    Claytor hammocks

    Just wondering, do people that use the Claytor hammocks also sleep off center? Or do they sleep the standard banana look end to end way. It seems all the pictures I've seen, feet are in the end and head is in the other end. Can you get pretty flat in them, like I can in my Hennessy? Thanks for any info. tnhillbilly

    That's fair assessment. The more sag the more asym you can achieve. I sleep very comfortably in mine. I think the extra length makes a difference.

    I agree, the extra length of the jungle hammock makes a big differance in comfort and in the amount of sag available.

    I can lie slightly diagonally because of the Jungle Hammock's size, although I wouldn't call it lying flat. It works for me, but I don't think slight shoulder squeeze or a slightly curved sleeping position is bothersome. I guess it depends how big you are and personal preference as to sleeping position.

    Their website, www.mosquitohammocks.com, lists it as 9'9' long and 4' wide, but I haven't measured mine.

    After a fair amount of use, my jungle model measures 9ft. 11.5 in. long. It must have streached a couple of inches.
