We truly enjoyed the unique Warbonnet Ridgerunner and the versatility in sleeping options it provided. This rig is a game-changer when it comes to hammock camping. Made from top-of-the-line materials, this is the only model we tested that comes with lightweight spreader bars, allowing a user to lay comfortably on their side or even stomach! For this reason, we awarded the Ridgerunner a Top Pick Award for Side Sleeping. Sleeping in a hammock can be a no-brainer for a back sleeper, but for those who aren't able to sleep in that position, things can get uncomfortable after a couple of hours. Most hammocks allow for a user to get into a diagonal position and achieve a decently flat side lay, but this usually only really works on one side. If you want to turn over, you may find your face smashed against the fabric, and you can forget about laying on your stomach. But with the Ridgerunner, you are essentially in a floating cot, and a plethora of sleeping positions are readily available.
This classy hammock also sports an integrated bug net that can be conveniently stowed out of the way when not needed, as well as nice large gear pockets along both sides. We tested the Double Layer, which also gave us a sleeve to house a sleeping pad. All in all, we found the Ridgerunner to be fun, innovative, and extremely versatile.
