wanted to post this because this thing has changed my perspective on hanging. Some background...I purchased two treerunners (my first hammocks) from Jared at SLD for Christmas. He was a great guy to work with and was patient with all my stupid newbie questions. I liked mine (after some tweaking) but the wife didn't like hers. Sold it here and bought her a WBRR. She tried that and decided that she was sticking to the ground. So, that was sold here as well. Well, I found the streamliner for sale here on the FS at a good price and pulled the trigger on it (really want her to like the hammock experience so I can take mine on our section hikes). Well, she hasn't had a chance to try it yet because I tried it first and am blown away by it.
To me, this thing combines the flat lay/no calf ridges of the bridge hammock with the roominess and (perceived) additional stability of a gathered end. While not quite as roomy as the traditional gathered end (like my treerunner) I find that any position I get into is comfortable (mostly a side sleeper). I no longer have to search out the sweet spot as I change positions at night. I have spent the last three nights in it and I can say that it is a gamechanger for me...I can honestly say that I am now sleeping much, much better than I have on the ground. I don't believe I could have said that before.
Every now and then I see someone posting and/or selling their gear because the "hammock thing" didn't quite work out for them. this product may be "the one" for someone in that position. I don't usually fall in love with gear but I feel like this design brings something 'extra" to the table for those struggling with finding the right hammock.
