    Feet being pressed together advice

    Just got back from a 3 day camping trip. Have a new 11 foot Hammock with integrated bug net. One thing I kept running into was that my feet were getting mashed together and got uncomfortable in the middle of the night. Any advice? Tried changing hang angle as well as how high the foot end was compared to head end. Do I need to adjust the Continuos loops and how the gathered end is gathered with the horseshoe on the foot end? Thanks.

    That can happen which is why I like to use a small Thermarest inflatable sit-pad under my feet slightly inflated almost year round. Can get it between my heels and it is my foot insulation when I use my partial length UQs...though I use the sit-pad with my full length UQs as well.

    Lately i’ve been using my $1 ultimate knee pillow. It takes all the pressure off your feet.

    The other easy thing you can do is put your heels down against the fabric together, then draw them apart spreading the fabric taut as you do. When you relax you will have each heel in its own little “sling” of fabric.

    I'll second this, it does wonders for your feet (in the hammock) and your seat (when not in the hammock).
