I have been enjoying my DIY Bridge and tweaking it every day for a while now, but I finally altered my JRB Bear Mountain Bridge to be as wide as my DIY. I actually like it better than mine now since it is as wide, lighter than mine and narrower in the center than mine; it's easier to get out of by far.
What i did was cut the end caps and open them by about 8 inches at the top and sewed Omni around the hemmed edges. I intend to make a bugnet insert and a DWR insert for the ends. It is so much more open and there is no shoulder squeeze at all.
I will post pictures on this thread tomorrow of the hammock hanging with me in it. Sorry about that, don't have another model that will get their picture taken.... mule
