammock. I can think of no other hammock, apart from those old rope-and-spreader deals, that allows you that much space to stretch out your elbows.
