    Lounging sideways in a WBBB

    Does anyone else have trouble getting comfortable sitting sideways on the WBBB? I wonder if I'm doing something wrong, but no matter what tension I have on my ridgeline (mine's adjustable) the WBBB seem where the hammock layers meet the shelf/netting is so tight I'm not able to lean back. When I do try to sit back, it ends up right about my neck line and it's so protruding that it's impossible to get comfortable.

    Looking at Shug's youtube clip with Wanderin Fool (at about 4m) my WBBB will not get anywhere near as loose (flat back) as his will.

    Not overly.... 6'0

    Unfortunately, there's no difference if I slide towards the footbox. Because the seem is so tight, slouching below pushes the back of my head forward bending my neck pretty badly. No matter how I adjust my body or hang, the tautness of that back seem forces my back, neck or head painfully forward.

    Have you tried khanging your foot end a bit higher then your head end?
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    I pull myself up a bit more so my head's above the line, I do know what you mean though.
