For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
If you don't hang in it for to many nights you can untie the knot and change the hammock length to experiment with the length vs comfort
I have done that quite a few times to get the best lay.
I agree comfort is tailored to your height, and sleeping style.
I just experienced what you are talking about. Because of this thread I decided to rewhip my table cloth hammock to 7 feet. No calf ridge, and it is very comfortable! I mean like, real comfortable!
I'm short at 5'6"
