comment What are the downsides to sleeping in a hammock on a multi-day hike?
Most folks think of lying in a hammock in line with the two trees (or whatever main anchors you use), sometimes called a "banana". If you instead lie diagonally (~45 degrees), the hammock material flattens out, and you can get pretty flat. I have seen folks comfortably lie on their stomach with some configurations.
