    Haven Tent (air mattress bridge hammock hybrid)

    Has anyone at HammockForums participated in the Kickstarter campaign and received one of these? I'm intrigued by the design, which looks as comfortable as my Amok Draumr XL. Perhaps Shug won't be able to resist trying one out, and I can enjoy another of his unique review videos.

    Dang. I wouldn't have posted a duplicate thread if my forum searching skills were better. Thought I had been the first one to bring up the Haven Tent here. Sorry! But I would still like to see Shug do a review of one...

    I backed this on kickstarter and it arrived yesterday. I slept in it last night indoors on a tensa stand.

    My initial impression is that it is made like a tank. I have 6 or so hammocks from a variety of makers and this is the most heavy duty.

    Itís clear a lot of thought went in to it. I really like the organization features and the end vents.

    The good news is that it really is the flattest lay of any hammock I have ever been in. If you have issues with pressure on your knees, your feet, calf-ridge etc, this is now a solved issue. If you want to sleep on your side, that is no problem. Thatís exactly how I slept last night. And quite well.

    However, for me personally, there are a couple issues. This is my first bridge hammock, so this may be typical of the genre, but I am a bit outside its specs. I am at its weight limit and 6í7Ē. I figured there would be some wiggle room, but there isnít. I you are over 6í4Ē you will have to sleep on your side so you can bend a bit.

    Second, the bridge lines down the sides are super rigid and the hammock is relatively narrow, so where the various foot-end issues with gathered end hammocks have been completely addressed, at the head end, at least for someone my size, laying on your back is like being squeezed into an unforgiving sheet metal box. But thatís ok because I wanted to sleep on my side anyway. I donít think stomach sleeping is really an option unless you are much smaller or at least narrower.

    I hope they or other vendors do more with this design. I might try a larger pole at the head end.

    For me, and Iím not of average size, I would like to see a version of this maybe 4 inches longer and wider at one end and made with some of the lighter weight materials weíre used to seeing from DH, Warbonnet, SLD, etc.

    Oh, one other thing, the pad is pretty thick. If you find yourself needing to sleep on the ground with just trekking poles to hold up the ends, you will do so comfortably. It would be a bit like a bivy because it is so narrow, but still quite capable.

    Sounds great, and since it is obviously too short, and hence totally unsuitable for one of your generous stature and much better suited for someone less gargantuan, like myself, I get first dibs on a used Haven

    you have enough!


    I feel like a direct comparison to my (specifically mine) draumr should happen.


    it's -39 here, we can really put their pad to the test!

    I just got one in the mail from Derek and set it up and just laid in it a couple of hours. Totally agree with your statement above that I highlighted. I'm going to suggest he try to make it wider at the head end as I too felt a bit squeezed.
    Though I must say it is pretty cool and I can't wait to set it up as a ground bivy as I think that is where it will shine.
    It'll be easy enough to use lighter biners and seems no problem to use a tarp of your choice. Not messed with the included rainfly yet but it seems fairly small side to side.
    At least it is something different.

    Threw a pad with baffles running head to toe to try and now I know it has to use a pad with side to side baffles like it comes with. Makes sense after trying.
    Looking forward to playing with it some more.

    But yes...just a bit wider for arms and shoulders would be my first suggestion.
    And because your on a pad the sides of your arms are right against the hammock fabris so getting the TQ under your arms will be needed for warmth.
    Seems possible to add a UQ but it would still need the pad. Tried laying in it without pad and it was clear you need the pad.
