    I am just discovering this hammock tonight.
    Been away for awhile.
    I will have to give it a test drive when I have some cash.

    It has quickly become one of my favorites.

    Last night was my first night back outside. Slept in my Tree Runner with a summer blanket and a 40 Yeti.

    Still a little too hot.

    Hi,

    Do you think it could be possible to use it with a Neoair inside ?

    I have not been able to try it yet. It is of course single layer(only 9.1 oz), no pad pocket, so I do wonder about difficulty keeping it in place, especially if fully inflated. However, probably all of that would be better than with a gathered end, though I can't say for sure.

    With a different single layer bridge hammock, this user managed to use a Neoair wide winter pad to stay warm at minus 10F. He did not report any significant problems with staying on the pad.

    In an earlier report, he said this:

    I was really bothered by this in gathered end hammocks. Not so much in the bridge.
    But, that is a different hammock, though both are single layer bridges.

    Thanks.

    I'm looking for a light bridge hammok to sleep in my stomach with a neoair xtherm and a quilt (not underquilt).

    I saw the JRB an the Treem.

    You can see a nice demo of this suspension used on an HH, near the end of the video at 4:31:
