    Any recent news on this? I'm looking to pick up a bridge hammock in the near future and this one has got my attention.

    Hi! The first three production models are done. Iíve been testing one since September and Iím really happy with it, wider at the shoulders and more open than the Deluxe. It packs down freakishly small and is just under 17 oz including spreader bars!

    Based on the testing we made few modifications that had the added bonus of speeding up sewing.

    Once they are ready for release we will be sure to post here.

    I can’t remember the exact weight but it was a large amount. I’ll get the exact number tomorrow while I’m at the shop.

    If there was a way to easily use your hiking poles then that would be perfect.

    The challenging part would be finding poles that can take that amount of force and not failing at a weak point.
