    Can I lay on my stomach in a bridge hammock?

    I have just read way too many posts referencing a bridge style hammock but never found (except 1 quick mention) the answer to my question. Can I (average Joe) lay comfortably on my stomach in a bridge style hammock?

    I am currently using the WBBB and while it is nice I do not sleep well most nights. In the White Mountains of NH finding a place to set up a tent (even a small one) can be time consuming. I love the ease of the hammock. Find two trees, hang it. Problem is, I usually sleep better in a tent because I can sleep on my stomach. Will the bridge hammock solve that problem??? Thanks

    the bridge was my answer to the the problem to which you refer.every time i tried to sleep in a gathered end hammock i had no luck past a couple hours.the ridge runner was the hammock that kept me from going back to the ground.it is very comfy,spacious,and i sleep well on both my side,and stomach.i went from being peaved having to listen to everyone sleep around me to being the one they hear snoring.its all good zzzzzzzzz.

    thanks

    Thanks for the quick reply hairbear. I had read a LOT about sleeping on the side but seen only one quick mention of sleeping on the stomach. I am thankful for input from someone who does it.

    Many report being able to sleep on their stomachs in the Warbonnet ridgerunner. The best thing to see if it works for you is to buy one and then return it if it isn't to your liking. Warbonnet has a 60 day return policy, so if u like it u have a winner and if not, you're just out shipping costs.

    the hip area is sewn tighter to support your lower back while back sleeping.i use this by sliding down toward the foot end a little,this now will support your side where you want it.good luck.

    I seem to feel more comfortable on my stomach in my BMBH UL. On my back it feels too tight.

    Vtrek - where do you put your arms when sleeping on your stomach?
    Potential is nothing without hard work.

    I usually have my arms up under my head. (I didn't think of that point.) Do you think that would be possible in a bridge?

    I just made a new tablecloth hammock 90"x11'. My main motivation for this is because, I am a stomach sleeper. I have been able to lie quite comfortably on my stomach in this hammock in the backyard. I will be trying it out this weekend on a two night hang and can report back to hopefully the success of sleeping all night on my stomach.
