Look at the center hammock. what do you see???
I see the narrow hammock allows him to put his elbows outside.
I have a Grand Trunk UL Traveler hammock. I can pull the sides up and over the top of me for a light breeze on a warm day. This hammock is so generously wide, it does not pinch my shoulders. I lay in it diagonally.
The Grand Trunk Nano hammock is more narrow. I was thinking I could put my elbows out the side but would it pinch my shoulders? I do not want to have my shoulders pushed together.
Look at these "backyard hammocks":

Our backyard hammock stand was very much like the Texsport Crystal Bay Hammock/Stand Combo.
It seemed to me our backyard hammock in the 1950's was longer and more flat.
