    The Ultimate Flex 180 Suspension System

    The pictures below document a very light, comfortable and easy alternate suspension system to that of the stock configuration. I absolutely love this hammock!

    Looks well engineered. Isn't this hammock made for two people? Have you tried it with two to check it's stability? It looks like it would still be stable.

    I haven't slept in it with someone else in this configuration but my girls have (8 and 10 years old). They slept like babies but of course that isn't much of a comparison to adults. I have shifted from one side to the other and the sway lines kept it rock solid. I'll try it with my wife this weekend and will let you know.

    Looks very nice. I have the Vertex, and my husband and I love it. I was wondering about the Flex 180, but we exceed the weight limit on it.
    Happy Hangin!!!

    My wife and I zip our mummy bags together so we weren't interested in the vertex's separate sleeping areas. Does the 180 hang the two of you close enough to combine bags, or does the center create a barrier between the two of you? Excellent mods by the way!!!

    Unfortunately the middle does pop up and separates the two sides. If you look at my pictures under my profile, you can see a picture of my girls sleeping side by side in it. Happy hanging!

    That's the best pic I've seen so far to show the actual sleeping position. Thanks!
