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.

And I own 7 hammocks now. I read a lot of reviews before deciding on a bridge hammock, and I'm glad I did. I couldn't be more pleased with this. The lay is flat, the stitching is perfect, the materials are high quality, and it's very stable for a bridge hammock.
I have even been taking this on section hikes because of the comfort. The weight penalty over an ultralight setup is justified by how rested and refreshed I am the next day. I still use gathered end hammocks, but this hammock is may favorite by far.
If you're considering a bridge, this is the one you want. don't waste your time with any others, get the right one FIRST.

I've been searching the various site to obtain the perfect hang. Well I've finally found it in the Ridgerunner. Form the minute I received it I set it up and was amazed in the comfort and workmanship that went into this product. I have other hammocks but have never been able to find one that supports your whole body as the ridgerunner does. The saddlebags are an added bonus with no fussing with overhead storage nor exiting the hammock to retrive the item you require. I live in Alberta and we've just received an early snow fall, I have my ridgerunner hanging in my back yard and retreat there at the end of the day just to relax. Thanks Folks for the great product. I'll be back for more. :)

This was my first hammock ever and I loved it. It came very quickly in the mail, well in advance of my trip and I only ordered it 2 1/2 weeks ahead of time. The first thing I did was examine all of the stitching, I saw no sloppiness at all. Then I picked up some carabiners to hang from and watched all the set up videos (I was not able to try it out beforehand) and it was really simple. It looked narrow when I set it up and I was worried that my majestic-sized rear end wouldn't fit but I FIT COMFORTABLY! After spending an hour in it I was feeling truly safe enough to sleep and I didn't have any problems getting in and out of it even when I got up in the middle of the night to answer nature's call. I'm pretty sure this is my favorite way to camp.

Thanks a bunch guys for the quick turn around on my order. I have a big road trip on my bike coming up and failed to order soon enough -(or so I feared) Order came in with in a week and I had time to test it for a couple nights. Slept like a log - what more can I say? Easy set up and take down. Even with the spreader poles, it is a compact stow that fits well with my gear. Very happy with this RidgeRunner!

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.
