    One thing I considered, but didn't really detail in the sketch is that a shorter hammock also won't be as deep (assuming ~83% structural ridgelines on both). So the ridgeline of the red hammock would...

    Just a crummy sketch, but green is a longer hammock than red, while suspension angles and sit height are supposed to be equal.

    I think the wording in my previous post may have been confusing.

    When I use the BBXLC and Wooki XL, I sometimes have to adjust the Wooki side to side after first getting in, but then it pretty much stays there. If you lay in the hammock and open the net, is it...

    I wonder if the perceived issue is not actual shrinking of the material, but more like scrunching of the material. If a DCF tarp is randomly stuffed into a sack and then compressed strongly, when...

    No disrespect perceived. You are correct, that the specialized cut of the bugnet is what creates the footbox shape of the hammock when the two are joined together. With the bugnet removed, the BBXLC...

    Well, the BBXLC has a somewhat unique completed shape when the bugnet is attached. The bugnet isn't just asym requiring the occupant to lay at a particular diagonal; the net also has a unique shape...
