    Got my set in the mail yesterday and WOW!!!!

    The first thing I noticed when I picked up the box (which contained the 2 quilts, the JRB bridge hammock, the cat cut tarp, the self tensioning lines, and the JRB suspension system) was how light the box was. I thought to myself that surely something was missing. Nothing was.

    After opening the box and inspecting everything like a giddy child on christmas morning, I must say the quality of everything they sent is ABSOLUTELY top notch. The hammock, the quilts, everything all have perfect stitches. All hems are straight with no zigs or zags and no loose threads.

    Thank you Jack's. I was in need of the quilts anyway and that price I just couldn't pass up the deal.

    Excellent! What's the weight of the setup you got? (Can't help myself.)

    Don't have a scale handy so not entirely sure. I'm not a super gram weenie but I try to buy light just for comforts sake. I'll probably pick one up this weekend and then I can weight my whole setup.

    As long as you're not a big guy, it's quite a deal. If you aren't happy with the Bridge, you haven't saved quite as much.

    6 1/4 lbs seems pretty good to me. Escpecially when you consider the flexibility this setup gives you. Jack and Jack have obviously put in a lot of time and energy to make a product that is as light as can possibly be without sacrificing durability (read: safety).

    I haven't got in the hammock yet, weather is crappy right now, but we'll see how it fits me. I'm 5'11" and not quite 200lbs so I'm not a giant but not a small guy by any means. I'm fairly broad shouldered buy I'm a habitual side sleeper and the HH just isn't very comfortable for me to sleep on my side so I'm hoping the BMBH gives me that ability.

    Give sleeping on your back a shot with this hammock. Arms across the chest/abdomen like in this picture. http://www.jacksrbetter.com/index_fi...r%20Pocket.jpg
    I'm a side sleeper also and have never slept on my back anywhere until I got this hammock. More comfortable than on my side IMO.
    Let us know how you like it.

    I'm 5'7" 200+ Lbs, the prototype BMBH was way wide enough for me! H.E. is 6' & the BMBH was long enough. So you should fit quite nicely

    Congrtulations on a great set up. Wish I had the money, , , & the need for.
