Description

Introducing the Banyan Bridge Hammock! Created from the influence of the our very own Chameleon Hammock. The Banyan is a modular bridge hammock that adapts as you hike through the seasons. It can be netless, netted, or have a top cover. We incorporated two ridgelines which gives you a spacious feel on the inside as well as insuring you have a consistent hang every time.

Weight Limit: 250lbs
Maximum Height: 6’3″

Banyan Bridge Body: 

We started off by making the body out of our very own Hexon 1.6 fabric. It has a great strength to weight ratio and is offered in a variety of colors. We incorporated our patent pending two-way separating zippers that will give you the flexibility to not only change out your top covers, but to enter and exit from either side of your hammock. Also included are the internal and external D-Rings for attaching additional storage items.

Banyan Bridge Tops:


The Banyan has three different top options. Going topless is the first option which creates your netless bridge hammock. This is perfect if you want to save weight or take it easy just lounging around. Our next option is the Nano-no-seeum bug net which keeps you protected from the smallest of biting insects. Lastly we have the Banyan top cover which is meant to be used for chilly nights as it helps to keep heat in, while allowing condensation to vent out.  Both top options zipper into the Banyan’s zipper track.

Hardware:


Our strong, lightweight titanium Bridge Bones were designed specifically for the Banyan Bridge hammock. Spliced onto the dog bones, their function is to hold both ridgelines in place.  In all four corners of the bridge hammock you will find Bridge Hammock Ends. They are a multi-purpose piece of hardware that connect to the hammock, hold the spreader bars, attach the dog bones, and keep your under quilt in place.

Ridgeline and Dog Bones:


Both are uniquely designed for our Banyan Bridge hammock. The ridgelines are made out of 1.75mm gray Lash-It!® with a 1″ fixed eye on either end. They connect to the bridge bones which are fastened to the dog bones on either end. We made the ridgelines removable so you can switch out tops and change out accessories. Having both ridgelines incorporated in your bridge hammock gives you ample interior space as well as providing a consist hang every time.
For our Dog Bones we used 7/64 Amsteel and each end has a 1.5″ fixed eye. The dog bones are completely removable and can be replaced down the road if needed. Bridge bones are integrated on all four dogs bones as a secure way to keep your ridgelines in place.

Accessories:


All accessories clip onto the hammock body’s D-rings. The accessories we offer are, a head organizer, foot pocket, ridgeline shelf, and a ridgeline shelf organizer; all of which are made specifically for the Banyan Bridge. The already existing Chameleon storage pocket and bottle holder are universal to both hammocks.

    Dave Denny

    Thank you for everything you do and I appreciate the challenges faced with keeping up on orders with all the CVD-19 restrictions. That said, is there an estimated date/timeframe for when this will be available for order again? Is there a wait list? Thanks for all you do and your awesome gear!

    Question

    gavainm

    How well does the Banyan suspension work with whoopie slings? I have Dutch whoopie slings with whoopie hooks for my Chaemeleon, and love that suspension. I rather just keep using it for my new Banyan Bridge if that works (if not, I also still have my Beetle Buckle suspension).

      I would go by the length of the lynx compared to the length of the Banyan and if those are ok together you should be fine.

  6. Question

    Jill Heade

    I’m curious. Hexon 1.6 is rated to 350 lb…but the weight limit on the Banyan is 250. What is the limiting factor in this instance? The hardware? I’m well above 250 so I’d never be able to use it, sadly, but I’d like to know where the weakness lies. Thanks!

      Most quilts should work just fine with some minor adjustments. Take a look at Spiguyver Backpacking’s video where he uses a standard quilt on his Banyan. https://youtu.be/brrQmr4JQpk?t=567

    Question

    Jason Beckman

    Are there any plans to expand this to different materials and/or lengths to accommodate taller and heavier individuals? As it stands I would love to try this hammock, but find myself at the very top of both the height and weight ratings which is not usually a comfortable place to be.

    gavainm

    Is it possible to have an alternate color tag on one end of the hammock/bug net/winter cover? For us colorblind folks, red/green is a challenging distinction to make. Is the tag a normal green color, or the green of Amsteel (which looks grey to me)?

      It is probably about 25*. What’s nice with the Banyan is you can use the ridgelines as a guide to your hang angle just like you do with a gathered end hammock.

    Have you tried it with an inflatable pad instead of a quilt? It certainly should work better than a gathered end hammock. Are there any plans to provide a double layer setup? Thanks!

      We will not be able to modify the length of the hammock due to the fixed zipper length.
