Between my shoulder blades was a different story I seemed to get a little bit of a cold spot right between my shoulder blades and any time I fidgeted a little bit the cold spot would hit then slowly go away so I'm not sure if it was because I didn't have it cinched enough or to much. Any feedback?
Other then the cold spot between the shoulders I was as snug as a bug in a rug.
Did you shake it out before you hung it up, to distribute the down? You may have had a little spot where the down wasn't up to the top.
Then, cinch that thing up tighter on the shoulder end- it should hold your hammock up when no one is in it.
