    JRB Quilts on the Ridgerunner

    Rumor has it that JRB Quilts don't fit the Ridgerunner hammock. Here's evidence to the contrary.





    Using two biners from the JRB Suspension, clip one end of the quilt to the web strap loops at the head end of the hammock.

    At the foot end, using an additional biner, clip both suspension elastics to the continuous loop at the point of the suspension triangle. Wrap the elastics around the suspension cords several times and clip to the corners of the quilt after feeding the quilt between the hammock and over the spreader bar.

    Works like a champ!

    I can attest to this.
    I've been hanging my RR with a JRB quilt under it for over two weeks now using a method very similar to this.
    Trust nobody!
