    Hmm...

    Really liking the Bridge hammock concept. Is there any way my Pea Pod can be used with it?

    I don't think that the bridge style hammock would work with the Pea Pod. You wouldn't be able to wrap it all the way around yourself. You may be able to rig it as an under quilt.

    I tried to put my peapod under my bridge. It worked OK, but not great. The problem is the hammock is cut exactly opposit of the Peapod. The hammock is catcut and the peapod it tapered on the ends. I think I would have to do some modifying to get the center snugged up.

    That's kind of my thinking. The bridge hammock shape is more of a tube than a bananna. The bridge hammock is prefect for a rectangle shape. If in doubt, email the jacks they are really helpful with their products.

    Having tried a BMBH, and now having a PeaPod, I don't see it happening. Not with the spreader bars at the end.

    how about this idea..

    for you who already have the Bridge... My Pea Pod is extra wide. What if I untied the ends, added (velcroed) a piece of quilt maybe a foot wide along the length of the Pod, and tried to fit it over the Bridge hammock. What do ya'll think?

    I would email the jacks on that. I think it might turn out to more work that it is worth, but that's just a guess.

    You can make a cover, just not the same shape as a Speer cover.
