back/torso was perfectly supported.

seem to have found what you like and is comfortable for you. Maybe a
good idea to stick with it.
I'm just having a lot of fun in designing something completely new and
different and also enjoying the fact that for me it works so very well.
I'm really not trying to talk anybody into the Bridge Hammock instead
of something else. I just get enthusiastic and like to share that with
others. If I didn't enjoy the Bridge Hammock I just wouldn't do it.
Sorry if that comes across as being pushy or anything - it's not meant
to be that way.
