    The bridge hammocks with the "high" bars could be lowered simply by lengthening the bars. This would raise the center of gravity (the bed of fabric) and cause the hammock to be less stable.

    Thats exctly what I was trying to say!
    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.

    The Lawson hammock is not a bridge hammock. The design of the Lawson looks much more like a typical backyard spread hammock with a tent on top. I haven't seen this hammock in person, but I don't think that the spreader bars are "on the bottom." They will probably end up being above your head once you are in the hammock, just like in your backyard woven hammock. I'm guessing from the pics on their website that if you lay in that hammock it's going to dip in the middle from your body weight. A bridge hammock solves that problem with the cat curve cut of the sides, allowing you to lie flat in a straight line down the middle of the hammock.
