    Well, you don't have to hang the foot end higher in a GE hammock. If you're wanting the elevation on the torso end, then you probably want to hang it even. Bridge hammocks are meant to be flatter,...

    Yeah, not sure I'm getting the point. Are you looking for how we shop for hammock related gear, or outdoor gear in general? Like, do I go to Dutch for outdoor gear in general? Do I go to REI for...

    You can do that with reflection, just very bulky, but wicked light and effective. I think it insulates pretty well for the weight and thickness.
