    That 14' is what has prevented me from ordering one, but I'd really like to try a bridge.
    Probably. The two walls I can hang from inside are 136 apart, and the ridgelines were saggy before I used the carabiner trick to tighten them up. I was connecting the two dogbone ends to a tree strap with a becket hitch that was probably less than a foot apart (from hammock to the wall) on each side. My wall anchors are probably a little too high now for a bridge hammock; I put them in when I was using my GE. Id bet I could get it flatter/closer to the wall if my anchors were lower. I got the sense that it was a little more curved than its probably supposed to be but I was okay.

    In my opinion 12 would probably be too close; at least with any kind of suspension. Maybe you could get it to work if you were connecting the dogbones to your wall anchors with a weight bearing carabiner or something directly but I wouldnt be too optimistic. Maybe someone else has experience with it?

    As a stylish way of making your gear your own it looks great! With poor night vision I get all of my quilts, UQs and hammock bodies made with light colors so I can see things like socks and a stocking cap that I stow away in the hammock before bed. That pattern looks almost good enough to make me reconsider, but, I know I'd be spending 10-20 minutes just trying to find my socks at night with that dark and crazy pattern.
