    I'd be interested in seeing how this pans out. Like most others say, Bill's BGBH is heaven. The most comfortable I've ever been in a hammock. I kayak also but haven't tried an overnight trip yet.

    I have a foam gel mattress right now that I love & it's just soft enough to feel comfortable but firm enough for a person my size. My thoughts would be to just stick with the BGBH.

    Great idea to get used to it and try different hang angles/heights. A chart Bill has for his hammocks as far as hang angles & width between trees is pretty much spot on. I love my BGBH!
