    bridge-reinforced corners?

    Hey guys, on a bridge hammock, do most people reinforce the corners? (where the webbing suspension exits the 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.

    Me either. The webbing is folded over and sewn shut (to form a loop) and then it is rolled into the edge of the fabric twice and sewn again. So in my view, it is pretty well reinforced and secured to begin with.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers
