    That now makes sense. That's considered left lay. (Head right, feet left) I agree that it can be confusing.

    I think this is a good idea. I expect quite a few people would like an 11' option.

    Warbonnet has an UQP that zips to the Eldorado bug net or top cover. That set-up may well work on other 11' hammocks. Not sure about the idea of having the UQP rotated to the top however.

    That won't "reinforce" the foot-end anchor. If anything it would send a bit of shock to the head-end anchor.
