Quick and dirty- see the individual pages for more details.

Just A Bridge -Coming late 2022
An End bar Bridge? This simple design has been updated with some of the tricks to increase comfort while keeping costs down. A unique construction method brings a Town’s End twist to the classic bridge.
OH… and it looks likely to become the lightest full size bridge hammock in the world. As low as 11.5 ounces with CF poles, or a more cost effective 13.5 ounces with Aluminum.
Accessories and add-ons-
Most everything you need is in the base price, but a few things are broken out to keep costs down or customize.
Just a Bug Net: $85 retail, discounted to $50 when purchased with a Bridge.
A simple “Fronkey Style” bottom entry bug net designed to fit the Happy Medium, Luxury or Big Guy Models. Fully removable and simple design. Medium size net: 9.5 ounces. Lux/BG bug net: 10.25 ounces.
Suspensions, Poles, and odd ducks-
Rather than ‘include one for free’ and jack up the price even further… I offer some suspension options.
Pole upgrades, replacements and details as well as other bridge related bits and bobs can be found here.
Harmony Trekking Poles-$180
Trekking poles with true bridge hammock spreader bar conversion- designed to pair with many of our hammocks to replace spreader bars for the absolute lightest system. Designed in partnership and Manufactured by Ruta Locura.
Vaporwear and dead ideas –
Not every thing worked out or can make it to market- if you heard of something, saw something, or read one of my wandering posts eight years ago on a forum- figured I’d put it here just so you didn’t think you were losing your mind.
Micro- $Discontinued The original ‘lightest bridge in the world’ and Stupid Light award winner.
The original XUL Micro- 9.50 ounces (no longer available), Production Micro- 10.25 ounces- no suggested weight limit.
Both with Robic 1.0 and aluminum poles. Large enough for a 20″ wide sleeping pad and really only suitable for side sleeping or very slim folks. Built before modern materials and techniques were available.
Mountain Hanger- upcoming prototype?
TBD- 120% larger version of the Big Boy… possible double person hammock with .875″ Easton Military Spec Poles.
Very expensive, very limited audience. Put this one on hold around version 3 due to Covid, life, and Just a Bridge. It might come back one day.
Differential Duo- A differential cut double layer gathered end hammock for sleeping pad use. Design works, but dropped due to production constraints.
Just a Pad Sling- An interesting concept that blended gathered end, bridge, and other ideas into a simple sling designed to be used with a sleeping pad to achieve a lighter weight and better performance with a pad.
