    SOLD: Custom Made GrizzBridge Hammock

    Hello All,

    I am selling my custom made GrizzBridge hammock.

    I am not going to be able to use it for 10-12 months (maybe longer) so I thought I would share it with somebody else who might give it some hang-time!


    Four things to note:

    (1) It will not include whoopie slings nor tree straps. All suspension will terminate at the ring.

    (2) There is one small tear in the material (where the foot-wall meets the tub) that is about 3 inches in length. It would be a very easy fix if you have the means/skills. GrizzleyAdams (who made it) has said he is willing to fix it, you will just need to send it to him.

    (3) It will not include the wooden dowels for holding up the bug-net as you will see in the photos within the links below. It was quickly discovered that this system did not work so the dowels got turned into firewood one cold night. How I changed it was to put cordage between the loops (where the dowels were) and than thread the ridgeline for the bugnet through the cordage. You will need to either do this yourself or device another solution. I am sure if you come up with something really great ProffGrizz would love to hear about it.

    (4) I switched out the stuff-sack it came in to a slightly larger one with a slightly larger cord. No idea where the original bag is. I went with a larger bag so I could put my tree-straps in the same bag.


    You can see photos of it at:

    You can see videos of it in my three part series starting with:

    I contacted Grizz before I have put this up for sale and he had no issues with me selling it.

    I am asking a very firm $225.00 for it - which will include shipping.

    PayPal Payment Only

    USA lower-48 Shipping Only

    It will go out USPS first class unless you want to pay for expedited shipping, which you should figure will be at least $30-$45 dollars, because of the spreader bars causing an over-sized box to have to be used.

    actually, the buyer can have RedwoodGuy send the rig directly to me. I'll make the repair, and throw in 5' long whoopie slings and 6' tree huggers (1" wide, camo polyester), and turn it around and send to the buyer. In CONUS anyway.

    it isn't clear from RWG's description, this is a BIG double body hammock; it should hold up to 300 lbs I'd guess.

    I wish I could. Never tried a bridge hammock but I will someday. And I understand the Grizzlies are some of the finest.

    Awesome to hear Mike!

    Wait to you spend a night in one of these puppies... you'll no longer question the extra weight of the poles for the utter comfort of the hammock!

    how is this one for getting out of compared to the BMBH? I had a BMBH a while back and my biggest problem with it was that it was very difficult for me, a fat kid with short legs, to get out of. I literally had to muscle myself out of it because the sides of the hammock came up so high.

    That coupled with the "perceived" instability due to a weird center of gravity compared to gathered end hammocks was unsettling and I ended up selling the hammock.
    I have heard your confession I know who you blame
    If you had it all back you'd just lose it again
    Can't bank on redemption if you ain't saved
    Don't bring me your tales of temptation and loss
    Don't bring me the pieces of your shattered cross
