The Ridgerunner (RR) is our full-featured Bridge-style hammock. It fits a user up to 6'6" and is made from breathable water-resistent fabric. Just like the Blackbird it can be used on the ground as a bug bivy, just make sure to use a groundcloth to protect the fabric. The netting unzips on 3 sides and stuffs into a storage pocket at the foot-end of the hammock. The RR has general purpose storage pockets on each side of the hammock which we call "saddlebags" , they hang on the outside of the hammock but are accessible from the inside without having to unzip the netting, they also remain fully functional when the netting is packed away. The RR is available in a single or double layer body just like the Blackbird to facilitate pad use or heavier individuals.
The Ridgerunner comes with your choice of suspension "Webbing/Buckles...A.K.A Adjustable webbing suspension, or "Whoopies with tree straps" Check out our video section and look for the video titled "Hammock Suspension Differences" to see both suspensions in action. Also, check out the "Ridge Runner setup" video in our video section. Carabiners sold seperately in our Accessory section.

I have always owned gathered end hammocks, in fact I own a Blackbird XLC and wanted to try something a little different. The Ridge Runner hammock completely exceeded all my expectations and converted me from a gathered end hammock lover to a bridge style hammock enthusiast. To see my complete video review of this hammock follow the link below to see my initial setup and review.

My first time sleeping in a hammock was in RVN in 1969 and I have slept for hundreds of nights in many different kinds of hammocks. I slept in hammocks from RVN to Panama, Germany and 9 states. The Ridgerunner is br far the most comfortable . Thanks for a great nights sleep. Rick

Taking a trip in the woods where I wanted to camp out- for a couple of days next month- I came to the conclusion that I needed a hammock because of the terrain and the fact that this area is noted for its above average rainfall. I love my spacious tent except for its weight and space it takes up in my backpack.
I studied the reviews for hammocks and curiously found not one bad review for Warbonnet hammocks. Ordered the ridge runner and spindrift and received them around when I expected. When the postal guy handed it to me I thought to myself: wow this is light. Eager to try it out I set it up in the house. At first guilty about the money I spent on the hammock, after laying in it I changed my mind: it is worth every dollar I spent.
For me, used to sleeping on the ground in a tent, or sometimes on an air mattress, this is luxury. A bridge hammock compared to a non bridge hammock is even more luxury; I kinda feel I am in my tent except this is so much more comfortable. I put the spindrift on it and decided I will probably leave it on since I got the one with the two doors and can still use the bug netting when needed . Ordered a Hennessy snake skin and found the hammock and spindrift go in it without too much trouble. Packs in my backpack well- quite pleased with that.
I ordered the multicam and glad I spent the extra money- it looks cool. It will also blend in with the environment well.
It is worth the two weeks wait because I feel this is carefully made- I mean every stitch.
My next purchase will probably be the super fly tarp and after that an under quilt. At present since this is double layer I put in a therm-a-rest z-lite sol for insulation. I can take more cold than most people so that will do until I get an under quilt.
My only thing is my wife is upset. I used two closet doors to hang the webbing. The closet doors were a little over fifteen foot distance. The hammock is quality but not the closet doors. Hey it was raining and I couldn't wait.

Comfortable hammock to lay pretty close to flat while sleeping (easy on the knees). I love the double layers to be able to slide a pad underneath. Great storage space in the sides to place important items that need quick reaching.

Purchased in Nov 2014. I have used this hammock in a variety of conditions and terrains on overnighters, multiday trips and many hangs on the back porch. I have the double layer and use a pad slipped inside on most occasions. It has even been used in a bivy application with a tarp and a couple hiking poles. This hammock is not only versatile but, durable as well. I have yet to see any fray in stitching. The quality of construction is outstanding. I'm 5' 11" at 185lbs. Plenty of room and quite comfortable. This is a well-made piece of gear that should last decades. If your on the fence about bridge style hammocks, don;t be. Side sleeping is quite comfortable, stability is a non issue and the view .... AWESOME!
I couldn't be more satisfied with my purchase.

The hammock is great! All the stitching is straight and there's small attention to detail everywhere. The side pocket are pretty handy and it's very simple and quick to setup. Also Warbonnet has excellent customer service. I needed this hammock in just 2 weeks for a trip. I messaged them and put the order in. I received it well before my trip and with enough time to actually test it out beforehand! I'm very impressed and can't wait for my trip to kick off.

I started with the Henessey hammock and I quickly decided that hammock camping was for me. However, there were things I thought should be improved. About a year later I came across Warbonnet and was immediately attracted to the RidgeRunner, but I opted for the BlackBird XLC because I'm a pretty big guy and I'm right at the rated limits of the RidgeRunner . To be sure it was an improvement but I still had knee pain from over extension. I didn't order the
Almost a year ago I ordered the RidgeRunner. This is the best hammock out there for me. I wake up in the mornings rested without the slightest hint of knee pain.
I've now used the RR on three different extended trips and each time I am impressed with the quality and attention to detail. It's worth every penny.

I have slept in my RR several nights now and it's so much more comfortable/easier than any hammock i've been in. Everything is nice and tight as far as construction goes, I've only spotted one bury that has a few fibers sticking out of the AmSteel but it's really just a few fibers. I have been following WB for at least a couple of years and reading about them and finally decided to pull the trigger. A WB tarp is in my future for sure.

Excellent. I live 15 minutes from the crest of the Blue Ridge (AT) but I gave up overnights because I hate sleeping on the ground. This hammock changes everything. Get the foot end up a little and it flattens out. Plus none of that lateral squeeze you get with a traditional hammock. Really comfortable. Very quick to put up.

Tested the Warbonnet Ridgerunner Double-Layer this weekend in the White mountains of NH. What an absolute pleasure!
40 MPH winds and rains didn't affect me at all. I stayed dry and the double-layer provided extra warmth and comfort with my Thermarest underneath.
The videos made learning the knots a snap and provided good tips on setup.
