    That needs to happen ASAP IMO. To go with this maybe some kind of tarp that would work REAL well with bigger bridge hammocks.

    That was a possibility the Jacks told me about when I returned my first one, right after the original model came out. As far as I know, that plan is still on the back burner. But, if they finally do make this big boys model, it will also be an additional challenge with the tarp.

    I decided that I was wrong on my initial impression that the "shoulder squeeze" was too much for me, and I am not exactly petite. So I'm glad I decided to try it again. The other night in the Sipsey, I spent some time on my side, and pretty darn comfortable. But I ended up flat on my back for most of the night, and I have never been quite as comfortable without having to get something under my knees. Which is admittedly no big deal having to deal with the knees, and I have slept just fine on my back in BBs, HHs, Claytors and Speers. But I'm just sayin! That was one sweet nights sleep in the falling snow! The point is that even on my back, it is at least as comfortable as ( for me) any other hammock and maybe the most overall comfy, lack of shoulder room or not. But, it might be different with others, especially if they are much wider than me, but I aint skinny.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Sorry for your loss.

    Be sure to hang the BMB tight enough. One night I was lazy and didn't which really made it uncomfortable. Once I got up and retightened everything was perfect as usual.

    Sorry for your loss...

    Adding to what others have posted.... Positioning oneself to the head end and hanging the head end 6 inches higher seem to produce the most comfortable and level lay.
