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.

Just had it out on first trip with people curiously wanting to check it out with me. Was simple to setup and the only initial negative impression was that area you lay on felt narrow to the bigger, wider, guys but it was OK to me, I'm 5'9" 235 lbs. I slept in all positions with no issues at all. 35 degrees, and with the spindrift , 40D sleeping bag, wool blanket, and an exped downmat 9 and I was shucking off my usual cold weather attire dang near to my skivvies. I could see going down to zero with a UQ and real top quilt. Everything is top notch quality and I'm glad I bought it.

Exactly what I wanted. I wanted to buy the right gear the first time. Got that accomplished with the Ridgerunner! This is so comfortable, so easy to put together, so well built - I am delighted. I bought the Lynx under quilt as well which fits perfectly. I haven't field tested it yet but I've had it set it up in my living room for a month now and I love it!

The ridge runner hammock is a great sleeping experience. Easy to set up. It feels very stable when getting in and out. It is a very good investment for me. I got the under quilt as well and I am very pleased with the warmth. It sets up in seconds.

This is my third hammock and is far and away, the best sleeper I have ever used. I just returned from a 2 night "hang" event in NH and I never slept better in a hammock. I even slept for a time on my stomach.
I am going to change the suspension though to Whoopie slings. The D rings are difficult to use when taking down the hammock.

About 15 months ago I was waking up every morning with lower back and neck pain. Like the vast majority of people, I was sleeping in a bed and I was open to whatever would make me feel better. Since beds are so expensive, I looked for other options and somewhere I stumbled across a blog or article where the author wrote of sleeping in a hammock nightly and how much better he slept and felt when he awoke, so I decided to give it a try. I started by trying a couple parachute hammocks and found that my neck and back felt better but that I didn't stay asleep or sleep as deeply because of the dreaded calf ridge that's common to parachutes.
I came across the Ridgerunner and I was impressed, but I was sold (and highly entertained!) by watching shugemery's Youtube review (not sure if the link will stay but here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3VZ8KtsYs8). It was love at first night and I've now slept in the hammock for about 12 of the last 13 months and I've only slept in a bed when traveling for the other month during that time. I still wake up sore when I sleep in a bed but feel pretty great after a night in this hammock. I used to sleep with the bottom of one foot against the inside of the other leg's knee, which is not very comfortable in the RR but not being able to do it hasn't bothered me. I sleep on my back and occasionally my side, both of which are quite comfortable.
I've been asked how I mounted it, so I'll describe that here too. I used 4 d-rings, 1 into the corner stud of each wall (2 at each end of the hammock), so the hammock runs between opposite corners of my BR and is tied off to ENO Atlas straps (which I like a lot too!) I wove the Atlas straps back and forth through the rings to make sure both rings at each end were bearing weight. I weigh about 180 so each ring and stud is carrying about 45 lbs. My BR is pretty big but I wish it was big enough to fit a stand that could run along a wall instead of running smack through the middle of the room. But it's not the biggest deal as I just unclip one side and hang it all in the opposite corner when I need to break it down (which is infrequent.)

This is a very well made hammock. It is a little tippy when I sit up, which I understand is typical of bridge style hammocks. The built in bug next works flawlessly. I bought this hammock at the beginning of July 2015 and have been out with it all but one weekend since.
I bought the double layer version and use a wool blanket inside in warmer weather. I have been using an under quilt now that it is getting colder. I think the double layer is a must have.
I bought the whoopie suspension version.
My only gripe is, they took the mitten hooks for the bug net and cut the loops off. They used the loops on the whoopie suspension to keep it from accidentally pulling through. Now I always have to flip the mitten hook around to orient it properly, to hook it on the ridge line. For a $200.00 dollar hammock, they could spend the extra 50 cents and give me 2 full mitten hooks. They could go to Joann Fabrics and buy 100 beads for $3.00 dollars for the whoopie slings.
I would definitely buy this hammock again and would recommend it to others.

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.

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.
