It is astonishing how quite here is. I think the Alpine hammock is revolutionary design, but no reply's anywhere.
Feels same as in VersaShelter thread.
Well I will make a review about condensation when I get mine...
What about the spreader poles? It looks a lot like a Clark, but I thought that Clark had a patent on the poles? Wouldn't this be a patent infringement?
There does not appear to be a structural ridgeline. It also doesn't look like a bridge design.
It doesn't appear like you can lay diagonally in this hammock.
How do you maintain a consistent geometry?

It does look cool, but for me when I camp I am not a bivy kind of guy. I have a huge 11' papa smurf roaming gnome and a seperate tarp. I bike camp mostly but when I hike it it is really nice to have all that room. I am anxious to hear your report but this looks to be a niche product. I have been very comfortable before in slightly shorter hammocks and hammocks with no ridgeline so that doesn't scare me as much, but the condensation and possible claustrophobia would. Let us know how it is when you get it.
This way hammock setup could not be easier, just hang up the hammock, put in pad and top quilt and You are ready to hang.
There is some more images of the earlier prototype at their Facebook page.
I agree with Boomer, it looks a lot like a Clark hammock to me...
