    Sleeping double in a ridgerunner?

    Has anyone tried sleeping double in the Ridgerunner? My girl likes to snuggle I just thought if I got it in the double 1.7 it might work? Anyone?

    The way it curves inward around the waist, there wouldn't be much room for that (a gathered end is actually roomier from that standpoint.

    I don't know many people that can comfortably sleep two in a hammock for more than a nap. I don't think it would work.

    I haven't tried it in a RR, but in other hammocks, both gathered end and bridge styles, it's fun and cozy for a few minutes and hot and cramped after that. It's okay for fun, but not for sleeping.
    .
    So many trees, so little time...
    We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
    His friends and merry men are we;
    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.

    I'm not a big guy but I feel like I just fit. There is no way 2 adults would.

    picture the summer heat all hot and sweaty with the boys stuck to your leg. You will be glad that they dont weigh 130 and toss and turn with you all night.

    From the outside you would look like two pitbulls fighting in a burlap bag.

    I'm a big guy and use a big hammock but even a little kid is to much after a very few minutes.
