I know that it should be able to move along the shock chord freely so you can vent it and position it, but once set I thought that maybe there could be some sort of strap to secure it. My problem is that as I sleep diagonally and move around the night the yeti slides off my shoulder and ends up "bananaed" next to me instead of with me in it!
Anyone have this problem or have a solution?
Yes, I have had similar problems with my synthetic so called "Yeti". But, I think the shock cord used on current down Yetis is different than mine, so I don't know how much that effects things.
One thing that has been a noticeable help is to pull the shock cord on the left side tighter than the right side. AFTER 1st putting a ~1" loop in the foot end shock cord and putting that loop over the end knots. This keeps the shockcord from rotating, then you can pull one side tighter, and movement off of your left shoulder will be minimized.
Also, you can instead or in addition to, add a small loop in the left side shockcord ( or sew a grosgrain loop onto the quilt), run a shock cord through it and then up to the ridge line. That should keep it at your left shoulder.
