Preliminary measurement, hammock laid out on my bed and measuring from head end bottom most seam to foot end = 82-83".
If accurate ( later today I will hang it up and measure again ), that will confirm my impression from my very 1st hang that I (6'1") have more room length wise in my original ~ 2007 or 2008 model than I do in my much newer UL, going by your UL measurements. It would also help explain why I have not been able to get the exact fit with my UQs that I got with my first BMBH. My impression has been that by hanging the UQ from the side rings per directions, that my UQs are too long giving me a large amount of side gap. I had meant to contact the Jacks about that to see what advice they had, but have not got around to it. Mainly because I mostly put my MW3 convertible on this hammock anyway, in short mode, and all is perfect using it that way, as it is on the WBRR. Using full length on either is trickier.
Does any one have a deluxe zipper model they can measure?
Keep in mind that I often have my head resting on the end caps, which then equals even more head room length wise.
