    DD Travel Hammock structural ridge line?

    Has anyone ever put a structural ridge line on a DD travel hammock? I'd love the ability to set up my hammock with the perfect bed every time. If anyone has any advice I'm all ears.

    Did you ever figure this out?
    I've been thinking about it and the bug net seems to be in the way.

    I'm using a dd frontline hammock and don't have any issues with setup. I did when I first got it take a few hours hanging it and testing it to find how I liked but and just memorised the angle in my head

    Because it is a very short hammock (8.5') a traditional SRL attached to the gathered ends would be annoyingly close to your face,

    But what you could do is attach a SRL further up your suspension lines (imitating a longer hammock).
    Your hammock is 106", if you were to measure 13" up the suspension lines at each end (that would be 132" - the same as an 11' hammock), and attach a SRL of 110" there, that would give you a 83% (5/6, 34°) hammock angle.
    You could then ditch the shockcord and attach the bugnet directly to the SRL.
