      Is the Speer the only hammock with the "sweet pocket" for the feet?  I'm getting a hammock for Christmas and I'm having a hard time deciding which one to go with.

      Same way.  The Speer and all of my variants of it sleep across the
      diagonal to be reasonably flat.  When I first started sleeping on my
      side,  one of my knees hurt a little.  Crossing my feet removed that pain.

      When I look at photos of us in these hammocks, they look like we are
      bananas.  However, the experience laying/sleeping across the diagonal is
      that it feels flat.  There is a nice sweet pocket for the feet off to
      either side of the middle in the Speer hammock.  Finding this  foot
      pocket is the secret to sleeping on the diagonal.
