    Lightbulb Ridgerunner w/Superfly & Spindrift

    I had nothing to do today and decided to set up my Ridgerunner and Superfly in the backyard in a couple different configurations and snap some more photos for the members of HF. People love photos when thinking about new gear, so I thought I'd supply a few more of this new hammock.

    This is the way I have been using my Superfly with the recent turn in weather to colder conditions. I always like "porch mode", so I try to set up the tarp as a windbreak in the proper orientation. What I like about the Superfly is you can use the doors as added width to stop more of the wind. With the addition of the Spindrift sock, you get another form of wind protection and an added warmth factor.

    Now, if it's really windy, or you don't want to use porch mode, you can set up the doors in a way as to wrap the hammock along the suspension lines. You can't competely enclose the hammock, but there is enough of a wrap to make a substantial difference. I have actually used this method in rain and had no problems with water getting to the hammock.

    So here are some photos...

    Backside of porch mode with doors deployed...


    Different angle...


    Front of porch mode showing Ridgerunner underneath with Spindrift foot end attached to Superfly ring...


    From the head end...


    Overall showing the length of the hammock system as opposed to tarp length...



    And this is after I took it out of porch mode and closed up the doors...



    Plenty of clearance for spreader bars...


    From the inside...



    Overall in backyard!


    Hope these photos help people out

    Cloudburst

    I just ordered a Cloudburst. Do you find your Superfly has enough room on the sides so that the spreader bars don't poke the tarp?

    thanks for the pics..

    Nice rig. I had the pole mod from 2QZQ for my superfly. I highly recommend it.
