    I bought the standard right side footbox. I tried it for several nights. I am a sole right side sleeper. Brandon took it back and sent me a lefty footbox which has been just great. Many nights of happy sleep on my right side. Of course now my son wants to nix his HH in favor of a BB so I might end up with a standard right side footbox again. Sorry and thanks again Brandon.

    I'm a right to left sleeper. Fortunately, I learned from the various threads that Brandon offered the WB with a left footbox ... so that's what I got. Love it!

    well, I tried another night in my "righty" bb along with a few short naps and just playing around in it, looking for that sweet spot and it's just not happening for me. Yes, I can sleep in it but can't seem to get to and stay on my right side which I much prefer. I guess it's time to pm the warbonnetguy and see what he says and to let everyone know that there might be a "righty" available soon.

    When you guys are figuring out which side you sleep on, is it based on how you sleep in a bed or a hammock? In my home bed, im on my back mostly then on my right some...There are outside factors to determine which side i sleep on though, i like to sleep with a fan blowing in my face and it is on the right side of my bed.....this is probably too much info, but im considering a BB and need to get the right one...thanks

    I purchased an inexpensive 'parachute' hammock and layed in it for about a month. During that time, I always tended to lie right to left. It just didn't seem natural to lie the opposite way.

    I've been using an eno double for over a year now, almost everyday as at least a lounger in my office, I usually take naps in it, and camped all last summer in it (2 months). the eno is uni-directional so you'll end up in the position which will suit you. In bed I'm a right side sleeper and found that in the hammock I am too.

    I just spent two nights in my BB. The 1st night was not bad but the 2nd night it just seemed to lay better. I slept pretty good with the exception of two raccoons fighting in the weeds about ten feet from where I was hanging. Man oh man growling and snarling. I was wide awake. Then it started to rain 15 minutes later I had drifted away.
    So far it reminds me of a pair of new shoes. The more you wear them the more you like'em! It got down below 60 and I was toasty warm with an army poncho liner under quilt.

    I just spent a week in my BB. It was my first time out with it and the first night was a little uncomfortable. I had some lower back pain. I don't think I was diaganal enough.

    The 2nd night I really experimented with different sleeping positions and found I really love the footbox. I slept like a baby the rest of the week.
