    Grizz Invented a Bridge Hammock

    Grizz has just completed a labor of love: countless hours of innovation to create an ultralight bridge hammock. It's coming in the mail to me soon. Here's a video David made about it:

    Thanks Evan.

    While I have for the most part retired from making bridge hammocks for others, last summer Evan approached me with a challenge---to make one as light as I could but still be full-featured. So the joy for me was in the challenge. I went through three prototypes (messing around with the cord channel and end-cap for recessed bars) before settling in on the design.

    The hammock got a bit more work to put in a full enclosure zippered bug-net, an interior ditty bag, and a stuff sack after I made that video. Added just under 3.5 oz. To give this thread a raison d'etre I'll shoot some photos in the next couple of days and a bit of chat about making the bug-net. Who knows, maybe even a short (is that possible???) video. Perhaps a users manual....

    I would absolutely like to see more about the hammock. I would also like to be able to buy one of these bad boys as well.
