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.

    Love my RidgeRunner. I am 6’3 and 230 so I appreciate the extra room the spreader bars give at the shoulders. The saddlebags are excellent also. i have slept in other hammocks and this is the best. In the process to shockcord the spreader bar poles just so I don’t lose a piece on the trail….

    I bought a Ridgerunner not too long ago and finally used it last weekend. I love it. Comfort and quality are top notch across the board. No more crippling and cold sleeps on the ground with roots, rocks and rain to worry about.

    I bought the hammock with the Cloudburst tarp which is again top quality, but I’ll likely get a spindrift before too long to make up for the lack of tarp doors. If I was doing it all over, I’d probably opt for the Superfly with a side pullout modification to accommodate the hammock’s spreader bars.

    The real review-worthy story though is Warbonnet’s customer service. I had a small issue with the netting and returned it for a repair job. Ryan and the rest of the team are the standard all other customer service should be held to. Attentive and quick responses which made international shipping (Canada) a breeze. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy from this company again or recommend it to anyone else.

    Best hammock there is by far. I cannot find a single falt with this rig, the set up, comfort, and it looks good too. If you are looking for a bridge hammock then this is the one that I would recommend.

    I love this hammock, it lays flat super comfy and the folks at warbonnet are awesome.i bought a black bird and didn’t like it,asked if I could return it they said no problem and shipped new one back trait away. Hopefully this hammock won’t last so long that I can’t order another one, but I think it will. If your unsure abought getting one don’t be you’ll love it and these guys are great to deal with unlike a lot of other company’s.

    This is the best Hammock I have ever slept on. I just spent 6 nights in the hammock on a Boy Scout camp out with my son. I slept great on it. I am 6′ and weigh 225. The hammock sleeps very flat and I did not wake up with sore a sore hip like I have with other hammocks. You can even sleep on your side. The Ridgerunner also does not squeeze you in like other hammocks. I give it 5 stars!

    This hammock is more comfortable to sleep in then my Tempurpedic bed at home. The quality of the hammock and the quilts are the best. Definitely buy the underquilt from Warbonnet. It fits like a glove and is made better than any underquilt out there. I love my overquilt too, so you should just go for it all. Definitely worth the investment. I also bought the sock for winter camping and stay nice and warm all winter in GA, NC, TN, KY and VA. I bought a cuben fiber tarp with doors to offset the weight of the bars. Be sure to let the company know you have a bridge hammock. To have a tarp with doors with this bridge hammock is ultra long. Hammock Gear did mine in the Camo print. As an avid backpacker, I highly recommend the Warbonnet Bridge Hammock full setup.

    I recently received my Ridgerunner and I am blown away. Absolutely love it.
    I own 8 hammocks thus far, some economy brands and some more expensive, such as a Hennessey Asym Safari. This will be my hammock for all occasions, and I will keep the others to loan or give away to friends. it is quite stable…one of my fears due to the way it is suspended, but the fears were not founded. As a physically challenge, arthritic senior, gathered end hammocks are sometimes a challenge when crawling in and out of the hammock.
    This one is a breeze. Be certain to buy the double layer model. A thin
    closed foam pad inserted in the pocket is all you need for comfort at least
    down to the fifties. Also, buy the version with mosquito net that can be completely removed and stored in the pocket at the foot.

    Wowwwwww…. Just received (July 17th, 2016) my RidgeRunner wt. “straps and buckles” (double layer bottom in camouflage color) and my Cloudburst tarp. I also got 8 lightweight Y-shape aluminum stakes from WarBonnet and about 40 meters of lightweight yellow guy-line off of Amazon. This system is definitely now the BEST camping/hiking gear I own. Been laying my 6’1″ 230lbs 51 year old frame in the RidgeRunner hammock setup in the backyard thus far, and laughing at the bugs trying to bite me, but they cant as they are unable to get through the well made nice hanging zip-up bug net (bug net comes with the system as standard). After over 2 hours of casual hanging on Sunday afternoon my wife came looking for me. She couldn’t believe I had been in the hammock for over 2 hours just enjoying our shaded tree backyard and light breeze. I have a history of lower back problems and the way the RidgeRunner lays I may go to it if I have future sciatic nerve pain and leave my $4K fancy bed to my wife.

