Just think. Don't hang your bear bag, just hang yourself.
I'd never though of camping IN a tree. That sort of opens a whole new dimension to the woods.
Redwood trees are tall and straight, and limbs at 90d, and people have enjoyed climbing them for reasons other than topping. I believe some of the arborist style of movment. I used to do some redwood tree work, and at those altitudes, I can guarantee that if I decide to hang overnight in a tree, I will be top roped and my hammock suspension won't be 1/8 amsteel...
There is an HF member who uses those hammocks... he'll show up.

Stealth camping WAY up a tree... (no, not me!)

I think that thing uses spreader bars. 4 pounds 10 ounces is a little much for me. I think I will stay 1 foot off the ground for a 1.5 pound hammock.
The bat hammock perhaps does not look the most comfy of hammocks though I must say I find it an interesting concept only having one tree to find for hanging.
I am a little surprised this Bat contraption hasn't become even a little popular here on Hammock forums..I expected some members to buy them and sing it's praises starting a make your own diy version for otheres etc.
If you look at Toms website you get the impression he is marketing this product mainly for climbers rather than forest use I may be wrong here.
