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.

I got the RidgeRunner because the gathered end hammock I was using for camping left way too much to be desired. The RidgeRunner is far easier to set up than my other hammock, and not lying on the diagonal makes it so much simpler.
The Lynx Underquilt is also fantastic and I cannot recommend the combination enough!

This hammock is incredible! I received it last Saturday after ordering on Tuesday! I ordered the Ridgerunner with the Cloudburst Tarp and they are a perfect match. Saturday night I set it all up under the pines in my backyard and slept in it that night. It was about 80 degrees and POURED rain but I was nice, dry and comfortable. I slept in it again last night and didn't use the tarp. It got down to 55 degrees and all I needed was a thermarest between the double layer bottom and my Kifaru "doobie" as a blanket. Great nights sleep. I tried the Hennessey ultralight backpacker asym zip and there is no comparison to the the quality and comfort of Warbonnet set up. I can't wait to take this on the trail! I am hoping to add the lynx under quilt and mamba top quilt to the system. The Warbonnet team has excellent communication and it feels great to support this American company.

This is it, the hammock I have been searching for. The comfort is outstanding. The view out the sides is great. The craftsmanship is wonderful. The only aspect of this hammock that I would like to be different is that the net be fully removable, but I will likely but the net less version come winter if I really want to drop the net.
Just a couple of hangs in this hammock and I was sold, or rather my old hammocks were. I sold my custom gathered end hammock and my regular under quilt in order to order a Lynx to fit my Ridgerunner perfectly. I could not be happier with the design, comfort and construction of this hammock. Warbonnet is making great things. I will be getting a Lynx and a Spindrift to go with this hammock before the fall.

Absolute perfection! Warbonnet has earned my business for life. I purchased the Ridge-Runner with the Superfly and could not be more impressed with the quality, comfort and customer support. Great product and great company!
As a 25+ year military veteran with a couple of banged-up helicopters and more hard parachute landings that I care to recall, I am in no way able to camp in the traditional style for more than a night without significant ramifications. Hanging is the answer for me and there is no better build, better constructed, better designed hammock on the market - bar none.
If you are considering a hammock, you cannot go wrong with a Warbonnet product. I chose the ridge runner as I wanted more of a "flat" lie and I wanted to have more visibility than with a gathered device.
Figure out what is best for you and buy with confidence.

I loved both the RR and BB XLC, but can only keep one of them. I am 6 foot 4, 250 lbs. and the only problem I have with the RR is that I am at the upper limit for both size and weight for the RR; I found it a bit narrow from the elbows to the hips when laying with my arms at the side, and the head end spreader bar is a bit close to my forehead. But the hammock is otherwise comfortable and has better visibility out to the horizon than any other hammocks I have tried. Perhaps Brandon will introduce a RR XL, (or maybe I will make a DIY knock-off in XL). In any case, once again Brandon has built a better mouse trap. In the end the BB XLC is just a better fit for me now. Keep up the good work.

I heard a lot of hype about the Ridgerunner and figured I'd give it a go. I'm new to hammocks, only having some experience with a Skeeter Beater Pro. I got rid of the Skeeter because I didn't find it comfortable. I noticed pressure points in my hips, it caused hyper extension of the knees and also pinched the shoulders too much. So, I heard how comfortable the bridge hammock was and decided to buy one. My experience with the Ridgerunner is very different. I have noticed that there is no hyper extension of the knees and no shoulder squeeze in this hammock. However, I do notice some pressure on the hips . I just sleep on my side when I feel discomfort. From all the reviews I've read on other forums, this is THE most comfortable hammock.

My first hammock was a clark nx 250, my next was a wb XLC 1.7 double layer with top. Both are great hammocks but I think I have found my favorite all around hammock. I find myself just putting it up for a nap in the yard. I was worried about it tipping because I toss from one side to the other while I sleep, there was no problem. I love the saddle bags and being able to access them from inside the hammock. The craftmanship is excellant and WELL thought out, made by someone who knows what a hanger needs in their hammock. Thanks for making all your products great.

After spending a few nights here and there in my multicam double layer, I've decided that this will be my go to hammock for most of my hanging. Set-up is a breeze with the buckles and it's roomy as heck. The "lay" I achieve is flat as can be too :-)
I purchase mine with the spindrift sock and it's the only way i'll hang it!

I have slept in the hammock 3 nights since Feb 24, 2014. I am happy with everything aspect of the hammock.

After 30 years of tent camping I can honestly say I have never had a nights sleep like I did the first night in my Ridgerunner hammock. Looking forward to many good night of sleep on my 2014 NOBO appalachian trail thru hike.