    One thing I may thank about now that I have the RidgeRunner and Cloudburst system, is the possibility of eventually abandoning a standard sleeping bag and go with just a top quilt. I would also check into the under-quilt specifically made for the RidgeRunner on nights where temps fall below 50 degrees (often the case in the NC mountains even in the summer). I also plan to use my NeoAir Therm-a-Rest mattress in the double-layer pocket but haven’t put it in there yet in order to try it out.

    Prior to receiving the RidgeRunner, I was a ground fly-weight 2-person tent camper, but it looks like I will never go there again unless I know I will be in an area completely void of trees where I am unable to string-up my RidgeRunner.

    I would like to give the WarBonnet Team some “opportunities for improvement” pointers on this system, but I find myself dumbfounded as I cant come up with anything that needs alteration or improvement. To the Warbonnet Team, my hat is off to you for making such an excellent product…. great job!!!!!!

    The Ridgerunner provides the best sleep I have ever had in the woods. I don’t think I can go back to a gathered end now. Warbonnet quality is fantastic and is only matched by the customer service. I have absolutely no regrets about this purchase and plan to outfit this hammock completely with Warbonnet gear. Simply great! I already ordered the Lynx and next is the poncho liner and Spindrift.

    Some Important Follow-up Points Regarding my RidgeRunner (RR) Experiences:

    1. DIY Spreader Bar Disaster. I tried to rig up in the field on top of Grandfather Mountain a substitute spreader bar system for the RR using my lightweight trekking poles. BIG MISTAKE!! After getting in the hammock and laying for roughly 60 seconds, there was a tremendous pop as the trekking pole at the head-end snapped in half like a twig. I learned quickly that there are tremendous forces on those bars both pushing inwardly as well as bending pressures opposite direction of the tree anchor points. Warbonnet I am sure engineered their spreader bars to be the lightest poles you can realistically get away with while enduring the tremendous forces. I have seen some stuff about rigging up trekking poles as substitutes in various places on the Internet for the RR, but I will never go there again. My DIY system was a quick thought-up “one end poke the carbon tip through the metal bracket” other end “tie the pole to the bracket” setup. I am sure it was not ideal nor thought out in a wise manner. It might be possible using specific poles and specific setup tips on the ends. But for me, my Warbonnet spreader poles will always be along for the ride going forward.

    2. Mid-Night Air Mattress Slip & Slide. I tried to use my Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XLite Sleeping Pad in the lower sleeve underside of the RR in about 45-50 degree nightly temps. I ended up spending the night with the mattress being too high left, too high right, and sliding down towards the feet and all over the place with every slight move I made. Also, the mattress is impossible to adjust once your inside the hammock. It drove me crazy all night long as I had to get up and try to re-center it several times, to just have it slip to one side once again once I got back in the hammock. Perhaps (as I have read) something like Velcro dots or silicone dots might help with this problem, but don’t know if that will work once the body weight bares down. I am now seriously looking at the Lynx underquilt despite the crunch on the wallet. This will allow me to skip the air mattress altogether. Note: the air mattress will keep you warm enough underneath (if you can keep it centered) down to about 45 degrees from my experience. Anything below that I am pretty sure you would want a underquilt and the Lynx apparently fits the RR perfectly based on my research while others might just be semi-adequate fit.

    3. Cloud Burst Heaven. I bought the huge WarBonnet Cloud Burst tarp to use over my RR. ITS HANDS-DOWN OUTSTANDING!!! It withstood some crazy 50mph wind bursts on my second night on Grandfather Mtn., NC recently and was not phased a bit. It also kept out both down flowing rain as well as side blowing rain very well (no leaks or drips or me getting wet in the hammock other than a light mist in the air). The Cloud Burst covers a very large square area footprint so a “minimalist” would not be happy and would regard it as a big circus tent in the woods. Ultra-light folks would probably want maybe something just barely covering the RR’s overall footprint and nothing more. But if you are like me and enjoy the rain free freedom of a large cover that extends your site’s overall rain protection several feet to either side of the hammock, and you aren’t set on being a “minimalist”, then the Cloud Burst tarp, with additional 6ea. by 6ft 1/8” guy lines and S-type quick slide/connect line tensioners is the perfect RR companion.

    I still think the RR system is top notch and high quality as stated in my last review!!
