    Hairbear,,that is nice to know,,now you got me experimenting again as been playing with hiking poles and I like the way you can adjust the hiking poles to vairous widths playing with the lay and width. Your right. This hammock has so much versatility and I just keep on finding new ways to adjust and use it for total comfort.

    I have to join in too. I have made numerous bridge hammocks but this is the best, and the Linx underquilts are awesome. As far as the weather cover for the bottom, not impressed. it seems to be made for other underquilts to work and fits really loosely on my Ridge Runner with 3 season linx. it keeps the quilt dry but really leaks air and wind. I am happy with these hammocks.

    So would you say it's a no-brainer to just get a Lynx since I have RR? Wondering if gathered-end UQ's cover as well on the bridge hammocks?

    Absolute no-brainer. The fit that is achieved by the Lynx is tight and, frankly, perfect.

    Yeah, other underquilts will fit the bottom, but probably will come up well above the sides of the RR. Not a big problem...just limits access to the saddlebags. (btw HG Incubator fits the JRB BMBH very well).

    But if you have the cash, the Lynx is very sweet. It's also quite light.

    Hold on to that one - she's smart. ;-)

    BTW, the Incubator does fit the WBRR. The reason I went with it over the Lynx was that they use 900 fill vs 850 for the Lynx.
