    Man you guys are in luck, I've got 'em all. I'll be in the Explorer UL tonight. I see no probs with the bottom entry and Hudson River. Just need to remember it is there and nudge it to the right when you exit.

    Thanks for the info. I'm going to pull the tigger and buy a UQ soon. So many choices it's hard to decide. Full length or 3/4, winter or 3 season?

    Great to hear. If you have any other angles of it on the BB, I'd love to see those. Are you able to snug up the HR ends so cold air doesn enter? Also did you loop the cord over the BB footbox?

    Thanks for the feedback

    Yeah, sorry for those cheesy iphone pics.

    No problem snugging up the UQ ends, especially with the long (tall) version HR. I slept barefoot in my bag's footbox in the 30's. Winds were light though.

    I'm not following your "loop the cord" reference. I just used Jacks' standard suspension with the bungee/4 mini-caribiners. I stretched Brandon's white shock cord tie outs straight through his ring and up to the HR side loops on both sides to open the interior. You can see one of these in the photo. I might omit that step at lower temps/windier conditions.

    All in all, I found the setup was GREAT.
