    Wink In case you forgot

    I was out testing both Permethrin treated clothing today, as well as a Grizzbridge. Both worked great!

    But lately I have been reminded of the charms of my Claytor No Net.


    I need very little sag in this hammock. It is comfortable either way, little sag or lots.


    Claytor Diagonal lay right or left easy to find a sweet spot with no calf pressure and only minimal knee hyper-extension, or sometimes zero knee H-E with exact sweet spot:


    Claytor mid-line position. No need for diagonal. My legs are straight, or actually knees with miniscule bend, ZERO calf pressure/knee hyper-extension. This is the perfect way to use a PeaPod, and as or more comfortable as a diagonal position.


    Any one else ever sleep on the mid-line? I switch back and forth between diagonal and mid-line, but comfort is just fine on the mid-line.

    I don't think many folks are buying Claytors anymore. And some folks will prefer other brands for a variety of reasons. But this hammock remains one of my favorites, and THE favorite- for me- when using a PeaPod. This narrow hammock allows the top layer of the PeaPod to be closer to my body with less gap. And laying on the mid-line allows the top to sag down even more.
    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.

    Mid line

    I haven't slept that way yet, but it works well for lounging especially to add a little visibility to the surroundings.

    See what happens when neo stops posting.

    I've been trying to sleep mid-line for a while now. I actually started sleeping that way because I kept falling asleep watching TV in the bedroom while sitting/laying in my Brazilian like your picture at the bottom. It allows me to keep my head elevated, which is important in the battle against Acid Reflux; that's what the doc tells me anyway. Surprisingly comfortable. Maybe I'll bust out one of my Claytors this weekend and give it another go.
    Trust nobody!

    I need to test thoroughly and see if there is an advantage using very little sag while in the mid-line, at least with the Claytor. But diagonal OR mid-line, I have always felt this Claytor No Net was less critical of amount of sag than any other hammock I have tried. I never have bothered with a RL on it, because lots of sag or little, it just doesn't seem to matter much. I don't know whether all of that applies equally to a Claytor Jungle or not.

    I have a Hammock Bliss no net that is the same way. Without netting or any quilts pulled too tightly underneath it's pretty comfortable whichever way you lay in it. Seems if you attach an UQ with the suspension pulled too tight it changes the comfort level a little. Maybe less restrictve=more comfort?

    I used to sleep mid line most of the time in my Claytor and also in my Clark 250. Sometimes I would bend my knees slightly and rest them on the sides of the hammock. Very Comfortable.
