    bridge-reinforced corners?

    Hey guys, on a bridge hammock, do most people reinforce the corners? (where the webbing suspension exits the hammock?)

    Me either. The webbing is folded over and sewn shut (to form a loop) and then it is rolled into the edge of the fabric twice and sewn again. So in my view, it is pretty well reinforced and secured to begin with.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers
