    Video: A Lightweight Bridge Hammock --- Trail-ready

    The sequel to A Lightweight Bridge Hammock -- Counting Grams. The sub 10 oz bridge hammock gets a little heavier---but only a little---with the addition of a full enclosure zipped-in bugnet net. As an added bonus, the hammock picks up a 9.5 oz under-quilt, which in point of fact is the BUQ resurrected and re-engineered for the new hammock.

    Is that like "flammable" and "inflammable"?!?!

    Very nice system, Grizz. Makes me think about making a bridge hammock system for myself. Hmmm... .

    Thanks for the videos and the inspiration!

    Grizz, I made the mistake of watching this with my first cup of coffee--it will take a few more cups for me to grasp what wonders the master has wrought on this system. Indeed, you are the professor, nay, more than that, a wizard of amazing power. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. Well done, sir!

    That is some really cool stuff there! The spectra quilt suspension is brilliant. Nice work.
    Good luck,
