Definitely interested in this thread. Can't wait for the results.
Back in 2000, boxers Russell Rees and Des Sowden entered the ring. The bell for Round 1 was rung and 4 seconds later, Des Sowden was on his back unconscious.
Based on this addition...
To be fair, I haven't used a Chrysalis yet.
You might compare some of these hammocks with pad use. I find the JRB with pad pocket to be about the best hammock I have ever used with a pad. Plus has an added advantage of actually widening the shoulder area at least with some pads. It would be interesting to see if all the bridge hammocks work about as well with pads.
And as I think has already been mentioned, how much interference there is with tarps by the spreader bars.
Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.
one more, ability to place arm above head. This has to do with sleeping on my side, and end caps. On my side I put my head on my arm which I extend more or less straight above my head.
My summer bridge hammock is open at the ends to let air through and get out of the way of my arm.

I have the Chrysilis, and it is very cool, but I have to say, it lays sooooooo flat that it feels downright hard under you. I now appreciate a little teeny bit of shoulder squeeze. The way the hammock HOLDS you is important. The Chrysilis is so nice in so many ways, but I think it will be more comfortable with a pad on the inside. I can put my arm straight up or straight out in front of me, but it has no support out in front of me and feels uncomfortable. With a more conventional bridge, it limits my arm extension but also holds it up. Just some random comments.
The present moment is eternal. I would rather be Here, Now.
I don't know if this off-topic but i was searching around for the Eureka Crysalis and noticed the attachment buckle looks like a hybrid of Dutch clips and Bloomgorge Elephant trunks...http://www.eurekatentscanada.com/pro...94?s=section_4... just wondering if i was crazy...
I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
