The Lazy Hanger's Ridgeline was the brainchild of ShortRound over at Hammockforums.net. Using Ronstan Orbit Pulleys, we gain the ability to having a moving ridgeline giving you easier access to ridgeline storage systems.
This may have the ability to replace your structural ridgeline or at least work in conjunction with your current structural ridgeline. It is suited as a replacement for netless hammocks, but with the inherent nature of the net putting pressure on the ridgeline in a netted hammock, it will function easier when used alongside your current ridgeline. In initial testings the Zing It version, while being used as a structural ridgeline, was able to be moved back and forth without much effort.
If you opt to use it as a secondary ridgeline, I can use kite pulleys instead, which will save another .4 oz. Just let me know.

- The continuous loop ridgeline is adjustable
- Pouches are designed to ride on both parts of the ridgeline for best support, but can also be set up to ride just one part of the line, which will increase the range of movement.

- The large pouch is angled towards back and is side loading for easy access

- Designed so that one pouch rides the top part of the ridgeline and the other one rides the bottom, allowing you to simply pull the tail of the loop towards you, bringing the pouches towards the center
