    I was surprised how nice it was once I setup the ridgeline.

    Yep. Same problem here. I find that I either need something underneath my knees or to lay in a "figure 4" position to avoid it. Usually during any time of year but right now through October, I have extra clothing that can go in a stuff sack under my knees. During the summer (which lasts six months here in FL), I just lay in a figure 4, with my right foot tucked under my left leg.

    Hope it helps!

    I don't know that a ridge line is magical at all, but it sure helps to duplicate the last hang, saves a lot of adjustment time, and the line doesn't have to be super strong as not that much load is on it. All the other advise is great as well, I use it all.

    You have to love an interest that includes test napping as part of dialing in your gear!

    A stuff sack or figure 4, for me. The problem is that the fabric doesn't give where your heels lay, which creates the hyperextension.
    We are now ready to start our way down the Great Unknown.We are three quarters of a mile in the depth of the earth.We have an unknown distance yet to run, an unknow river yet to explore.What falls there are, we know not; what rocks beset the channel, we know not; what walls rise over the river, we know not. Ah, well! We may conjecture many things. The men talk as cheerfully as ever; jests are bandied about freely this morning; but to me the cheer is somber and the jests are ghastly. Powell 1869

    I use a neck pillow, and a stuff sack pillow for my knees----------works pretty good! Its part of being a tall person in a gathered end hammock!
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )


    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.
