I used one of my new models on my hike this week and had intended to try it out on a lot of the hammocks there at the SEHHA but unfortunately had to cut the SEHHA event from the schedule. I can say that the new UQ worked fine on the BB. On Wednesday morning, we awoke to high winds and snow. I was using the UQ and a short section of WM pad that I use in my pack. The trees I was hanging from were not quite ideal and was unable to get a good enough lie to test out the footbox very much. I did use a grip clip on the footbox side and attached a loop of cord to the UQ tieout nearest the corner of the footbox and did not have any issues with cold feet. The next night, the temps were in the mid 40s and again, I was toasty warm all night despite high winds. Good site selection provided protection from the winds, but we were on a pretty steep slope which made for interesting setup and tear down the next day. I still want to work on the length and width of this model for the BB. It will work as is for other gathered end hammocks.
