    I think there was a kickstarter or something similar in a thread here a few months ago that did just that. It might be a European design, if I remember correctly. Didn't generate much interest on here and looked heavy and complex but did have that feature, I think.

    Treem I believe it was...https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/t...-lay-hammock#/

    Different concept that what Bluesam was asking I believe though.


    That thing was neat and I appreciate the thought... but that was a solution looking for a problem in my book.
    He does have that bridge trampoline tight- so likely the only way for it to have a hope in functioning is that multi-point tree connection.

    Better ways to skin that cat in my opinon- but A+ for creativity.

    Yeah, I was thinking more elasticated guylines from a couple of points on the fabric at the head end, going out and down. Thinking about it more, I'm pretty sure the loading isn't an issue: any non-zero force applied there will flatten the bottom out to some degree, with the degree depending on the force in proportion to the tension in the fabric. Thus, you could put any degree of tension you like on there, and get a proportional flattening effect. So, you could set it up with a little bit of tension on them before you get in, then your weight will put just a little bit more tension on there.

    Didn’t read every thread but just wanted to say that I tried my Warbonnet Ridge Runner for the 3 rd time last night and it just doesn’t work for me sadly. Having bad knees I like to bend them and toss around. It’s a wonderful hammock but also being a belly sleeper it just feels tight. Man I’m bummed out. Also bought the 20f Lynx and underquilt protector. I’m now going to look at gathered end wide fabric hammocks. Will try that. Hopefully I won’t lose more than 25% when I offer it on the sale forum. I wonder if my rectangular quilt will fit on the hammocks that can be layed in either direction? Not easy shopping. Thanks.

    Before you abandon the bridges,you may want to try “JustBills” models. They may work for you. I have made the transition to the Amok Draumr, I find it very comfortable.

    Yeah. The Luxury Bridge was a game changer for me. I've been sleeping in it full time at home since I got it.
