    BMBH width measurement

    What is the width of a BMBH? All I can find on the site is "fits up to 6'3", 275 lbs.

    The body of the BMBH is 80x 26 inches. The sides at the peak, behind your head are about a foot above your face when lying in the hammock…at your waist they are an inch or two above your body… Thus as you look forward and to the sides there are excellent sight lines. The bug net is an easy 12 inches or more above the face. Pad opening is on the end…26x2 will go right in, length is up to 80 inches.

    Width at the spreader bars is 29 inches... elsewhere it defaults to your width.

    I haven't used my other hammocks in three years since I got my JRB BMBH!

    WOW! I remember, DGrav, when you got it and posted here, you were like an instant convert and never looked back! Me, I took a while to come around!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    I know I've said it before, but I never understood why it didn't get quite the buzz around here as other hammocks. Great to see that interest seems to have picked up.

    I've been testing out the new version with the zipper and it is even better! Can't wait to get a nice week long trip in it!

    I've started using Dutch clips in conjunction with the JRB Tri Glides, by far it is the easiest suspension rig I've ever used. Quick setup, easy adjustment and light-weight!

    Any chance you'd post some pics of the zipper set up?
