    Sleepy Feet

    My feet fall asleep when I sleep in my Hh Expedition Zip. I hang the foot end slightly higher so I don't slide. I remember seeing a thread on here about it but can't find it. Any help?

    I would think you more likely slightly hyper extending your legs. Try a small pillow/stuff sack full of clothes/jacket rolled up...so on...under your knees.

    my feet and heels hurt and fall asleep in most hammocks-- i am one of the abnorm i think, as most seem to be able to fix this pretty easily.

    but i've tried it all:
    clothes under the knees
    inflatable pad under feet
    foot end higher
    more diagonal / less diagonal
    more sag / less sag
    longer ridgeline / shorter ridgeline

    my solution has been the speer hammock sold at tttrailgear.com
    "Jeff-Becking"

    DOWNTOWN BROWN!!!!
