    Oops, just re-read the thread... Oh well, this looks like a great hammock none-the-less. I will post a review in due course.

    Review

    Hello Hammock forum members.

    I wanted to apologize for the delay in making this video. Like most members I am an amateur reviewer and have a full time career and a family that I am taking care of on top of the hobby of reviewing products. I do all of these reviews for fun and enjoy making them.

    I hope that the members who made negative comments will be satisfied with the review that I made and that I did not leave a negative impression of what I am about. In the future if you are not satisfied with my post please PM me and we can talk about it. I can see where the negative comments are coming from and I hope that you will be more forgiving as the videos come along. I wanted to test out these hammocks a couple of times before posting the review. Like Yoda posted I do have some individual reviews on my website that I have posted during the wait.

    Thank you for your patients and enjoy the videos.

    Re: Bridge hammock battle!!

    Thanks. It has been a long time in coming, but you are doing a nice job.

    I know the Lawson Blue Ridge isn't a bridge hammock, but many of its properties are closer to bridge then gathered end. I'd like to hear your thoughts on it.

    Hey ibgary,

    Here is my review of the Lawson Blue Ridge hammock. Let me know if you have any questions about it and I would be happy to let you know what I think of it.

    Thanks for the reviews. As a jrb bmbh and wbrr owner, i was interested to see your perspective.
    .
    I agree the bmbh is probably warmer in winter because of the higher sides giving a more enclosed feeling and bringing the quilt up around your sides. Removing the centre piece of the wbrr top spreader bar gives a similar feeling.
    I think the differences in inserting the pad is a non-issue...5-10 seconds and you're done, regardless of the hammock.
    .
    Hoping to try the eureka chrysalis someday. There is a thread somewhere on the forum about how to reduce that 4 lb weight to something more manageable.

    Thanks again.

    One quibble: you state the weight of the warbonnet as 25 ounces, making it seem much lighter than the others. That weight does not include the bars, which are almost 10 ounces, bringing it closer to the bmbh weight.

    Btw nice hanging spot!
