    As a side sleeper, I know that bridges aren't the best at accommodating drawing up the knees into a semi-fetal position. But, I'd like you to compare your opinion of comfort in this position.

    Lawson Blue Ridge
    Eureka Chrysalis

    I will keep you posted but I am hoping to have the video up by the end of the summer/early fall. It would be great if I could get a Warbonnet Bridge hammock in on this action.

    If you are interested in this video please comment.
    Similar to our project this weekend. But we are covering more than bridge's. Look forward to seeing yours

    as long as suggestions are being offered (and seemingly taken) for this review, comparisons/analysis I would give were I to do such a review

    Tarp related
    -- how long is the hammock, suspension triangle apex to apex
    -- how wide is the hammock at the widest points
    -- what sort of surface or protrusions would touch the tarp at the widest points
    -- distance between spreader bars (i.e., length of hammock measured from spreader bar to spreader bar)
    -- how deep is the hammock from spreader bar to bottom of hammock under load (relates to coverage from wind-blown rain under the edge of the tarp

    Hammock related
    -- distance between spreader bars
    -- length of spreader bars
    -- weight of spreader bars
    -- ability to substitute hiking poles for spreader bars
    -- width of fabric under the spreader bar
    -- width of fabric at the middle of the hammock
    -- weight
    -- bugnet, ease of use
    -- means of connecting spreader bar to hammock
    -- storage, if any. How much, how does it affect balance
    -- ability to include pad
    -- support for attaching underquilt and/or weather cover


    Perception
    -- "view" from within the hammock
    -- "feel" at the shoulders
    -- "tippiness"
    -- ability to curl, how far up can one's knees be brought up and held in place comfortably for an extended period of time
    -- aesthetic "look" of hammock

    There's probably more but that's what comes to mind off the top of my head. Looking forward to the review

    Gotta love a "quant's perspective" on a topic.

    Very...quantitative



    I'd also be interested in all of the above.
