Hammock Camping Re: Attn Coy Boy
I dont think there is any more head room in the crib but the head
room is longer. Think of a van compared to a VW beetle. The Crib is
much romier inside but I can actuall get more stuf in my HH. For
instance I hang my shoes ove the ridge line. With the poles now
outsice the Crib LEX you loose a potential overhead storage tie out.
However I would be fairly simple to add a small loop of nylon
overhead right under where the poles pass through. Out in the
middle any weight hanging would cause quite a bit of sag. I will
probably add such a loop at the foot end arch for my shoes (after
the testing is over. Thanks for the questions. I'm making notes on
allthis and will be adding headroom measurments ect to my field
