    You can easily achieve a better fit of the Wooki by re-whipping it a bit differently. No sewing necessary. I posted a couple of pictures of the process here.

    So I was looking at my Wookie last night, I ended up just making a small overhand knot on the left side foot end. This tightened it up just right on my shoulder (left side for me, same side as the knot). Pic attached.

    EDIT: @hutzelbein's re-whipping solution is way more elegant and aesthetically pleasing though.

    That does seem like a simple solution. I actually started there then got skeered and didn't put any weight on it. Figured it would be permanent once loaded. Permanent wouldn't be so bad actually as long as it worked out right the first time. I was thinking, when loaded, the knot would slip to the right point and then hopefully stay put? Also wondering if doing this would affect the fit whe switching it to a non-WB hammock.

    I had the same reservations, but it seems to have worked out just right though (thanks heaven). Good point about non-WB hammocks. I will get my DIY hammock out tonight and try it out with the "modded" Wookie.

    I hooked up the Wooki to my DIY hammock tonight and took a couple of pics. The Wooki doesn't exactly directly translate to a non WB hammock, at least not without a little help. I typically just connect a little length of shock cord to a carabiner on the foot end and adjust the length as needed. With this knot mod I did on the Wooki, it doesn't fit quite as easily on the DIY hammock as it has in the past. As I lay in the hammock, the left side of the Wooki (where the knot is) comes up way too high. It still doesn't have any gaps on that shoulder, but it just comes up too high IMO. I don't know if the pictures I took will make that very clear, but here they are:

    Knotty mod for Wookie?

    Thanks for checking that out and posting. I may just leave well enough alone. My fear is to tinker with something that already works so well and wind up regreting it

    10-4 on that. I have other underquilts that I use with my DIY hammock, so the Wookie just pairs with my Eldorado 99% of the time. I think that little knot mod on the Wookie will work just right for me on the Eldorado, so I will just leave it for now.

    Tinkering with things just for the sake of doing it, especially with expensive gear, generally makes me nervous.
