Dialing in the Sag
I own two DN Hammocks and have the Ridgelines pretty much dialed in just right. My 16 year old daughter just bought a SN. Having said that, I noticed that the lengths are the same, but I'm not sure about making the ridgeline the same as the DN's. Any suggestions. I'm making this mod without my daughter being available for the fit.
I make my ridgeline as long as (well, nearly so) the hammock & slowly adjust down, ie add more sag, slowly. One of my hiking partners is about the same size as I am, our hammock sag preference is VERY different, so I suggest starting with a bit tighter sag than you think, & allow it to be adjusted by daughter to fit HER. I think there is a post about an adjustable ridge line here on HF somewhere.
I can nap in Robs hammock, but no longer than about 1/2 hour, he feels the same about the sag in my hammocks.
When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.
