    Eureka Chrysalis will have least amount of "squeeze" when you lay(Imo). This is due to the fact that it is very shallow. When I lay on my stomach I couldn't get my arms comfortable in a regular bridge. I normally sleep with them crossed and my head on top. I couldn't do this in a normal bridge. I have found that personally I am more comfortable in a shallow bridge. They are more prone to tip, but they are very to get in and out of. It is the only hammock that I can actually sleep on my stomach with. On the other hand it is very heavy for a hammock, you will need a new tarp, and you will also need a bugnet. Also they are not cheap. Unfortunately hammocks are a very personal thing and you have to find the right one for you. This usually involves buying gear, selling it on the forums, buying more gear and selling it on the forums. I will tell you this if you can buy a bridge from one of the Cottage guys on the forums and it doesn't work out they will probably give you a refund(don't quote me on that just my experience). Good luck.

    These guys would be considered "cottage" industry by most here, and make a bridge hammock. I suppose that means they started out working out of their home or a small shop, don't know how big you would have to be to become a non-cottage.

    Also, on the HF "forum page", you will find these guys listed under "Hammock Gear manufacturer and services":

    Two of the known bridge makers besides JRB are Dutch and Grizzly Adams. There maybe a few others.
