    You should give one a try as they are comfortable and I love the fact that my stuff on the inside of my RR doesn't fall out or slide to the center as I climb in. I just shove my stuff into one of the saddle bags and it's out of the way.

    It's not that folks who sleep in a bridge haven't used a GE hammock (most of us have -- a lot), it's just that a GE has issues that, while they can be mitigated or overcome, a bridge doesn't have.

    It's almost impossible to have hyperflexing in a bridge. The same goes for a calf ridge. If you like to sleep on your side, a GE has fabric right in your face.

    A lot of GE uses get used to these problems and forget they are really problems or they figure out a way around the problem, like stuffing a sack of clothes under their knees.

    I have a lot of GE hammocks and I still like pitching them for relaxation but for a good night of no-fuss-no-muss setup, I prefer a bridge.

    I personally want to like gathered end hammocks as they are lighter and have a ridge line to hang my HangTime hook to but I tried again this weekend and I couldn't for the life of me get comfortable in my Chameleon and ended up getting less than a couple of hours of sleep. Add that I can't get comfortable to the fact that every thing falls to the center of a GE hammock, plus I can't see out of 1/2 the hammock and I just can't make these work for me. I'll always experiment but when I have to get a good nights sleep I will only consider taking my Ridge Runner.

    You sound like an ideal candidate for one of Just Bill's bridges. Most of them are lighter than the RR, and they have a ridgeline.
