The structural ridgeline of a hammock helps set the sag right every time to achieve the perfect hang. It's to be used as an indicator for the perfect hang and a place to hang things off like a ridgeline organiser or a Hangtime Hook as in the photo's (these are not included with the ridgeline)
When you hang your hammock with no weight in it, the ridgeline should be loose and then tighten up when you get in it. If it is too tight you need to increase the angle of your suspension, if it's too loose you need to decrease the angle.
Our ridgelines are made with 1.75mm Dyneema Mallee Wire which is custom made for us by Lawson Outdoor Equipment in the USA.
It is available in grey with orange fleck, or orange with grey fleck.
We can customise any length but we offer the ridgeline in 2.5 and 2.8m lengths this caters for the most common length hammocks of 3m and 3.3m. Your ridgeline should be around 83% of your hammock length. So the 2.5 fits a 3m hammock and the 2.8 fits a 3.3m hammock.
These are custom spliced by us here in Tasmania and come with two loops on either end which can be simply placed over your suspension at either end of your hammock.
Weight for the 2.5m ridgeline is 4 grams.
